Circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) contribute to postnatal neovascularization. We identified the cytochrome P450 4A/F-20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (CYP4A/F-20-HETE) system as a novel regulator of EPC functions associated with angiogenesis in vitro. Here, we explored cellular mechanisms by which 20-HETE regulates EPC angiogenic functions and(More)
The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) is an international initiative that means to advise decision makers on the impact of development on environmental setting and human well being. The MA is a multi-scale assessment consisting of interlinked assessments undertaken at local, national, regional and global scales. The sub-global assessments will directly(More)
Cloud computing paradigm has been recognized recently as key enabling efficient and effective technological services that will reshape the delivery and support of the educational services. In this paper, we review the literature on cloud computing adoption by Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) that were published during the period 2009 - 2014. The(More)
This paper examines the effect of increased local supply of schooling on intergenerational mobility in education in Jordan. We use a unique data set that links individual data on own schooling and parents' schooling for adults, from a household survey, with the supply of schooling in the district of birth, from Ministry of Education data. We identify the(More)
Correlation between religion and socioeconomic outcomes is observed in various contexts. In the Middle East, local non-Muslims are, on average, better off than the Muslim majority. I trace the origins of the phenomenon in Egypt to a historical process of self-selection across religions (based on socioeconomic status) that was motivated by an economic(More)
Segregating F4 families from the cross between drought sensitive (Yecora Rojo) and drought tolerant (Pavon 76) genotypes were made to identify SSR markers linked to leaf chlorophyll content, flag leaf senescence and cell membrane stability traits in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) under water-stressed condition and to map quantitative trait locus (QTL) for the(More)
The proposed dissertation project contributes to the growing literature on the impact of religion on economic outcomes. It explores the differences across religious groups with respect to educational and occupational outcomes employing census data from Egypt, both individual-level data (1848-1868) and village/quarter-level data (1897-1927). The digitization(More)
