The National Center for Biotechnology Information has created the dbGaP public repository for individual-level phenotype, exposure, genotype and sequence data and the associations between them. dbGaP assigns stable, unique identifiers to studies and subsets of information from those studies, including documents, individual phenotypic variables, tables of(More)
Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) are secreted molecules that can activate the RAS/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway to serve crucial functions during embryogenesis. Through an in situ hybridization screen for genes with restricted expression patterns during early zebrafish development, we identified a group of genes that exhibit similar(More)
Excessive complement activation can result in extreme tissue damage and systemic inflammatory responses, similar to innate immune responses rapidly elicited after systemic adenovirus (Ad) injections. To determine if Ad interactions with the complement system impact upon Ad-induced innate immune responses, we injected Ad into complement-deficient,(More)
Nearly 50 years ago, the discovery of interferon prompted the notion that host cells innately respond to viral invasion. Since that time, technological advances have allowed this response to be extensively characterized and dissected in vitro. However, these advances have only recently been applied to highly complex, in vivo biological systems. To this end,(More)
Glycogen storage disease type II (GSD-II) patients manifest symptoms of muscular dystrophy secondary to abnormal glycogen storage in cardiac and skeletal muscles. For GSD-II, we hypothesized that a fully deleted adenovirus (FDAd) vector expressing hGAA via nonviral regulatory elements (PEPCK promoter/ApoE enhancer) would facilitate long-term efficacy and(More)
