The catalog of genetic variants in the horse genome originates from a few select animals, the majority originating from the Thoroughbred mare used for the equine genome sequencing project. The purpose of this study was to identify genetic variants, including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), insertion/deletion polymorphisms (INDELs), and copy number(More)
The ability to continue increasing processor frequency and single thread performance is being severely limited by exponential increases in leakage and active power. To continue to improve system performance, future designs will rely on increasing numbers of smaller, more power efficient cores and special purpose accelerators integrated on a chip. In this(More)
2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) and similar environmental contaminants have been demonstrated to be potent cardiovascular teratogens in developing piscine and avian species. In the present study, we investigated the effects of TCDD on gene expression during murine cardiovascular development. C57Bl6N pregnant mice were dosed with 1.5, 3.0, or 6.0(More)
Atherogenic stimuli trigger complex responses in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) that culminate in activation/repression of overlapping signal transduction cascades involving oxidative stress. In the case of benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon present in tobacco smoke, the atherogenic response involves interference with redox(More)
To study the complex interaction between oxidative injury and the pathogenesis of vascular disease, vascular gene expression was examined in male Sprague-Dawley rats given 35 or 70 mg/kg allylamine, a synthetic amine converted to acrolein and hydrogen peroxide within the vascular wall. Vascular lesions and extensive vascular remodeling, coupled to increased(More)
