ARFGAP1 promotes the formation of COPI vesicles, suggesting function as a component of the coat.
(J Cell Biol, 2002-10-14)
The role of GTPase-activating protein (GAP) that deactivates ADP-ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1) during the formation of coat protein I (COPI) vesicles has been unclear. GAP is originally thought to antagonize vesicle formation ...
Single Neurons and Primate Behavior
(Methods in Mind, 2009)
Social context-dependent singing-regulated dopamine.
(J Neurosci, 2006-08-30)
Like the mammalian striatum, the songbird striatum receives dense dopaminergic input from the midbrain ventral tegmental area-substantia nigra pars compacta complex. The songbird striatum also contains a unique vocal nucleus, ...
A corollary discharge for perceptual stability
Advances to Bayesian network inference for generating causal networks from observational biological data.
MOTIVATION: Network inference algorithms are powerful computational tools for identifying putative causal interactions among variables from observational data. Bayesian network inference algorithms hold particular promise ...
Facets of personality and the phenomenology of autobiographical memory
(Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2004-11-01)
The relationship between individual differences in autobiographical memory and personality was examined by having 118 undergraduates complete the NEO Personality Inventory after rating 15 word-cued autobiographical memories ...
The DLK-1 kinase promotes mRNA stability and local translation in C. elegans synapses and axon regeneration.
Growth cone guidance and synaptic plasticity involve dynamic local changes in proteins at axons and dendrites. The Dual-Leucine zipper Kinase MAPKKK (DLK) has been previously implicated in synaptogenesis and axon outgrowth ...
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 ...
Do smokers respond to health shocks?
(Review of Economics and Statistics, 2001-11-01)
This paper reports the first effort to use data to evaluate how new information, acquired through exogenous health shocks, affects people's longevity expectations. We find that smokers react differently to health shocks ...
A molecular neuroethological approach for identifying and characterizing a cascade of behaviorally regulated genes.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2006-10-10)
Songbirds have one of the most accessible neural systems for the study of brain mechanisms of behavior. However, neuroethological studies in songbirds have been limited by the lack of high-throughput molecular resources ...
