  • Lan,Xi; Hsieh,John C. F.; Schmidt,Carl J.; Zhu,Qing; Lamont,Susan J. (Biomed Central LTD, 2016-22-11)
    Background: High ambient temperatures cause stress in poultry, especially for broiler lines, which are genetically selected for rapid muscle growth. RNA-seq technology provides powerful insights into environmental response ...
  • Li,Fenghua; Zheng,Yi; Smith,Stephanie D.; Shic,Frederick; Moore,Christina C.; Zheng,Xixi; Qi,Yanjie; Liu,Zhengkui; Leckman,James F. (Biomed Central LTD, 7/8/05)
    Objective: At present, there are no well-validated biomarkers for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The present study used an infrared motion tracking system to monitor and record the movement intensity of ...
  • Modarai,Shirin R.; Opdenaker,Lynn M.; Viswanathan,Vignesh; Fields,Jeremy Z.; Boman,Bruce M. (Biomed Central LTD, 7/8/05)
    Background: Neuroendocrine cells (NECs) reside adjacent to colonic stem cells (SCs) in the crypt stem cell (SC) niche, but how NECs are involved in regulation of SCs is unclear. We investigated NECs expressing somatostatin ...
  • Almquist,Zack W.; Bagozzi,Benjamin E. (The Public Library of Science, 11/29/16)
    Radical environmental groups and their members have a wide and varied agenda which often encompasses both local and global issues. In their efforts to call attention to environmental problems, communicate with like-minded ...
  • Yu, Yu; Ji, Lijuan; Le, Brandon H.; Zhai, Jixian; Chen, Jiayi; Lusche, Elizabeth; Gao, Lei; Liu, Chunyan; Cao, Xiaofeng; Mo, Beixin; Ma, Jinbiao; Meyers, Blake C.; Chen, Xuemei (Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2017-02-23)
    The degradation of small RNAs in plants and animals is associated with small RNA 30 truncation and 30 uridylation and thus relies on exonucleases and nucleotidyl transferases. ARGONAUTE (AGO) proteins associate with small ...
  • Takagi, Kimberly K.; Hunter, Kimberley S.; Cai, Wei-Jun; Joye, Samantha B. (Ecological Society of America, 2017-01-23)
    Nutrient and carbon dynamics in river ecosystems are shifting, and climate change is likely a driving factor; however, some previous studies indicate anthropogenic modification of natural resources may supersede the ...
  • Zivkovic, Milena Z.; Djuric, Sasa; Cuk, Ivan; Suzovic, Dejan; Jaric, Slobodan (DE GRUYTER OPEN LTD, 2017-03-13)
    The aims of the present study were to investigate the shape and strength of the force-velocity relationships observed in different functional movement tests and explore the parameters depicting force, velocity and ...
  • Hansen, Lars N.; Conrad, Clinton P.; Boneh, Yuval; Skemer, Philip; Warren, Jessica M.; Kohlstedt, David L. (AGU Publications, 2016-10-25)
    The significant viscous anisotropy that results from crystallographic alignment (texture) of olivine grains in deformed upper mantle rocks strongly influences a large variety of geodynamic processes. Our ability to explore ...
  • Richoz, Anne-RaphaeÈ lle; Quinn, Paul C.; Hillairet de Boisferon, Anne; Berger, Carole; Loevenbruck, Helène; Lewkowicz, David J.; Lee, Kang; Dole, Marjorie; Caldara, Roberto; Pascalis, Olivier (Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2017-01-06)
    Early multisensory perceptual experiences shape the abilities of infants to perform sociallyrelevant visual categorization, such as the extraction of gender, age, and emotion from faces. Here, we investigated whether ...
  • Xu, Fan; Gerlein, Luis Felipe; Ma, Xin; Haughn, Chelsea R.; Doty, Matthew F.; Cloutier, Sylvain G. (MDPI AG, 2015-04-21)
    The engineering of quantum dot solids with low defect concentrations and efficient carrier transport through a ligand strategy is crucial to achieve efficient quantum dot (QD) optoelectronic devices. Here, we study the ...
  • Hsiao, HaoYuan; Knarr, Brian A.; Higginson, Jill S.; Binder-Macleod, Stuart A. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2015-04-18)
    BACKGROUND: Propulsive force generation is critical to walking speed. Trialing limb angle and ankle moment are major contributors to increases in propulsive force during gait. For able-bodied individuals, trailing limb ...
  • Denemark, Robert A.; Gills, Barry K. (University Library System, University of Pittsburgh, 2015)
  • Worthington, Peter; Pochan, Darrin J.; Langhans, Sigrid A. (Frontiers Media S.A., 2015-04-20)
    Traditional two-dimensional (2D) cell culture systems have contributed tremendously to our understanding of cancer biology but have significant limitations in mimicking in vivo conditions such as the tumor microenvironment. ...
  • Heberling, Colin; Dhurjati, Prasad (MDPI AG, Basel, Switzerland, 2015-04-22)
    Autism spectrum disorders are a group of mental illnesses highly correlated with gastrointestinal dysfunction. Recent studies have shown that there may be one or more microbial “fingerprints” in terms of the composition ...
  • Gong, Ke; Fang, Qianrong; Gu, Shuang; Li, Sam Fong Yau; Yan, Yushan (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-08-17)
    As members of the redox-flow battery (RFB) family, nonaqueous RFBs can offer a wide range of working temperature, high cell voltage, and potentially high energy density. These key features make nonaqueous RFBs an important ...
  • Bernstein, E. Rachel; Geiger, Cathleen A.; DeLiberty, Tracy L.; Lemcke-Stampone, Mary D. (International Glaciological Society, 2015-10-01)
    This work evaluates two distinct calculations of central tendency for sea-ice thickness and quantifies the impact such calculations have on ice volume for the Southern Ocean. The first calculation, area-weighted average ...
  • Samluk, Jesse P.; Geiger, Cathleen A.; Weiss, Chester J. (International Glaciological Society, 2015-10-01)
    In this paper we explore simulated responses of electromagnetic (EM) signals relative to in situ field surveys and quantify the effects that different values of conductivity in sea ice have on the EM fields. We compute ...
  • Geiger, Cathleen A.; Müller, Hans-Reinhard; Samluk, Jesse P.; Bernstein, E. Rachel; Richter-Menge, Jacqueline A. (International Glaciological Society, 2015-10-01)
    We explore spatial aliasing of non-Gaussian distributions of sea-ice thickness. Using a heuristic model and >1000 measurements, we show how different instrument footprint sizes and shapes can cluster thickness distributions ...
  • Geiger, Cathleen A.; Wadhams, Peter; Müller, Hans-Reinhard; Richter-Menge, Jacqueline A.; Samluk, Jesse P.; DeLiberty, Tracy L.; Corradina, Victoria (International Glaciological Society, 2015-10-01)
    During late winter 2007, coincident measurements of sea ice were collected using various sensors at an ice camp in the Beaufort Sea, Canadian Arctic. Analysis of the archived data provides new insight into sea-ice isostasy ...
