Recent studies suggested that a Ca(2+) signal is involved in the regulation of cell division. For example, using a confocal imaging technique, we have shown that a localized Ca(2+) elevation was clearly associated with the onset of cytokinesis in zebrafish embryo [Chang and Meng (1995) J. Cell Biol. 131:1539-1545]. This finding was later confirmed in(More)
Sepsis is the host's deleterious systemic inflammatory response to microbial infections. Here we report an essential role for the estrogen sulfotransferase (EST or SULT1E1), a conjugating enzyme that sulfonates and deactivates estrogens, in sepsis response. Both the cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) and lipopolysacharide (LPS) models of sepsis induce the(More)
