Differential plasma protein binding to metal oxide nanoparticles.
Nanoparticles rapidly interact with the proteins present in biological fluids, such as blood. The proteins that are adsorbed onto the surface potentially dictate the biokinetics of the nanomaterialsExpand

Nanoparticle-induced unfolding of fibrinogen promotes Mac-1 receptor activation and inflammation.
The chemical composition, size, shape and surface characteristics of nanoparticles affect the way proteins bind to these particles, and this in turn influences the way in which nanoparticles interactExpand

Estimation of the pore size of the large-conductance mechanosensitive ion channel of Escherichia coli.
The open channel diameter of Escherichia coli recombinant large-conductance mechanosensitive ion channels (MscL) was estimated using the model of Hille (Hille, B. 1968. Pharmacological modificationsExpand

N-and O-acetylation of aromatic and heterocyclic amine carcinogens by human monomorphic and polymorphic acetyltransferases expressed in COS-1 cells.
Human monomorphic and polymorphic arylamine acetyltransferases (EC 2.3.1.5) were expressed in monkey kidney COS-1 cells and used to study the N- and O-acetylation of a number of carcinogenic aminesExpand

Proteasomal Degradation of N-Acetyltransferase 1 Is Prevented by Acetylation of the Active Site Cysteine
Many drugs and chemicals found in the environment are either detoxified by N-acetyltransferase 1 (NAT1, EC 2.3.1.5) and eliminated from the body or bioactivated to metabolites that have the potentialExpand

Cross-linking studies and membrane localization and assembly of radiolabelled large mechanosensitive ion channel (MscL) of Escherichia coli.
The gene encoding the large conductance mechanosensitive ion channel (MscL) of Escherichia coli and several deletion mutants of mscL were cloned under the control of the T7 RNA polymerase promoter.Expand

Metabolism of drugs and other xenobiotics in the gut lumen and wall.
Metabolism in the gut lumen and wall can decrease the bioavailability and the pharmacological effects of a wide variety of drugs. Bacterial flora in the gut, the environmental pH and oxidative orExpand

Role of intratumoural heterogeneity in cancer drug resistance: molecular and clinical perspectives
Drug resistance continues to be a major barrier to the delivery of curative therapies in cancer. Historically, drug resistance has been associated with over‐expression of drug transporters, changesExpand

Genomic organization of human arylamine N-acetyltransferase Type I reveals alternative promoters that generate different 5'-UTR splice variants with altered translational activities.
In humans, a polymorphic gene encodes the drug-metabolizing enzyme NAT1 (arylamine N-acetyltransferase Type 1), which is widely expressed throughout the body. While the protein-coding region of NAT1Expand
