Male mice were given a single injection of either adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) or lysine vasopressin immediately after a defeat in an encounter with an aggressive male mouse. The defeated mice were tested for submissiveness at either 24 hours, 48 hours, or 7 days after the initial encounter. Both hormone treatments increased future submissiveness,(More)
Introducing tumor-derived cells into normal mammary stem cell niches at a sufficiently high ratio of normal to tumorous cells causes those tumor cells to undergo a change to normal mammary phenotype and yield normal mammary progeny. This phenomenon has been termed cancer cell redirection. We have developed an in vitro model that mimics in vivo redirection(More)
A gene co-expression network (GCN) describes associations between genes and points to genetic coordination of biochemical pathways. However, genetic correlations in a GCN are only detectable if they are present in the sampled conditions. With the increasing quantity of gene expression samples available in public repositories, there is greater potential for(More)
