A role for Lyn kinase as a positive regulator of immunoglobulin (Ig)E-dependent allergy has long been accepted. Contrary to this belief, Lyn kinase was found to have an important role as a negative regulator of the allergic response. This became apparent from the hyperresponsive degranulation of lyn-/- bone marrow-derived mast cells, which is driven by(More)
In Experiment 1 neither hearing nor prelingually deaf signing adolescents showed marked lateralization for lexical decision but, unlike the hearing, the deaf were not impaired by the introduction of pseudohomophones. In Experiment 2 semantic categorization produced a left hemisphere advantage in the hearing for words but not pictures whereas in the deaf(More)

Mouse mast cell development and survival are largely controlled by the cytokines IL-3 and stem cell factor (SCF). We have found that IL-3 stimulation of bone marrow cells induces the production of TNF via a PI3K- and MAPK kinase/ERK-dependent pathway. Specifically, Mac-1-positive cells were responsible for TNF production, which peaked on days 7-10 of(More)
We report the first use of the Integra Bilayer Matrix Wound Dressing (Integra LifeSciences Corp), a collagen sheet with glycosaminoglycans and a silicone layer, in an innovative reconstruction approach to devastating traumatic tissue loss in the periocular area. A 36-year-old woman was involved in a motor vehicle crash with a resultant large defect from the(More)
