- Mitogenic activity of insulin in the culture of a trypanosome: duration and dose responseDavid Mackintosh
Faculty of Science, School of Life Sciences, Kingston University, Penrhyn Road, Kingston, Surrey KT1 2EE, UK
Cell Biol Int 27:75-8. 2003..These findings suggest a possible role for host insulin and/or trypanosomal insulin-like molecules in regulating parasite growth in vivo...
- Beta-1, 3-glucan modulates PKC signalling in Lymnaea stagnalis defence cells: a role for PKC in H2O2 production and downstream ERK activationAudrey H Lacchini
School of Life Sciences, Kingston University, Penrhyn Road, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, KT1 2EE, UK
J Exp Biol 209:4829-40. 2006..Given that H(2)O(2) is an important anti-pathogen molecule, and that haemocytes play a crucial role in the elimination of invading organisms, PKC signalling in these cells is likely to be crucial to the molluscan innate defence response...
- Spreading by snail (Lymnaea stagnalis) defence cells is regulated through integrated PKC, FAK and Src signallingAnthony J Walker
School of Life Sciences, Kingston University, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, UK
Cell Tissue Res 341:131-45. 2010..stagnalis haemocytes. We propose a model in which integrin engagement mediates association of PKC with FAK/Src complexes to promote focal adhesion assembly during immune recognition by these cells...
