BACKGROUND Dexamethasone is widely used for pulmonary exacerbation in patients with cystic fibrosis, however, not much is known about the effects of glucocorticoids on the wild-type cystic fibrosis channel transmembrane regulator (CFTR). Our aim was to determine the effects of dexamethasone treatment on wild-type CFTR expression. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
The incidence of cardiovascular diseases is ten-times higher in males than females, although the biological basis for this gender disparity is not known. However, based on the fact that antiplatelet drugs are the mainstay for prevention and therapy, we hypothesized that the signaling proteomes in platelets from normal male donors might be more activated(More)
American Association of Tissue Banks' (AATB) guidance documents, including this one, do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities. Instead, these guidelines describe the AATB's current thinking on this topic. They are intended solely for the use of AATB accredited tissue banks in conjunction with the AATB's Standards for Tissue Banking. They should(More)
Dent disease has multiple defects attributed to proximal tubule malfunction including low-molecular-weight proteinuria, aminoaciduria, phosphaturia, and glycosuria. To understand the changes in kidney function of the Clc5 chloride/proton exchanger gene knockout mouse model of Dent disease, we examined gene expression profiles from proximal S1 and S2 tubules(More)
One unresolved issue in Cystic Fibrosis research is how functional loss of CFTR, a protein involved in chloride transport, results in chronic lung inflammation. Large scale experiments investigating protein or gene expression changes due to altered trafficking of the most common disease causing CFTR mutation (ΔF508) have produced long lists of changes with(More)
