  • induce
  • The released PDGF is thought to chemotactically attract fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells to the site of injury and to induce their focal proliferation as part of the process of wound repair (Ross and Glomset, N. Eng. (google.com.au)
  • yeast cells
  • Yeast cells lacking the DAP1 gene are sensitive to DNA damage, and heme-binding is essential for damage resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Due to its simplicity, specificity and sensitivity, RT-PCR is used in a wide range of applications from experiments as simple as quantification of yeast cells in wine to more complex uses as diagnostic tools for detecting infectious agents such as the avian flu virus. (wikipedia.org)
  • These spores are smooth, globose to ellipsoid, and germinate by hyphal tube or by yeast cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conidiophores are often present, producing conidiospores that are similar to yeast cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • molecules
  • Chemical inducers of dimerization (CIDs) are cell-permeable small molecules capable of dimerizing two protein targets. (biomedsearch.com)
  • First described by Schreiber and co-workers,( 1 ) chemical inducers of dimerization (CIDs) are cell-permeable, bidentate molecules capable of dimerizing two substrates. (biomedsearch.com)
  • roles
  • In plant cells, peroxisomes play a variety of roles including converting fatty acids to sugar and assisting chloroplasts in photorespiration. (cellsalive.com)
  • There are some subtypes of cyclins that are far more complex and execute different roles in the life of the eukaryotic cell, including the retinoblastoma protein known for its bond with the E2F protein. (reference.com)
  • Cholesterol serves multiple roles in the cell including modulating membrane fluidity serving as a precursor to steroid hormones. (wikipedia.org)
  • protein
  • When a cell is dividing, the nuclear chromatin (DNA and surrounding protein) condenses into chromosomes that are easily seen by microscopy. (cellsalive.com)
  • b) isolating from the host cell a mitogenic protein, which is a PDGF BB Romodimer, expressed from said DNA construct. (google.com.au)
  • Human platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) has been shown to be the major mitogenic protein in serum for mesenchymal derived cells. (google.com.au)
  • Progesterone inhibits apoptosis in immortalized granulosa cells, and this activity requires PGRMC1 and its binding partner, PAIR-BP1 (plasminogen activator inhibitor RNA-binding protein-1). (wikipedia.org)
  • synthesis
  • This is well documented by numerous studies of platelet extracts or purified PDGF induction of either cell multiplication or DNA synthesis (a prerequisite for cell division) in cultured smooth muscle cells, fibroblasts and glial cells (Ross et al. (google.com.au)
  • recognize
  • Biologists recognize 2 basic cell types: prokaryotic and eukaryotic. (austincc.edu)
  • Therefore, infected cells recognize viral replication as a DNA damage stress and elicit DNA damage signal transduction, which ultimately induces apoptosis as part of host immune surveillance. (bio-medicine.org)
  • viral
  • For transferring genes into the cells, viral vectors are used, for example, which make use of the efficient entry mechanisms of their original viruses. (google.es)
  • gene
  • There is a need for an efficient system of introducing nucleic acid into living cells particularly in gene therapy. (google.es)
  • By this is meant viruses in which the gene to be expressed in the cell has been integrated in the genome by recombinant methods. (google.es)
  • genes
  • The DNA is similar in every cell of the body, but depending on the specific cell type, some genes may be turned on or off - that's why a liver cell is different from a muscle cell, and a muscle cell is different from a fat cell. (cellsalive.com)
  • chitin
  • The addition of lactophenol blue with this test turns the chitin in the cell wall blue but leaves the budding conidia and globular conidiophores with their characteristic brown colouring. (wikipedia.org)
  • binds
  • The modified virus or cell binds the receptor in vive and is internalized by the target cell. (google.es)
  • hyphal
  • It has been shown that cytoplasmic effectors can move through a few layers of plant cells, probably a way to prepare them for hyphal invasion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tremella species produce hyphae that are typically (but not always) clamped and have haustorial cells from which hyphal filaments seek out and penetrate the hyphae of the host. (wikipedia.org)
  • control
