Stroke and Alzheimer's disease (AD) are major age-related neurodegenerative diseases that may worsen the prognosis of each other. Our study was designed to delineate the prostaglandin E(2) EP1 receptor role in AD and in the setting of cerebral ischemia. Genetic deletion of the prostaglandin EP1 receptor significantly attenuated the more severe neuronal(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) is responsible for death of nearly two million people in the world annually. Upon infection, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) causes formation of granuloma where the pathogen goes into dormant state and can live for decades before resuscitation to develop active disease when the immune system of the host is weakened and/or suppressed. In(More)
A ‘‘book-embedding’’ of a graph G comprises embedding the graph’s nodes along the spine of a book and embedding the edges on the pages so that the edges embedded on the same page do not intersect. This is also referred to as the page model. The ‘‘pagenumber’’ of a graph is the thickness of the smallest (in number of pages) book into which G can be embedded.(More)
Macrophage polarization plays a critical role in tissue homeostasis, disease pathogenesis, and inflammation and its resolution. IL-4-induced macrophage polarization involves induction of STAT6 and Krüppel-like factor 4 (KLF4), which induce each other and promote M2 polarization. However, how these transcription factors implement M2 polarization is not(More)
The functional role of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3) signaling in cardiomyocytes is not entirely understood but it was linked to an increased propensity for triggered activity. The aim of this study was to determine how InsP3 receptors can translate Ca(2+) release into a depolarization of the plasma membrane and consequently arrhythmic activity. We(More)
Defect severity assessment is essential in order to allocate testing resources and effectively plan testing activities. In this paper, we use text classification techniques to predict and assess the severity of defects. The results are based on defect description of issue requirements obtained from NASA project. We have used Support Vector Machine technique(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Memory loss can be due to a wide variety of causes. We provide new information about the biology of common genetic and acquired causes of memory loss in older adults. RECENT FINDINGS New data are available about the genetics of Alzheimer disease (AD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), and frontotemporal dementia. Amyloid PET, FDG-PET, and(More)
MTB lysine-ɛ-aminotransferase (LAT) was found to play a crucial role in persistence and antibiotic tolerance. LAT serves as a potential target in the management of latent tuberculosis. In present work we attempted to derivatize the benzothiazole lead identified through high throughput virtual screening of Birla Institute of Technology and Science in house(More)
Secukinumab, a fully human monoclonal antibody that selectively neutralizes interleukin-17A (IL-17A), has been shown to have significant efficacy in the treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. Blocking critical mediators of immunity may carry a risk of increased opportunistic infections. Here we present(More)
