The effects of a cigarette carcinogen on glucocorticoid receptor methylation.
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an aggressive disease with an extremely poor prognosis. Lung cancer has been linked to cigarette smoking. SCLCs are glucocorticoid insensitive due to reduced levels of glucocorticoid receptor ...
Role of marine nitrifying bacteria in a closed system with Penaeus monodon.
In recent years there has been widespread interest in rearing aquatic organisms of nutritional and commercial value (Calaprice, 1976). The most hopeful prospect for marine prawn culture in the United Kingdom (Wickins, ...
Galactosylated liposomes with proton sponge capacity : a novel hepatocyte-specific gene transfer system.
Hepatocyte-directed liposomal gene delivery systems have received much attention in view of the present lack of suitable treatment alternatives for several liver-associated disorders. While targeting of liposomes to the ...
The impact of induced mutations on key nutritional and agronomic traits of sorghum.
Climate change, shrinking arable land, burgeoning population and malnutrition have made all aspects of crop improvement a critical issue. Of these, nutritional quality of crops is perhaps one of the most important aspects. ...
The develolpment of a rapid diagnostic test for the detection of haemophilus ducrey.
Aim: To develop an antigen detection test that would quickly exclude H. ducreyi infection in individuals with genital ulcers. Materials and Methods: H. ducreyi strains A54 and A68 were grown on Modified Bieling (MB) ...
A taxonomic revision of Tritogenia Kinberg, 1867 and Michalakus Plisko, 1996 (Oligochaeta, Tritogeniidae) occurring in KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, South Africa, based on morphological and DNA sequence data.
The conservation and monitoring of biodiversity depends on the knowledge of species identity and distribution. Southern Africa has a rich and characteristic megadrile fauna. Most of the fauna show high levels of endemism ...

Salmonella and Shigella spp. are major pathogens of humans and they cause diseases ranging from mild food poisoning to chronic diarrhoea, especially in children under the age of 5. They are commonly found in the gastrointestinal ...
Glucocorticoid receptor promoter expression and apoptosis induction in small cell lung cancer.
Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide and is the fourth leading cause of death in South Africa. Lung cancer is categorised into two types; non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). SCLC ...
Establishment of in vitro shoot multiplication and short-term embryo storage protocols for single genetic modification events in sugarcane.
Sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) is an important economic crop that accounts for more than 80% of world sugar production. Genetic improvement and selection to produce cultivars with traits of interest is difficult in ...
