    Department of Internal Medicine, Centre for Comparative Respiratory Biology and Medicine, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, USA
    Integr Cancer Ther 8:321-8. 2009
    ..The present data suggest that transcriptional regulation of Nr1d1 by CS may affect circadian rhythmicity and thus may play a complementary role in CS-induced lung respiratory tract pathobiology and/or lung tumorigenesis...

    Vihas T Vasu
    Department of Internal Medicine, Center for Comparative Respiratory Biology and Medicine, Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility, University of California, Davis, California 95616, USA
    Inhal Toxicol 22:1-16. 2010
    ..The expressions of O(3) sensitive genes-Timp1, Areg, Birc5 and Tnc-were seen to be further modulated by AT status. The present study reveals AT modulation of adaptive response of lung genome to O(3) exposure...

    Vihas T Vasu
    Department of Internal Medicine, University of California, Davis, 95616, USA
    Free Radic Res 43:106-16. 2009
    ..Since the neuromuscular deficits of ATTP-KO mice appear to be similar to those of patients with ATTP mutations, it is suggested that over-expression of sln and uchl1 may also contribute to AT-sensitive ataxia in humans...
