- Structure and expression of a novel filarial gene for glia maturation factorL X Liu
Harvard Thorndike Laboratory, Division of Infectious Diseases, Beth Israel Hospital, Boston, MA 02115, USA
Gene 186:1-5. 1997..We speculate that BmGMF may function as a stage-specific neuroglial growth factor...
- Intravascular filarial parasites inhibit platelet aggregation. Role of parasite-derived prostanoidsL X Liu
Charles A Dana Research Institute, Department of Medicine, Beth Israel Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts 02215
J Clin Invest 89:1113-20. 1992..These results indicate that microfilariae inhibit platelet aggregation, via mechanisms that may include the elaboration of anti-aggregatory eicosanoids...
- Regulation of DAF-2 receptor signaling by human insulin and ins-1, a member of the unusually large and diverse C. elegans insulin gene familyS B Pierce
Department of Molecular Biology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Department of Genetics, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02114, USA
Genes Dev 15:672-86. 2001..Of five other ins genes tested, the only other one bearing a predicted C peptide also antagonizes daf-2 signaling, whereas four ins genes without a C peptide do not, indicating functional diversity within the ins family...
- Binding of HIV-1 Nef to a novel thioesterase enzyme correlates with Nef-mediated CD4 down-regulationL X Liu
Institut Cochin de Genetique Moleculaire, INSERM U332, Universite Paris V, 24 rue du Faubourg Saint Jacques, 75014 Paris, France
J Biol Chem 272:13779-85. 1997..These observations suggest that this human thioesterase is a cellular mediator of Nef-induced CD4 down-regulation...
- A reverse genetic analysis of components of the Toll signaling pathway in Caenorhabditis elegansN Pujol
Laboratoire de Genetique et Physiologie du Developpement, Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale Centre National pour la Recherche Scientifique Université de la Mediterranée, 13288, Marseille, France
Curr Biol 11:809-21. 2001..C. elegans possesses structural homologs of components of this pathway, and this observation raises the possibility that a Toll pathway might also function in nematodes to trigger defense mechanisms or to control development...
