Primary ciliary dyskinesia most often arises from loss of the dynein motors that power ciliary beating. Here we show that DNAAF3 (also known as PF22), a previously uncharacterized protein, is essential for the preassembly of dyneins into complexes before their transport into cilia. We identified loss-of-function mutations in the human DNAAF3 gene in(More)
We have developed a technique based on the use of monodisperse magnetic beads to isolate Mycobacterium ulcerans from heterogenous mixtures, prior to PCR amplification. Using this method, we were able to detect M. ulcerans in water samples taken from Phillip Island, Australia, the site of several outbreaks of M. ulcerans disease in recent times.

The K Ca 3.1 K + channel has been proposed as a novel target for pulmonary diseases such as asthma and pulmonary fibrosis. It is expressed in epithelia but its expression and function in primary human bronchial epithelial cells (HBECs) has not been described. Due to its proposed roles in the regulation of cell proliferation, migration, and epithelial fluid(More)
