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 ...
A putatively functional polymorphism in the HTR2C gene is associated with depressive symptoms in white females reporting significant life stress.
(PloS one, 2014-01)
Psychosocial stress is well known to be positively associated with subsequent depressive symptoms. Cortisol response to stress may be one of a number of biological mechanisms that links psychological stress to depressive ...
Educating future providers of personalized medicine.
(North Carolina medical journal, 2013-11)
The role of macrophages in hypertension and its complications.
(Pflugers Archiv : European journal of physiology, 2017-04)
Circulating monocytes and tissue macrophages play complex roles in the pathogenesis of hypertension, a highly prevalent disease associated with catastrophic cardiovascular morbidity. In the vasculature and kidney, ...
HIV-1 Envelope Glycoproteins from Diverse Clades Differentiate Antibody Responses and Durability among Vaccinees.
(Journal of virology, 2018-04)
Induction of broadly cross-reactive antiviral humoral responses with the capacity to target globally diverse circulating strains is a key goal for HIV-1 immunogen design. A major gap in the field is the identification of ...
TNFRSF1B +676 T>G polymorphism predicts survival of non-small cell lung cancer patients treated with chemoradiotherapy.
(BMC cancer, 2011-10-14)
The dysregulation of gene expression in the TNF-TNFR superfamily has been involved in various human cancers including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Furthermore, functional polymorphisms in TNF-α and TNFRSF1B genes ...
Correlation between base-excision repair gene polymorphisms and levels of in-vitro BPDE-induced DNA adducts in cultured peripheral blood lymphocytes.
(PloS one, 2012-01)
In vitro benzo[a]pyrene diol epoxide (BPDE)-induced DNA adducts in cultured peripheral lymphocytes have been shown to be a phenotypic biomarker of individual's DNA repair phenotype that is associated with cancer risk. In ...
CASP7 variants modify susceptibility to cervical cancer in Chinese women.
(Scientific reports, 2015-01)
Polymorphisms in Caspase-7 (CASP7) may modulate the programmed cell death and thus contribute to cervical cancer risk. In this case-control study of 1,486 cervical cancer cases and 1,301 controls, we investigated associations ...
Genetic variations of the ADIPOQgene and risk of prostate cancer in Chinese Han men.
(Asian journal of andrology, 2014-11)
Adiponectin secreted by adipose tissue has been implicated in prostate carcinogenesis. Genetic variations in ADIPOQ are thought to influence the activity of adiponectin, thus relating to cancer occurrence. In this hospital-based ...
Association of combined p73 and p53 genetic variants with tumor HPV16-positive oropharyngeal cancer.
(PloS one, 2012-01)
p53 and p73 interact with human papillomavirus (HPV) E6 and E7 oncoproteins. The interplay between p53 and p73 and HPV16 may lead to deregulation of cell cycle and apoptosis, through which inflammation/immune responses control ...
