Understanding how vertebrates respond to hypoxia can have important clinical implications. Fish have evolved the ability to survive long exposure to low oxygen levels. However, little is known about the specific changes in gene expression that result from hypoxia. In this study we used a zebrafish cDNA microarray to examine the expression of >4,500 genes in(More)
Chronic Chagas' disease cardiomyopathy is a leading cause of congestive heart failure in Latin America, affecting more than 3 million people. Chagas' cardiomyopathy is more aggressive than other cardiomyopathies, but little is known of the molecular mechanisms responsible for its severity. We characterized gene expression profiles of human Chagas'(More)
Plasma lipid levels have been known to be risk factors for atherosclerosis for decades, and in recent years it has become accepted that inflammation is a crucial event in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. In this study, we investigated the relationship between plasma lipids and leukocytes by profiling and analyzing leukocyte gene expression in response(More)
Vertebrate embryogenesis is a complex process controlled by a transcriptional hierarchy that coordinates the action of thousands of genes. To identify and analyze the expression patterns of these genes, we constructed a zebrafish cDNA microarray containing 4512 unique genes identified from zebrafish embryonic heart, adult hearts, and skeletal muscle cDNA(More)
