WNT signaling regulates self-renewal and differentiation of prostate cancer cells with stem cell characteristics
Prostate cancer cells with stem cell characteristics were identified in human prostate cancer cell lines by their ability to form from single cells self-renewing prostaspheres in non-adherent cultures. Prostaspheres exhibited ...
A meta-analysis of sugarbeet yield responses to nitrogen fertilizer measured in England since 1980
The data from 161 experiments testing the response of sugarbeet yield to nitrogen fertilizer were assembled in a database. Three commonly used N response models (Mitscherlich, linear plus exponential and bilinear) were ...
The support of neural stem cells transplanted into stroke-induced brain cavities by PLGA particles
Stroke causes extensive cellular loss that leads to a disintegration of the afflicted brain tissue. Although transplanted neural stein cells can recover some of the function lost after stroke, recovery is incomplete and ...
