Role of caveolae and caveolins in health and disease.
Although they were discovered more than 50 years ago, caveolae have remained enigmatic plasmalemmal organelles. With their characteristic "flasklike" shape and virtually ubiquitous tissueExpand

Lung remodeling and pulmonary hypertension after myocardial infarction: pathogenic role of reduced caveolin expression.
OBJECTIVES Pulmonary hypertension (PH) and lung structural remodeling are frequent complications of congestive heart failure (CHF). Yet, the molecular mechanisms involved in CHF-induced PH and lungExpand

Loss of Nkx2.8 deregulates progenitor cells in the large airways and leads to dysplasia.
Nkx2.8, a homeodomain transcription factor, has been characterized in liver cancer and in the developing central nervous system. We now show that this factor is also expressed in the lung, where itExpand

Developmental regulation of PV-1 in rat lung: association with the nuclear envelope and limited colocalization with Cav-1.
Plasmalemma vesicle protein-1 (PV-1) is a caveolae-associated protein that is enriched in lung endothelial cells. The PV-1 protein is first detected in the lung at embryonic day 12, before that ofExpand

Development and characterization of six monoclonal antibodies to hemagglutinin-70 of Clostridium botulinum and their application in a sandwich ELISA.
Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNT) are produced by Clostridium botulinum and cause severe neuroparalytic disease that if not treated quickly is often fatal. The toxin is produced as a 150 kDa precursorExpand
