  • Li, Xiangming; Sanneman, Joel D.; Harbidge, Donald G.; Zhou, Fei; Ito, Taku; Nelson, Raoul; Picard, Nicolas; Chambrey, Régine; Eladari, Dominique; Miesner, Tracy; Griffith, Andrew J.; Marcus, Daniel C.; Wangemann, Antje Philine (2013)
    Mutations of SLC26A4 are a common cause of human hearing loss associated with enlargement of the vestibular aqueduct. SLC26A4 encodes pendrin, an anion exchanger expressed in a variety of epithelial cells in the cochlea, ...
  • Kim, Kyunghee X.; Sanneman, Joel D.; Kim, Hyoung-Mi; Harbidge, Donald G.; Xu, Jie; Soleimani, Manoocher; Wangemann, Antje P.; Marcus, Daniel C. (2014)
    Several members of the SLC26 gene family have highly-restricted expression patterns in the auditory and vestibular periphery and mutations in mice of at least two of these (SLC26A4 and SLC26A5) lead to deficits in hearing ...
  • Shrestha, Tej B.; Seo, Gwi M.; Basel, Matthew T.; Kalita, Mausam; Wang, Hongwang; Villanueva, David; Pyle, Marla; Troyer, Deryl L.; Bossmann, Stefan H. (2012)
    We have transfected murine neural stem cells (NSCs) and rat umbilical cord matrix-derived stem cells (RUCMSCs) with a plasmid expressing gaussia luciferase (gLuc). These cells are engineered to secrete the luciferase. We ...
  • Pazgier, Marzena; Ericksen, Bryan; Ling, Minhua; Toth, Eric; Shi, Jishu N.; Li, Xiangdong; Beckley, Amy J.; Lan, Liqiong; Zou, Guozhang; Zhan, Changyou; Yuan, Weirong; Pozharski, Edwin; Lu, Wuyuan (2013)
    Cathelicidins form a family of small host defense peptides distinct from another class of cationic antimicrobial peptides, the defensins. They are expressed as large precursor molecules with a highly conserved pro-domain ...
  • Dawson, Harry D.; Loveland, Jane E.; Pascal, Géraldine; Sang, Yongming; Blecha, Frank (2013)
    Background: The domestic pig is known as an excellent model for human immunology and the two species share many pathogens. Susceptibility to infectious disease is one of the major constraints on swine performance, yet the ...
  • Pierucci-Alves, Fernando; Duncan, Cameron L.; Schultz, Bruce D. (2009)
    Testosterone induces and maintains prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2 (PTGS2, also known as cyclooxygenase 2) expression in vas deferens epithelial cells, but it remains unknown whether this has a physiological role in ...
  • Linde, Annika; Blecha, Frank; Melgarejo, Tonatiuh (2007)
    Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are archetypal pattern recognition receptors of immediate importance for an efficacious innate immune response. TLRs exhibit marked differential tissue activity and their levels within a discrete ...
  • Sang, Yongming; Ross, Christopher R.; Rowland, Raymond R. R.; Blecha, Frank (2008)
    Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is an RNA virus that initiates infection in pulmonary alveolar macrophages (PAMs), elicits weak immune responses, and establishes a persistent infection. To ...
  • López, Yelica; Lutjemeier, Barbara; Seshareddy, Kiran; Trevino, Elizabeth M.; Hageman, K. Sue; Musch, Timothy I.; Borgarelli, Michele; Weiss, Mark L. (2013)
    The therapeutic effect of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) following myocardial infarction (MI) is small. This may be due to differences in cellular sources and donor age, route of administration, in vitro cellular ...
