Inferences of Competence from Faces Predict Election Outcomes
We show that inferences of competence based solely on facial appearance predicted the outcomes of U.S. congressional elections better than chance (e.g., 68.8% of the Senate races in 2004) and alsoExpand

Differential GC content between exons and introns establishes distinct strategies of splice-site recognition.
During evolution segments of homeothermic genomes underwent a GC content increase. Our analyses reveal that two exon-intron architectures have evolved from an ancestral state of low GC content exonsExpand

Alternative splicing: current perspectives
Alternative splicing is a well‐characterized mechanism by which multiple transcripts are generated from a single mRNA precursor. By allowing production of several protein isoforms from one pre‐mRNA,Expand

Probability as a psychological distance: Construal and preferences
We argue that probability, like space and time, instantiates psychological distance. Unlikely outcomes may seem more remote than likely outcomes and may therefore be construed at a relatively highExpand

Intronic Alus Influence Alternative Splicing
Examination of the human transcriptome reveals higher levels of RNA editing than in any other organism tested to date. This is indicative of extensive double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) formation within theExpand

Alternative splicing and disease
Splicing is a molecular mechanism, by which introns are removed from an mRNA precursor and exons are ligated to form a mature mRNA. Mutations that cause defects in the splicing mechanism are known toExpand

Insights into the connection between cancer and alternative splicing.
Computational and experimental evidence has revealed that cancerous cells express transcript variants that are abnormally spliced, suggesting that mRNAs are more frequently alternatively spliced inExpand

The association between nonadherence and glycated hemoglobin among type 2 diabetes patients using basal insulin analogs
Background The main objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between adherence and both clinical (ie, glycated hemoglobin [HbA1c]) and nonclinical (ie, health status, workExpand

Tophi and frequent gout flares are associated with impairments to quality of life, productivity, and increased healthcare resource use: Results from a cross-sectional survey
BackgroundThe prevalence of gout is increasing, and most research on the associated burden has focused on serum urate (sUA) levels. The present study quantifies the impact of the presence of tophiExpand

Impact of caring for persons with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia on caregivers’ health outcomes: findings from a community based survey in Japan
BackgroundThis study assessed how family caregivers for patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or dementia in Japan differed from non-caregivers in characteristics and health outcomes (i.e.,Expand
