Disruption of NMDAR-dependent burst firing by dopamine neurons provides selective assessment of phasic dopamine-dependent behavior
Midbrain dopamine (DA) neurons fire in 2 characteristic modes, tonic and phasic, which are thought to modulate distinct aspects of behavior. However, the inability to selectively disrupt theseExpand

RAS mutations in cutaneous squamous-cell carcinomas in patients treated with BRAF inhibitors.
BACKGROUND Cutaneous squamous-cell carcinomas and keratoacanthomas are common findings in patients treated with BRAF inhibitors. METHODS We performed a molecular analysis to identify oncogenicExpand

Papillary Microcarcinoma of the Thyroid: Predicting Factors of Lateral Neck Node Metastasis
BackgroundPreoperative prediction of lateral lymph node metastasis (LNM) is important to prevent recurrence; however, there are few published data in predicting factors of lateral LNM before surgery.Expand

A peroxidase contributes to ROS production during Arabidopsis root response to potassium deficiency.
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) play an important role in root responses to potassium deprivation by regulating the expression of the high-affinity K(+) transporter gene AtHAK5 and other genes.Expand

Resistance to selective BRAF inhibition can be mediated by modest upstream pathway activation.
A high percentage of patients with BRAF(V600E) mutant melanomas respond to the selective RAF inhibitor vemurafenib (RG7204, PLX4032) but resistance eventually emerges. To better understand theExpand

A specific and sensitive method for detection of hypochlorous acid for the imaging of microbe-induced HOCl production.
A specific and sensitive fluorescence-based method was developed for the imaging of microbe-induced HOCl production. Furthermore, we demonstrate dual oxidase (DUOX)-mediated HOCl generation in theExpand
