We determined the prevalence and characteristics of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) genes of Enterobacteriaceae in retail chicken meat and humans in the Netherlands. Raw meat samples were… Expand
MicroRNA-101, down-regulated in hepatocellular carcinoma, promotes apoptosis and suppresses tumorigenicity.
Although aberrant microRNA (miRNA) expressions have been observed in different types of cancer, their pathophysiologic role and their relevance to tumorigenesis are still largely unknown. In this… Expand
Radiative forcing of the direct aerosol effect from AeroCom Phase II simulations
We report on the AeroCom Phase II direct aerosol effect (DAE) experiment where 16 detailed global aerosol models have been used to simulate the changes in the aerosol distribution over the industrial… Expand
CDKL5, a Protein Associated with Rett Syndrome, Regulates Neuronal Morphogenesis via Rac1 Signaling
Mutations in cyclin-dependent kinase-like 5 (CDKL5), also known as serine/threonine kinase 9 (STK9), have been identified in patients with Rett syndrome (RTT) and X-linked infantile spasm. However,… Expand
Two Abundant Bioaccumulated Halogenated Compounds Are Natural Products
Methoxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (MeO-PBDEs) have been found bioaccumulated in the tissues of a variety of aquatic animals and at concentrations comparable to those of anthropogenic… Expand

Cochlear implants provide users with limited spectral and temporal information. In this study, the amount of spectral and temporal information was systematically varied through simulations of… Expand
The Basic Helix-Loop-Helix Transcription Factor MYC2 Directly Represses PLETHORA Expression during Jasmonate-Mediated Modulation of the Root Stem Cell Niche in Arabidopsis[W][OA]
This study investigates the mechanisms underlying jasmonate-induced inhibition of primary root growth. Jasmonate inhibits the expression of two AP2-domain transcription factors, PLETHORA1 and 2, in a… Expand
The prevalence of connexin 26 (GJB2) mutations in the Chinese population
Abstract. Mutations in GJB2, encoding gap junction beta 2 protein (connexin 26), are responsible for the commonest form of non-syndromic recessive deafness in many populations. It has been reported… Expand
Abrupt Tropical Vegetation Response to Rapid Climate Changes
Identifying leads and lags between high- and low-latitude abrupt climate shifts is needed to understand where and how such events were triggered. Vascular plant biomarkers preserved in Cariaco basin… Expand
Reduction in myocardial infarct size by postconditioning in patients after percutaneous coronary intervention.
BACKGROUND Postconditioning has been shown to reduce infarct size during reperfusion (< 72 hours). However, it is unknown whether the infarct size reduction with postconditioning is a long-term… Expand
