An African origin for the intimate association between humans and Helicobacter pylori
Infection of the stomach by Helicobacter pylori is ubiquitous among humans. However, although H. pylori strains from different geographic areas are associated with clear phylogeographicExpand

A geographically explicit genetic model of worldwide human-settlement history.
Currently available genetic and archaeological evidence is generally interpreted as supportive of a recent single origin of modern humans in East Africa. However, this is where the near consensus onExpand

Cloning and molecular analyses of the Arabidopsis thaliana chloride channel gene family
Abstract The Arabidopsis chloride channels (CLC) family includes seven members, AtCLCa–g, that can be divided into two distinct subclasses. Here we show the developmental and tissue-specificExpand

Population genetics of complex life-cycle parasites: an illustration with trematodes.
Accurate inferences on population genetics data require a sound underlying theoretical null model. Organisms alternating sexual and asexual reproduction during their life-cycle have been largelyExpand

Generation of endoderm‐derived human induced pluripotent stem cells from primary hepatocytes
Recent advances in induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell research have significantly changed our perspective on regenerative medicine. Patient‐specific iPS cells have been derived not only for diseaseExpand

NOTCH3 Expression Is Induced in Mural Cells Through an Autoregulatory Loop That Requires Endothelial-Expressed JAGGED1
Endothelial cells and mural cells (smooth muscle cells, pericytes, or fibroblasts) are known to communicate with one another. Their interactions not only serve to support fully functional bloodExpand

Canine Distemper Outbreak in Rhesus Monkeys, China
Since 2006, canine distemper outbreaks have occurred in rhesus monkeys at a breeding farm in Guangxi, People’s Republic of China. Approximately 10,000 animals were infected (25%–60% diseaseExpand
