    • Genome-wide association study of Lp-PLA(2) activity and mass in the Framingham Heart Study. 

      Suchindran, Sunil; Rivedal, David; Guyton, John R; Milledge, Tom; Gao, Xiaoyi; Benjamin, Ashlee; Rowell, Jennifer; ... (9 authors) (PLoS Genet, 2010-04-29)
      Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A(2) (Lp-PLA(2)) is an emerging risk factor and therapeutic target for cardiovascular disease. The activity and mass of this enzyme are heritable traits, but major genetic determinants ...
    • The exon junction complex component Magoh controls brain size by regulating neural stem cell division. 

      Silver, Debra L; Watkins-Chow, Dawn E; Schreck, Karisa C; Pierfelice, Tarran J; Larson, Denise M; Burnetti, Anthony J; Liaw, Hung-Jiun; ... (11 authors) (Nat Neurosci, 2010-05)
