In mammalian females, genes on one X are largely silenced by X-chromosome inactivation (XCI), although some "escape" XCI and are expressed from both Xs. Escapees can closely juxtapose X-inactivated genes and provide a tractable model for assessing boundary function at epigenetically regulated loci. To delimit sequences at an XCI boundary, we examined female(More)
Bisphenol A (BPA), a carbon-based synthetic compound, exhibits hormone-like properties and is present ubiquitously in the environment and in human tissues due to its widespread use and biological accumulation. BPA can mimic estrogen to interact with estrogen receptors α and β, leading to changes in cell proliferation, apoptosis, or migration and thereby,(More)
Untreated shale oil, shale oil treated with HCl aqueous solution and shale oil treated with HCl and fur-fural were used to do comparative experiments in fixed bed reactors. Nitrogen compounds and condensed aromatics extracted by HCl and furfural were characterized by elec-trospray ionization Fourier transform cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry and gas(More)
