MOTIVATION Assessment of protein subcellular location is crucial to proteomics efforts since localization information provides a context for a protein's sequence, structure, and function. The work described below is the first to address the subcellular localization of proteins in a quantitative, comprehensive manner. RESULTS Images for ten different(More)
Determination of the functions of all expressed proteins represents one of the major upcoming challenges in computational molecular biology. Since subcellular location plays a crucial role in protein function, the availability of systems that can predict location from sequence or high-throughput systems that determine location experimentally will be(More)
The new field of location proteomics seeks to provide a comprehensive, objective characterization of the subcellular locations of all proteins expressed in a given cell type. Previous work has demonstrated that automated classifiers can recognize the patterns of all major subcellular organelles and structures in fluorescence microscope images with high(More)
— We describe a method of classifying cellular protein localization patterns based on their appearance in fluorescence light microscope images. Images depicting cellular protein localization were obtained using immunoflu-orescence microscopy. After collection, the images were processed and subject to feature extraction. Zernike moments were calculated for(More)
BACKGROUND The definitive diagnosis of glaucoma is currently based on congruent damage to both optic nerve structure and function. Given widespread quantitative assessment of both structure (imaging) and function (automated perimetry) in glaucoma, it should be possible to combine these quantitative data to diagnose disease. We have therefore defined and(More)
Purpose. To compare optic disc topography performed by confocal laser ophthalmoscopy in eyes with nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AAION), and open-angle glaucoma (OAG), adjusting for the amount of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) loss, as measured by nerve fiber layer (NFL) thickness and(More)
PURPOSE To assess the relationship between the pupillary light reflex (PLR) and visual field (VF) mean deviation (MD) and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness. METHODS A total of 148 patients with glaucoma (mean age 67 ± 11, 49% female) and 71 controls (mean age 60 ± 10, 69% female) were included in this study. Using a pupillometer, we recorded and(More)
PURPOSE To estimate the prevalence of glaucoma in the US population based on optic nerve head photography, to estimate the prevalence of glaucoma awareness, and to identify demographic and ocular risk factors for being unaware of having glaucoma. METHODS The study included 5746 men and women 40 years of age and older participating in the National Health(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to characterize the extent to which central visual field (VF) loss reflects peripheral VF loss in patients with varying degrees of glaucoma severity. METHODS A total of 232 patients with glaucoma or suspect glaucoma completed static central VF testing using the 24-2 pattern and peripheral VF testing using the(More)
PURPOSE To improve the neurological hemifield test (NHT) using visual field data from both eyes to detect and classify visual field loss caused by chiasmal or postchiasmal lesions. METHODS Visual field and clinical data for 633 patients were divided into a training set (474 cases) and a validation set (159 cases). Each set had equal numbers of(More)
