    Abstract: Polyomavirus virions such as simian virus 40 (SV40), antinuclear antibodies such as immunoglobulin G (IgG) and steroid hormones all enter the nucleus from the extracellular environment. Testosterone-bovine serum albumin conjugate labeled with 2 nm colloidal gold (testosterone-BSA-gold) is taken up by endocytosis into target cells, and enter the nuc... Show More

    Abstract: Sirtuin is an evolutionally conserved histone deacetylase. The effects of sirtuin activator, resveratrol and inhibitor, nicotinamide on early Dictyostelium development upon starvation were examined. The cell streaming was appeared at 7 h and tight aggregates was formed at 24 h in control cells under submerged culture. Resveratrol treatment accelera... Show More
