Publication date: April 2020Source: Parasitology International, Volume 75Author(s): Hideyuki Iriko, Tomoko Ishino, Mayumi Tachibana, Ayaka Omoda, Motomi Torii, Takafumi TsuboiAbstractPlasmodium falciparum proteins involved in vascular endothelial cell adherence are transported to the surface of infected erythrocytes. These proteins are exported through parasite-derived membrane structures within the erythrocyte cytoplasm called Maurer's clefts. Skeleton binding protein 1 (SBP1) is localized in the Maurer's clefts and plays an important role in transporting molecules to the surface of infected erythrocytes. Details of the t...

Conclusions: A group process with clearly progressing steps revealed that lonely older people are capable of empowerment and self-direction - despite their frailty and cognitive impairment. Facilitators should be familiar with group processes to enable them to progress effectively. PMID: 31714861 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In the current study, we generated different constructs containing envelope (E) protein, pre-membrane-envelope (prM-E) protein, and C-terminally truncated E protein of the DTMUV. The constructed proteins could induce specific antibody responses in young ducks. When ducklings were immunized with the constructed proteins, they were 100% protected against DTMUV inf...

In the present study, a monoclonal antibody (MoAb) against recombinant F. gigantica glutathione peroxidase (rFgGPx) was produced by hybridoma technique using spleen cells ...

CONCLUSIONS: The device, which combined 20 g of CELOX particles and 20 pieces of CELOX (8 g) sponge tablets with 50-mmHg intra-abdominal compression for 10 minutes, prolonged the ST by an average of 30 minutes with less BL. It was not markedly different from the full four quadrants gauze packing of liver in hemostatic effect, with no CELOX clot formation in other organs.

These magnetic nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray fluorescence, and vibrating-sample magnetometry. For the green chemistry methodology, we used the phytochemical components present in an aqueous extract of Mangifera Indica leaves. In spite of the fact that polyo...
