proteins that protect insects from invading organisms (see enclosed). Not only has Mike continually been supported by major grants but, while working in Mike's laboratory two postdoctoral researchers have obtained five year NIH grants. In a rare example of plant studies leading the way for studies on animals, Sam Wang was the first to clone (isolated the coding DNA) and recombinantly produce an enzyme, phospholipase D, that facilitates important changes in the membranes of plants. He has… Expand

Enzymatic and nonenzymatic antioxidants servo as an impcxtant biological defense against environmental pollutants. Various enzymatic and nonenzymatic antioxidants as a stress biomarker in liver andExpand
Biochemical studies on the effect of flaxseed and corn oils on cell membrane phospholipids in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma and solid tumor in mice
Tumor growth is a process associated with an enhanced rate of membrane phospholipids de novo turnover and assembly. Erythrocytes are the initial objectives for circulating drugs. In addition,Expand
Homeobox gene expression in acute myeloid leukemia is linked to typical underlying molecular aberrations
TLDR
It is demonstrated that specific molecular genetic aberrations, rather than differentiation per se, underlie the observed differences in HOX gene expression in AML. Expand
New insights into lineage restriction of mammary gland epithelium using parity-identified mammary epithelial cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that not only basal cells display multi-lineage potential in transplantation assays but also a significant population of unlabeled alveolar progenitors that resemble PI-MECs raises the question of whether PI- MECs are a unique population or the result of stochastic labeling. Expand
mRNA binding protein staufen 1-dependent regulation of pyramidal cell spine morphology via NMDA receptor-mediated synaptic plasticity
TLDR
The results indicate that Stau1 involvement in spine morphogenesis is dependent on ongoing NMDA receptor-mediated plasticity, but its effects on late-LTP are independent of these changes. Expand
Crystalline Structure of Microbial Cellulose Compared with Native and Regenerated Cellulose
Microbial cellulose is a chemically pure form of plant cellulose with an ultrafine reticulated structure. In this study, microbial cellulose was biosynthesized in a static condition by acetobacterExpand
p53: Guardian of the genome is also a suppressor of cell invasion?
TLDR
It is proposed that p53 suppresses Src-induced podosome and rosette formation and cellular invasiveness through the upregulation of caldesmon through the downregulation of p53. Expand
CODEN: IJPNL6 EVALUATION OF APHRODISIAC ACTIVITY OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF Cicer arietinum SEEDS IN SEXUALLY SLUGGISH MALE ALBINO RATS
The present study was designed to evaluate the potential aphrodisiac effect of seeds of methanolic extract of Cicer airetinum (MECA) in sexually sluggish male albino rats. Sexual behavioralExpand
A STUDY OF MALONDIALDEHYDE AND LIPID PROFILE IN PREGNANCY INDUCED HYPERTENSION
TLDR
The present study shows that an abnormal lipid metabolism and high lipid peroxide concentrations may contribute to promotion of Hypertension and vascular dysfunction seen in PIH. Expand

An evaluation of detergents for NMR structural studies of membrane proteins
TLDR
Analysis of 15N transverse, longitudinal and 15N{1H} nuclear Overhauser effect relaxation measurements yielded overall rotational correlation times of 8 to 12 nsec, similar to a 15–20 kDalton protein tumbling isotropically in solution, and consistent with the high quality NMR data observed. Expand
An approach to membrane protein structure without crystals
TLDR
The lactose permease of Escherichia coli catalyzes coupled translocation of galactosides and H+ across the cell membrane and it is demonstrated that this information is sufficient to calculate a structural model at the level of helix packing or better. Expand
Mechanism of Constitutive Phosphoinositide 3-Kinase Activation by Oncogenic Mutants of the p85 Regulatory Subunit*
TLDR
A general model for oncogenic mutants of p85 and p110 is proposed in which disruption of nSH2-p110 regulatory contacts leads to constitutive p110 activity. Expand

Structural changes linked to proton translocation by subunit c of the ATP synthase
TLDR
Conformational changes between the protonated and deprotonated forms of subunit c provide the structural basis for an explicit mechanism to explain coupling of proton translocation by FO to the rotation of subunits within the core of F1. Expand

Aptamer:toxin conjugates that specifically target prostate tumor cells.
TLDR
The results validate the notion that "escort aptamers" may be useful for the treatment of specific tumors expressing unique antigen targets and promote uptake into target cells but also decreases the toxicity of gelonin in non-target cells. Expand
