Biological Sciences

This interdisciplinary database offers abstracts and citations to a wide range of research in biomedicine, biotechnology, zoology and ecology, and some aspects of agriculture and veterinary science. Supporting over two dozen areas of expertise, this CSA database provides access to literature from over 8,000 serials, as well as conference proceedings, technical reports, monographs and selected books and patents.

Note: subscribers to this database also have complimentary access to Conference Papers Index, rolling 10-year file of MEDLINE, Plant Science, and a rolling 5-year file of TOXLINE.

Deep Indexing

ProQuest Deep Indexing: Biological Sciences supplements the Biological Sciences Database and select related files with access to deep indexing for tables, figures, graphs, charts and other illustrations from the scholarly research and technical literature for selected records. Records from the database appear with searches of the Biological Sciences Database and related databases to provide an additional path for discovery.

    AB: Abstract
    In previous studies, we reported that cytokine-induced neutrophil chemoattractant (CINC) was produced in the pituitary gland. Here we investigated the possibility of detection of CINC immunoreactivity in the pituitary folliculo-stellate (FS)-like cell line (TtT/GF). Intense immunoreactivity was observed by immunocytochemistry in the cytoplasm and cell processes of TtT/GF cells. CINC immunoreactivity was detected by an enzyme- linked immunosorbent assay in as little as 3 h after conditioning the medium with TtT/GF cells, and it increased significantly in a time-dependent manner during the first 24 h of the culture. This immunoreactivity could be induced by lipopolysaccharide and tumor necrosis factor- alpha in a time- and dose-dependent manner. We also observed the expression of CINC mRNA in TtT/GF cells and LPS increased CINC mRNA accumulation in TtT/GF cells. These findings indicate that CINC produced by FS cells may play a role as a paracrine factor of the anterior pituitary gland, and TtT/GF will provide a useful model system for studying the regulation of CINC secretion by FS cells.
