Functional Relevance of Improbable Antibody Mutations for HIV Broadly Neutralizing Antibody Development.
(Cell host & microbe, 2018-06)
HIV-1 broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) require high levels of activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID)-catalyzed somatic mutations for optimal neutralization potency. Probable mutations occur at sites of frequent ...
CABG or PCI for Diabetic Patients With Left Ventricular Dysfunction: Closing in on the Truth?
(Journal of the American College of Cardiology, 2018-02)
Reprint of ''Using neuroimaging to individualize TMS treatment for depression: Toward a new paradigm for imaging-guided intervention''.
The standard clinical technique for using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for major depressive disorder (MDD) is associated with limited efficacy to date. Such limited efficacy may be due to reliance ...
Pathogenesis of growth failure and partial reversal with gene therapy in murine and canine Glycogen Storage Disease type Ia
(Molecular Genetics and Metabolism, 2013)
Glycogen Storage Disease type Ia (GSD-Ia) in humans frequently causes delayed bone maturation, decrease in final adult height, and decreased growth velocity. This study evaluates the pathogenesis of growth failure and the ...
Impaired Recovery of Left Ventricular Function in Patients With Cardiomyopathy and Left Bundle Branch Block (vol 71, pg 306, 2018)
(JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF CARDIOLOGY, 2018-03-20)
Sex Difference in Patients With Ischemic Heart Failure Undergoing Surgical Revascularization: Results From the STICH Trial (Surgical Treatment for Ischemic Heart Failure).
Female sex is conventionally considered a risk factor for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and has been included as a poor prognostic factor in multiple cardiac operative risk evaluation scores. We aimed to investigate ...
Tenascin-C is an innate broad-spectrum, HIV-1-neutralizing protein in breast milk.
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2013-11)
Achieving an AIDS-free generation will require elimination of postnatal transmission of HIV-1 while maintaining the nutritional and immunologic benefits of breastfeeding for infants in developing regions. Maternal/infant ...
Looking beyond the exome: a phenotype-first approach to molecular diagnostic resolution in rare and undiagnosed diseases.
(Genetics in medicine : official journal of the American College of Medical Genetics, 2018-04)
PurposeTo describe examples of missed pathogenic variants on whole-exome sequencing (WES) and the importance of deep phenotyping for further diagnostic testing.MethodsGuided by phenotypic information, three children with ...
Six-minute walk distance after coronary artery bypass grafting compared with medical therapy in ischaemic cardiomyopathy.
(Open heart, 2018-01)
In patients with ischaemic left ventricular dysfunction, coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) may decrease mortality, but it is not known whether CABG improves functional capacity.To determine whether CABG compared with ...
A Testosterone Metabolite 19-Hydroxyandrostenedione Induces Neuroendocrine Trans-Differentiation of Prostate Cancer Cells via an Ectopic Olfactory Receptor.
(Frontiers in oncology, 2018-01)
Olfactory receptor OR51E2, also known as a Prostate Specific G-Protein Receptor, is highly expressed in prostate cancer but its function is not well understood. Through in silico and in vitro analyses, we identified 24 agonists ...
