Human pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most aggressive and lethal malignancies in the world and despite great efforts in research types of treatment remain limited. A frequently detected alteration in PDACs is a truncated O-linked N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) glycosylation with expression of the Tn antigen. Changes in O-glycosylation(More)
Elapid snake venom is a highly valuable, but till now mainly unexplored, source of pharmacologically important peptides. We analyzed the peptide fractions with molecular masses up to 10 kDa of two elapid snake venoms-that of the African cobra, N. m. mossambica (genus Naja), and the Peninsula tiger snake, N. scutatus, from Kangaroo Island (genus Notechis).

The development of dendritic arbors is critical in neuronal circuit formation, as dendrites are the primary sites of synaptic input. Morphologically specialized dendritic protrusions called spines represent the main postsynaptic compartment for excitatory neurotransmission. Recently, we demonstrated that chicken acidic leucine-rich epidermal growth factor(More)
