AIM To examine whether low-power laser irradiation (LPLI) promotes cellular proliferation of human dental pulp-derived fibroblast-like cells (dental pulp cells). METHODOLOGY Dental pulp cells were obtained by primary culture of human dental pulp tissues from extracted third molar teeth. The phosphorylation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)(More)
SNAP-25 is located on the plasma membrane and essential for exocytosis of neurotransmitters. It was suggested that SNAP-25 and syntaxin 1 via the interaction with VAMP-2 located on synaptic vesicles mediate the docking of the vesicles with the plasma membrane. In the present study, by means of biochemical and morphological analyses, we showed that SNAP-25(More)
An EcoRI chromosomal DNA fragment of Ruminococcus albus F-40 that conferred endoglucanase activity on Escherichia coli was cloned. An open reading frame (ORF1) and another incomplete reading frame (ORF2) were found in the EcoRI fragment. The ORF2 was completed using inverse PCR genome walking technique. ORF1 and ORF2, which confront each other, encoded(More)
