Homeodomain interacting protein kinase (Hipk) is a member of a novel family of serine/threonine kinases. Extensive biochemical studies of vertebrate homologs, particularly Hipk2, have identified a growing list of interactors, including proteins involved in transcriptional regulation, chromatin remodeling and essential signaling pathways such as Wnt and(More)
In an attempt to determine whether certain physical characteristics discriminated between people with and without herniated intervertebral lumbar discs, volunteers (N = 40) who were diagnosed as having a herniated lumbar disc were compared to control subjects (N = 40) who had been randomly selected and matched by age and sex. All subjects completed a(More)
Drosophila nemo was first identified as a gene required for tissue polarity during ommatidial development. We have extended the analysis of nemo and found that it participates in multiple developmental processes. It is required during wing development for wing shape and vein patterning. We observe genetic interactions between nemo and mutations in the(More)
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, at least 17 DNA replication genes are coordinately expressed at the G1/S boundary during the cell cycle. All of these genes have the DNA sequence element ACGCGT in their 5' upstream regulatory regions. This sequence has been shown to be essential for periodic expression of the POL1, CDC9, and TMP1 genes. The cyclin (CLN1 and(More)
Potassium channels vary in their function and regulation, yet they maintain a number of important features - they are involved in the control of potassium flow, cell volume, cell membrane resting potential, cell excitability and hormone release. The potassium (K(+)) inward rectifier (Kir) superfamily of channels are potassium selective channels, that are(More)
This study examines the consequences of adding a geriatric subacute unit to the traditional health care mix offered by a nonprofit hospital. Historically, geriatric health care offerings have been limited to either acute care units or long-term care facilities. The study's findings demonstrate that the addition of a subacute unit that is operated by an(More)
