Syncytiotrophoblast Vesicles Show Altered micro-RNA and Haemoglobin Content after Ex-vivo Perfusion of Placentas with Haemoglobin to Mimic Preeclampsia (PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2014-02-27)BACKGROUND: Cell-free foetal haemoglobin (HbF) has been shown to play a role in the pathology of preeclampsia (PE). In the present study, we aimed to further characterize the harmful effects of extracellular free haemoglobin ...
The C-terminal propeptide of a plant defensin confers cytoprotective and subcellular targeting functions (BMC, 2014-02-05)BACKGROUND: Plant defensins are small (45-54 amino acids), basic, cysteine-rich proteins that have a major role in innate immunity in plants. Many defensins are potent antifungal molecules and are being evaluated for their ...
Evolutionary Changes in Gene Expression, Coding Sequence and Copy-Number at the Cyp6g1 Locus Contribute to Resistance to Multiple Insecticides in Drosophila (PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2014-01-08)Widespread use of insecticides has led to insecticide resistance in many populations of insects. In some populations, resistance has evolved to multiple pesticides. In Drosophila melanogaster, resistance to multiple classes ...
