BACKGROUND Neuroblastomas are characterized by hemizygous 1p deletions, suggesting that a tumor suppressor gene resides in this region. We previously mapped the smallest region of consistent deletion to a 2-Mb region of 1p36.31 that encodes 23 genes. Based on mutation analysis, expression pattern, and putative function, we identified CHD5 as the best tumor(More)
Approximately 20% of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (FALS) arises from germ-line mutations in the superoxide dismutase-1 (SOD1) gene. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the process have been elusive. Here, we show that a neuronal homologous to E6AP carboxyl terminus (HECT)-type ubiquitin-protein isopeptide ligase (NEDL1) physically binds(More)
This paper presents a nouet feed-through assignment algorithm based on minimum-cost multi-commodity flow formulation. After finding single-commodity flow with f70w conj%ts on the formulation, the algorithm eliminates all the conflicts to obtain a feasible solution. Since all nets and cell rows are considered simultaneously, our algorithm globally minimizes(More)
Hypoxic induction of the early growth response-1 (Egr-1) transcription factor initiates proinflammatory and procoagulant gene expression. Orthotopic/isogeneic rat lung transplantation triggers Egr-1 expression and nuclear DNA binding activity corresponding to Egr-1, which leads to increased expression of downstream target genes such as interleukin-1β,(More)
Skin wound healing is mediated by inflammatory cell infiltration that is highly regulated by various adhesion molecules. Mice lacking intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) delayed skin wound healing and mice lacking both L-selectin and ICAM-1 (L-selectin/ICAM-1(-/-)) show more delayed wound healing. Deficiency of both endothelial selectins (E-selectin(More)
Sucrose is more lipogenic than starch, and the extreme ingestion of sucrose induces adiposity and obesity. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of the eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) leaf extract (ELE) on adiposity due to dietary sucrose in rats. In addition, in this study, the effect of ELE on intestinal fructose absorption was also examined.(More)
