Rapid effects of 17β-estradiol and progesterone on sheep visceral and parietal pleurae via a nitric oxide pathway
We investigated the effects of 17β-estradiol and progesterone on transepithelial electrical resistance (R TE) in sheep visceral and parietal pleurae. Specimens of intact pleurae from adult female sheep were used. The samples ...
Handedness, asthma and allergic disorders: Is there an association?
Left-handedness has often been associated with asthma and allergic disorders. In view of previous findings, we investigated the distribution of laterality scores, using the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory, among 172 children. ...
Exp5 exports eEF1A via tRNA from nuclei and synergizes with other transport pathways to confine translation to the cytoplasm
Importin β-type transport receptors mediate the vast majority of transport pathways between cell nucleus and cytoplasm. We identify here the translation elongation factor 1A (eEF1A) as the predominant nuclear export substrate ...
Leptin in pregnancy
Leptin is a 16-kDa polypeptide, encoded in humans by the LEP gene. This protein is probably involved in the regulation of ovarian function, oocyte maturation and embryo development, and in the implantation process. During ...
The Developmental Program of Murine Erythroleukemia Cells
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) or early progenitors respond to external stimuli in bone marrow and differentiate into cell-restricted lineages of blood cells of limited life span. In leukemias, however, early hematopoietic ...
