Genotypic characterization of Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus in asymptomatic infected subjects from isolated populations.
Molecular epidemiological studies of Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) have concentrated on characterization of viral strains in tumour biopsy samples from Kaposi's sarcoma (KS)Expand

Identification of a tightly regulated hypoxia-response element in the promoter of human plasminogen activator inhibitor-1.
Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) plays a key role in control of coagulation and tissue remodeling and has been shown to be regulated by a number of cell stimuli, among those hypoxia. In thisExpand

Pericellular oxygen depletion during ordinary tissue culturing, measured with oxygen microsensors
Abstract.  Recent research has found important differences in oxygen tension in proximity to certain mammalian cells when grown in culture. Oxygen has a low diffusion rate through cell culture media,Expand

Cell-dependent differential cellular uptake of PNA, peptides, and PNA-peptide conjugates.
Peptide nucleic acid (PNA) oligomers were conjugated to cell-penetrating peptides: pAnt, a 17-residue fragment of the Drosophila protein Antennapedia, and pTat, a 14-amino acid fragment of HIVExpand

The Human Umbilical Cord Blood: A Potential Source for Osteoblast Progenitor Cells
The presence of non-hematopoietic stem cells in the human umbilical cord blood (hUCB) is debated. In this study, we report the isolation of a population of fibroblast-like cells with osteogenic andExpand

Risk factors for Kaposi's‐sarcoma‐associated herpesvirus (KSHV/HHV‐8) seropositivity in a cohort of homosexual men, 1981–1996
A newly identified herpesvirus has been associated with Kaposi's sarcoma. We determined risk factors for Kaposi's‐sarcoma‐associated herpesvirus/human herpesvirus 8 (KSHV/HHV‐8) seropositivity andExpand

Taking advantage of tumor cell adaptations to hypoxia for developing new tumor markers and treatment strategies
Cancer cells in hypoxic areas of solid tumors are to a large extent protected against the action of radiation as well as many chemotherapeutic drugs. There are, however, two different aspects of theExpand

Induction of Adipocyte‐Like Phenotype in Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells by Hypoxia
Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) have the capacity to differentiate along several pathways to form bone, cartilage, tendon, muscle, and adipose tissues. The adult hMSCs reside in vivo in the boneExpand

Isolation and characterization of human placental trophoblast subpopulations from first-trimester chorionic villi.
A method for the simultaneous preparation of highly enriched human placental trophoblast populations (villous and extravillous) from first-trimester placental villi (5 to 12 weeks) by usingExpand

Quantitative transcriptional profiling of ATDC5 mouse progenitor cells during chondrogenesis.
During the differentiation of a mouse chondroprogenitor cell line, ATDC5, an analysis of the transcription cartilage-related genes was carried out using real-time RT-PCR in a semiquantitativeExpand
