BACKGROUND Results of array studies have suggested abnormalities in expression of lipid and myelin-related genes in schizophrenia. Here, we investigated oligodendrocyte-specific and myelination-associated gene expression in schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder. METHODS We used samples from the Stanley brain collection, consisting of 15(More)
A number of microarray investigations using human postmortem brain tissue have been published recently, exploring a multitude of human brain disorders with the aim of unraveling the underlying pathologies. Although the technology is still developing and lacks sufficient sensitivity with regard to detecting splice variants and low abundance transcripts,(More)
Anti-mitotic chemotherapeutic agents such as taxanes activate the spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) to arrest anaphase onset, but taxane-exposed cells eventually undergo slippage to exit mitosis. The therapeutic efficacy of taxanes depends on whether slippage after SAC arrest culminates in continued cell survival, or in death by apoptosis. However, the(More)

This report documents the research conducted for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) concerning the use of pavement alternates. The scope of the project includes reviewing the state-of-the-practice in methods used for pavement type selection, interviewing TxDOT key personnel with experience in developing pavement structure alternatives,(More)
Expansive soil is considered one of the most common causes of pavement distresses in FM roadways. Depending upon the moisture level, expansive soils will experience changes in volume due to moisture fluctuations from seasonal variations. The objective of this research was to evaluate existing repair projects on selected FM roadways. Those roadways(More)
