Proteomic analysis of honey bee brain upon ontogenetic and behavioral development.
The honey bee (Apis mellifera) is a social insect that shows complex and integrated behaviors. Its ability to read and respond to several sets of extrinsic and intrinsic signals is fundamental forExpand
Purification and characterization of a new xylanase from Acrophialophora nainiana.
A new xylanase activity (XynII) was isolated from liquid state cultures of Acrophialophora nainiana containing birchwood xylan as carbon source. XynII was purified to apparent homogeneity by gelExpand
Plant defense and antimicrobial peptides.
Plants are constantly exposed to a large array of pathogenic organisms and the survival in these conditions demands quick defense responses which include the synthesis of defense peptides andExpand
Proteome analysis of brown spider venom: Identification of loxnecrogin isoforms in Loxosceles gaucho venom
Brown spiders of the Loxosceles genus are distributed worldwide. In Brazil, eight species are found in Southern states, where the envenomation by Loxosceles venom (loxoscelism) is a health problem.Expand
The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio: a narrative review
Cellular-mediated inflammatory response, lymphocytes, neutrophils, and monocytes are increasingly being recognised as having an important role in tumorigenesis and carcinogenesis. In this context,Expand
Proteomic analysis of the human pathogen Trypanosoma cruzi
Trypanosoma cruzi, the protozoan that causes Chagas disease, possesses a complex life cycle involving different developmental stages. Experimental conditions for two‐dimensional electrophoresisExpand
Hylin a1, the first cytolytic peptide isolated from the arboreal South American frog Hypsiboas albopunctatus (“spotted treefrog”)
RP-HPLC fractionation of the electrically stimulated skin secretion of the arboreal South American frog Hypsiboas albopunctatus ("spotted treefrog") led to the isolation of a cytolytic C-terminallyExpand
Proteomic landscape of seminal plasma associated with dairy bull fertility
Male fertility is the ability of sperm to fertilize the egg and sustain embryo development. Several factors determine the fertilizing capacity of mammalian sperm, including those intrinsic to spermExpand
Homology between the seed cytolysin enterolobin and bacterial aerolysins
Enterolobin, a 55-kDa cytolytic, inflammatory, and insecticidal protein isolated from seeds of the Brazilian treeEnterolobium contortisiliquum (Leguminosae-Mimosoideae) has been further purified andExpand
