OBJECTIVE A new member of the MAP kinase family, big MAP kinase-1 (BMK1), has been recently identified to promote cell growth and attenuate apoptosis. P90 ribosomal S6 kinase (p90RSK), one of the potentially important substrates of extracellular signal regulated kinase (ERK), regulates gene expression in part via phosphorylation of CREB and the Na(+)/H(+)(More)
Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 and the type I IGF-1 receptor are important regulators of vascular function that may contribute to cardiovascular disease. We hypothesized that IGF-1 causes endothelial cell dysfunction and expression of neutrophil and monocyte adhesion molecules by enhancing pro-inflammatory cytokine signal transduction. Long-term IGF-1(More)
—This brief proposes the analysis and design of a high-efficiency differential radio-frequency (RF) front-end for electronic-product-code second-generation-compatible RF identification tags. By studying the operating mechanism of an N-stage rectifier using a dynamic compensation technique, we propose a steady-state model to predict its output voltage and(More)
col chains are terminated with primary amines to facilitate synthetic access for bioconjugation to various targeting moieties to make optical molecular probes. The amines also impart a special property to the nanoparticle: the ability to penetrate into cells without the need for additional conjugation to protein induction domain peptides such as TAT.(More)
