Cox-1 and Cox-2 specific inhibitors exert chemo-preventative activity. However, the exact mechanisms for this activity remain unclear. Increasing evidence suggests that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs regulate gene expression, which may be responsible, in part, for this activity. In this study, human colorectal carcinoma HCT-116 cells were treated(More)
We examined the maternal behavior of hubb/hubb mutant mice and normal control (+/hubb) siblings. From previous observations we noted that mutants groom their pups less, suckle less than normal, and often cannibalize the young. To date, these observations had not been quantified. Although prolactin (PRL) is linked to maternal behavior, it was difficult to(More)
Characterizing the last phases of embryonic avian brain development are increased brain activity and increased absorption of shell calcium. The calcium-binding protein, calmodulin, regulates many activities of calcium. In neural tissue, calmodulin modulates neural transmission, and is required for the phosphorylation of synaptosomal proteins. Therefore, the(More)
