Disease relevance of cat

  • Furthermore, the coding region of zebrafish catalase was introduced into an expression vector, pET-20b(+), and transformed into Escherichia coli expression host BL21(DE3)pLysS [1].

High impact information on cat


Biological context of cat

  • Additional alterations at 80 micrograms/liter comprise proliferation of SER in males and progressive fractionation of RER in females, stacking of club-shaped mitochondria, a conspicuous decrease in peroxisomal catalase activity, infiltration of macrophages into the liver parenchyma, and a significant stimulation of hepatocytic mitosis [3].
