Opportunistic Premise Plumbing Pathogens: Increasingly Important Pathogens in Drinking Water.
Opportunistic premise plumbing pathogens are responsible for a significant number of infections whose origin has been traced to drinking water. These opportunistic pathogens represent an emerging water borne disease problem ...
Models in biology: lessons from modeling regulation of the eukaryotic cell cycle
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2015-07-01)
Dietary biomarkers: advances, limitations and future directions

Therapeutic Innovations: Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors in Cancer
Conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy involving DNA-interacting agents and indiscriminate cell death is no longer the future of cancer management. While chemotherapy is not likely to completely disappear from the armamentarium; ...
Plant Adaptation to Multiple Stresses during Submergence and Following Desubmergence
(Mdpi Ag, 2015-12-01)
Plants require water for growth and development, but excessive water negatively affects their productivity and viability. Flash floods occasionally result in complete submergence of plants in agricultural and natural ...
Regulatory T Cells in Arterivirus and Coronavirus Infections: Do They Protect Against Disease or Enhance it?
Regulatory T cells (T<sub>regs</sub>) are a subset of T cells that are responsible for maintaining peripheral immune tolerance and homeostasis. The hallmark of T<sub>regs</sub> is the expression of the forkhead box P3 ...
Hypothalamus-adipose tissue crosstalk: neuropeptide Y and the regulation of energy metabolism
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2014-06-10)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is an orexigenic neuropeptide that plays a role in regulating adiposity by promoting energy storage in white adipose tissue and inhibiting brown adipose tissue activation in mammals. This review describes ...
Virtual Screening as a Technique for PPAR Modulator Discovery
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2010-01-01)
Virtual screening (VS) is a discovery technique to identify novel compounds with therapeutic and preventive efficacy against disease. Our current focus is on the in silico screening and discovery of novel peroxisome ...
On the Minimal Length Uncertainty Relation and the Foundations of String Theory
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2011)
We review our work on the minimal length uncertainty relation as suggested by perturbative string theory. We discuss simple phenomenological implications of the minimal length uncertainty relation and then argue that the ...
Developmental programming in response to intrauterine growth restriction impairs myoblast function and skeletal muscle metabolism.
Fetal adaptations to placental insufficiency alter postnatal metabolic homeostasis in skeletal muscle by reducing glucose oxidation rates, impairing insulin action, and lowering the proportion of oxidative fibers. In animal ...
