SPARC (secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine) induces apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells.
Secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) is an extracellular Ca(2+)-binding matricellular glycoprotein that associates with cell populations undergoing migration, morphogenesis, andExpand

Expression of Nitric Oxide Synthase Isoforms and Nitric Oxide Production in Acute Pancreatitis and Associated Lung Injury
Background/Aims: The role of nitric oxide (NO) has been increasingly implicated in the pathophysiology of acute pancreatitis (AP). Studies have shown increased NO production in AP although not allExpand

Role of MCP-1 in endotoxemia and sepsis.
Sepsis is a complex clinical syndrome resulting from a harmful host inflammatory response to infection. Similarly, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induced endotoxemia is marked by the activation ofExpand

Sustained Activation of the Tyrosine Kinase Syk by Antigen in Mast Cells Requires Local Ca2+ Influx through Ca2+ Release-activated Ca2+ Channels*
Mast cell activation involves cross-linking of IgE receptors followed by phosphorylation of the non-receptor tyrosine kinase Syk. This results in activation of the plasma membrane-bound enzymeExpand

Decoding of Cytoplasmic Ca2+ Oscillations through the Spatial Signature Drives Gene Expression
Cytoplasmic Ca(2+) oscillations are a universal signaling mode that activates numerous cellular responses [1, 2]. Oscillations are considered the physiological mechanism of Ca(2+) signaling becauseExpand

Hydrogen Sulfide Up-Regulates Substance P in Polymicrobial Sepsis-Associated Lung Injury1
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has been shown to induce the activation of neurogenic inflammation especially in normal airways and urinary bladder. However, whether endogenous H2S would regulateExpand

Effect of tumour necrosis factor on growth of Ehrlich ascites tumour cells in vitro and in vivo.
Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) suppressed the growth of Ehrlich ascites tumour (EAT) cells in vitro and in vivo. Exposure of EAT cells to TNF for as little as 4 h totally abolished theExpand

Molecular cloning and identification of a point mutation in the topoisomerase II cDNA from an etoposide-resistant Chinese hamster ovary cell line.
Topoisomerase II (Top II) is the target enzyme for many antineoplastic drugs such as epipodophyllotoxins, anthracyclines, and acridines. Cell lines with alterations in Top II are resistant to drugsExpand
