On the other hand, nanobacteria
is claimed to form apatite structures serving as a crystallization center for stone formation .
Intracellular co-localization of SPLUNC1 protein with nanobacteria
in nasopharyngeal carcinoma epithelia HNE1 cells depended on the bactericidal permeability increasing protein domain.

To find out more about the ecological side of things, I talked to Dunn, author of Every Living Thing: Man's Obsessive Quest to Catalog Life, from Nanobacteria
to New Monkeys; The Wild Life of Our Bodies: Predators, Parasites, and Partners that Shape Who We Are Today; and his most recent book, The Man Who Touched His Own Heart: True Tales of Science, Surgery, and Mystery.
The Oxfordian nanobacteria
reported in this paper are comparable in size with published examples of nanobacteria
bodies mentioned by Schrieber and Arnott (2003).
(83) Although processing can remove most of the FBS prior to clinical use, trace bovine proteins may remain sufficient to trigger an immune response and some contaminants (such as viruses, prions, and nanobacteria
) are impossible to remove.
In the second activity, students research one of the following controversial discoveries: nanobacteria
(Young & Martel, 2009), the "fossilized Martian bacteria" observed on the meteorite ALH84001 (McKay et al., 1996), or Craig Venter's 2010 announcement of the first creation of "synthetic life" (Gibson et al., 2010).
Results of serologic testing for nanobacteria
were also unconfirmed because they were based on nonspecific antibodies (3).
Detection of nanobacteria
infection in type III prostatitis.
have also been hypothesized as an etiologic cause of sarcoidosis.
Indeed, she discovered that nanobacteria
is found in kidney stones.
