Diesel exhaust particles activate the matrix-metalloproteinase-1 gene in human bronchial epithelia in a beta-arrestin-dependent manner via activation of RAS.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2009-03)
BACKGROUND: Diesel exhaust particles (DEPs) are globally relevant air pollutants that exert a detrimental human health impact. However, mechanisms of damage by DEP exposure to human respiratory health and human susceptibility ...
Dominance, politics, and physiology: voters' testosterone changes on the night of the 2008 United States presidential election.
(PLoS One, 2009-10-21)
BACKGROUND: Political elections are dominance competitions. When men win a dominance competition, their testosterone levels rise or remain stable to resist a circadian decline; and when they lose, their testosterone levels ...
The toxicology of climate change: environmental contaminants in a warming world.
(Environ Int, 2009-08)
Climate change induced by anthropogenic warming of the earth's atmosphere is a daunting problem. This review examines one of the consequences of climate change that has only recently attracted attention: namely, the effects ...
Resolving response, decision, and strategic control: evidence for a functional topography in dorsomedial prefrontal cortex.
(J Neurosci, 2009-10-21)
The dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (DMPFC) plays a central role in aspects of cognitive control and decision making. Here, we provide evidence for an anterior-to-posterior topography within the DMPFC using tasks that evoke ...
Common genetic variation and the control of HIV-1 in humans.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-12)
To extend the understanding of host genetic determinants of HIV-1 control, we performed a genome-wide association study in a cohort of 2,554 infected Caucasian subjects. The study was powered to detect common genetic variants ...
