Computational Modeling-Based Discovery of Novel Classes of Anti-Inflammatory Drugs That Target Lanthionine Synthetase C-Like Protein 2
Background: Lanthionine synthetase component C-like protein 2 (LANCL2) is a member of the eukaryotic lanthionine synthetase component C-Like protein family involved in signal transduction and insulin sensitization. Recently, ...
High-throughput Physical Mapping of Chromosomes using Automated in situ Hybridization
(Journal Of Visualized Experiments, 2012-06-01)
Projects to obtain whole-genome sequences for 10,000 vertebrate species and for 5,000 insect and related arthropod species are expected to take place over the next 5 years. For example, the sequencing of the genomes for ...
Fluorescent in situ Hybridization on Mitotic Chromosomes of Mosquitoes
(Journal Of Visualized Experiments, 2012-09-01)
Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) is a technique routinely used by many laboratories to determine the chromosomal position of DNA and RNA probes. One important application of this method is the development of ...

Shared Resistance to Aging and ALS in Neuromuscular Junctions of Specific Muscles
Normal aging and neurodegenerative diseases both lead to structural and functional alterations in synapses. Comparison of synapses that are generally similar but respond differently to insults could provide the basis for ...
7.0-T Magnetic Resonance Imaging Characterization of Acute Blood-Brain-Barrier Disruption Achieved with Intracranial Irreversible Electroporation
The blood-brain-barrier (BBB) presents a significant obstacle to the delivery of systemically administered chemotherapeutics for the treatment of brain cancer. Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is an emerging technology ...
Relationship between Humidity and Influenza A Viability in Droplets and Implications for Influenza's Seasonality
Humidity has been associated with influenza’s seasonality, but the mechanisms underlying the relationship remain unclear. There is no consistent explanation for influenza’s transmission patterns that applies to both temperate ...
