The intracellular limiting steps in non-viral gene delivery are still unclear. The purpose of this study was to quantize intracellular DNA release and elimination kinetics after transfection with various non-viral carriers (calcium phosphate precipitates, branched poly(ethyleneimine), poly-L-lysine, DOTAP, DOTAP/DOPE) and to correlate these factors with(More)
Bacterial adhesion to the cell surface is a crucial step before infection can take place. Inhibition of bacterial binding offers a novel preventive approach against infections. Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon Ait.) juice has been found to have antiadhesive activity against different bacteria. Streptococcus pneumoniae is an important pathogen and the most(More)
Zoledronate (ZOL) inhibits farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase leading to intracellular accumulation of isopentenyl pyrophosphate/triphosphoric acid 1-adenosin-5'-yl ester 3-(3-methylbut-3-enyl) ester (IPP/ApppI). Cytotoxic Vγ9Vδ2 T cells have been shown to recognize IPP/ApppI in breast cancer cells. Further, human breast cancer cells have been shown to differ(More)
