BACKGROUND In self-renewing, pluripotent cells, bivalent chromatin modification is thought to silence (H3K27me3) lineage control genes while 'poising' (H3K4me3) them for subsequent activation during differentiation, implying an important role for epigenetic modification in directing cell fate decisions. However, rather than representing an equivalently(More)
Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) contribute to innate immunity as well as numerous diseases processes such as deep vein thrombosis, myocardial ischemia, and autoimmune disease. To date, most knowledge on NETs formation has been gathered via the qualitative microscopic examination of individual neutrophils in vitro, or aggregate structures in vivo. Here(More)
The successful targeting of neuroblastoma (NB) by associating tumor-initiating cells (TICs) is a major challenge in the development of new therapeutic strategies. The subfamily of aldehyde dehydrogenases 1 (ALDH1) isoenzymes, which comprises ALDH1A1, ALDH1A2, and ALDH1A3, is involved in the synthesis of retinoic acid, and has been identified as functional(More)
