The vast majority of ovarian cancers originate in the ovarian surface epithelium. Unfortunately, there is a lack of appropriate animal models for ovarian cancer research. Spontaneously transformed mouse ovarian surface epithelial cells may provide a faithful animal model for human ovarian cancer. One such cell line (ID8) has been partially characterized.(More)
Asthma is one of the most prevalent and costly chronic conditions in the United States, which cannot be cured. However, accurate and timely surveillance data could allow for timely and targeted interventions at the community or individual level. Current national asthma disease surveillance systems can have data availability lags of up to two weeks. Rapid(More)
Src tyrosine kinase has been found to be overexpressed and activated in a high proportion of ovarian cancers and ovarian cancer cell lines. Furthermore, Src activation is associated with activation of growth and survival signaling pathways. The present study was conducted in order to determine the effects of Src inhibition on ovarian cancer cell survival in(More)
The cell uses the cytoskeleton in virtually every aspect of cell survival and function. One primary function of the cytoskeleton is to connect to and stabilize intercellular junctions. To accomplish this task, microtubules, actin filaments, and intermediate filaments utilize cytolinker proteins, which physically bind the cytoskeletal filament to the core(More)
Asthma is a chronic disease that affects people of all ages, and is a serious health and economic concern worldwide. However, accurate and timely surveillance and predicting hospital visits could allow for targeted interventions and reduce the societal burden of asthma. Current national asthma disease surveillance systems can have data availability lags of(More)
