The growth of Acinetobacter sp. strain HO1-N on hexadecanol results in the formation of intracytoplasmic membranes and intracellular rectangular inclusions containing one of the end products of hexadecanol metabolism, hexadecyl palmitate. The intracellular inclusions were purified and characterized as "wax ester inclusions" consisting of 85.6% hexadecyl(More)
Monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1 is expressed by astrocytes in diverse inflammatory states and is a key regulator of monocyte recruitment to the central nervous system (CNS). In the current study, we addressed mechanisms by which transcription of the human MCP-1 gene (hMCP-1) was terminated, after induction by interferon (IFN)-gamma. Our results(More)
Epigenetic factors play critical roles in prostate cancer (PCa) development. However, how they contribute to neuroendocrine differentiation (NED) and castration-resistant PCa (CRPC) is not fully understood. Using bioinformatics and biochemical approaches to analyze cell-based models of NED and CRPC, we found a cluster of epigenetic factors whose expression(More)
