1. ATP generation in a host cell in early-phase infection is increased by upregulation of cytochrome c oxidase activity via the p2 peptide from human immunodeficiency virus type 1 Gag.

    Retrovirology 12(1):97 (2015) PMID 26577226 PMCID PMC4650201

    Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) must take advantage of its own proteins with two or more functions to successfully replicate. Although many attempts have been made to determine the function of viral proteins encoded in the HIV-1 genome, the role of the p2 peptide, a spacer between th...
  2. Nucleotide-sugar transporter SLC35D1 is critical to chondroitin sulfate synthesis in cartilage and skeletal development in mouse and human.

    Nature Medicine 13(11):1363 (2007) PMID 17952091

    Proteoglycans are a family of extracellular macromolecules comprised of glycosaminoglycan chains of a repeated disaccharide linked to a central core protein. Proteoglycans have critical roles in chondrogenesis and skeletal development. The glycosaminoglycan chains found in cartilage proteoglycan...
  3. Establishment and characterization of clonal cell lines from the vagina of p53-deficient young mice.

    In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology - Animal 38(10):547 (2002) PMID 12762836

    Clonal cell lines have been established from vagina of prepubertal female p53(-/-) mice. Because the mouse vagina has a dual origin (the cranial three-fifths derived from the Müllerian duct and the caudal two-fifths derived from the urogenital sinus), both parts were separately subjected to clon...
