    • p-adic interpolation of iterates 

      Poonen, Bjorn (Oxford University Press, 2014-03)
      Extending work of Bell and of Bell, Ghioca, and Tucker, we prove that for a p-adic analytic self-map f on a closed unit polydisk, if every coefficient of f(x)−x has valuation greater than that of p [1over (p−1)], then the ...
    • The P-Norm Push: A Simple Convex Ranking Algorithm that Concentrates at the Top of the List 

      Rudin, Cynthia (MIT Press, 2009-10)
      We are interested in supervised ranking algorithms that perform especially well near the top of the ranked list, and are only required to perform sufficiently well on the rest of the list. In this work, we provide a ...
    • The p-parity conjecture for elliptic curves with a p-isogeny 

      Cesnavicius, Kestutis (Walter de Gruyter, 2014-06)
      For an elliptic curve E over a number field K, one consequence of the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture is the parity conjecture: the global root number matches the parity of the Mordell-Weil rank. Assuming finiteness ...

      Recent efforts have identified the p38alpha Ser/Thr kinase as a potential target for the treatment of inflammatory diseases as well as non-small cell lung carcinoma. Despite the significance of p38alpha, no direct activity ...
    • The p53 binding protein PDCD5 is not rate-limiting in DNA damage induced cell death 

      Bock, Florian J.; Tanzer, Maria C.; Haschka, Manuel D.; Krumschnabel, Gerhard; Sohm, Benedicte; e.a. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-06)
      The tumour suppressor p53 is an important mediator of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in response to DNA damage, acting mainly by transcriptional regulation of specific target genes. The exact details how p53 modulates ...
    • p53 constrains progression to anaplastic thyroid carcinoma in a Braf-mutant mouse model of papillary thyroid cancer 

      McFadden, David Glenn; Vernon, Amanda; Santiago, Philip M.; Martinez-McFaline, Raul; Bhutkar, Arjun (AJ); e.a. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-04)
      Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) has among the worst prognoses of any solid malignancy. The low incidence of the disease has in part precluded systematic clinical trials and tissue collection, and there has been little ...
    • p53 Controls Radiation-Induced Gastrointestinal Syndrome in Mice Independent of Apoptosis 

      Kirsch, David G.; Santiago, Philip M.; di Tomaso, Emmanuelle; Sullivan, Julie M.; Hou, Wu-Shiun; e.a. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2009-12)
      Acute exposure to ionizing radiation can cause lethal damage to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, a condition called the GI syndrome. Whether the target cells affected by radiation to cause the GI syndrome are derived from ...
    • p53 null Fluorescent Yellow Direct Repeat (FYDR) mice have normal levels of homologous recombination 

      Wiktor-Brown, Dominika M.; Sukup-Jackson, Michelle R.; Fakhraldeen, Saja A.; Hendricks, Carrie A.; Engelward, Bevin P. (Elsevier B.V., 2011-12)
      The tumor suppressor p53 is a transcription factor whose function is critical for maintaining genomic stability in mammalian cells. In response to DNA damage, p53 initiates a signaling cascade that results in cell cycle ...
    • p63 and p73 Transcriptionally Regulate Genes Involved in DNA Repair 

      Lin, Yu-Li; Sengupta, Shomit; Gurdziel, Katherine; Bell, George W.; Jacks, Tyler E.; e.a. (Public Library of Science, 2009-10)
      The p53 family activates many of the same genes in response to DNA damage. Because p63 and p73 have structural differences from p53 and play distinct biological functions in development and metastasis, it is likely that ...
    • Pace of shifts in climate regions increases with global temperature 

      Mahlstein, Irina; Daniel, J. S.; Solomon, Susan (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-04)
      Human-induced climate change causes significant changes in local climates, which in turn lead to changes in regional climate zones. Large shifts in the world distribution of Köppen–Geiger climate classifications by the end ...
    • Pacific Shallow Meridional Overturning Circulation in a Warming Climate 

      Wang, Daiwei; Cane, Mark A. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-12)
      By analyzing a set of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 3 (CMIP3) climate model projections of the twenty-first century, it is found that the shallow meridional overturning of the Pacific subtropical cells ...
