The distributed nature of biological knowledge poses a major challenge to the interpretation of genome-scale datasets, including those derived from microarray and proteomic studies. This report describes DAVID, a web-accessible program that integrates functional genomic annotations with intuitive graphical summaries. Lists of gene or protein identifiers are(More)
EASE is a customizable software application for rapid biological interpretation of gene lists that result from the analysis of microarray, proteomics, SAGE, and other high-throughput genomic data. The biological themes returned by EASE recapitulate manually determined themes in previously published gene lists and are robust to varying methods of(More)
Molecular experiments using multiplex strategies such as cDNA microarrays or proteomic approaches generate large datasets requiring biological interpretation. Text based data mining tools have recently been developed to query large biological datasets of this type of data. PubMatrix is a web-based tool that allows simple text based mining of the NCBI(More)
Certain HIV-encoded proteins modify host-cell gene expression in a manner that facilitates viral replication. These activities may contribute to low-level viral replication in nonproliferating cells. Through the use of oligonucleotide microarrays and high-throughput Western blotting we demonstrate that one of these proteins, gp120, induces the expression of(More)
PURPOSE Age-related cataract is a multi-factorial disease with a poorly understood etiology. Numerous studies provide evidence that the human eye lens has evolved specific regulatory and protective systems to ameliorate lens damage associated with cataract. Other studies suggest that the presence of cataract is associated with the altered expression of(More)
HIV infection leads to decreases in the number of CD4 T lymphocytes and an increased risk for opportunistic infections and neoplasms. The administration of intermittent cycles of IL-2 to HIV-infected patients can lead to profound increases (often greater than 100%) in CD4 cell number and percentage. Using in vivo labeling with 2H-glucose and BrdU, we have(More)
We examined whether telomere lengths of peripheral blood mononuclear cells are associated with immunoglobulin gene usage in 21 familial chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients. Subjects with unmutated V genes tended to have shorter telomeres than those with somatic mutations, especially after adjusting for age. Unlike V(H) mutation status, telomere(More)
Measurement of the proliferation of lymphocytes and other high-turnover cell populations in vivo can be accomplished through the incorporation of an isotopically labeled DNA precursor into actively dividing cells and the subsequent determination of the isotope enrichment in the isolated genomic DNA from selected cell populations. Two published gas(More)
The impact of male presence or absence on the timing of the preovulatory LH surge and estrus was studied in 3 experimental groups (n = 6/group) of Eld's deer hinds pretreated with intravaginal progesterone-releasing devices (CIDR-type G) as follows: Group 1 = indirect male contact barn; Group 2 = direct male contact barn; and Group 3 = male isolation barn.(More)
