Plant-based and immunostimulant-enhanced diets modulate oxidative stress, immune and haematological indices in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
with No Comments

Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of three commercial diets, standard, immunostimulant-supplemented (β-glucan, vitamins C and E) and plant-based, on the degree of oxidative stress in tissues of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Selected immune and … Read More

WNT5B in Physiology and Disease
with No Comments

Abstract: WNT5B, a member of the WNT family of proteins that is closely related to WNT5A, is required for cell migration, cell proliferation, or cell differentiation in many cell types. WNT5B signals through the non-canonical β-catenin-independent signaling pathway and often … Read More

Determination of initial expansion energy with shadowgraphy in laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy
with No Comments

Abstract: Laser-induced plasma (LIP) is dependent on many experimental conditions, as well as on the material and type of the ablated sample. Typically, the spectral data from a LIP are used as an analytical tool. However, the problem is that … Read More

Role of Cell Death in Cellular Processes During Odontogenesis
with No Comments

Abstract: The development of a tooth germ in a precise size, shape, and position in the jaw, involves meticulous regulation of cell proliferation and cell death. Apoptosis, as the most common type of programmed cell death during embryonic development, plays … Read More

Roles of individual human Dishevelled paralogs in the Wnt signalling pathways
with No Comments

Abstract: Dishevelled (DVL) proteins are key mediators of most Wnt pathways. In all vertebrates, three DVL paralogs are present (DVL1, DVL2 and DVL3) but it is poorly defined to what extent they are functionally redundant. Here, we generated T-REx HEK … Read More

An RNA aptamer restores defective bone growth in FGFR3-related skeletal dysplasia in mice
with No Comments

Abstract: Achondroplasia is the most prevalent genetic form of dwarfism in humans and is caused by activating mutations in FGFR3 tyrosine kinase. The clinical need for a safe and effective inhibitor of FGFR3 is unmet, leaving achondroplasia currently incurable. Here, … Read More
