Podocalyxin variants and risk of prostate cancer and tumor aggressiveness.
We previously reported linkage of a prostate cancer tumor aggressiveness locus to chromosome 7q32-q33, a region also associated with a high frequency of allelic imbalance in prostate tumors. TheExpand

Use of a Tissue Blotting Immunoassay to Examine the Distribution of Pineapple Closterovirus in Hawaii.
Specific monoclonal antibodies made to a pineapple closterovirus (PCV) were used in a tissue blotting immunoassay (TBIA) for the detection of PCV in pineapple. More than 2,000 samples were tested inExpand

Maternal cigarette smoking, metabolic gene polymorphisms, and preterm delivery: new insights on G×E interactions and pathogenic pathways
Preterm delivery (PTD, <37 weeks of gestation) is a significant clinical and public health problem. Previously, we reported that maternal smoking and metabolic gene polymorphisms of CYP1A1 MspI andExpand

The joint association between F5 gene polymorphisms and maternal smoking during pregnancy on preterm delivery
Factor V (F5) genetic variants and maternal smoking during pregnancy individually has been associated with increased risk of preterm delivery (PTD). We hypothesize that F5 gene and maternal smokingExpand

Haplotypes in the APOA1-C3-A4-A5 gene cluster affect plasma lipids in both humans and baboons.
Genetic studies in non-human primates serve as a potential strategy for identifying genomic intervals where polymorphisms impact upon human disease-related phenotypes. It remains unclear, however,Expand
