BACKGROUND The TGF-beta/SMAD pathway is part of a broader signaling network in which crosstalk between pathways occurs. While the molecular mechanisms of TGF-beta/SMAD signaling pathway have been studied in detail, the global networks downstream of SMAD remain largely unknown. The regulatory effect of SMAD complex likely depends on transcriptional modules,(More)
Ozone (O(3)) is an important component of air pollution and a potent oxidant of biomolecules. To address the hypothesis that elevated ambient O(3) can induce cytogenetic damage in healthy people, we collected buccal cells from two groups of students (N = 126) from University of California, Berkeley, in the spring and again in the fall. One group spent their(More)
BACKGROUND Meiotically heritable epimutations affecting transgene expression are not well understood, even and in particular in the plant model species, Arabidopsis thaliana. The Arabidopsis trans-silencer locus, C73, which encodes a fusion protein between the repressor of photomorphogenesis, COP1, and green fluorescent protein (GFP-COP1), heritably(More)
