Research into the biological role of the Ca(2+)-releasing second messenger NAADP (nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate) has been hampered by a lack of chemical probes. To find new chemical probes for exploring NAADP signaling, we turned to virtual screening, which can evaluate millions of molecules rapidly and inexpensively. We used NAADP as the… (More)
Human influenza pandemics commonly arise by genetic reassortment between human and avian viruses in pigs. Yet global developments in aquaculture--the so-called 'Blue Revolution'--will mean increased co-location of people, ducks and pigs.
The clinical and pathologic features of patients with cystic fibrosis are summarized, and generalized genotype or phenotype correlations are discussed in this article. Incorporation of modern molecular biologic techniques into a rapid, cost-efficient, and specific diagnostic laboratory test is outlined. The protocol for the multiplex polymerase chain… (More)
