Angiogenesis is an important component of organogenesis and wound repair and occurs during the pathology of oncogenesis, atherogenesis, and other disease processes. Thus, it is important to understand the physiological mechanisms that control neovascularization, especially with methods that permit the molecular dissection of the phenomenon in vivo.(More)
In vivo, bromide (Br(-)), nitrite (NO(2)(-)), and thiocyanate (SCN(-)) compete for oxidation by eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) and H(2)O(2), yielding, respectively, HOBr, NO(2)., and HOSCN. We have recently shown that SCN(-) is the strongly preferred substrate for EPO in vivo and that HOSCN, in contrast with other EPO-generated oxidants and HOCl, is a(More)
Chemical and dermatotoxicological investigations of the natural and processed resin of the Mexican rubber plant, guayule (Parthenium argentatum), has established the presence of a sesquiterpene cinnamic acid ester (guayulin A) that is a potent elicitor of allergic contact dermatitis in experimental animals. The guayule contact allergen is comparable to the(More)
In a wireless sensor network, the sensors collect measurements from their local environments and build a model from those measurements in order to draw conclusions. Distributed model consensus allows sensors to make inferences about the global state of the deployment environment, by sharing models among the sensors, rather than raw data. In this paper, we(More)
The study of magnetic phase transitions in insulating molecular solids provides new insights into mechanisms of magnetic coupling in the solid state and into critical phenomena associated with these transitions. Only a few such materials are known to display cooperative magnetic properties. The use of high-spin molecular components would enhance(More)
