SUMMARY The modified version of Bayesian Information Criterion (mBIC) is a relatively simple model selection procedure that can be used when locating multiple interacting quantitative trait loci (QTL). Our earlier work demonstrated the statistical properties of mBIC for situations where the average genetic map interval is at least 5 cM. In this work mBIC is(More)
Changes in the morphology of dendritic spines are prominent during learning and in different neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases, including those in which glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β) has been implicated. Despite much evidence of the involvement of GSK-3β in functional synaptic plasticity, it is unclear how GSK-3β controls structural synaptic(More)
The distribution of isoelectric point (pI) of proteins in a proteome is universal for all organisms. It is bimodal dividing the proteome into two sets of acidic and basic proteins. Different species however have different abundance of acidic and basic proteins that may be correlated with taxonomy, subcellular localization, ecological niche of organisms and(More)
Maize, despite being thermophyllic due to its tropical origin, demonstrates high intraspecific diversity in cold-tolerance. To search for molecular mechanisms of this diversity, transcriptomic response to cold was studied in two inbred lines of contrasting cold-tolerance. Microarray analysis was followed by extensive statistical elaboration of data,(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous biochemical and physiological parameters of living organisms follow a circadian rhythm. Although such rhythmic behavior is particularly pronounced in plants, which are strictly dependent on the daily photoperiod, data on the molecular aspects of the diurnal cycle in plants is scarce and mostly concerns the model species Arabidopsis(More)
The differentiation-inducing potential of side-chain modified analogs of vitamins D, compared to the reference compound, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, was studied in blast cells from patients with acute myeloid leukemia and in cell lines. Analogs PRI-1906 and PRI-1907 showed increased cell-differentiation activities, PRI-1907 even at a very low concentration.(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the prognostic value of the vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) and hepatocyte growth factor receptor (HGFR, c-met) expressions in homogenous group of breast cancer patients. Tumor samples were collected from 98 patients with invasive ductal breast carcinoma stage II treated with primary surgery. We have(More)
The prevalence of the diapause response of the freshwater crustacean Daphnia magna to chemical cues on fish predation was evaluated in 35 clones originating from 14 European water bodies—inhabited or not inhabited by fish. Clonal lineages of experimental animals were cultured for 4 weeks in the presence or absence of water to which an extract of faeces of(More)
ABSTRACT Morphological variation of the supraorbital region (SR) in human crania has been investigated and its potential sources suggested, along with the importance of the size of the facial skeleton, neurocranium, and orbit for the formation of this region. However, previous studies have not indicated whether facial size exhibits a stronger association(More)
One of the important limitations of the standard glm procedure for estimation of the parametres of logistic regression model in R is the size of the data that is kept in the memory, i.e. the original sample and algorithmspecic temporary data, eectively restricting both cardinality and dimensionality of the sample. The biglm package makes possible to(More)
