  • The metalloproteinase pregnancy-associated plasma pro-tein-A (PAPP-A) cleaves a subset of insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBP), which inhibit the activities of insulin-like growth factor (IGF). Through this proteolytic activity, PAPP-A is believed to regulate IGF bioavailability in several biological systems, including the human repro-ductive system and the cardiovascular system. PAPP-A adheres to mammalian cells by interactions with glycos-aminoglycan (GAG), thus targeting the proteolytic activity of PAPP-A to the cell surface. ...

  • In addition to local periodontal tissue involvement, chronic infection of the periodontium together with continuous up-regulation of pro-inflammatory responses and immune mediators may contribute to systemic sequel including diabetes, preterm delivery of lowweight birth babies, lung inflammation, arthritis and cardiovascular diseases (CVD).

  • Bacterial biofilms are regarded to be the primary aetiological factor in the initiation of gingival inflammation and subsequent destruction of periodontal tissues (Offenbacher 1996) and three major specific pathogens have been repeatedly identified as etiologic agents, namely Aggregatibacter (Actinobacillus) actinomycetemcomitans (Aa), Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) and Tannerella forsythia (Tf) (Socransky et al. 1998).

  • The biological changes underlying the transition process from gingival health to early inflammatory changes involve local increase in vascular permeability, edema and the recruitment and activation of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) (Delima and Van Dyke 2003). Acquired immune response becomes involved once antigen-presenting cells interact with immunocompetent cells, such as T and B lymphocytes, leading to the expansion of antibody-secreting plasma cells and the development of the chronic lesion (Gemmell and Seymour 2004).

  • Determination of periodontal diagnosis and the extent and severity of periodontal tissue damage through standard periodontal assessment has traditionally been based on an array of clinical measurements, including probing depth (PD), clinical attachment level (CAL), bleeding on probing (BOP), plaque index (PI) and radiographic findings.

  • I sent the columnist/tutor an e-mail, starting off softly: “Enjoyed your column, blah blah, impressed you also know so much about math, blah blah. And by the way, you might want to check your source on the split infinitives stuff. The Associated Press Stylebook, The Chicago Manual of Style, Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style, Garner’s Modern American Usage and others all say there’s no such rule.” The columnist wrote me back. Her response: “I could not disagree more.”

  • The biologic phenotype underlying chronic periodontitis, including the biofilm and the host response, tend to vary among individuals despite a similar clinical diagnostic category (Offenbacher et al. 2007). Consequently, disease screening should ideally be based on clinical determinations and the biologic phenotype (Page and Kornman 1997). Other associated factors include environmental exposures, as well as differences in genetic and possibly epigenetic composition (Page and Kornman 1997).

  • In some cases, there may be reasonable proxies for quantified benefits and costs. For example, a firm might possess relatively complete technical descriptions of material flows (inputs, intermediate products, emissions). These material quantities, while not explicitly translated into financial quantities, may provide rules of thumb that qualitatively inform decision-making and guard against severe errors in decision-making.

  • Green Infrastructure Neighbourhood Ecosystem Services (GINES) is derived from Tables [D] and [E]. It is an over-arching indicator which assumes a direct relationship between ecosystem health and the availability of regulating and cultural ecosystem services. Its calculation takes into account the fact that landscape artificial intensity reduces the supply of green infrastructure services and, at the same time, increases the number of potential beneficiaries (because of neighbourhood or easier access by transport infrastructures).

  • The papers in this collection were presented at a conference held in Saskatoon, Canada, on 17-19 October 1996 under the auspices of the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan. There are many people and several institutions to thank for making that conference, and this collection of essays, possible. The organisation of the conference was one of the pleasurable duties I undertook in 1996 as the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Visiting Professor at the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan.

  • CD91 plays an important role in the scavenging of apoptotic material, pos-sibly through binding to soluble pattern-recognition molecules. In this study, we investigated the interaction of CD91 with mannan-binding lectin (MBL), ficolins and lung surfactant proteins. Both MBL and L-ficolin were found to bind CD91. The MBL–CD91 interaction was time- and concentra-tion-dependent and could be inhibited by known ligands of CD91.

  • Protein ubiquitination mediated by ubiquitin ligases plays a very important role in a wide spectrum of biological processes including development and disease pathogenesis. RING finger protein 13 (RNF13) is a recently identi-fied ubiquitin ligase which contains an N-terminal protease-associated domain and a C-terminal RING finger domain separated by a transmem-brane region.

  • The present study aimed to investigate the role played by the leaflets of the plasma membrane in the uptake of drugs into cells and in their extrusion by P-glycoprotein and multidrug resistance-associated protein 1. Drug accumulation was monitored by fluorescence resonance energy transfer from trimethylammonium-diphenyl-hexatriene (TMA-DPH) located at the outer leaflet to a rhodamine analog.

  • The level of intracellular proteins is mainly regulated through modifications by ubiquitin ligases that target them for degradation. Members of the NEDD4 family of E3 ubiquitin ligases, such as Itch (atrophin-1 interacting protein 4), possess up to four WW domains for specific association with PY motif-containing substrates.

  • We evaluated the effects of previous pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) on the risk of obstructive lung disease. We analyzed population-based, the Second Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2001. Participants underwent chest X-rays (CXR) and spirometry, and qualified radiologists interpreted the presence of TB lesion independently. A total of 3,687 underwent acceptable spirometry and CXR. Two hundreds and ninty four subjects had evidence of previous TB on CXR with no subjects having evidence of active disease.
