    • Dinosaur Peptides Suggest Mechanisms of Protein Survival 

      San Antonio, James D.; Schweitzer, Mary H.; Jensen, Shane T.; Buckley, Michael; Orgel, Joseph P. R. O.; van Veen, Hendrik W.; Kalluri, Raghu (Public Library of Science, 2011)
      Eleven collagen peptide sequences recovered from chemical extracts of dinosaur bones were mapped onto molecular models of the vertebrate collagen fibril derived from extant taxa. The dinosaur peptides localized to fibril ...
    • Interstitial Fluid: The Overlooked Component of the Tumor Microenvironment? 

      Wiig, Helge; Tenstad, Olav; Iversen, Per Ole; Kalluri, Raghu; Bjerkvig, Rolf (BioMed Central, 2010)
      Background: The interstitium, situated between the blood and lymph vessels and the cells, consists of a solid or matrix phase and a fluid phase, together constituting the tissue microenvironment. Here we focus on the ...
    • Penetration of Endothelial Cell Coated Multicellular Tumor Spheroids by Iron Oxide Nanoparticles 

      Ho, Don N.; Kohler, Nathan; Sigdel, Aruna; Kalluri, Raghu; Morgan, Jeffrey R.; Xu, Chenjie; Sun, Shouheng (Ivyspring International Publisher, 2012)
      Iron oxide nanoparticles are a useful diagnostic contrast agent and have great potential for therapeutic applications. Multiple emerging diagnostic and therapeutic applications and the numerous versatile parameters of the ...
    • Preeclampsia 

      Lee, Soo Bong; Wong, Amy P.; Kanasaki, Keizo; Xu, Yong; Shenoy, Vivek K.; McElrath, Thomas Frederick; Whitesides, George McClelland; Kalluri, Raghu (Elsevier BV, 2010)
      Inadequate invasion of the uterus by cytotrophoblasts is speculated to result in pregnancy-induced disorders such as preeclampsia. However, the molecular mechanisms that govern appropriate invasion of cytotrophoblasts are ...
    • Stage-Specific Action of Matrix Metalloproteinases Influences Progressive Hereditary Kidney Disease 

      Zeisberg, Michael; Khurana, Mona; Rao, Velidi H.; Cosgrove, Dominic; Rougier, Jean-Philippe; Werner, Michelle C.; Shield III, Charles F.; Werb, Zena; Kalluri, Raghu (Public Library of Science, 2006)
      Background: Glomerular basement membrane (GBM), a key component of the blood-filtration apparatus in the in the kidney, is formed through assembly of type IV collagen with laminins, nidogen, and sulfated proteoglycans. ...
