Expression, purification and functionality of bioactive recombinant human vascular endothelial growth factor VEGF165 in E. coli
Angiogenesis, the growth of blood vessel from the existing vasculature, depends on the expression of various growth factors but Vascular Endothelial Growth factor (VEGF) ranks as the key inducer and the central mediator that promotes vascular permeability.
Soil living amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum has been used as a leading model organism for studying eukaryotic cell differentiation and directional cell migration. These functions are interconnected: starved Dictyostelium cells form multicellular aggregates by directional cell migration, and
Cells maintain vesicles transportation, cell migration, cell polarity, mitosis, cell shape and even cell signaling through cytoskeleton, which is the most conservative and essential structures in diverse organism. F-actin and microtubule, two components of the cytoskeleton, have
Healthy blood stem cells and invasive tumor cells use similar mechanisms to exit the circulatory system and penetrate other tissues. Cell migration is a multi-step process in which a number of adhesion molecules find their partners and
