The enteric nervous system (ENS) is derived from enteric neural crest cells (ENCCs) that migrate into the gut. The zebrafish larva is a good model to study ENCC development due to its simplicity and transparency. However, little is known how individual ENCCs divide and become neurons.

Heat shock proteins are induced by activation of heat shock factor 1 (HSF1) in response to heat shock and protect against heat stress. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the downstream signa...
Thermotolerance is a phenomenon in which cells become resistant to stress by prior exposure to heat shock, and its development is associated with the induction of heat shock proteins (Hsps), including...
Image colorization refers to a computer-assisted process that adds colors to grayscale images. It is a challenging task since there is usually no one-to-one correspondence between color and local text...
Although microglial reaction to heat shock is considered to be protective, heat shock is still a potential hazard caused by high temperatures. Recent studies indicate that the inhibition of the 90-kDa...
The heat shock response (HSR) pathway is a highly conserved cellular stress response and mediated by its master regulator HSF1. Activation of the pathway results in the expression of chaperone protein...
RATIONALE: Radiofrequency therapy and radiofrequency ablation use a high-frequency electric current to kill tumor cells. Radiofrequency therapy can also cause the body to produce heat-shoc...
Description: The trial is designed to determine the response of the immune system of patients with CML to a vaccine made from their own tumor. Researchers believe that this particular vacc...
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from a person's tumor cells, such as gp96 heat shock protein-peptide complex, may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. PURP...
Description: The trial is designed to determine the response of the immune system of patients with breast cancer to a vaccine made from their own tumor. Researchers believe that this parti...
In Quebec, thousands of workers are concomitantly exposed to heat and chemical compounds. Exposure to heat induces physiological responses that help maintaining a stable body temperature. ...
A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. HSP40 heat-shock proteins play a role in regulating the ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASES activity of HSP70 heat-shock proteins.
Heat and cold stress-inducible, transcription factors that bind to inverted 5'-NGAAN-3' pentamer DNA sequences and are regulated by poly(ADP) ribosylation. They play essential roles as transcriptional activators of the HEAT-SHOCK RESPONSE by inducing expression of large classes of MOLECULAR CHAPERONES and heat-shock proteins. They also function in DNA REPAIR; transcriptional reactivation of latent HIV-1; and pre-mRNA processing and nuclear export of HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS during heat stress.
A subfamily of small heat-shock proteins that are closely related to ALPHA B-CRYSTALLIN. Hsp20 heat-shock proteins can undergo PHOSPHORYLATION by CYCLIC GMP-DEPENDENT PROTEIN KINASES.
Stress-inducible members of the heat-shock proteins 70 family. HSP72 heat shock proteins function with other MOLECULAR CHAPERONES to mediate PROTEIN FOLDING and to stabilize pre-existent proteins against aggregation.
A group of eukaryotic high-molecular mass heat-shock proteins that represent a subfamily of HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. Hsp110 proteins prevent protein aggregation and can maintain denatured proteins in folding-competent states.
