Circadian rhythms can be entrained by a light-dark (LD) cycle and can also be reset pharmacologically, for example, by the CK1δ/ε inhibitor PF-670462. Here, we determine how these two independent signals affect circadian timekeeping from the molecular to the behavioral level. By developing a systems pharmacology model, we predict and experimentally validate(More)
BACKGROUND Serratia marcescens is an opportunistic bacterial pathogen with broad range of host ranging from vertebrates, invertebrates and plants. S. marcescens strain W2.3 was isolated from a diseased tilapia fish and it was suspected to be the causal agent for the fish disease as virulence genes were found within its genome. In this study, for the first(More)
We investigated the epidemiology of different serotypes of Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates causing bacteremic liver abscess (LA) using multilocus sequence typing (MLST). MLST and molecular typing were performed for 41 K1 (19 LA), 37 K2 (5 LA), and 33 non-K1/K2 (6 LA) isolates that were derived from a previous one-year K. pneumoniae bacteremia cohort.(More)
With pairwise testing, the test model is a list of N parameters. Each test case is an N-tuple; the test space is the cross product of the N parameters. A pairwise test is a set of N-tuples where every pairwise combination of the parameter values is contained in at least one of the N-tuples. Well-known algorithms generate pairwise test sets far smaller than(More)
In vitro screening for drug-drug interactions is an integral component of drug development, with larger emphasis now placed on the use of in vitro parameters to predict clinical inhibition. However, large variability exists in Ki reported for ketoconazole with midazolam, a model inhibitor-substrate pair for CYP3A. We reviewed the literature and extracted Ki(More)
