Summarizing cellular responses as biological process networks
Background Microarray experiments can simultaneously identify thousands of genes that show significant perturbation in expression between two experimental conditions. Response networks, computed through the integration ...
Sensitive Detection of Pathway Perturbations in Cancers
Background The normal functioning of a living cell is characterized by complex interaction networks involving many different types of molecules. Associations detected between diseases and perturbations in well-defined ...
Aerosol microdroplets exhibit a stable pH gradient
Suspended aqueous aerosol droplets (< 50 mu m) are microreactors for many important atmospheric reactions. In droplets and other aquatic environments, pH is arguably the key parameter dictating chemical and biological ...
The hepatocyte proteome in organotypic rat liver models and the influence of the local microenvironment
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2017-06-20)
Background: Liver models that closely mimic the in vivo microenvironment are useful for understanding liver functions, capabilities, and intercellular communication processes. Three-dimensional (3D) liver models assembled ...
