In utero exposure to maternal tobacco smoke and subsequent obesity, hypertension, and gestational diabetes among women in the MoBa Cohort
(The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2012)
Background: Environmental factors influencing the developmental origins of health and disease need to be identified and investigated. In utero exposure to tobacco smoke has been associated with obesity and a small increase ...
Exposure to Tobacco Smoke in Utero and Subsequent Plasma Lipids, ApoB, and CRP among Adult Women in the MoBa Cohort
(The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2012-11)
Background: Recent findings suggest that maternal smoking during pregnancy may play a role in the development of metabolic alterations in offspring during childhood. However, whether such exposure increases the risk of ...
450K epigenome-wide scan identifies differential DNA methylation in newborns related to maternal smoking during pregnancy
(The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2012-10)
Background: Epigenetic modifications, such as DNA methylation, due to in utero exposures may play a critical role in early programming for childhood and adult illness. Maternal smoking is a major risk factor for multiple ...
Dwarfism in mice lacking collagen-binding integrins alpha 2 beta 1 and alpha 11 beta 1 is caused by severely diminished IGF-1 levels
(The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2012-02)
Mice with a combined deficiency in the α2β1 and α11β1 integrins lack the major receptors for collagen I. These mutants are born with inconspicuous differences in size but develop dwarfism within the first 4 weeks of life. ...
Use of stable isotope dimethyl labeling coupled to selected reaction monitoring to enhance throughput by multiplexing relative quantitation of targeted proteins
(American Chemical Society, 2012)
In this manuscript, we present a proof-of-concept study for targeted relative protein quantitation workflow using chemical labeling in the form of dimethylation, coupled with selected reaction monitoring (dimethyl-SRM). ...
Electrical synapses between AII amacrine cells in the retina: Function and modulation
Adaptation enables the visual system to operate across a large range of background light intensities. There is evidence that one component of this adaptation is mediated by modulation of gap junctions functioning as ...
