The type III secretion system (TTSS) is a dedicated bacterial pathogen protein targeting system that directly affects host cell signalling and response pathways. Our goal was to identify host responses to the Pseudomonas aeruginosa effectors, introduced into target cells utilizing the TTSS. We carried out expression profiling of a human lung pneumocyte cell(More)
Glycogen storage disorder 1b (GSD 1b) is a disorder of carbohydrate metabolism caused by a deficiency of the glucose-6 phosphate transporter complex (G6PT). The classical phenotype is a severe disorder requiring intensive dietary therapy and often treatment with G-CSF for neutropenia [1]. However, recent reports indicate that some patients with GSD-1a [2](More)
In neurodegeneration, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), apoptosis results in the loss of valuable neurons. A key mechanism in apoptosis is the activation of caspase-3. Caspase-3 activity first becomes detectable early in apoptosis, continues to increase as cells undergo apoptosis, and rapidly declines in late stages of apoptosis. Its activity is an early(More)
The design, synthesis, and pharmacology of a new class of compounds possessing both thromboxane receptor antagonist and thromboxane synthase inhibitory properties are described. Replacement of the phenol group of the known thromboxane antagonist series 4(Z)-6-[(4RS,5SR)-4-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1,3-dioxan-5-yl] hex-4-enoic acid by a 3-pyridyl group led to a(More)
