The core promoter is the ultimate target of the vast network of regulatory factors that contribute to the initiation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Here we describe the MTE (motif ten element), a new core promoter element that appears to be conserved from Drosophila to humans. The MTE promotes transcription by RNA polymerase II when it is located(More)
Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes that transmit Plasmodium falciparum malaria use a series of olfactory cues present in human sweat to locate their hosts for a blood meal. Recognition of these odor cues occurs through the interplay of odorant receptors and odorant-binding proteins (OBPs) that bind to odorant molecules and transport and present them to the(More)
BACKGROUND The consequences of surgical site infections can be severe and range from short-term delays in discharge from the hospital to life-threatening infections such as mediastinitis. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effectiveness of silver-impregnated dressings in decreasing surgical site infections in children after cardiac surgery. METHODS A(More)
