  1. The objective of this study was to develop an anthropometry-based prediction model for the assessment of bone mineral content (BMC) in children. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) was used to measure whole-body BMC in a heterogeneous cohort of…
  2. The role of Z-DNA-binding proteins in vivo is explored in yeast. A conformation-specific yeast one-hybrid system is made in which formation of Z-DNA is studied near a minimal promoter site where it can be stabilized by negative supercoiling in…
  3. The life cycle of bacterial cells consists of repeated elongation, septum formation, and division. Before septum formation, a division ring called the Z-ring, which is made of a filamentous tubulin analog, FtsZ, is seen at the mid cell. Together…
  4. PURPOSE: The diversity of pediatric dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) bone mineral density (BMD) reference databases raises questions as to whether they are interchangeable in their application. This study examined the comparability of BMD…
  5. Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic mechanism of regulation that restrains the expression of a small subset of mammalian genes to one parental allele. The reason for the targeting of these ∼80 genes by imprinting remains uncertain. We show that…
  6. Not all asthma can be adequately controlled, despite the use of high-dose inhaled corticosteroids. Because cysteinyl-leukotrienes (Cys-LT) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of asthma, we hypothesized that the leukotriene receptor antagonist…
  7. The nervous system consists of diverse subtypes of neurons, whose identities must be specified during development. One important aspect of the differentiation program of neurons is the expression of the appropriate set of genes controlling axon…
  8. Cathepsins B and L contribute to Ebola virus (EBOV) entry into Vero cells and mouse embryonic fibroblasts. However, the role of cathepsins in EBOV-infection of human dendritic cells (DCs), important targets of infection in vivo, remains undefined.…
  9. Shiga toxins (Stxs) and ricin initiate damage to host cells by cleaving a single adenine residue on the alpha-sarcin loop of the 28S ribosomal RNA. This molecular insult results in a cascade of intracellular events termed the ribotoxic stress…
  10. Multiple myeloma (MM) remains incurable, and new drugs with novel mechanisms of action are still needed. In this report, we have analyzed the action of Zalypsis, an alkaloid analogous to certain natural marine compounds, in MM. Zalypsis turned out…
  11. The 2007 Zambia Demographic Health Survey (ZDHS) is a nationally representative survey of 7,146 women age 15-49 and 6,500 men age 15-59. The 2007 ZDHS is the fourth comprehensive survey conducted in Zambia as part of the Demographic and Health…
  12. The recovery of miombo woodlands following clearance for woodfuel is being monitored at four sites in central Zambia. Charcoal production removes 50% of the total woody biomass and the woodland regenerates from a pool of stunted old seedlings and…
  13. BACKGROUND: TB and HIV form a deadly synergy in much of the developing world, especially Africa. Interventions to reduce the impact of these diseases at community level are urgently needed. This paper presents the design of a community randomised…
