Particulate allergens potentiate allergic asthma in mice through sustained IgE-mediated mast cell activation.
(J Clin Invest, 2011-03)
Allergic asthma is characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness, inflammation, and a cellular infiltrate dominated by eosinophils. Numerous epidemiological studies have related the exacerbation of allergic asthma with an ...
TIRED OF PREJUDICE: THE SELF-REGULATORY EFFECT OF DISCRIMINATION ON HEALTH-RELATED BEHAVIORS
(ANNALS OF BEHAVIORAL MEDICINE, 2010-04)
Harmonic source wavefront aberration correction for ultrasound imaging.
(J Acoust Soc Am, 2011-01)
A method is proposed which uses a lower-frequency transmit to create a known harmonic acoustical source in tissue suitable for wavefront correction without a priori assumptions of the target or requiring a transponder. The ...
Pharmacological targeting of the mitochondrial phosphatase PTPMT1.
(J Pharmacol Exp Ther, 2010-05)
The dual-specificity protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) play integral roles in the regulation of cell signaling. There is a need for new tools to study these phosphatases, and the identification of inhibitors potentially ...
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. ...
A novel, non-apoptotic role for Scythe/BAT3: a functional switch between the pro- and anti-proliferative roles of p21 during the cell cycle.
(PLoS One, 2012)
BACKGROUND: Scythe/BAT3 is a member of the BAG protein family whose role in apoptosis has been extensively studied. However, since the developmental defects observed in Bat3-null mouse embryos cannot be explained solely ...
Universal quantum viscosity in a unitary Fermi gas.
A Fermi gas of atoms with resonant interactions is predicted to obey universal hydrodynamics, in which the shear viscosity and other transport coefficients are universal functions of the density and temperature. ...
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 ...
A PK2/Bv8/PROK2 antagonist suppresses tumorigenic processes by inhibiting angiogenesis in glioma and blocking myeloid cell infiltration in pancreatic cancer.
(PLoS One, 2013)
Infiltration of myeloid cells in the tumor microenvironment is often associated with enhanced angiogenesis and tumor progression, resulting in poor prognosis in many types of cancer. The polypeptide chemokine PK2 (Bv8, PROK2) ...
Uncertainty propagation through software dependability models
(Proceedings - International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering, ISSRE, 2011-12-01)
Stochastic models are often employed to study dependability of critical systems and assess various hardware and software fault-tolerance techniques. These models take into account the randomness in the events of interest ...
