  • Houghton, JeanMarie; Li, Hanchen; Fan, Xueli; Liu, Yingwang; Liu, Jian Hua; Rao, Varada P.; Poutahidis, Theofilos; Taylor, Christie L.; Jackson, Erin A.; Hewes, Christine M.; Lyle, Stephen; Cerny, Anna; Bowen, Glennice; Cerny, Jan; Moore, Nathan; Kurt-Jones, Evelyn A.; Erdman, Susan E. (Mary Ann Liebert, 2010-07)
    Neoplastic epithelia may remain dormant and clinically unapparent in human patients for decades. Multiple risk factors including mutations in tumor cells or the stromal cells may affect the switch from dormancy to malignancy. ...
  • Ma, Long; Horvitz, H. Robert (Public Library of Science, 2009-11)
    The removal of introns from eukaryotic RNA transcripts requires the activities of five multi-component ribonucleoprotein complexes and numerous associated proteins. The lack of mutations affecting splicing factors essential ...

  • Kou, Su-Peng; Yu, Jing; Wen, Xiao-Gang (American Physical Society, 2009-09)
    In this paper, we develop an effective mutual Chern-Simons Landau-Ginzburg (MCSLG) theory to describe the continuous topological quantum phase transition (TQPT). In particular, we consider the TQPT between a spin-polarized ...
  • Chan, Chung; Zheng, Lizhong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    A mutual dependence expression is established for the secret key agreement problem when all users are active. In certain source networks, the expression can be interpreted as certain notions of connectivity and network ...
  • Khan, Mozaffar Nayim; Kogan, Leonid; Serafeim, George (American Finance Association, 2012-07)
    We use price pressure resulting from purchases by mutual funds with large capital inflows to identify overvalued equity. This is a relatively exogenous overvaluation indicator as it is associated with who is buying—buyers ...
  • Sheiretov, Yanko; Grundy, Dave; Zilberstein, Vladimir; Goldfine, Neil J.; Maley, Susan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    Utilization of America's substantial coal reserves for energy production has become a national priority. Advanced coal-fired power plants offer an environmentally friendly means to achieve that goal. These power plants, ...
  • Frisan, Teresa; Henriksson, Marie; Larsson, Lars-Gunnar; Thelestam, Monica; Josenhans, Christine; Sterzenbach, Torsten; Stenerlöw, Bo; Guidi, Riccardo; Yan, Qinzi; Tronnersjö, Susanna; Albihn, Ami; Guerra, Lina; Schauer, David B.; Fox, James G. (Public Library of Science, 2010-01)
    Background: The MYC protein controls cellular functions such as differentiation, proliferation, and apoptosis. In response to genotoxic agents, cells overexpressing MYC undergo apoptosis. However, the MYC-regulated effectors ...
  • Mesirov, Jill P.; Wolfer, Anita; Wittner, Ben S.; Irimia, Daniel; Flavin, Richard J.; Lupien, Mathieu; Gunawardane, Ruwanthi N.; Meyer, Clifford A.; Lightcap, Eric S.; Tamayo, Pablo; Liu, X. Shirley; Shioda, Toshi; Toner, Mehmet; Loda, Massimo; Brown, Myles; Brugge, Joan S.; Ramaswamy, Sridhar (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2010-02)
    Gene expression signatures are used in the clinic as prognostic tools to determine the risk of individual patients with localized breast tumors developing distant metastasis. We lack a clear understanding, however, of ...
  • Assogba, Yannick M.; Donath, Judith (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-01)
    This paper introduces Mycrocosm, a micro-blogging site in which users communicate via statistical graphics, rather than the usual short text statements. Users of Mycrocosm can record everyday "personal statistics" and share ...
  • Crotty Alexander, Laura E.; Marsh, Brenda J.; Timmer, Anjuli M.; Lin, Ann E.; Zainabadi, Kayvan; Czopik, Agnieszka; Nizet, Victor; Guarente, Leonard Pershing (Public Library of Science, 2013-12)
    The role of sirtuin-1 (SIRT1) in innate immunity, and in particular the influence of SIRT1 on antimicrobial defense against infection, has yet to be reported but is important to define since SIRT1 inhibitors are being ...
  • Festuccia, William T.; Pouliot, Philippe; Bakan, Inan; Sabatini, David M.; Laplante, Mathieu; Sabatini, David M. (Public Library of Science, 2014-04)
    The phosphoinositide-3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt) axis plays a central role in attenuating inflammation upon macrophage stimulation with toll-like receptor (TLR) ligands. The mechanistic target of rapamycin complex ...
  • Chung, Jaewoo; Xu, Kuang; Colaco, Andrea B.; Schmandt, Christopher M.; Li, Victor O. K. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-01)
    In this paper, we propose a novel concept for a social TV application targeting the demographic of viewers enjoying live sports events, such as road bicycle racing. We intend to enhance the viewing experiences of spectators ...
  • Cassa, Christopher A.; Schmidt, Brian; Kohane, Isaac; Mandl, Kenneth D. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2008-07)
    Background: Genomic sequencing of SNPs is increasingly prevalent, though the amount of familial information these data contain has not been quantified. Methods: We provide a framework for measuring the risk to siblings ...

    Understanding the evolution of language requires evidence regarding origins and processes that led to change. In the last 40 years, there has been an explosion of research on this problem as well as a sense that considerable ...
  • Sunyaev, Shamil R.; Lander, Eric S. (National Academy of Sciences, 2012-01)
    Human genetics has been haunted by the mystery of “missing heritability” of common traits. Although studies have discovered >1,200 variants associated with common diseases and traits, these variants typically appear to ...
  • Adams, Allan; Jockers, Hans; Kumar, Vijay; Lapan, Joshua M. (Springer-Verlag, 2011-12)
    We study sigma models in AdS4 with global N = 1 supersymmetry and find that they differ significantly from their flat-space cousins — the target space is constrained to be a K¨ahler manifold with an exact K¨ahler form, ...
  • Onbasli, Mehmet Cengiz; Okyay, Ali K. (SPIE--the International Society for Optical Engineering, 2010-08)
    State-of-the-art copper interconnects suffer from increasing spatial power dissipation due to chip downscaling and RC delays reducing operation bandwidth. Wide bandwidth, minimized Ohmic loss, deep sub-wavelength confinement ...
