Voxelation and gene expression tomography or GET are novel methods for the high-throughput acquisition of gene expression patterns in the mammalian brain. Voxelation employs analysis of spatially registered voxels (cubes), while GET employs analysis of sets of parallel slices rotated about multiple independent axes of rotation. Both methods employ(More)
Autism spectrum disorders have been associated with maternally derived duplications that involve the imprinted region on the proximal long arm of chromosome 15. Here we describe a boy with a chromosome 15 duplication arising from a 3:1 segregation error of a paternally derived translocation between chromosome 15q13.2 and chromosome 9q34.12, which led to(More)
Identification of behavioral loci through complex trait mapping remains a widely employed approach but suffers from poor gene localization and low replicability. Genome-tagged mice (GTMs) are overlapping sets of congenic strains spanning the whole genome and offer the possibilities of superior mapping power and reproducibility. In this study, three GTM(More)
Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) can be maintained in culture indefinitely while retaining the capacity to generate any type of cell in the body, and therefore not only hold great promise for tissue repair and regeneration, but also provide a powerful tool for modeling human disease and understanding biological development. In order to fulfill the full potential(More)
Cell-cell adhesion molecule cadherin-11(CDH11) is preferentially expressed in basal-like breast cancer cells and facilitates breast cancer cell migration by promoting small GTPase Rac activity. However, how the expression of CDH11 is regulated in breast cancer cells is not understood. Here, we show that CDH11 is transcriptionally controlled by homeobox C8(More)
Curcumin, a spice component as well as a traditional Asian medicine, has been reported to inhibit proliferation of a variety of cancer cells but is limited in application due to its low potency and bioavailability. Here, we have assessed the therapeutic effects of a novel and water soluble curcumin analog,(More)
Numerous genetic targets and some individual pathways associated with aging have been identified using the worm model. However, less is known about the genetic mechanisms of aging in genome wide, particularly at the level of multiple pathways as well as the regulatory networks during aging. Here, we employed the gene expression datasets of three time points(More)
