Developing axons are attracted to the CNS midline by Netrin proteins and other as yet unidentified signals. Netrin signals are transduced in part by Frazzled (Fra)/DCC receptors. Genetic analysis in Drosophila indicates that additional unidentified receptors are needed to mediate the attractive response to Netrin. Analysis of Bolwig's nerve reveals that(More)
This cross-sectional mail survey evaluated the prevalence and predictors of unconventional therapy (UT) utilization among 569 community-based people with MS. One-third reported having visited a UT practitioner in the last 6 months. Utilizers tended to report at least one medical comorbidity, earn at least $50,000 a year, and engage in preventive health(More)
Hepatic microvesicular steatosis is a hallmark of drug-induced hepatotoxicity and early-stage fatty liver disease. Current histopathology techniques are inadequate for the clinical evaluation of hepatic microvesicular steatosis. In this paper, we explore the use of multimodal coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy for the detection and(More)
Exposure to high altitude (HA) affects neurotransmitter levels in the adult brain and induces a number of neurologic and behavioral disturbances. The present work was undertaken to investigate the effects of chronic exposure to a moderate hypoxic environment (natural altitude of 3800 m, 12.8% O2 in inspired air) on the development from birth until adulthood(More)
