The NLRP3 inflammasome responds to microbes and danger signals by processing and activating proinflammatory cytokines, including interleukin 1β (IL-1β) and IL-18. We found here that activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome was restricted to interphase of the cell cycle by NEK7, a serine-threonine kinase previously linked to mitosis. Activation of the NLRP3(More)
BACKGROUND Understanding the spatial relationships among the liver segments, and intrahepatic portal and hepatic veins is essential for surgical treatment of liver diseases. Teleimmersive virtual reality enables improved visualization over conventional media because it supports stereo vision, viewer-centered perspective, large angles of view, and(More)
Integrating anatomic nomenclature with geometric anatomic data via a web interface and providing illustration and visualization tools presents numerous challenges. We have developed a library of anatomic models and methods for navigating anatomic nomenclature. Based on the library and tools, we have developed a simple, yet powerful, open web-based tool that(More)
Creating a library of binary segmentation mask sequences for the abdominal anatomy hierarchy of SNOMED and developing a quick, flexible automatic method for generating iso-surface models from these named structure masks has been a primary goal in our research. This paper describes our development of a clear path for computing visualizations of arbitrary(More)
