BACKGROUND Peritoneal dialysis fluids (PDFs) have been shown to alter mesothelial cell functions. To further determine the mechanisms involved, we investigated the effects of glucose, glucose degradation products (GDPs) and advanced glycation end products (AGEs) on the inhibition of human peritoneal mesothelial cell (HPMC) proliferation and the induction of(More)
BACKGROUND Conventional peritoneal dialysis fluids (PDFs) have been shown to damage the mesothelial layer and are associated with the development of peritoneal fibrosis and neoangiogenesis. New-generation PDFs have therefore been developed with physiological pH and reduced levels of glucose degradation products (GDPs), precursors of advanced glycation end(More)
The Ensembl (http://www.ensembl.org/) database project provides a bioinformatics framework to organize biology around the sequences of large genomes. It is a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of large genome sequences, available via interactive website, web services or flat files. As well as being one of the leading sources of genome(More)
