Contact network models have become increasingly common in epidemiology, but we lack a flexible programming framework for the generation and analysis of epidemiological contact networks and for the simulation of disease transmission through such networks. Here we present EpiFire, an applications programming interface and graphical user interface implemented(More)
SUMMARY The nuclear factor kB (NF-kB) subunits RelA, RelB, cRel, p50, and p52 are each critical for B cell development and function. To systematically characterize their responses to canonical and noncanonical NF-kB pathway activity, we performed chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by high-throughput DNA sequencing (ChIP-seq) analysis in lymphoblas-toid(More)
The sulfatase family involves a group of enzymes with a large degree of similarity. Until now, sixteen human sulfatases have been identified, most of them found in lysosomes. Human deficiency of sulfatases generates various genetic disorders characterized by abnormal accumulation of sulfated intermediate compounds. Mucopolysaccharidosis type II is(More)
Mechanical stimuli play a significant role in the process of long bone development as evidenced by clinical observations and in vivo studies. Up to now approaches to understand stimuli characteristics have been limited to the first stages of epiphyseal development. Furthermore, growth plate mechanical behavior has not been widely studied. In order to better(More)
Classical presentation of Histoplasma infection includes fever and respiratory symptoms. Opportunistic microorganisms must be suspected on immunocompromised patients who develop bizarre symptoms. We present a case of a female patient with rheumatoid arthritis who received treatment with Infliximab during one and a half year; she developed granulomatous(More)
