Unfolded protein response genes regulated by CED-1 are required for Caenorhabditis elegans innate immunity.
(Dev Cell, 2008-07)
The endoplasmic reticulum stress response, also known as the unfolded protein response (UPR), has been implicated in the normal physiology of immune defense and in several disorders, including diabetes, cancer, ...
Barnacle cement: a polymerization model based on evolutionary concepts.
(J Exp Biol, 2009-11)
Enzymes and biochemical mechanisms essential to survival are under extreme selective pressure and are highly conserved through evolutionary time. We applied this evolutionary concept to barnacle cement polymerization, a ...
Bayesian Spatial Quantile Regression.
(J Am Stat Assoc, 2011-03)
Tropospheric ozone is one of the six criteria pollutants regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act and has been linked with several adverse health effects, including mortality. ...
Mechanisms of specificity in neuronal activity-regulated gene transcription.
(Prog Neurobiol, 2011-08)
The brain is a highly adaptable organ that is capable of converting sensory information into changes in neuronal function. This plasticity allows behavior to be accommodated to the environment, providing an important evolutionary ...
Functional evolution of mammalian odorant receptors.
(PLoS Genet, 2012)
The mammalian odorant receptor (OR) repertoire is an attractive model to study evolution, because ORs have been subjected to rapid evolution between species, presumably caused by changes of the olfactory system to adapt ...
Functional neuroimaging of autobiographical memory.
(Trends Cogn Sci, 2007-05)
Functional neuroimaging studies of autobiographical memory have grown dramatically in recent years. These studies are important because they can investigate the neural correlates of processes that are difficult to study ...
