Dynamics of PTH-induced disassembly of Npt2a/NHERF-1 complexes in living OK cells.
(American journal of physiology. Renal physiology, 2011-01)
Parathyroid hormone (PTH) inhibits the reabsorption of phosphate in the renal proximal tubule by disrupting the binding of the sodium-dependent phosphate transporter 2A (Npt2a) to the adapter protein sodium-hydrogen exchanger ...
Psychometric properties of the osteoporosis assessment questionnaire (OPAQ) 2.0: results from the multiple outcomes of raloxifene evaluation (MORE) study.
(BMC musculoskeletal disorders, 2014-01)
BACKGROUND: We explored psychometric properties of the Osteoporosis Assessment Questionnaire 2.0 in terms of reliability, validity, and responsiveness with generic, clinical, demographic, and preference-based data collected ...
Successful treatment of pneumatosis intestinalis with associated pneumoperitoneum and ileus with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
(BMJ case reports, 2017-05-30)
Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI), or the presence of air in the bowel wall, is a rare disorder that is associated with a variety of underlying diseases, including connective tissue disorders. PI presents on a spectrum from ...
Bladder fibrosis during outlet obstruction is triggered through the NLRP3 inflammasome and the production of IL-1β.
(American journal of physiology. Renal physiology, 2017-09)
Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) triggers inflammation in the bladder through the NLRP3 inflammasome. BOO also activates fibrosis, which is largely responsible for the decompensation of the bladder in the chronic state. ...
An Initial Evaluation of the Impact of Pokémon GO on Physical Activity.
(Journal of the American Heart Association, 2017-05-16)
Pokémon GO is a location-based augmented reality game. Using GPS and the camera on a smartphone, the game requires players to travel in real world to capture animated creatures, called Pokémon. We examined the impact of ...
Confounders versus Mediators: An Important Distinction.
The Digital Drag and Drop Pillbox: Design and Feasibility of a Skill-based Education Model to Improve Medication Management.
(The Journal of cardiovascular nursing, 2017-09)
We present the design and feasibility testing for the "Digital Drag and Drop Pillbox" (D-3 Pillbox), a skill-based educational approach that engages patients and providers, measures performance, and generates reports of ...
Paracrine Wnt5a-β-Catenin Signaling Triggers a Metabolic Program that Drives Dendritic Cell Tolerization.
Despite recent advances, many cancers remain refractory to available immunotherapeutic strategies. Emerging evidence indicates that the tolerization of local dendritic cells (DCs) within the tumor microenvironment promotes ...
A Transcriptional Signature Identifies LKB1 Functional Status as a Novel Determinant of MEK Sensitivity in Lung Adenocarcinoma.
(Cancer research, 2017-01)
LKB1 is a commonly mutated tumor suppressor in non-small cell lung cancer that exerts complex effects on signal transduction and transcriptional regulation. To better understand the downstream impact of loss of functional ...
The potential repertoire of the innate immune system in the bladder: expression of pattern recognition receptors in the rat bladder and a rat urothelial cell line (MYP3 cells).
(International urology and nephrology, 2015-12)
The urothelium is a frontline sensor of the lower urinary tract, sampling the bladder lumen and stimulating an immune response to infectious and noxious agents. Pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) recognize such agents ...
