    Background & Aims: There have been many studies on plasma butyrylcholinesterase in liver dysfunction. However, no data is available about acetylcholinesterase in human cirrhosis, although profound changes have been described in cirrhotic rat models. Methods: Human serum and liver...

F.; Piehl, Fredrik; Darreh-Shori, Taher // PLoS ONE;Jun2013, Vol. 8 Issue 6, p1 

    Acetylcholine (ACh), the classical neurotransmitter, also affects a variety of nonexcitable cells, such as endothelia, microglia, astrocytes and lymphocytes in both the nervous system and secondary lymphoid organs. Most of these cells are very distant from cholinergic synapses. The action of ACh...

    Purpose: The present study aims at determining whether enzymes of urea synthesis are expressed in the human lacrimal gland and in tissues of ocular surface (conjunctiva, cornea), to give evidence for the hypothesis that urea can be locally formed from ocular tissues and is important for the...

    Development of the retinal vascular network is strictly confined within the neuronal retina, allowing the intraocular media to be optically transparent. However, in retinal ischemia, pro-angiogenic factors (including vascular endothelial growth factor- A, VEGF-A) induce aberrant guidance of...

    Collagenase activity was studied in human leukocytes, gingival crevicular fluid and bacterial plaque, with soluble radioactive collagen as stubstrate. Inflamed gingiva liberated vertebrate type collagenase into the crcvicular fluid in active form. Healthy gingiva, in contrast, released...

    The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the presence of the receptor for hyaluronan-mediated motility (RHAMM) in human conjunctival epithelium and in two widely used cell lines from human corneal (HCE) and conjunctival (IOBA-NHC) epithelia. We compared the distribution of RHAMM proteins and...

    Vascular endothelial-cadherin is the most important transmembrane component of endothelial adherens junctions, exclusively expressed by endothelial cells in all types of vessels. Targeting either the extracellular domain or the cytoplasmic tail deleteriously affects the junctional strength and...

    Identifying specific human body fluids and establishing their presence in traces can be crucial to help reconstructing alleged incidents in criminal cases. It is up to the forensic practitioner to test for the presence of body fluids, interpret the test results and draw scientifically supported...
