  1. Structural Study of the Reaction of Methylzinc Amino Alcoholates with Oxygen

    Organometallics 29(15):3318 (2010)

  2. Parent-to-parent support for parents with children who are deaf or hard of hearing: a conceptual framework.

    American Journal of Audiology 23(4):437 (2014) PMID 25281845

    Parent-to-parent support for parents with children who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH) is identified as an important component of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs for children with hearing loss. The specific aim of this review was to identify the constructs and components...
  3. Parent-of-origin-specific allelic associations among 106 genomic loci for age at menarche.

    Nature 514(7520):92 (2014) PMID 25231870 PMCID PMC4185210

    We found robust evidence (P < 5 × 10(-8)) for 123 signals at 106 genomic loci associated with age at menarche. Many loci were associated with other pubertal traits in both sexes, and there was substantial overlap with genes implicated in body mass index and various diseases, including rare disorders...
  4. Genetic association study of QT interval highlights role for calcium signaling pathways in myocardial repolarization.

    Nature Genetics 46(8):826 (2014) PMID 24952745 PMCID PMC4124521

    We identified 35 common variant loci associated with QT interval that collectively explain ∼8-10% of QT-interval variation and highlight the importance of calcium regulation in myocardial repolarization. Rare variant analysis of 6 new QT interval-associated loci in 298 unrelated probands with LQTS i...
  5. The "Spot Sign" secondary to a ruptured lenticulostriate artery aneurysm.

    Clinical Imaging 38(4):508 (2014) PMID 24629789

    We report a case of an 81-year-old man who presented with right basal ganglia hemorrhage and the "Spot Sign" on computed tomography angiography. Conventional angiography subsequently revealed a lenticulostriate artery aneurysm within the hematoma, which was treated with surgical clipping. This case...
  6. Mycophenolate antagonizes IFN-γ-induced catagen-like changes via β-catenin activation in human dermal papilla cells and hair follicles.

    International Journal of Molecular Sciences 15(9):16800 (2014) PMID 25247578 PMCID PMC4200814

    We investigate the influence of mycophenolate (MPA), an immunosuppressant, on the proliferation of human dermal papilla cells (hDPCs) and on the growth of human hair follicles following catagen induction with interferon (IFN)-γ. IFN-γ was found to reduce β-catenin, an activator of hair follicle grow...
  7. Synthesis of heterobimetallic tungsten acetylacetonate/alkoxide complexes and their application as molecular precursors to metal tungstates

    Polyhedron 59:85 (2013)

    The structures of M2W2(O)2(acac)2(OMe)10 [M=Co (1), Ni (2), Mg (3), Zn (4)] have been determined and 1, 3 have been shown to act as single-source precursors for MWO4 materials.
  8. Antimicrobial surface grafted thermally responsive PNIPAM-co-ALA nano-gels.

    Chemical Communications 47(48):12777 (2011) PMID 22046590

    Thermally responsive Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) co-allylamine (PNIPAM-co-ALA) nano-gels were synthesised and grafted onto non-woven polypropylene. Silver nitrate was incorporated into the nano-gels in their expanded state and their antimicrobial properties tested. Bacterial growth was measured befo...
  9. Test implementation to evaluate technologies for safe lunar landing

    IEEE Aerospace Conference. Proceedings :1 (2011)

    From June 20 through July 7 of 2009, the Autonomous Landing and Hazard Avoidance Technology (ALHAT) Exploration Technology Development Program carried out an aircraft field test over Moon like terrains to assess the use of sensors and algorithms being developed for autonomous, safe lunar landing. The...
  10. Association of serum adipocytokines with hepatic steatosis and fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis C.

    Digestion 83(1-2):32 (2011) PMID 20847561

    We profiled several adipokines, cytokines, and related soluble molecules in 99 HCV patients and analyzed their potential associations with hepatic steatosis and fibrosis. Serum leptin and IL-1RA were significantly higher in HCV genotype 1 as compared to genotype 3. On the other hand, serum resistin,...
