The three budding yeast CLN genes appear to be functionally redundant for cell cycle Start: any single CLN gene is sufficient to promote Start, while the cln1 cln2 cln3 triple mutant is Start defective and inviable. Both quantitative and apparently qualitative differences between CLN genes have been reported, but available data do not in general allow(More)
Williams syndrome is a genetic disorder resulting in a variety of medical and developmental features, one of which is a frequent outward presentation of substantial happiness. In this paper we describe the unique expression of happiness in people with Williams syndrome, with several anecdotes and a frame by frame conversational analysis. We then discuss(More)
Eukaryotic chromatin is composed of DNA and protein components-core histones-that act to compactly pack the DNA into nucleosomes, the fundamental building blocks of chromatin. These nucleosomes are connected to adjacent nucleosomes by linker histones. Nucleosomes are highly dynamic and, through various core histone post-translational modifications and(More)
Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) of the breast typically presents with clinical biomarkers consistent with a favorable response to endocrine therapies, and over 90 % of ILC cases express the estrogen receptor (ER). However, a subset of ILC cases may be resistant to endocrine therapies, suggesting that ER biology is unique in ILC. Using ILC cell lines, we(More)
