E- and N-cadherin are members of the classical cadherin family of proteins. E-cadherin plays an important role in maintaining the normal phenotype of epithelial cells. Previous studies from our laboratory and other laboratories have shown that inappropriate expression of N-cadherin by tumor cells derived from epithelial tissue results in conversion of the(More)
BACKGROUND Arsenic exposure from drinking water has been associated with heart disease; however, underlying mechanisms are uncertain. OBJECTIVE We evaluated the association between a history of arsenic exposure from drinking water and the prolongation of heart rate-corrected QT (QTc), PR, and QRS intervals. METHOD We conducted a study of 1,715(More)
—A gesture-based human computer interface can make computers and devices easier to use, such as by allowing people to share photos by moving their hands through the air. Existing solutions have relied on exotic hardware, often involving elaborate setups limited to the research lab. Gesture recognition algorithms used so far are not practical or responsive(More)

Recent evidence points to the protein arginine methyltransferase (PRMT) family of enzymes playing critical roles in cancer. PRMT7 has been identified in several gene expression studies to be associated with increased metastasis and decreased survival in breast cancer patients. However, this has not been extensively studied. Here we report that PRMT7(More)
BACKGROUND Although histologic chorioamnionitis (HCA) is known to be associated with poor outcomes in preterm infants, its clinical significance among term infants is not clearly known. OBJECTIVES To investigate the utility of HCA in determining early onset clinical sepsis (EOCS) among term newborns. METHODS The incidence of HCA and EOCS in term infants(More)
The Lupinus genus consists of 200–600 species with diversified morphological and biochemical characteristics that provide scope for increasing the value of protein attributes in commercial lupin species through genetic improvement. This study characterised protein polymorphism among 33 selected lupin genotypes representing 19 species from Old World and New(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) continues to rise alarmingly despite years of intensive research. The need to explore alternative remedies such as traditional phytotherapy has therefore become increasingly important in the management and treatment of DM. METHODS Diabetes was induced by a single intraperitoneal (i.p) injection of(More)
