    • A discrete chromatin loop in the mouse Tcra-Tcrd locus shapes the TCRδ and TCRα repertoires. 

      Chen, L; Carico, Z; Shih, HY; Krangel, MS (Nat Immunol, 2015-10)
      The locus encoding the T cell antigen receptor (TCR) α-chain and δ-chain (Tcra-Tcrd) undergoes recombination of its variable-diversity-joining (V(D)J) segments in CD4(-)CD8(-) double-negative thymocytes and CD4(+)CD8(+) ...
    • Colloidal quantum dot absorption enhancement in flexible Fano filters 

      Brown, GJ; Chen, L; Gao, Shuai; Ma, Z; Pang, H; Pate, R; Qiang, Z; ... (12 authors) (Applied Physics Letters, 2010-03-12)
      We report here modified absorption property of colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) inside flexible Fano filters-made of patterned single crystalline silicon nanomembrane transferred onto flexible plastic substrates. Enhanced optical ...
    • Deferoxamine regulates neuroinflammation and iron homeostasis in a mouse model of postoperative cognitive dysfunction. 

      Chen, L; Gu, J; Li, X; Li, Y; Ning, J-L; Pan, K; Tao, G; ... (9 authors) (J Neuroinflammation, 2016-10-12)
      BACKGROUND: Postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a common complication after surgery, especially amongst elderly patients. Neuroinflammation and iron homeostasis are key hallmarks of several neurological disorders. ...
    • Pairing QuantiFERON gold in-tube with opt-out HIV testing in a tuberculosis contact investigation in the Southeastern United States. 

      Baker, AV; Bissette, Deborah J; Chen, L; Cox, GM; Erlandson, K; Gadkowski, LB; Goswami, ND; ... (12 authors) (AIDS Patient Care STDS, 2010-09)
      Knowing one's HIV status is particularly important in the setting of recent tuberculosis (TB) exposure. Blood tests for assessment of tuberculosis infection, such as the QuantiFERON Gold in-tube test (QFT; Cellestis Limited, ...
    • The cellular lipids of Romboutsia. 

      Chen, L; Gerritsen, J; Goldfine, H; Guan, Ziqiang; Smidt, H (Biochim Biophys Acta, 2016-09)
      We have examined the lipids of three isolates, Romboutsia lituseburensis, Romboutsia ilealis, and Romboutsia sp. strain FRIFI, of the newly described genus Romboutsia by two-dimensional thin-layer chromatography (2D-TLC) ...
    • The diversity and plasticity of adult hepatic progenitor cells and their niche. 

      Chen, J; Chen, L; Zern, MA; Theise, ND; Diehl, Anna Mae; Liu, P; Duan, Y (Liver Int, 2017-01-30)
      The liver is a unique organ for homoeostasis with regenerative capacities. Hepatocytes possess a remarkable capacity to proliferate upon injury; however, in more severe scenarios liver regeneration is believed to arise from ...
    • The effects of the synthetic nocistatin on blood vessel activities 

      Chen, Yong; Chen, Q; Chen, L; Yang, D; Dong, S; Wang, R (Chinese Science Bulletin, 2001-01-01)
      Nocistatin was synthesized by the solid-phase peptide synthesis method. Its effects on rat systemic arterial pressure; rat hindquarter vascular bed resistance; tension of rabbit pectoral, abdominal, femoral aorta muscle ...
    • The evolutionary history of ferns inferred from 25 low-copy nuclear genes. 

      Burge, DO; Chen, L; Chen, T; DeGironimo, L; dePamphilis, C; Deyholos, M; Graham, SW; ... (23 authors) (Am J Bot, 2015-07)
      UNLABELLED: • PREMISE OF THE STUDY: Understanding fern (monilophyte) phylogeny and its evolutionary timescale is critical for broad investigations of the evolution of land plants, and for providing the point of comparison ...
    • The genome of a songbird. 

      Adam, I; Arnold, AP; Backström, N; Balakrishnan, CN; Batzer, MA; Birkhead, T; Blatti, Charles A; ... (82 authors) (Nature, 2010-04-01)
