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 ...
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 ...
Argon and the pathophysiology of pulmonary oxygen toxicity
Molecular interaction can be determined from biological experiments. In the case of dynamics at the atmosphere-lung interface the physicochemical and atomic attributes of inhalant gases has significant biological and ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...

On the pulmonary toxicity of oxygen. 4. The thyroid arena
Normally developed thyroid function is critical to the transition from fetal to neonatal life with the onset of independent thermoregulation, the most conspicuous of the many ways in which thyroid secretions act throughout ...
Thyroid and adrenal factors in hyaline membrane disease
Pulmonary fibrosis implies antecedent lung injury which may or may not include inflammatory responses of the ordinary sort. The onset of breathing at mammalian birth is a different kind of lung injury, one occasioned by ...
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 ...
