Association of expression of XIAP-associated factor 1 (XAF1) with clinicopathologic factors, overall survival, microvessel density and cisplatin-resistance in ovarian cancer
XIAP-associated factor 1 (XAF1) was identified as a novel X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) binding partner that can reverse the anti-apoptotic effect of XIAP. XAF1 levels are greatly decreasedExpand

Neuroendocrine peptides (NPY, GRP, VIP, somatostatin) from the brain and stomach of the alligator
Despite the important position of the reptiles in phylogeny, relatively few regulatory peptides from reptilian species have been characterized structurally. Neuropeptide Y was isolated from the brainExpand

Purification and characterization of galanin from the phylogenetically ancient fish, the bowfin (Amia calva) and dogfish (Scyliorhinus canicula)
Galanin was purified to near homogeneity from an extract of the stomachs of the holostean fish, the bowfin and the elasmobranch fish, the European common dogfish. Bowfin galanin contains anExpand
