In 2010 there were more than 200 million cases of malaria, and at least 655,000 deaths. The World Health Organization has recommended artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) for the treatment of uncomplicated malaria caused by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Artemisinin is a sesquiterpene endoperoxide with potent antimalarial properties, produced(More)
Animal models with genetic modifications under temporal and/or spatial control are invaluable to functional genomics and medical research. Here we report the generation of tissue-specific knockout rats via microinjection of zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs) into fertilized eggs. We generated rats with loxP-flanked (floxed) alleles and a tyrosine hydroxylase(More)
BACKGROUND Erythrocyte cholinesterase (RBC-ChE) activities serve as useful and sensitive biomarkers to monitor exposure to cholinesterase-inhibiting substances, such as chemical warfare nerve agents and pesticides. Although the interindividual variation of RBC-ChE is well characterized, the magnitude of intraindividual variation for RBC-ChE remains(More)
Recent advances in genome editing have facilitated the generation of nonhuman primate (NHP) models, with potential to unmask the complex biology of human disease not revealed by rodent models. However, their broader use is hindered by the challenges associated with generation of adult NHP models as well as the cost of their production. Here, we describe the(More)
In the version of this article initially published, we described a method to identify tumor-initiating cells from human primary gliomasphere cell cultures or directly from fresh human glioma specimens. We used FACS analysis to describe a tumor-initiating cell subpopulation that displayed a specific morphology (high forward scatter, low side scatter) and had(More)
