While the mechanisms by which MAP kinases become activated and inactivated have been well understood, the molecular details by which MAP kinases in turn activate transcription factors are not fully understood. Since ultimately the developmental fate of cells is determined by the activity of transcription factors, a clear understanding of how their activity is regulated… Read More »

Our current findings of unchanged expression of TNF-a, Fas receptor, Fas L, caspase-8 and pro-caspase-8 in FVB and ADH mice in response to ethanol exposure suggest a minimal role of the death receptor pathway in ethanol-and ADH-elicited apoptotic responses. In summary, the present study has provided convincing evidence that cardiac overexpression of ADH exacerbated acute… Read More »

Optimal performance in extreme environments is a complex process

Cellular immunity in particular may represent an important component for effective clearance of the URT and in order to prevent both disease and colonization, a combined antibody and cellular response may be required. Extreme environments are characterized as those situations that place a high demand on the physiological, affective, cognitive, and/or social processing resources of… decoratively

Indeed there is a longstanding hypothesis that milk oligosaccharides serve a decoy function to prevent potentially dangerous microbes from doing harm to the immunologically fragile neonate by reducing microbe-host interactions. Along the same lines free milk oligosaccharides such as sialyllactoses may modulate interactions directly within the host. This could include interactions between cells, between receptor… (509) 689-1902

Analyzing a fairly large sample of hypothetical proteins using our annotation

One implication of this is that many proteins with existing electronic annotations, at least those with specific functions, may be overly-specific.
