MicroRNA expression in response to murine myocardial infarction: miR-21 regulates fibroblast metalloprotease-2 via phosphatase and tensin homologue.
AIMS MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level by either degradation or translational repression of a target mRNA. Encoded in theExpand

IL-21 mediates apoptosis through up-regulation of the BH3 family member BIM and enhances both direct and antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity in primary chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells in
Interleukin-21 (IL-21) is a recently identified gamma-chain receptor cytokine family member that promotes B-cell apoptosis as well as activation of innate immune system. Based on this, weExpand

Upregulation of FGF-2 in reactive spinal cord astrocytes following unilateral lumbar spinal nerve ligation
Abstract. Spinal nerve ligation results in dramatic changes in spinal cord primary C-afferent fibers, which include atrophy with an accompanied decrease in calcitonin-gene-related peptide (CGRP).Expand

Flavopiridol causes early mitochondrial damage in chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells with impaired oxygen consumption and mobilization of intracellular calcium.
Effective administration of flavopiridol in advanced-stage chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is often associated with early biochemical evidence of tumor cell lysis. Previous work using other cellExpand

Intestinal Microbiota Disruption Reduces Regulatory T Cells and Increases Respiratory Viral Infection Mortality Through Increased IFNγ Production
Alterations in gastrointestinal microbiota indirectly modulate the risk of atopic disease, but effects on respiratory viral infections are less clear. Using the murine paramyxoviral virus type 1,Expand

Differential change in mRNA expression of p75 and Trk neurotrophin receptors in nucleus gracilis after spinal nerve ligation in the rat
In peripheral neuropathy (PN), dorsal column (DC) fibers that synapse in the nucleus gracilis (NuGr) mediate expression of mechanical allodynia and have increased expression of brain-derivedExpand

Mcl-1 Is a Relevant Therapeutic Target in Acute and Chronic Lymphoid Malignancies: Down-Regulation Enhances Rituximab-Mediated Apoptosis and Complement-Dependent Cytotoxicity
Purpose: The antiapoptotic Bcl-2 family member protein Mcl-1 is dynamically regulated in transformed B-cells, has a short mRNA and protein half-life, and is rapidly processed during apoptosis.Expand

Generation of Knock-out Primary and Expanded Human NK Cells Using Cas9 Ribonucleoproteins.
CRISPR/Cas9 technology is accelerating genome engineering in many cell types, but so far, gene delivery and stable gene modification have been challenging in primary NK cells. For example, transgeneExpand

Anti-angiogenic activity of sesterterpenes; natural product inhibitors of FGF-2-induced angiogenesis
Angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels from the pre-existing vasculature is of physiological and pathological importance. We have investigated the anti-angiogenic potential of two naturallyExpand
