Aging is a multifactorial process where deterioration of body functions is driven by stochastic damage while counteracted by distinct genetically encoded repair systems. To better understand the genetic component of aging, many studies have addressed the gene and protein expression profiles of various aging model systems engaging different organisms from(More)
Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) has been shown to improve cardiac function after myocardial infarction (MI) by bone marrow cell mobilization and by protecting cardiomyocytes from apoptotic cell death. However, its role in collateral artery growth (arteriogenesis) has not been elucidated. Here, we investigated the effect of G-CSF on arteriolar(More)

To identify new genetic regulators of cellular aging and senescence, we performed genome-wide comparative RNA profiling with selected human cellular model systems, reflecting replicative senescence, stress-induced premature senescence, and distinct other forms of cellular aging. Gene expression profiles were measured, analyzed, and entered into a newly(More)
SUMMARY MAGI is a web service for fast MicroRNA-Seq data analysis in a graphics processing unit (GPU) infrastructure. Using just a browser, users have access to results as web reports in just a few hours->600% end-to-end performance improvement over state of the art. MAGI's salient features are (i) transfer of large input files in native FASTA with(More)
Erythropoietin (EPO) was shown to have protective effects after myocardial infarction (MI) by neovascularization and antiapoptotic mechanisms. Beside direct receptor-dependent mechanisms, mobilization and homing of bone marrow-derived cells (BMCs) may play a pivotal role in this regard. In this study, we intended to track different subpopulations of BMCs(More)
Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) has been shown to promote mobilization of bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMCs) into the bloodstream associated with improved survival and cardiac function after myocardial infarction. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate whether G-CSF is able to attenuate cardiac remodelling in a mouse(More)

Accurate assessment of left ventricular function in rodent models is essential for the evaluation of new therapeutic approaches for cardiac diseases. In our study, we provide new insights regarding the role of a 1.5 Tesla (T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device and different anesthetic regimens on data validity. As dedicated small animal MRI and(More)
Immunologic memory is a critical feature of the adaptive immune system to fight recurrent infections. However, the mechanisms that shape the composition and function of the human memory T-cell pool remain incompletely understood. We here demonstrate that post-thymic human T-cell differentiation was associated with the downregulation, but not loss, of the(More)
