Glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored high-density lipoprotein-binding protein 1 plays a critical role in the lipolytic processing of chylomicrons.
The triglycerides in chylomicrons are hydrolyzed by lipoprotein lipase (LpL) along the luminal surface of the capillaries. However, the endothelial cell molecule that facilitates chylomicronExpand

The magnitude of hedgehog signaling activity defines skin tumor phenotype
Gain‐of‐function mutations in SMO have been implicated in constitutive activation of the hedgehog signaling pathway in human basal cell carcinomas (BCCs). We used a truncated keratin 5 (ΔK5) promoterExpand

Decreased food intake does not completely account for adiposity reduction after ob protein infusion.
The effects of recombinantly produced ob protein were compared to those of food restriction in normal lean and genetically obese mice. Ob protein infusion into ob/ob mice resulted in large decreasesExpand

The IL-27 Receptor (WSX-1) Is an Inhibitor of Innate and Adaptive Elements of Type 2 Immunity1
Although previous studies have investigated the role of IL-27/WSX-1 interactions in the regulation of Th1 responses, little is known about their role in regulating Th2-type responses. StudiesExpand

GFR alpha-4 and the tyrosine kinase Ret form a functional receptor complex for persephin.
Glial-cell-line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), neurturin and persephin are structurally related, secreted proteins that are widely expressed in the nervous system and other tissues and promoteExpand
