Activated T cells engage aerobic glycolysis and anabolic metabolism for growth, proliferation, and effector functions. We propose that a glucose-poor tumor microenvironment limits aerobic glycolysis in tumor-infiltrating T cells, which suppresses tumoricidal effector functions. We discovered a new role for the glycolytic metabolite phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP)(More)
Thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) modulate various physiological functions in many organ systems. The TR alpha and TR beta isoforms are products of 2 distinct genes, and the beta 1 and beta 2 isoforms are splice variants of the same gene. Whereas TR alpha 1 and TR beta 1 are widely expressed, expression of the TR beta 2 isoform is mainly limited to the(More)
In this paper, we present a spatial logic which can be used to reason about topological and spatial relationships among objects in spatial databases. The main advantages of such a formalism are its rigor-ousness, clear semantics and sound inference mechanism. We also show how the formalism can be extended to include orientation and metrical information.(More)
UNLABELLED Diabetes is associated with high rates of cardiovascular disease and sudden death. Therefore, dissecting specific mechanisms, such as the effects of impaired insulin signaling on cardiac electrophysiology may lead to better diagnosis and treatment. Lack of insulin receptors in mouse myocytes has been shown to reduce repolarizing potassium(More)
