A study of the African horse sickness virus using High Resolution Melt, multivariate and phylogenetic analyses for a potential serotyping assay.
African horse sickness (AHS) is a viral disease that afflicts all equine species and has a 90% mortality rate in unvaccinated horses. The disease has a devastating effect on the national herd of South Africa each year ...
Gene transfer by receptor-mediated endocytosis : stable expression of NEO following insulin-directed entry into HepG2 cells.
Evidence is presented for DNA delivery to cultured HepG2 hepatoma cells via the endocytotic pathway, under the direction of insulin, in a soluble system of transfection leading to stable gene expression. Serum albumin ...
Investigation of anti-diabetic properties of Psidium guajava leaf in streptozocin induced diabetic rats.
Diabetes mellitus results in chronic hyperglycaemia, leading to defects in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Diabetes mellitus is also linked with elevated plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which may ...
Extracellular matrix factors influence myoblast activation, differentiation and fusion.
Satellite cells are muscle stem cells that reside in a niche between the basal lamina and sarcolemma of mature muscle fibers. Upon muscle injury, these cells are activated to myoblasts that subsequently proliferate, ...
