The gene responsible for the pivotal B cell growth factor, stromal derived factor-1 (SDF-1), has recently been shown to contain a single nucleotide polymorphism G > A at position 801 which leads to higher SDF-1 secretion. This(More)

When biased in one direction there is hysteresis and in the opposite direction there is a lack of hysteresis. We demonstrate that this apparent lack is actually hysteresis on a much faster time-scale. We further demonstrate that this form of asymmetric(More)
