Intercellular adhesion molecule 5 (ICAM-5, telencephalin) is a cell adhesion molecule expressed on neurons in the most rostral segment of the mammalian brain, the telencephalon. Antibody studies in rodents and rabbits have demonstrated expression of this molecule on the cell body and dendrites of these neurons. We have examined the expression pattern in(More)
We have analyzed in detail the precise requirements for the induction of human IgE synthesis using several experimental approaches with purified B cells and well-characterized alloantigen-specific CD4+ T cell clones expressing different profiles of lymphokine secretion. Using these clones under cognate conditions in which the B cells expressed alloantigens(More)
Intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM)-5 (telencephalin) is unique among the ICAMs, because it is only expressed in somatodendritic membranes of telencephalic neurons. To investigate the fate of ICAM-5 during focal brain injury, we induced hypoxia-ischemia (HI) damage in adult mice by right common carotid artery ligation followed by hypoxia. ICAM-5 was(More)
Although there is no doubt about the influence of the genetic background in the onset of the allergic diseases, Epigenome-Wide Association Studies are needed to elucidate the possible relationship between allergic diseases and epigenomic dysregulation. In this study we aimed to analyze the epigenetic patterns, in terms of DNA methylation, of three(More)
An experiment was conducted to study an estrous synchronization regimen that involved the use of prostaglandin F(2alpha) (PGF(2alpha)) alone or in combination with estradiol benzoate (EB) and appointment breeding. Fifty-three registered Angus yearling heifers and 167 registered Angus cows (3 to 9 yr of age) were given two injections of PGF(2alpha) 11 d(More)
The effects of fenprostalene, cloprostenol sodium and prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2alpha) on estrus, conception rate, pregnancy rate, and the interval from Day 1 of the breeding season to calving were studied on 135 purebred Angus cows and heifers. The cows and heifers were randomly allotted within age to the three estrus synchronization treatments and a(More)
Thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) is a glycoprotein that plays a role in extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling. Previously, we have shown that multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) regulate ECM components TGFβ and its target Col3A1 in alveolar epithelial cells. In this study, we investigated the effect of MWCNT on TSP-1 and microRNA-1 (miR-1) in the regulation of(More)
