Central nervous system myelin is a dynamic entity arising from membrane processes extended from oligodendrocytes, which form a tightly-wrapped multilamellar structure around neurons. In mature myelin, the predominant splice isoform of classic MBP is 18.5kDa. In solution, MBP is an extended, intrinsically disordered protein with a large effective protein(More)
Periodontal ligament (PDL) cells maintain the attachment of the tooth to alveolar bone. These cells reside at a site in which they are challenged frequently by bacterial products and proinflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta), during infections. In our initial studies we observed that IL-1beta down-regulates the osteoblast-like(More)
[1] At various altitudes in the plasmasphere, sounder pulses from the Radio Plasma Imager (RPI) instrument on the IMAGE satellite can couple strongly to protons, a process revealed in echo time delay versus frequency forms that arrive at multiples of the local proton cyclotron period t p. Lower-altitude (<4000 km) versions of two of these proton cyclotron(More)
