Positive Mass Theorem and the Boundary Behaviors of Compact Manifolds with Nonnegative Scalar Curvature
In this paper, we study the boundary behaviors of compact manifolds with nonnegative scalar curvature and with nonempty boundary. Using a general version of Positive Mass Theorem of Schoen-Yau andExpand

A Novel Cardiolipin-remodeling Pathway Revealed by a Gene Encoding an Endoplasmic Reticulum-associated Acyl-CoA:Lysocardiolipin Acyltransferase (ALCAT1) in Mouse*
Cardiolipin is a major membrane polyglycerophospholipid that is required for the reconstituted activity of a number of key mitochondrial enzymes involved in energy metabolism. Cardiolipin isExpand

Cloning and Functional Characterization of a Mouse Intestinal Acyl-CoA:Monoacylglycerol Acyltransferase, MGAT2*
Acyl-CoA:monoacylglycerol transferase (MGAT) plays a predominant role in dietary fat absorption in the small intestine, where it catalyzes the first step of triacylglycerol resynthesis in enterocytesExpand

Synapses of Amphids Defective (SAD-A) Kinase Promotes Glucose-stimulated Insulin Secretion through Activation of p21-activated Kinase (PAK1) in Pancreatic β-Cells*
Background: PAK1 is phosphorylated at Thr-423, which is required for glucose-stimulated insulin secretion, but the kinase regulator remains elusive. Results: We identified SAD-A as the kinase thatExpand

Identification and functional characterization of hCLS1, a human cardiolipin synthase localized in mitochondria.
In eukaryotic cells, CLS (cardiolipin synthase) is involved in the final step of cardiolipin synthesis by catalysing the transfer of a phosphatidyl residue from CDP-DAG (diacylglycerol) to PGExpand
