The cause of mental retardation in one-third to one-half of all affected individuals is unknown. Microscopically detectable chromosomal abnormalities are the most frequently recognized cause, but gain or loss of chromosomal segments that are too small to be seen by conventional cytogenetic analysis has been found to be another important cause. Array-based(More)
Duplication of chromosomal segments and associated genes is thought to be a primary mechanism for generating evolutionary novelty. By comparative genome hybridization using a full-coverage (tiling) human BAC array with 79-kb resolution, we have identified 63 chromosomal segments, ranging in size from 0.65 to 1.3 Mb, that have inferred copy number increases(More)
The decoupled direct method (DDM) has been implemented in a three-dimensional (3D) air quality model in order to calculate first-order sensitivities with respect to emissions and initial and boundary concentrations. This required deriving new equations for the sensitivities from the equations of the hybrid chemistry solver and the nonlinear advection(More)
Using immunoprecipitation, mass spectrometry, and western blot analysis we investigated cytosolic protein interactions of the schizophrenia susceptibility gene dysbindin in mammalian cells. We identified novel interactions with members of the exocyst, dynactin and chaperonin containing T-complex protein complexes, and we confirmed interactions reported(More)
The Pleiades Promoter Project integrates genomewide bioinformatics with large-scale knockin mouse production and histological examination of expression patterns to develop MiniPromoters and related tools designed to study and treat the brain by directed gene expression. Genes with brain expression patterns of interest are subjected to bioinformatic analysis(More)
The ozone source apportionment technology (OSAT) estimates the contributions of different sources to ozone concentrations using a set of tracers for NOx, total VOCs, and ozone and an indicator that ascribes instantaneous ozone production to NOx or VOCs. These source contributions were compared to first-order sensitivities obtained by the decoupled direct(More)
Using bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) array comparative genome hybridization (aCGH) at approximately 1.4 Mbp resolution, we screened post-mortem brain DNA from bipolar disorder cases, schizophrenia cases and control individuals (n=35 each) for DNA copy-number aberrations. DNA copy number is a largely unexplored source of human genetic variation that(More)
We purified from activated T lymphocytes a novel, highly conserved, 116-kDa, intracellular protein that occurred at high levels in the large, dividing cells of the thymus, was up-regulated when resting T or B lymphocytes or hemopoietic progenitors were activated, and was down-regulated when a monocytic leukemia, M1, was induced to differentiate. Expression(More)
Two efficient methods to study relationships between particulate matter (PM) concentrations and emission sources are compared in the three-dimensional comprehensive air quality model with extensions (CAMx). Particulate source apportionment technology (PSAT) is a tagged species method that apportions concentrations of PM components to their respective(More)
