Diet-induced obesity differentially regulates behavioral, biomechanical, and molecular risk factors for osteoarthritis in mice.
(Arthritis Res Ther, 2010)
INTRODUCTION: Obesity is a major risk factor for the development of osteoarthritis in both weight-bearing and nonweight-bearing joints. The mechanisms by which obesity influences the structural or symptomatic features of ...
Cryptococcal cell morphology affects host cell interactions and pathogenicity.
(PLoS Pathog, 2010-06-17)
Cryptococcus neoformans is a common life-threatening human fungal pathogen. The size of cryptococcal cells is typically 5 to 10 microm. Cell enlargement was observed in vivo, producing cells up to 100 microm. These morphological ...
Diagnosis of partial body radiation exposure in mice using peripheral blood gene expression profiles.
(PLoS One, 2010-07-12)
In the event of a terrorist-mediated attack in the United States using radiological or improvised nuclear weapons, it is expected that hundreds of thousands of people could be exposed to life-threatening levels of ionizing ...
Emergence and pathogenicity of highly virulent Cryptococcus gattii genotypes in the northwest United States.
(PLoS Pathog, 2010-04-22)
Cryptococcus gattii causes life-threatening disease in otherwise healthy hosts and to a lesser extent in immunocompromised hosts. The highest incidence for this disease is on Vancouver Island, Canada, where an outbreak is ...
Identification of microRNAs expressed in two mosquito vectors, Aedes albopictus and Culex quinquefasciatus.
(BMC Genomics, 2010-02-18)
BACKGROUND: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that post-transcriptionally regulate gene expression in a variety of organisms, including insects, vertebrates, and plants. miRNAs play important roles in cell development ...
