Type-1 Brassica napus Diacylglycerol Acyltransferases: Enzyme Characterization and Molecular Tools for Increasing Storage Lipid Production in YeastDownload
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) catalyzes the final step in the acyl-CoA- dependent biosynthesis of triacylglycerol (TAG). The level of DGAT activity may have a substantial effect on the flow of carbon into TAG in many organisms. In plants, yeast, and animals, two families of...
Huh7.5 Cells Grown in Human Serum as a Model to Study the Effects of Hepatitis C Virus Infection on Lipid CatabolismDownload
Our goal is to study the additional elements of the mechanism of steatosis underlying hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Human hepatoma Huh7.5 cells cultured in human serum (HS) were used as a model to study the development of steatosis. Huh7.5 cells grown in HS media were chosen to study the...
