The human solute carrier SLC41A1 belongs to a novel eukaryotic subfamily with homology to prokaryotic MgtE Mg2+ transporters.
We report here the first identification and structural characterization of a eukaryotic protein with homology to the bacterial MgtE family of potential Mg(2+) transporters. This human protein,Expand

The Cutest Little Baby Face
We used computer image manipulation to develop a test of perception of subtle gradations in cuteness between infant faces. We found that young women (19–26 years old) were more sensitive toExpand

Vitamin A potentiates CpG-mediated memory B-cell proliferation and differentiation: involvement of early activation of p38MAPK.
Foreign CpG-DNA from viruses and bacteria can activate memory B cells through binding to toll-like receptor 9, and this pathway has been hypothesized to be involved in the continuous activation ofExpand

Identification of a novel centrosome/microtubule-associated coiled-coil protein involved in cell-cycle progression and spindle organization
Here we describe the identification of a novel vertebrate-specific centrosome/spindle pole-associated protein (CSPP) involved in cell-cycle regulation. The protein is predicted to have a tripartiteExpand

CSPP and CSPP‐L associate with centrosomes and microtubules and differently affect microtubule organization
We recently described the identification of a centrosome/spindle pole associated protein, CSPP, involved in cell cycle progression. Here we report a CSPP isoform denoted CSPP‐L, with a 294 aminoExpand

Signaling through ephrin‐A ligand leads to activation of Src‐family kinases, Akt phosphorylation, and inhibition of antigen receptor‐induced apoptosis
Eph receptor tyrosine kinases and ephrins play important roles in diverse biological processes such as migration, adhesion, and angiogenesis. Forward and reverse signaling has been reported inExpand

Ephrin‐B2 is a candidate ligand for the Eph receptor, EphB6
No ligand has hitherto been designated for the Eph receptor tyrosine kinase family member, EphB6. Here, expression of an EphB6 ligand in the pro‐B leukemic cell line, Reh, is demonstrated by bindingExpand

Characterization of a novel immunoglobulin-like domain containing receptor.
A not yet described gene was identified in a lymphoma specific subtraction strategy. Three splice variants of this gene denoted immunoglobulin-like domain containing receptor 1 (ILDR1) wereExpand

Ephrin‐A1 stimulates migration of CD8+CCR7+ T lymphocytes
We have previously demonstrated that binding of ephrin‐A1 to Eph receptors on human CD4+ T cells stimulates migration. Here, we show that a distinct population of CD8+ T lymphocytes, expressing theExpand

Characterization of the FAM110 gene family.
We have previously characterized the centrosome/spindle pole-associated protein (CSPP) involved in cell cycle progression. The open reading frame C20orf55 was identified in a yeast two-hybrid screenExpand
