G-CSF is a polypeptide growth factor used in treatment following chemotherapy. G-CSF regulates granulopoiesis and acts on its target cells by inducing homodimerization of the G-CSFR, thereby activating intracellular signaling cascades. The G-CSFR encompasses four tyrosine motifs on its cytoplasmic tail that have been shown to recruit a number of regulatory(More)
OBJECTIVES The knowledge of chamber-specific gene expression in human atrial and ventricular myocardium is essential for the understanding of myocardial function and the basis for the identification of putative therapeutic targets in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia and heart failure. In this study the gene expression pattern of human left atrial and(More)
Erythropoietin (Epo) is a hematopoietic cytokine that is crucial for the differentiation and proliferation of erythroid progenitor cells. Epo acts on its target cells by inducing homodimerization of the erythropoietin receptor (EpoR), thereby triggering intracellular signaling cascades. The EpoR encompasses eight tyrosine motifs on its cytoplasmic tail that(More)
Ever-increasing research and development costs are putting constant pressure on the pharmaceutical industry to improve their efficiency. Efforts to increase the output of the research pipeline have yielded limited success. Traditionally, maximization of the value of a drug is attempted through life-cycle management, which is initiated late in development,(More)
