The leaf protein pattern from drought-tolerant and drought-sensitive wheat varieties subjected to severe soil drought but with the possibility for recover from stress was studied by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE). The spots representing Rubisco large subunit (RLS) were identified using polyclonal antibodies against Rubisco and(More)
Both mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and dendritic cells (DCs) are engaged in the regulation of the immune response parallel to their numerous functions. The main objective of this study was to compare the effects of mesenchymal stem cells isolated from human adipose tissue or human bone marrow on the expression of specific cell surface markers as well as the(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a new and promising tool for therapy of autoimmune disorders. In recent years their possibility to take part in the modulation of the immune response is discussed. The exact mechanisms for immunoregulation realized by MSCs are not clear yet, but interactions with other immunoregulatory cells may be involved in this process.(More)
PROBLEM Maternal immune response to fetal tissues is modified in such way that it favors the development of pregnancy. Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-G, progesterone and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been identified as potent immunomodulatory agents in different experimental systems and the interactions between these three factors are studies in this(More)
This study aimed to clarify the molecular mechanisms involved in ovarian carcinogenesis, and to identify candidate molecular targets for its diagnosis and treatment. The genome-wide gene expression profiles of 22 epithelial ovarian carcinomas were analyzed with a microarray representing 38,500 genes, in combination with laser microbeam microdissection. A(More)
Cohesive sets play an important role in computability theory. Here we use cohesive sets to build nonstandard versions of the rationals. We use Koenigsmann’s work on Hilbert’s Tenth Problem to establish that these nonstandard fields are rigid. As a consequence we obtain results about automorphisms of the lattices of computably enumerable vector spaces(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND The literature data show that the most frequently affected chromosomes in ovarian carcinogenesis are 1, 8 and 17. In the present study we aimed to define more precisely at a high resolution the genomic imbalances of these chromosomes in ovarian cancer and to determine genomic markers separating tumors of different histological types and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether first-trimester human decidua contains multipotent stromal cells capable of differentiating into other cell lines. DESIGN In vitro-cultured decidual stromal cells were analyzed by flow cytometry and induced to differentiate into osteogenic and adipogenic lineages, endothelial cells, and PRL-secreting mature decidual cells.(More)
This review discusses the presence and characteristics of multipotent stromal cells in human endometrium and decidua. A number of research groups have reported the isolation and characterization of multipotent stromal cells from the basal layer of the endometrium, and in a single case just from the menstrual blood, i.e. the superficial functional layer.(More)
