Metalloproteinase inhibitors for the disintegrin-like metalloproteinases ADAM10 and ADAM17 that differentially block constitutive and phorbol ester-inducible shedding of cell surface molecules.
The transmembrane metzinkin-proteases of the ADAM (a disintegrin and a metalloproteinase)-family ADAM10 and ADAM 17 are both implicated in the ectodomain shedding of various cell surface moleculesExpand

A genetic linkage map for the zebrafish.
To facilitate molecular genetic analysis of vertebrate development, haploid genetics was used to construct a recombination map for the zebrafish Danio (Brachydanio) rerio. The map consists of 401Expand

Membrane adsorption of endocrine disrupting compounds and pharmaceutically active compounds
Abstract Adsorption is one of the main mechanisms contributing to compound removal by membrane filtration, in addition to size exclusion and charge repulsion. In this study, the adsorption of 22Expand

Inactivation of Adenovirus Types 2, 5, and 41 in Drinking Water by UV Light, Free Chlorine, and Monochloramine
A bench-scale study was conducted to determine the inactivation of adenovirus (Ad) types 2, 5, and 41 by ultraviolet (UV) light, chlorine, and monochloramine. The motivation for this study was toExpand

RAGE Ligation Affects T Cell Activation and Controls T Cell Differentiation1
The pattern recognition receptor, RAGE, has been shown to be involved in adaptive immune responses but its role on the components of these responses is not well understood. We have studied theExpand
