    • Affective Beliefs Influence the Experience of Eating Meat 

      Anderson, Eric C.; Barrett, Lisa Feldman (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      People believe they experience the world objectively, but research continually demonstrates that beliefs influence perception. Emerging research indicates that beliefs influence the experience of eating. In three studies, ...
    • DHA but Not EPA Emulsions Preserve Neurological and Mitochondrial Function after Brain Hypoxia-Ischemia in Neonatal Mice 

      Mayurasakorn, Korapat; Niatsetskaya, Zoya V.; Sosunov, Sergey A.; Williams, Jill J.; Zirpoli, Hylde; Vlasakov, Iliyan; Deckelbaum, Richard J.; Ten, Vadim S. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Background and Purpose Treatment with triglyceride emulsions of docosahexaenoic acid (tri-DHA) protected neonatal mice against hypoxia-ischemia (HI) brain injury. The mechanism of this neuroprotection remains unclear. We ...
    • Disinhibition in Risky Sexual Behavior in Men, but Not Women, during Four Years of Antiretroviral Therapy in Rural, Southwestern Uganda 

      Kembabazi, Annet; Bajunirwe, Francis; Hunt, Peter W.; Martin, Jeffrey N.; Muzoora, Conrad; Haberer, Jessica E.; Bangsberg, David R.; Siedner, Mark J. (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Background: In resource-rich areas, risky sexual behavior (RSB) largely diminishes after initiation of anti-retroviral therapy, with notable exceptions among some populations who perceive a protected benefit from anti-retroviral ...
    • Evaluation of OPEN Zinc Finger Nucleases for Direct Gene Targeting of the ROSA26 Locus in Mouse Embryos 

      Hermann, Mario; Rector, Kyle; Ruiz, Joseph; Becher, Burkhard; Bürki, Kurt; Khayter, Cyd; Aguzzi, Adriano; Buch, Thorsten; Pelczar, Pawel; Maeder, Morgan L.; Joung, Jae Keith (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs) enable precise genome modification in a variety of organisms and cell types. Commercial ZFNs were reported to enhance gene targeting directly in mouse zygotes, whereas similar approaches using ...
    • Integration of Mouse and Human Genome-Wide Association Data Identifies KCNIP4 as an Asthma Gene 

      Sheppard, Keith; Berndt, Annerose; Leme, Adriana S.; Myers, Rachel A.; Gignoux, Christopher R.; Gauderman, W. James; Yang, James J.; Mathias, Rasika A.; Romieu, Isabelle; Torgerson, Dara G.; Roth, Lindsey A.; Huntsman, Scott; Eng, Celeste; Klanderman, Barbara; Ziniti, John; Senter-Sylvia, Jody; Szefler, Stanley J.; Lemanske, Robert F.; Zeiger, Robert S.; Strunk, Robert C.; Martinez, Fernando D.; Boushey, Homer; Chinchilli, Vernon M.; Mauger, David; Koppelman, Gerard H.; Postma, Dirkje S.; Nieuwenhuis, Maartje A. E.; Vonk, Judith M.; Lima, John J.; Irvin, Charles G.; Peters, Stephen P.; Kubo, Michiaki; Tamari, Mayumi; Nakamura, Yusuke; Bleecker, Eugene R.; Meyers, Deborah A.; London, Stephanie J.; Gilliland, Frank D.; Burchard, Esteban G.; Nicolae, Dan L.; Ober, Carole; Paigen, Beverly; Churchill, Gary; Himes, Blanca Elena; Levin, Albert M.; Israel, Elliot; Litonjua, Augusto Ampil; Tantisira, Kelan; Raby, Benjamin Alexander; Barnes, Kathleen C.; Williams, L. Keoki; Demeo, Dawn Lisa; Silverman, Edwin Kepner; Shapiro, Steve D.; Weiss, Scott Tillman (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Asthma is a common chronic respiratory disease characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR). The genetics of asthma have been widely studied in mouse and human, and homologous genomic regions have been associated with ...
    • Interleukin-33 Primes Mast Cells for Activation by IgG Immune Complexes 

      Kaieda, Shinjiro; Wang, Jun-Xia; Shnayder, Ruslan; Fishgal, Nadia; Hei, Hillary; Lee, Richard Theodore; Stevens, Richard Leslie; Nigrovic, Peter Andrija (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Mast cells (MCs) are heterogeneous cells whose phenotype is modulated by signals received from the local microenvironment. Recent studies have identified the mesenchymal-derived cytokine IL-33 as a potent direct activator ...
    • Maximum Running Speed of Captive Bar-Headed Geese Is Unaffected by Severe Hypoxia 

      Hawkes, Lucy A.; Butler, Patrick J.; Frappell, Peter B.; Meir, Jessica U.; Milsom, William K.; Scott, Graham R.; Bishop, Charles M. (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      While bar-headed geese are renowned for migration at high altitude over the Himalayas, previous work on captive birds suggested that these geese are unable to maintain rates of oxygen consumption while running in severely ...
    • Posterior Parietal Cortex Drives Inferotemporal Activations During Three-Dimensional Object Vision 

      Van Dromme, Ilse C.; Premereur, Elsie; Verhoef, Bram-Ernst; Vanduffel, Wim; Janssen, Peter (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      The primate visual system consists of a ventral stream, specialized for object recognition, and a dorsal visual stream, which is crucial for spatial vision and actions. However, little is known about the interactions and ...
    • Selenium and Selenoprotein Deficiencies Induce Widespread Pyogranuloma Formation in Mice, while High Levels of Dietary Selenium Decrease Liver Tumor Size Driven by TGFα 

      Moustafa, Mohamed E.; Carlson, Bradley A.; Anver, Miriam R.; Bobe, Gerd; Zhong, Nianxin; Ward, Jerrold M.; Perella, Christine M.; Hoffmann, Victoria J.; Rogers, Keith; Combs, Gerald F.; Schweizer, Ulrich; Merlino, Glenn; Gladyshev, Vadim; Hatfield, Dolph L. (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Changes in dietary selenium and selenoprotein status may influence both anti- and pro-cancer pathways, making the outcome of interventions different from one study to another. To characterize such outcomes in a defined ...
    • A Sexually Conditioned Switch of Chemosensory Behavior in C. elegans 

      Sakai, Naoko; Iwata, Ryo; Yokoi, Saori; Butcher, Rebecca A.; Clardy, Jon; Tomioka, Masahiro; Iino, Yuichi (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      In sexually reproducing animals, mating is essential for transmitting genetic information to the next generation and therefore animals have evolved mechanisms for optimizing the chance of successful mate location. In the ...
