Increased respiratory disease and daily mortality rates are associated with higher levels of fine particulate air pollutants. We examined the possibility that deposition of even inert particles to previously injured lungs may accentuate pulmonary damage by investigating how the lung handles small carbon particles delivered during acute injury or during(More)
The Deleted in liver cancer one (Dlc1) tumor suppressor gene encodes a RhoGTPase activating protein (RhoGAP). The Dlc1 gene has multiple transcriptional isoforms and we have previously established a mouse strain containing a gene trap (gt) insertion, which specifically reduces the expression of the 6.1 kb isoform (isoform 2). This gene trapped allele when(More)
