KAP1/TIF1beta is proposed to be a universal corepressor protein for the KRAB zinc finger protein (KRAB-zfp) superfamily of transcriptional repressors. To characterize the role of KAP1 and KAP1-interacting proteins in transcriptional repression, we investigated the regulation of stably integrated reporter transgenes by hormone-responsive KRAB and KAP1(More)
BACKGROUND Meta-analyses were conducted to characterize patterns of mutation incidence in non small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). DESIGN Nine genes with the most complete published mutation coincidence data were evaluated. One meta-analysis generated a 'mutMap' to visually represent mutation coincidence by ethnicity (Western/Asian) and histology(More)
Several recent reports suggest that stearoyl-CoA desaturase 1 (SCD1), the rate-limiting enzyme in monounsaturated fatty acid synthesis, plays an important role in regulating lipid homeostasis and lipid oxidation in metabolically active tissues. As several manifestations of type 2 diabetes and related metabolic disorders are associated with alterations in(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we investigated the capacity of pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) to modulate the recruitment and the differentiation of monocytes/macrophages both in vitro and in human prostate. METHODS Using Boyden chambers, we assessed PEDF effect on the migration of monocytes and chemically activated RAW 264.7 macrophages. Normal,(More)
BACKGROUND According to the Association of American Medical Colleges and the Institute of Medicine, promoting diversity in the health care workforce is a national priority. The under-representation of minorities in health care contributes significantly to the problem of health disparities currently facing racial and ethnic minority groups in the United(More)
Leiomyosarcomas are a relatively rare tumor entity encountered within the urinary bladder. There are just over 100 cases reported in the medical literature. Herein, we describe a case of leiomyosarcoma presenting initially as a urinary tract infection with lower abdominal pain. A life threatening episode of gross hematuria guided to the final diagnosis and(More)
Women account for a small fraction of the prison and jail population nationwide (6.4% and 10.6% respectively);' yet incarcerated women are disproportionately affected by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). At the end of 1995, 14.7% of female state prison inmates in the Northeast United States were known to be HIV seropositive, compared to 7.5% of male state(More)
