Chronic kidney disease mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) describes the laboratory, bone and vascular abnormalities that exist in patients with CKD stages 3-5D and that may persist after transplantation. Persisting abno...
A major challenge of the post-genomics era is to define the connectivity of protein phosphorylation networks. Here, we quantitatively delineate the insulin signaling network in adipocytes by high-resolution mass spectrom...
Granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is a cytokine with the capacity to promote inflammation in a wide variety of infectious and inflammatory diseases. These conditions include allergic airway inflam...
Objectives: There are two commonly used fracture risk prediction tools FRAX�and Garvan Fracture RiskCalculator (GARVAN-FRC). The objective of this study was to investigate the utility of these tools in dailypractice.St...
Aim: Weight gain, obesity and metabolic disturbances in youth with psychosis are significant contributors to the health burden of people with psychosis, with a two- to threefold increase in rates compared with the genera...
Rapid bone loss after cardiac and lung transplantation results in an increased risk of osteoporotic fracture. This study examined the efficacy of treatment with calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3) in preventing bone lo...
Mutations in the SERPINA1 gene can cause deficiency in the circulating serine protease inhibitor alpha(1)-Antitrypsin (alpha(1)AT). alpha(1)AT deficiency is the major contributor to pulmonary emphysema and liver disease ...
Activated pancreatic stellate cells (PSCs) are responsible for the fibrotic matrix of chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. In vitro protocols examining PSC biology have usually involved PSCs cultured on plastic, a...
Inhibitor of differentiation (ID) proteins are key regulators of development and tumorigenesis. One member of this family, ID4, controls lineage commitment during mammary gland development by acting upstream of key devel...
Natural killer T cells are innate-like T cells that rapidly recognise pathogens and produce cytokines that can shape the ensuing immune response. Recently, IL-17-producing NKT cells have been identified in mice and human...
BACKGROUND: Criteria for mild cognitive impairment require objective evidence of a memory deficit but do not require objective evidence of memory decline. Application of these criteria may therefore result in the misclas...
The inactivation of the prolactin receptor gene by homologous recombination has made it possible to investigate the role of prolactin signaling in mammary gland development without resort to ablative surgery of the endoc...
