Histopathological analysis of zebrafish after introduction of non-biodegradable polyelectrolyte microcapsules into the circulatory system
Vladimir Uversky –– This study is of great interest and importance for specialists in aquatic science
Porphyromonas gingivalis lipopolysaccharide promotes T-hel per17 cell differentiation by upregulating Delta-like ligand 4 expression on CD14+ monocytes
Joseph Gillespie –– Zhang et al. describe the role of monocytes and T-cell in the progression of periodontal disease, one of the most important oral disease.
Long non-coding RNA taurine upregulated gene 1 is downregulated in osteoporosis and influences the osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells
Eva Mezey –– Understanding the many mechanisms of osteoporosis will eventually lead for novel therapeutic approaches. This paper suggests the role of a long non-coding RNA in the pathophysiology.
Development of a single-chain fragment variable fused-mutant HALT-1 recombinant immunotoxin against G12V mutated KRAS colorectal cancer cells
Maria Cristina Albertini –– Important results have been found with advances in colorectal cancerogenesis.
Effect of leaf position and days post-infiltration on transient expression of colorectal cancer vaccine candidate proteins GA733-Fc and GA733-FcK in Nicotiana benthamiana plant
Abhiram Maddi –– Production of vaccines in plants may be an important approach in the future as we deal with the current pandemic.
The effect of carbon monoxide on meiotic maturation of porcine oocytes
Judith Yanowitz –– The impact of carbon monoxide on oocyte maturation has the potential to change in vitro culturing methodology to increase oocyte quality.
Preparation and characterization of gelatin-polysaccharide composite hydrogels for tissue engineering
Omar Gonzalez-Ortega –– The potential final application is attractive. Despite this, there is still work to be done to "optimize" the composite gel.
Exploring the occurrence of thioflavin-T-positive insulin amyloid aggregation intermediates
Eugene Permyakov –– Any new information on insulin properties is of importance for medicine.
Effective ribosomal RNA depletion for single-cell total RNA-seq by scDASH
Joseph Gillespie –– Loi et al. describe a novel approach for performing rRNA depletion in single cell sequencing experiments that facilitates detection of non-polyadenylated and partially degraded RNAs.
Research on the measurement of intracranial hemorrhage in rabbits by a parallel-plate capacitor
Jafri Abdullah –– More portable star trek like scanning equipment are important for screening blood clots in the brains are needed
