During immunological rejection of the transplanted heart, cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) infiltrate the myocardium and by damaging the myocytes contribute to loss of function. To address one important aspect of heart transplant rejection, we investigated in guinea pig ventricular myocytes how CTL-derived lytic granules containing the pore-forming protein(More)
Previous studies by others have shown that transplanted rat kidneys have abnormally low clearances of paraaminohippuric acid, inulin, and creatinine, due to rejection and/or to warm-ischemia-induced injury. In the present studies, randomly bred Sprague-Dawley rats were used as donors and recipients. The left kidneys of recipients were removed, and the right(More)
The enzyme-mimicking activity of iron oxide based nanostructures has provided a significant advantage in developing advanced molecular sensors for biomedical and environmental applications. Herein, we introduce the horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-like activity of gold-loaded nanoporous ferric oxide nanocubes (Au-NPFe2O3NC) for the development of a molecular(More)
