  • The first evidence that chemokines are associated with wound healing in vivo was reported in 1990 using the chemokine cCAF (chicken Chemotactic and Angiogenic Factor; the product of the 9E3 gene), a CXC chemokine that is now known to be the ortologue for human IL-8 [ 9 ] . cCAF is expressed to high levels very shortly after wounding and during the first 24-48 hours after injury, and remains elevated for at least 16 days after wounding [ 6 10 ] . It is primarily expressed by the fibroblasts of the granulation tissue, especially where interstitial collagen (Coll) is abundant, but the levels are also high in the endothelial cells of the microvessels, in the healing epidermis and in the connective tissue beneath the skin [ 6 11 ] . In the chicken chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) assay, low concentration of cCAF results in chemotaxis of monocyte/macrophages and lymphocytes and the formation of a granulation-like tissue beneath the chemokine-containing pellet [ 3 ] . After four days of exposure to this chemokine, the ectoderm of the CAMs becomes thickened and the amount of fibrillar collagen in the tissue is markedly increased, strongly suggesting that cCAF is able to initiate some of the primary events that lead to granulation tissue formation [ 3 ] .

  • Among the most abundant glucose-modified proteins detectable in the plasma of diabetic individuals are CML proteins [21], which are typically present at 1.6 to 2.3 μM concentrations in the plasma and urine of diabetic individuals [22,23].

  • Anti-Sa antibodies are directed towards an unknown antigen that is abundant in placental tissue and rheumatoid synovium [ 7].

  • Protein-protein interactions form scale-free networks, which show the characteristic power-law distribution of the node degrees; simply put, there is a small number of highly connected proteins (hubs), whereas the majority have a small number of partners (the most abundant class are proteins that are involved in just one interaction) [ 13 14 ] . Scale-free networks are highly tolerant to error (elimination of nodes at random) but are vulnerable to attack, i.e. elimination of the hubs [ 15 ] and, indeed, it has been found that the most highly connected proteins in yeast interaction networks tend to be essential [ 13 ] . This might explain the present findings, namely that a small number of yeast protein-protein interaction hubs evolve slowly due to strong purifying selection, whereas, for the great majority of the proteins, there is no discernible connection between the number of interactions and evolutionary rates.

  • The superb clarity and warmth of the water, the abundant sea life even in the shallows, and the proximity of all of this to the resorts are what make snorkeling here appealing.
