The editorial reflects on the proceedings of European conference on optical, biochemical and chemical sensors entitled "Europt(r)ode VIII" held in Tubingen, from 2-5 April, 2006. Papers covering various topics were presented at the conference, including nuclear receptor signalling, piezo effects in automobile fuel injectors, and others. The article states that a few papers were presented in the current issue and the remaining papers would be published in the subsequent issues of the journal.

    Although all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) can restore the differentiation capacity of leukemic promyelocytes, early leukemic myeloblasts are conversely not responsive to ATRA induced granulocytic differentiation. To assess whether this resistance to ATRA is related to an impaired function of the...

    The retinoid-X receptor (RXR) regulates multiple hormonal pathways through heterodimerization with nuclear receptors such as the all-trans retinoic acid receptor (RAR). The orphan nuclear receptor NGFI-B (also called Nur77) can heterodimerize with RXR. Here we show that nerve growth factor (NGF)...
