A role for natural regulatory T cells in the pathogenesis of experimental cerebral malaria.
Cerebral malaria (CM) is a serious complication of Plasmodium falciparum infection that is responsible for a significant number of deaths in children and nonimmune adults. A failure to control bloodExpand

Hepatitis C virus core protein stimulates hepatocyte growth: Correlation with upregulation of wnt‐1 expression
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) core protein has been implicated in the development of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Here we report that expression of HCV core protein by transient transfectionExpand

Modulation of Hepatitis B Virus Secretion by Naturally Occurring Mutations in the S Gene
ABSTRACT Alteration in hepatitis B virus (HBV) secretion efficiency may have pathological consequences. Naturally occurring mutations that regulate virion secretion have not been defined. We recentlyExpand

Point Mutations Upstream of Hepatitis B Virus Core Gene Affect DNA Replication at the Step of Core Protein Expression
ABSTRACT The pregenomic RNA directs replication of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) genome by serving both as the messenger for core protein and polymerase and as the genome precursor following itsExpand

Selection of reference genes for normalization of qRT-PCR analysis of differentially expressed genes in soybean exposed to cadmium
Accurate normalization of gene expression with qRT-PCR depends on the use of appropriate reference genes (RGs) for the species under a given set of experimental conditions. Multiple RGs for geneExpand

Activation of Invariant NKT Cells Exacerbates Experimental Visceral Leishmaniasis
We report that natural killer T (NKT) cells play only a minor physiological role in protection from Leishmania donovani infection in C57BL/6 mice. Furthermore, attempts at therapeutic activation ofExpand

Rapid changes of microsatellite flanking sequence in the allopolyploidization of new synthesized hexaploid wheat
It was suggested that the rapid changes of DNA sequence and gene expression occurred at the early stages of allopolyploid formation. In this study, we revealed the microsatellite (SSR) differencesExpand
