    Howard Dang
    The University of Texas Health Science Center, Department of Community Dentistry, San Antonio, Texas, USA
    Dev Dyn 238:724-31. 2009
    ..Taken together, these data suggest that Notch signaling is critical for normal salivary gland cell growth and differentiation...

    Department of Community Dentistry, The University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, TX, USA
    Differentiation 76:546-57. 2008
    ..Up-regulation of ERKs and p38, and the activation of these MAPKs by up-regulated EGF and beta2-ARs, may be important signaling components underlying glandular atrophy and subsequent regeneration...
