"During a winter thunderstorm in Kanazawa, our monitors detected a simultaneous TGF and lightning strike.
The intricate cross talk among various growth factor signaling pathways in HCC growth involves insulin-like growth factors (IGF), platelet-derived growth factors (PDGF), transforming growth factors (TGF), fibroblast growth factors (FGF), and others [53].
Abbreviations ChIP: Chromatin immunoprecipitation ECM: Extracellular matrix EGF: Epidermal growth factor receptor ERK: Extracellular signal-regulated kinase HPCs: Hepatic progenitor cells HSCs: Hepatic stellate cells PDGF: Platelet-derived growth factor PDGFR: Platelet-derived growth factor receptor RSK: Ribosomal S6 kinase RT-PCR: Reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction TGF: Transforming growth factor YB-1: Y-box protein-1.
TGFs occur unpredictably and fleetingly, with durations less than a thousandth of a second, and remain poorly understood.
Before being upgraded, the GBM could capture only TGFs that were bright enough to trigger the instrument's on-board system, which meant many weaker events were missed.
Even more surprising, TGFs contain antimatter, the doppelganger of normal matter.
Fermi has detected 130 TGFs. In four of them, positrons also struck the satellite.
Platelets (PLTs) contain an assortment of growth factors (GFs), in particular PLT-derived GFs (PDGFs), transforming GFs (TGFs), and vascular endothelial GF (VEGF) (1).
The globe experiences lightning some 50 times a second, yet the details of what initiates this common occurrence and what effects it has on the atmosphere - lightning may be linked to incredibly powerful and energetic bursts called terrestrial gamma ray flashes, or TGFs -- remains a mystery.
Osteogenic induced BM MSC (day 3 after induction) served as positive control for the ERK1/2 activation (Figure 3) since the activation of ERK1/2 is required to induce the expression of matrix producing genes, such as collagens, bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) or transforming growth factors (TGFs).
