Roles for Drosophila melanogaster myosin IB in maintenance of enterocyte brush-border structure and resistance to the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas entomophila
(American Society for Cell Biology, 2007-09-12)
Drosophila myosin IB (Myo1B) is one of two class I myosins in the Drosophila genome. In the larval and adult midgut enterocyte, Myo1B is present within the microvillus (MV) of the apical brush border (BB) where it forms ...
On the pulmonary toxicity of oxygen : III. The induction of oxygen dependency by oxygen use
Oxygen is central to the development of neonatal lung injury. The increase in oxygen exposure of the neonatal lung during the onset of extrauterine air breathing is an order of magnitude, from a range of 10-12 to 110-120 ...
Pulmonary oxygen toxicity is modulated by its paramagnetic property
Molecular interaction can be determined from biological experiments [MARM 2011, #415, p. 252]. Atomic attributes can be shown to be determinative in whole animal experiments under appropriatecircumstances [MARM 2012, #225, ...
Cellular magnesium acquisition : an anomaly in embryonic cation homeostasis
The intracellular dominance of magnesium ion makes clinical assessment difficult despite the critical role of Mg++ in many key functions of cells and enzymes. There is general consensus that serum Mg++ levels are not ...
A global, myosin light chain kinase-dependent increase in myosin II contractility accompanies the metaphase–anaphase transition in sea urchin eggs
(American Society for Cell Biology, 2006-07-12)
Myosin II is the force-generating motor for cytokinesis, and although it is accepted that myosin contractility is greatest at the cell equator, the temporal and spatial cues that direct equatorial contractility are not ...
Historical perspecitive on lead biokinetic models
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 1998-12)
A historical review of the development of biokinetic model of lead is presented. Biokinetics is interpreted narrowly to mean only physiologic processes happening within the body. Proceeding chronologically, for each epoch, ...
Cerebropulmonary dysgenetic syndrome
Ventilatory treatment of neonatal respiratory distress often results in bronchopulmonary dysplasia from congenital surfactant deficiency due to mutants of transporter protein ABCA3. Association of this condition with ...

On the pulmonary toxicity of oxygen. 5. Electronic structure and the paramagnetic property of oxygen
Oxygen uptake by the pulmonary circulation is a chemical reaction. The physicochemical attributesof oxygen are critical when studying pulmonary oxygen toxicity. Extent of lung injury depends onthe percentage of oxygen in ...
Placental hypervascularity does not cause perinatal brain injury
Dizygotic twins at 38 weeks with separate placentas: twin A, a 2479 gram female, was healthy after vaginal delivery. Five minutes later when the amnion of twin B was ruptured artificially, the cord prolapsed and could not ...
