Yersinia YopJ Acetylates and Inhibits Kinase Activation by Blocking Phosphorylation
Yersinia species use a variety of type III effector proteins to target eukaryotic signaling systems. The effector YopJ inhibits mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and the nuclear factor κBExpand

Conservative Fragments in Bacterial 16S rRNA Genes and Primer Design for 16S Ribosomal DNA Amplicons in Metagenomic Studies
Bacterial 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) amplicons have been widely used in the classification of uncultured bacteria inhabiting environmental niches. Primers targeting conservative regions of the rDNAsExpand

Total body irradiation selectively induces murine hematopoietic stem cell senescence.
Exposure to ionizing radiation (IR) and certain chemotherapeutic agents not only causes acute bone marrow (BM) suppression but also leads to long-term residual hematopoietic injury. This latterExpand

Cell-specific Induction of Apoptosis by Microinjection of Cytochrome c
Bcl-xL, an antiapoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family, inhibits programmed cell death in a broad variety of cell types. Recent reports have demonstrated that cytochromec is released from mitochondriaExpand

Milnacipran for the treatment of fibromyalgia in adults: a 15-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple-dose clinical trial.
BACKGROUND Preclinical and clinical studies have suggested that milnacipran, a dual norepinephrine-serotonin reuptake inhibitor, may be efficacious in the treatment of fibromyalgia (FM). OBJECTIVEExpand

Total body irradiation causes residual bone marrow injury by induction of persistent oxidative stress in murine hematopoietic stem cells.
Ionizing radiation (IR) and/or chemotherapy causes not only acute tissue damage but also late effects including long-term (or residual) bone marrow (BM) injury. The induction of residual BM injury isExpand

Carbon Monoxide Protects against Hyperoxia-induced Endothelial Cell Apoptosis by Inhibiting Reactive Oxygen Species Formation*
Hyperoxia causes cell injury and death associated with reactive oxygen species formation and inflammatory responses. Recent studies show that hyperoxia-induced cell death involves apoptosis,Expand
