One factor limiting the therapeutic efficacy of cord blood (CB) hematopoietic progenitor cell (HPC) transplantation is the low cell dose of the graft. This is associated with an increased incidence of delayed or failed engraftment. Cell dose can be increased and the efficacy of CB transplantation potentially improved, by ex vivo CB expansion before(More)
Intracellular ion concentration and respiratory activity in the marine cyanobacterium Spirulina subsalsa was analyzed during cell transition from saline to hypersaline medium. During salt upshock, an early phase of Na+ and Cl- influx was observed, followed by an adaptation phase where both Na+ and Cl- were excluded from the cell. Respiration in intact cells(More)
