PURPOSE DNA replication licensing factors and Aurora kinases play critical roles in maintaining genomic integrity. We used multiparameter analyses of these cell cycle regulatory proteins to investigate their role in the progression of epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN In a cohort of 143 patients, we linked the protein expression(More)
Nuclear morphometry is a method for quantitative measurement of histopathologic changes in the appearance of stained cell nuclei. Numerous studies have indicated that these assessments may provide clinically relevant information related to the degree of progression and malignant potential of breast neoplasia. Nuclear features are derived from computerized(More)
Neurofibrillary tangles are one of the main neuropathological features of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and are composed of abnormally phosphorylated forms of a microtubule-associated protein called tau. What causes this abnormal phosphorylation is unknown. Our previous studies have implicated herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) as an etiological agent in AD, and(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) afflicts around 20 million people worldwide and so there is an urgent need for effective treatment. Our research showing that herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) is a risk factor for AD for the brains of people who possess a specific genetic factor and that the virus causes accumulation of key AD proteins (β-amyloid (Aβ) and(More)
Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) infection of cultured cells causes the formation of β-amyloid (Aβ) and abnormal tau (P-tau). These molecules comprise the main components of the abnormal protein deposits, amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles, respectively, in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains, and they have been implicated in disease development. The(More)
