We hypothesized that hypoxia would activate epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase, leading to increased arginase expression and resulting in proliferation of human pulmonary microvascular endothelial cell (hPMVEC). To test this hypothesis, hPMVEC were incubated in normoxia (20% O(2), 5% CO(2)) or hypoxia (1% O(2), 5% CO(2)). Immunoblotting(More)
The Bacillus cereus sensu lato group contains ubiquitous facultative anaerobic soil-borne Gram-positive spore-forming bacilli. Molecular phylogeny and comparative genome sequencing have suggested that these organisms should be classified as a single species. While clonal in nature, there do not appear to be species-specific clonal lineages, excepting B.(More)
The genes that produce antibodies and the immune receptors expressed on lymphocytes are not germline encoded; rather, they are somatically generated in each developing lymphocyte by a process called V(D)J recombination, which assembles specific, independent gene segments into mature composite genes. The full set of composite genes in an individual at a(More)
dha Thakkar was chosen as President-Elect for 2016-7. There were 158 registrants and a total of 141 abstracts submitted (60 oral and 81 poster presentations). Keynote speakers were: Carolina Cruz-Neira, the Director of the Emerging Analytics Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (title: " The Pretty Picture: Experiencing Data Through(More)
SCB34 is a sequence type 131, highly invasive, multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli isolate that produced neonatal bacteremia. Whole-genome sequencing was performed using a 250-bp library on the Illumina MiSeq platform; 5,910,264 reads were assembled de novo using the A5 assembly pipeline. The total contig length was 5,227,742 bp; the RAST server was used(More)
