Complexity and pitfalls of mass spectrometry-based targeted metabolomics in brain research.
Current quantitative metabolomic research in brain tissue is challenged by several analytical issues. To compare data of metabolite pattern, ratios of individual metabolite concentrations andExpand

Transcriptional regulation of ADAMTS13.
The metalloproteinase ADAMTS13 cleaves VWF multimers instantaneously when they are released from endothelial cells. Absent or manifestly diminished proteolytic activity of ADAMTS13 results in theExpand

Oxidized Phospholipids in Minimally Modified Low Density Lipoprotein Induce Apoptotic Signaling via Activation of Acid Sphingomyelinase in Arterial Smooth Muscle Cells*
Oxidized phospholipids, including 1-palmitoyl-2-glutaroyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (PGPC) and 1-palmitoyl-2-(5-oxovaleroyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POVPC), typically present in minimallyExpand

Platelet-derived microvesicles induce differential gene expression in monocytic cells: A DNA microarray study
Platelet-derived microvesicles (PMV) that are shed from the plasma membrane of activated platelets, expose various platelet-type antigens on their surface and are able to adhere to other blood cellsExpand

Preprocessing of gene expression data by optimally robust estimators
TLDR
We describe how optimally robust radius-minimax estimators, i.e. estimators that minimize an asymptotic maximum risk on shrinking neighborhoods about an ideal model, can be used for the aggregation of multiple raw signal intensities to one expression value for Affymetrix and Illumina data. Expand

A smartphone readout system for gold nanoparticle-based lateral flow assays: application to monitoring of digoxigenin
AbstractFor modern approaches in precision medicine, fast and easy-to-use point-of-care diagnostics (POCs) are essential. Digoxin was chosen as an example of a drug requiring close monitoring.Expand

Ceramide induces aSMase expression: implications for oxLDL-induced apoptosis
Sphingomyelinase (SMase) stimulation and subsequent ceramide generation are suggested to be involved in signal transduction of stress-induced apoptosis. We now show that apoptosis of humanExpand

HepG2 human hepatoma cells express multiple cytokine genes.
Although cytokines are known to be involved in the regulation of a variety of hepatocellular functions, hepatocytes themselves are generally considered only targets but not producers of theseExpand
