In this report, in situ hybridization with whole chromosome painting probes was used to paint radiation-induced micronuclei (MN) in three lymphoblastoid cells lines to investigate the frequency of radiation-induced MN. The results obtained for four different chromosomes showed that there was a significant deviation of the numbers of signal-positive MN from(More)
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress triggers a homeostatic cellular response in mammalian cells to ensure efficient folding, sorting, and processing of client proteins. In lytic-permissive lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs), pulse exposure to the chemical ER-stress inducer thapsigargin (TG) followed by recovery resulted in the activation of the EBV(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammation is integral to the injury response. The inflammatory response is essential to the host defense against infection and also to tissue regeneration and repair. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are critical activators of the innate immune response and present attractive therapeutic targets for inflammation-modulated tissue regeneration. The(More)
BACKGROUND Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) has been implicated in inflammation-induced bone destruction in various chronic bone diseases; however, its direct influence on bone healing is not well understood. The authors' previous study showed accelerated bone healing with higher osteoclastogenesis gene expression in toll-like receptor 4 knockout mice (TLR4).(More)
Craniosynostosis (CS) has a prevalence of approximately 1 in every 2000 live births and is characterized by the premature fusion of one or more cranial sutures. Failure to maintain the cell lineage boundary at the coronal suture is thought to be involved in the pathology of some forms of CS. The Ephrin family of receptor tyrosine kinases consists of(More)
Next generation sequencing technologies have accelerated the rate at which whole genome sequencing (WGS) data is acquired. The sheer volume of data generated by WGS requires computational annotation to define potential coding regions and chromosomal features. The accuracy of genomic annotation is thus limited by the power of the computational algorithm and(More)

In these experiments, the cytokinesis-block technique was used to measure the spontaneous and radiation-induced micronucleus frequencies in lymphoblastoid cell lines from normal individuals and individuals with radiation-sensitive syndromes. The radiation-induced micronucleus frequencies were measured at different harvest times to investigate the optimum(More)
