Peritumoral diffusion tensor imaging of high-grade gliomas and metastatic brain tumors.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is an advanced MR technique that describes the movement of water molecules by using two metrics, mean diffusivity (MD), and fractional anisotropyExpand

Diffusion-tensor MR imaging of intracranial neoplasia and associated peritumoral edema: introduction of the tumor infiltration index.
PURPOSE To determine whether diffusion-tensor magnetic resonance (MR) imaging metrics of peritumoral edema can be used to differentiate intra- from extraaxial lesions, metastatic lesions fromExpand

Retrotransposon insertions in the clonal evolution of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is typically diagnosed after the disease has metastasized; it is among the most lethal forms of cancer. We recently described aberrant expression of an openExpand

Mice deficient for N-ras: impaired antiviral immune response and T-cell function.
Ras proteins have a key role in the regulation of several cellular functions, and are involved in a significant percentage of human tumors. However, the specific functions of the different RasExpand

Inhibition of Ras oncogenic activity by Ras protooncogenes
Point mutations in ras genes have been found in a large number and wide variety of human tumors. These oncogenic Ras mutants are locked in an active GTP‐bound state that leads to a constitutive andExpand

Complex effects of Ras proto-oncogenes in tumorigenesis.
Ras proteins have been found mutated in about one-third of human tumors. In vitro, Ras has been shown to regulate distinct and contradictory effects, such as cellular proliferation and apoptosis.Expand

The LysR‐type transcriptional regulator, CidR, regulates stationary phase cell death in Staphylococcus aureus
The Staphylococcus aureus LysR‐type transcriptional regulator, CidR, activates the expression of two operons including cidABC and alsSD that display pro‐ and anti‐death functions, respectively.Expand
