The molecule responsible for the enzyme activity plasma membrane (PM) aminophospholipid translocase (APLT), which catalyzes phosphatidylserine (PS) translocation from the outer to the inner leaflet of the plasma membrane, is unknown in mammals. A Caenorhabditis elegans study has shown that ablation of transbilayer amphipath transporter-1 (TAT-1), which is(More)
Aberrant expression of the presynaptic serotonin 1A receptor (5-HT(1A)-R) because of a polymorphism in the 5-HT(1A)-R gene is associated with severe depression in human, whereas its absence up to postnatal day 21 (P21) in the forebrain of mice results in heightened anxiety in adulthood. These observations collectively indicate that the 5-HT(1A)-R has a(More)
BACKGROUND Senescence marker protein-30 (SMP30), whose expression declines during aging in rat liver, has been proposed as an important aging marker. Besides apoptosis, SMP30 also protects cells against various other injuries by enhancement of membrane calcium-pump activity. The mechanism of this differential gene expression mechanism is not known.(More)
In vitro studies have shown that curcumin, a polyphenol from the culinary component turmeric, has strong anticancer properties. However, there is no consensus on its therapeutic effect in human. Our earlier experiments involving implanted murine melanoma B16F10 cells in the neck or brain of syngeneic C57BL6 mice showed that tail vein injection of curcumin(More)
Cathepsin L is a cysteine protease which degrades connective tissue proteins like collagen, elastin and fibronectin. Increase in the expression of cathepsin L in aged kidney leading to considerable loss of organ function in old age. Recently it has been reported that SARS-CoV or SARS-CoV spike protein-pseudotyped retroviruses utilize the enzymatic activity(More)
BACKGROUND Pathological classification of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) is problematic as it relies on subjective criteria. We developed an imaging method that uses spectroscopy to assess the fluorescent intensity of cervical biopsies derived directly from hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stained tissues. METHODS Archived H&E slides were identified(More)
