High impact information on LOC396479

  • Keratinized epithelial cells and moderate numbers of keratin pearls were readily observed [1].
  • A considerable decrease in transition temperature with urea and its helical structure content estimated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), and the disappearance of one of the diffraction peaks with heating at 160 degrees C for 30 min, indicated that DSC could be used to evaluate the thermal behavior of keratin [2].
  • Monoclonal antibodies and antisera against leucocytes, T lymphocytes, CD4, B lymphocytes, mononuclear phagocytes, MHC class II, and keratin were used [3].
  • In contrast the cortex still contained stromal cells with MHC class II molecules and keratin [3].
  • Although the reaction of DDD to SH and SS groups was moderate, a presence of keratin was strongly suggested immunohistochemically by using the rabbit anti-keratin antiserum [4].
