The surface properties of nanocrystalline diamond and nanoparticulate diamond powder and their suitability as cell growth support surfaces.
Nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) films and nanoparticulate diamond powder (DP) are the two main representatives of diamond at the nanoscale. This study was designed to investigate the suitability ofExpand

99mTc-labeling and in vitro and in vivo evaluation of HYNIC- and (Nalpha-His)acetic acid-modified [D-Glu1]-minigastrin.
Gastrin/CCK-2 receptors are overexpressed in a number of tumors such as medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Recently [D-Glu1]-minigastrin (MG) has been radiolabeled withExpand

Quantitative Morphology of Renal Cortical Structures during Compensatory Hypertrophy
The compensatory hypertrophy in different renal cortical structures was studied in rats 10 and 21 days after unilateral nephrectomy (UNX). Quantitative morphological/stereological analysis revealedExpand

Optimized Conformal Paraaortic Lymph Node Irradiation is not Associated with Enhanced Renal Toxicity
Background and Purpose:For patients with gynecologic carcinomas, irradiation of paraaortic lymph nodes (PLNs) is a routine treatment concept. Planning target volumes (PTVs) individually optimized byExpand

Impact of Culture Conditions, Culture Media Volumes, and Glucose Content on Metabolic Properties of Renal Epithelial Cell Cultures
When renal proximal tubular cells are brought into tissue culture, they revert from oxidative metabolism and gluconeogenesis to high rates of glycolysis. Among the factors possibly responsible forExpand

The involvement of protein kinase C isoenzymes alpha, epsilon and zeta in the sensitivity to antitumor treatment and apoptosis induction.
In order to obtain additional information on the involvement of protein kinase C (PKC) isoenzymes in the resistance of cells to anticancer drugs and in the induction of apoptosis, we employedExpand

LLC-PK1 Cells Maintained in a New Perfusion Cell Culture System Exhibit an Improved Oxidative Metabolism
Cultured renal proximal tubule cells dedifferentiate from an oxidative metabolism to high rates of glycolysis over time. There are many reasons why cells in culture dedifferentiate, not least being aExpand

Direct and Protein‐Mediated Cell Attachment on Differently Terminated Nanocrystalline Diamond
The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of wettability on direct and protein-mediated cell-surface interactions. Nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) is chosen as a cell growth substrate,Expand

3D versus 2D cell culture implications for electron microscopy.
Cell culture systems are indispensable tools for basic research and a wide range of clinical in vitro studies. However, conventional 2D cell cultures poorly mimic the conditions in the livingExpand

Effects of Paclitaxel and Docetaxel on EGFR-Expressing Human Carcinoma Cells Under Normoxic Versus Hypoxic Conditions In Vitro
Abstract Human malignant tumors, such as non-small lung, breast, ovarian, head and neck, prostate, stomach and colorectal cancers express a number of growth factor receptors (e.g. EGFR or EGFR familyExpand
