The crucifer family includes self-incompatible genera, such as Brassica, and self-fertile genera, such as Arabidopsis. To gain insight into mechanisms underlying the evolution of mating systems in this family, we used a selective comparative mapping approach between Brassica campestris plants homozygous for the S8 haplotype and Arabidopsis. Starting with(More)
BACKGROUND Adhesion molecules on arterial endothelium have been implicated in spontaneous atherosclerosis and transplant coronary artery disease (CAD). We studied whether elevated serum-soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) during the immediate posttransplant period was a risk factor for CAD, posttransplant ischemic events, or cardiac graft(More)
BACKGROUND Osteoporosis is known to complicate outcomes after lung transplantation (Tx). METHODS To determine the efficacy of bisphosphonate therapy combined with the osteogenic stimulus of mechanical loading, 30 lung transplant recipients (LTRs) were randomly assigned either to alendronate (10 mg/day; n = 10), alendronate (10 mg/day) + resistance(More)
