In the present study, the role of heme oxygenase (HO)-1 in sodium arsenite (arsenite)-induced neurotoxicity was investigated using primary cultured cortical neurons. Incubation with arsenite was found to cause cell death of primary cultured cortical neurons in concentration- and time-dependent manners. Furthermore, arsenite induced caspase 3 activation and(More)
The recent increase in bacterial resistance to antibiotics has promoted the exploration of novel antibacterial materials. As a result, many researchers are undertaking work to identify new lantibiotics because of their potent antimicrobial activities. The objective of this study was to provide details of a lantibiotic-like gene cluster in Paenibacillus(More)
In the present study, the neuroprotective effect of melatonin on arsenite-induced neurotoxicity was investigated in rat primary cultured cortical neurons. Incubation of melatonin prevented arsenite-induced neuronal cell loss in a concentration-dependent manner. Furthermore, melatonin significantly attenuated arsenite-induced elevation in(More)
Correction: gene cluster analysis for the biosynthesis of elgicins, novel lantibiotics produced by Paenibacillus elgii B69 It has come to our attention that we have used Asp, rather than the correct annotation of Asn, to indicate Asparagine throughout the text [1]. In the abstract this is corrected to: The N-terminal sequence of elgicin B was(More)
