Endocytic Markers Associated with the Internalization and Processing of Aspergillus fumigatus Conidia by BEAS-2B Cells
(NLM (Medline), 2019-02-06)
Aspergillus fumigatus is a ubiquitous mold that produces small airborne conidia capable of traversing deep into the respiratory system. Recognition, processing, and clearance of A. fumigatus conidia by bronchial airway ...
An Analysis of Enzyme Kinetics Data for Mitochondrial DNA Strand Termination by Nucleoside Reverse Transcription Inhibitors
(Public Library of Science, 2009-01-09)
Nucleoside analogs used in antiretroviral treatment have been associated with mitochondrial toxicity. The polymerase-gamma hypothesis states that this toxicity stems from the analogs' inhibition of the mitochondrial DNA ...
Energetic mitochondrial failing in vitiligo and possible rescue by cardiolipin
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-10-20)
e-Connections, vol. 4, no. 3; Fall 2009

3,4-Dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde synthase and cuticle formation in insects
Cuticle is the most important structure that protects mosquitoes and other insect species from adverse environmental conditions and infections of microorganism. The physiology and biochemistry of insect cuticle formation ...
Origin, Evolution, and Genotyping of Emergent Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus Strains in the United States
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-09)
Coronaviruses are known to infect humans and other animals and cause respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases. Here we report the emergence of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) in the United States and determination ...
Identification of Aspergillus fumigatus UDP-Galactopyranose Mutase Inhibitors
Aspergillus fumigatus is an opportunistic human pathogen responsible for deadly, invasive infections in immunocompromised patients. The A. fumigatus cell wall is a complex network of polysaccharides among them galactofuran, ...
Reproducibility, bioinformatic analysis and power of the SAGE method to evaluate changes in transcriptome
The serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) method is used to study global gene expression in cells or tissues in various experimental conditions. However, its reproducibility has not yet been definitively assessed. In ...
VMD: a community annotation database for oomycetes and microbial genomes
The VBI Microbial Database (VMD) is a database system designed to host a range of microbial genome sequences. At present, the database contains genome sequence and annotation data of two plant pathogens Phytophthora sojae ...
