  • McCoy, Michael W.; Allen, Andrew P.; Gillooly, James F. (Public Library of Science, 2009-7-30)
    BACKGROUND. A better understanding of the size and abundance of open reading frames (ORFS) in whole genomes may shed light on the factors that control genome complexity. Here we examine the statistical distributions of ...
  • Wesson, Daniel W; Carey, Ryan M; Verhagen, Justus V; Wachowiak, Matt (Public Library of Science, 2008-4-8)
    To gain insight into which parameters of neural activity are important in shaping the perception of odors, we combined a behavioral measure of odor perception with optical imaging of odor representations at the level of ...
  • Heideman, Paul D; Utzurrum, Ruth CB (BioMed Central, 2003-11-21)
    BACKGROUND. Differences among species and among years in reproductive seasonality (the tendency for clusters of events to fall at approximately the same point in each year) and synchrony (amount of clustering of events ...
  • Riehl, William J.; Krapivsky, Paul L.; Redner, Sidney; Segrè, Daniel (Public Library of Science, 2010-4-1)
    Metabolic networks perform some of the most fundamental functions in living cells, including energy transduction and building block biosynthesis. While these are the best characterized networks in living systems, understanding ...
  • Ryder Wilkie, Kari T.; Mertl, Amy L.; Traniello, James F. A. (, 2010-10-1)
    Ants are among the most diverse, abundant and ecologically significant organisms on earth. Although their species richness appears to be greatest in the New World tropics, global patterns of ant diversity and distribution ...
  • Sullivan, James C.; Ryan, Joseph F.; Watson, James A.; Webb, Jeramy; Mullikin, James C.; Rokhsar, Daniel; Finnerty, John R. (Oxford University Press, 2005-12-28)
    StellaBase, the Nematostella vectensis Genomics Database, is a web-based resource that will facilitate desktop and bench-top studies of the starlet sea anemone. Nematostella is an emerging model organism that has already ...
  • Brown, Joseph W; Rest, Joshua S; García-Moreno, Jaime; Sorenson, Michael D; Mindell, David P (BioMed Central, 2008-1-28)
    BACKGROUND. Determining an absolute timescale for avian evolutionary history has proven contentious. The two sources of information available, paleontological data and inference from extant molecular genetic sequences ...
  • Sherawat, Manashi; Tolan, Dean R.; Allen, Karen N. (International Union of Crystallography, 2008-4-19)
    The X-ray crystallographic structure of a dimer variant of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase demonstrates a stable oligomer that mirrors half of the native tetramer. The presence of product demonstrates that this is an ...
  • Klausner, J. M.; Abu-Abid, S.; Alexander, J. S.; Hanshke-Mineau, R.; Goldman, G.; Morel, N.; Valeri, C. R.; Shepro, D.; Hechtman, H. B. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 1994)
    The study tests the role of thromboxane in modulating microvascular permeability in vitro. Cultured monolayers of bovine aortic endothelial cells were challenged with the thromboxane (Tx) mimic U46619. This led to disassembly ...
  • Gelfand, Yevgeniy; Rodriguez, Alfredo; Benson, Gary (Oxford University Press, 2006-12-14)
    Tandem repeats in DNA have been under intensive study for many years, first, as a consequence of their usefulness as genomic markers and DNA fingerprints and more recently as their role in human disease and regulatory ...
  • Murphy, Kevin F.; Adams, Rhys M.; Wang, Xiao; Balázsi, Gábor; Collins, James J. (Oxford University Press, 2010-03-08)
    Synthetic gene networks can be used to control gene expression and cellular phenotypes in a variety of applications. In many instances, however, such networks can behave unreliably due to gene expression noise. Accordingly, ...
  • Sullivan, James C.; Wolenski, Francis S.; Reitzel, Adam M.; French, Courtney E.; Traylor-Knowles, Nikki; Gilmore, Thomas D.; Finnerty, John R. (Public Library of Science, 2009-10-6)
    BACKGROUND. NF-κB is an evolutionarily conserved transcription factor that controls the expression of genes involved in many key organismal processes, including innate immunity, development, and stress responses. NF-κB ...
  • Sullivan, James C.; Reitzel, Adam M.; Finnerty, John R. (Nucleic Acids Research, 2008-1)
    The starlet sea anemone, Nematostella vectensis, is a basal metazoan organism that has recently emerged as an important model system in developmental biology and evolutionary genomics. StellaBase, the Nematostella Genomics ...
