The POU5F1 gene codes for the OCT4 transcription factor, which is one of the key regulators of pluripotency. Its transcription, alternative splicing, and alternative translation leading to the synthesis of the active, nuclear localized OCT4A has been described in detail. Much less, however, is known about actively transcribed OCT4 pseudogenes, several of(More)
BACKGROUND Different immunotherapy approaches for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases are being developed and tested in clinical studies worldwide. Their resulting complex experimental data should be properly evaluated, therefore reliable normal healthy control baseline values are indispensable. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS To assess intra-(More)
Immunocytochemistry is a powerful tool for detection and visualization of specific molecules in living or fixed cells, their localization and their relative abundance. One of the most commonly used fluorescent DNA dyes in immunocytochemistry applications is 4′,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole dihydrochloride, known as DAPI. DAPI binds strongly to DNA and is used(More)
Amniotic membrane (AM) is the innermost, multilayered part of the placenta. When harvested, processed and stored properly, its properties, stemming from AM biological composition, make it a useful tissue for ophthalmic surgery. AM was shown to have several beneficial effects: it promotes epithelization, has antimicrobial effects, decreases inflammation,(More)
Toll-like receptor (TLR) 7 has an important role in immune activation processes and represents an emerging drug discovery target for the development of immunomodulators. Three-dimensional similarity-based virtual screening was performed using the Rapid Overlay of Chemical Structures software (vROCS version 3.1.1. OpenEye Scientific Software, Santa Fe, NM.(More)
BACKGROUND Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is among the most aggressive cancers with a poor prognosis in spite of a plethora of established diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers and treatment modalities. Therefore, the current goal is the detection of novel biomarkers, possibly detectable in the blood of GBM patients that may enable an early diagnosis and are(More)
BACKGROUND Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is a brain tumour with a very high patient mortality rate, with a median survival of 47 weeks. This might be improved by the identification of novel diagnostic, prognostic and predictive therapy-response biomarkers, preferentially through the monitoring of the patient blood. The aim of this study was to define the(More)
INTRODUCTION Total extrusion and loss of the talus is a rare injury with a wide choice of appropriate treatment, but rarely resulting in a fully functional recovery. We report on an uncommon case, both for the severity of the injury and for the uncommon treatment due to the patient's rejection of secondary surgery. CASE PRESENTATION We treated a(More)
Due to an error in the preparation of Figure 3, the GAPDH panel for hESCs in Figure 3A is incorrect and duplicates the GAPDH panel for differentiating hESCs in Figure 3B. The authors would also like to provide a clarification in relation to Figure 3C. The bands in the original gel for CRIPTO1 and NANOG were rearranged to display them in the order d0, d3, d7(More)
