Epigentic silencing of the glucocorticoid receptor in small cell lung cancer cells.
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an aggressive neuroendocrine tumour which secretes ACTH and other related peptides. Contrary to normal production by the pituitary, ACTH production is not inhibited by glucocorticoids (Gcs) ...

Assessing the role of the transcription factor FOXC1 in the expression and regulation of the Adherens junction protein N-Cadherin during corneal endothelium development.
The proper organization and differentiation of the anterior segment is pivotal for normal eye development. Neural crest-derived POM cells are key contributors to correct anterior segment formation, differentiating to ...
Aerobic utilization of selected pharmaceutical and personal care product by estuarine heterotrophic bacteria.
Pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) constitute a broad class of organic compounds, some of which belong to the list of the OECD high production volume (HPV) chemicals. These compounds have emerged as environmental ...
The role of lens-derived signals in the development of the corneal endothelium.
Corneal endothelial development is an intricate process driven by finely tuned gene expression. Its formation is necessary for the continued normal development of the anterior segment of the eye. The presence of an ...
Assessment of the diversity of bacteria and methanogenic Archaea in Zebra faeces.
The need to develop a renewable, environmentally friendly source of energy has become a primary focus in modern science, with bio gas showing considerable potential. Interest in the methanogenic Archaea has therefore grown ...
Soil microbial responses to simulated climate change drivers.
Climate change is one of the biggest environmental challenges being experienced in the 21st century and is expected to continue to cause drastic alterations to the hydrological, biological and ecological ecosystems. Soil, ...
Treated wastewater effluent as a potential source of emerging bacterial pathogens in surface water.
Rivers and estuaries are the major sources of the earth’s fresh water, and are also the major recipient of treated wastewater effluent discharge, thus leading to their deterioration. This study was aimed at evaluating the ...
