LDLR expression is predominantly regulated by sterol regulatory element-binding protein 2 (SREBP2). Fenofibrate, a peroxisome(More)
The interactions of alkaline copper quat (ACQ) components with the earlywood and latewood tissues of southern pine were investigated. There was a highly significant redistribution of the copper amine component from the earlywood to the latewood during post-treatment fixation at 50°C, which was mainly attributed to diffusion of copper amine from the(More)
