    Human articular cartilage can degrade, losing functional quality and eventually exposing bone surfaces; when significantly advanced, this cartilage degradation can be diagnosed as osteoarthritis (OA). Currently, knee OA can be diagnosed only when the disease is advanced and the patient is suffering from pain. There is no cure for knee OA, nor are there prevent preventative therapies; current treatment strategies relieve the pain of OA or completely replace the knee joint. To evaluate potential therapies and treatments, we need a method that can identify and measure changes to cartilage prior to the onset of degradation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a potentially powerful tool to non-invasively evaluate the progression of knee OA by mapping MR image parameters to molecular and material properties that are known to change with disease. The goal of this dissertation was to determine MR image parameters that can be used to evaluate the progression of OA. We examined the biphasic and viscoelastic models of cartilage to determine cartilage material properties from indentation creep tests. We compared initial elastic modulus and cartilage macromolecules to MRI parameters, specifically T2 and T1rho relaxation times and T1rho dispersion. We determined that a predictive model based on T1rho relaxation time maps, which accounts for T2 relaxation time and the effects of age, may estimate longitudinal trends in GAG content in the same person. In addition, a simple T1rho dispersion estimate has the potential for substantial clinical impact by measuring changes in cartilage initial elastic modulus and macromolecules non-invasively. This work is an important step toward developing clinical methods for evaluating cartilage functional condition, and in turn, to advance work towards preventing and treating knee OA.

    Biotherapeutics have regained their reputation as drug candidates in the drug market due to their remarkable specificity; however, the broader clinical use of biotherapeutics is often challenged by poor pharmacological properties. Therefore, there is enormous interest in developing peptidomimetics as alternative therapeutic options. Inspired by the first successful example of peptide-based antivirals, Fuzeon®, similar strategies to develop antivirals have been applied to many other viruses that share class I fusion protein-mediated viral fusion. Using human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (hRSV) as a model system, the second chapter of this dissertation demonstrates our successful effort to develop a protein-based assay using a 5-Helix Bundle (5HB) fluorescence polarization (FP) as a screening platform for hRSV fusion inhibitors. The remaining chapters in this thesis all utilize the 5HB-based FP assay to evaluate the potential of short peptides and their peptoid-based peptidomimetics as antivirals to control hRSV infections. The third chapter proposes that NMEGylation, an alternative to PEGylation that uses a covalent attachment of an oligo-N-methoxyethylglycine (NMEG) chain, may enhance the bioavailability of short therapeutic peptides. The incorporation of optimized numbers of NMEG monomers along with a glycine linker increases the solubility and serum stability greatly, suggesting that NMEGylation may open a new opportunity to use peptoids as modifiers of therapeutically attractive peptides and proteins. The fourth chapter demonstrates how our novel approach combining alanine, proline, and sarcosine scans can be useful to determine peptoid-replaceable peptide residues and further proves the usefulness of the combined scan strategy using the C20 peptide as a parent peptide. Furthermore, two different methods to promote the [Alpha]-helical conformation of C20 analogues by structurally constraining the parent C20 peptide using "hydrocarbon-stapling" or "clicking" are described. We report a constrained C20 analogue with improved binding affinity, and discuss our structural investigations of the constrained C20 analogues using CD spectroscopy. The studies in the fifth chapter show that phage display can be used for identifying novel hRSV entry inhibitors that are not derived from the original sequence of the hRSV fusion protein F like the peptides described in chapters 2, 3, and 4. We report two 12-mer peptides with a low micromolar binding affinity to the 5HB, and ongoing efforts are aimed towards better understanding the interaction of the 12-mer peptides with the 5HB by co-crystallizing the peptides and 5HB. Finally, the dissertation concludes with a sixth chapter that summarizes the current status of each research chapter. In addition, future prospects, new directions, and potential applications of the findings in this dissertation are presented in this chapter.

    This dissertation describes a general method for identifying and roughly quantifying the metabolites that are produced by symbiotic dinoflagellates and transferred to cnidarian hosts. I developed a system of rapid filtration and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to identify these compounds in the anemone tissue and dinoflagellates separately. I used 13C-sodium bicarbonate to label compounds produced from newly-fixed carbon; the principal compound detected in the animal was glucose. I developed a way to visualize these and other large GC-MS datasets using open-source software. I also built tools for analyzing Ultra-High-Throughput-Sequencing (UHTS) data, and these were useful in the de novo assembly of the Aiptasia pallida transcriptome. One tool I developed compares each read to each other read using a MapReduce framework to merge near-duplicate reads and reduce redundancy in the dataset. In addition, our lab sequenced symbiotic animals and therefore often worked with pools of sequences from multiple organisms. I developed a tool for identifying which transcript sequence was produced by which organism in a symbiotic ecosystem: it was 99% accurate on high-quality validation data.

    Autoimmune diseases are painful and debilitating conditions which affect millions of people in the United States and all over the world. At present such conditions are often difficult to diagnose and many have no satisfactory treatment. Given the wealth and availability of genomic data such as genetic variation and gene expression, computational integrative methods provide a powerful opportunity to improve human health by refining the current knowledge about diagnostics, therapeutics and disease mechanism. For instance numerous genome-wide association studies (GWAS) performed across autoimmune diseases, provide a great opportunity to study disease relationships based on genetic variation. Comparing such profiles allows us to quantify allele-specific pair-wise relationships between these diseases to find two broad clusters of autoimmune disease. We furthermore find that certain polymorphisms, toggle SNPs, predispose individuals to one class of autoimmune disease but are protective against the other class. While studying allelic differences between diseases may point to key novel disease-specific genes and pathways, studying similarities across diseases might lead to discovery of common therapeutic options as well as common disease mechanisms. In particular we integrate genetic variation data across several studies to discover the role of a complement factor in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis. Gene expression microarrays are also often used to study human diseases as well as the perturbation of biological systems by drug compounds providing an opportunity to discover novel relationships between diseases and drugs. We present a systematic computational method to predict novel therapeutic indications based on gene expression. We tested our top prediction for Crohn's disease (CD) using the rat model of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and successfully demonstrated the predicted efficacy of an anti-seizure drug in treating disease. In this work, we have showed that integrative computational tools can be used to improve diagnostics, learn more about disease mechanism and discover novel therapeutics for autoimmune disease.

    Many cellular processes including cell-cell communications and regulated membrane transport are mediated by membrane proteins and depend upon the ability of lipid membranes to be a differentially permeable barrier. However, the roles and function of membrane proteins are often difficult to study due to the complexity of the native membranes and lack of reliable and flexible artificial model lipid membranes. Supported lipid bilayers (SLB) have been used as a model system to study biological membrane behavior and the structure and function of membrane proteins and receptors in a simpler context apart from the complex cellular environment. Although SLBs have the advantages of simple formation, easy handling and are well-suited for investigation by a suite of surface sensitive methods due to their planar geometry, the close proximity of the lower leaflet to the solid support often leads to unfavorable interactions with integral membrane proteins. This causes distortion of the protein conformation and possible loss of its reactivity and function. Moreover, this interaction with the substrate often traps proteins and reduces their mobility in the membranes. Recognizing this limitation, we have developed a new model membrane architecture in which the DNA-tethered lipid bilayer is either to fixed DNA on a surface or to laterally mobile DNA displayed on a supported bilayer. This separates the lipid membranes from surface interactions and provides a more favorable environment for integral membrane protein with large globular domains. With mobile DNA hybrid tethers, stable tethered bilayers were made with specific lipid composition, while those with fixed tethers are stable regardless of membrane composition. The mobile tethers between a tethered and a supported lipid bilayer offer a particularly interesting architecture for studying the dynamics of membrane-membrane interactions. By careful choice of composition, improved stability was obtained and we can investigate the lateral segregation of DNA hybrids when different lengths are present. Based on a theoretical model, the effects of population, length and affinity of DNA complexes are simulated and described. This model system captures some of the essential physics of synapse formation and is a step toward understanding lipid membrane behavior in a cell-to-cell junction. To demonstrate the excellent environment provided by DNA-tethered membranes for studying transmembrane proteins free from any surface interactions, the behavior of a transmembrane protein, the photosynthetic reaction center, reconstituted in the DNA-tethered membranes is investigated. Inspired by DNA-mediated membrane fusion studies of our group, we applied the DNA-machinery to achieve fusion of small (~ 100 nm) proteoliposomes for delivery of membrane proteins to either giant vesicles or DNA-tethered planar lipid membrane patches. The diffusion behavior of delivered proteins is measured and compared with those in supported bilayers. Also, the protein activity and orientation before and after fusion is analyzed. This will offer a feasible method to incorporate intact membrane proteins to already formed model membranes. In addition, the behavior of proteins during the fusion event will provide insight into the mechanism of DNA-mediated lipid membrane fusion. The geometry of our model membrane system directly mimics that of a neuronal synapse. We expect that this architecture will be readily transferable to other model membrane fusion systems, including systems using reconstituted SNARE proteins. Consequently, it will be of considerable interest to a wide range of researchers.

    Developing novel therapies for gram-negative bacterial infections and glioblastoma multiforme I. cloning and characterization of the guadinomine biosynthetic gene cluster II. developing a novel chemo-sensitizing agent to treat glioblastoma. This thesis explores the development of novel therapies for the treatment of two complicated problems: Gram-negative bacterial infections and glioblastoma multiforme, the most aggressive form of brain cancer. Part I of the thesis summarizes the current body of knowledge regarding guadinomines, their biosynthesis and implications for developing novel anti-infective agents. Part II of the thesis summarizes the development of the small molecule, ERW1227B, and its ability to sensitize glioblastoma cells to standard therapies. Part I. Guadinomines are a recently discovered family of anti-infective compounds produced by Streptomyces sp. K01-0509. They are the first microbial metabolites shown to inhibit the Type III Secretion System (TTSS) of Gram-negative bacteria. The TTSS is required for the virulence of many pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria including Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Yersinia spp., Chlamydia spp., Vibrio spp., and Pseudomonas spp. Inhibition of the TTSS can mitigate virulence which is important considering that Gram-negative bacteria infect millions each year, leading to considerable morbidity and mortality. The guadinomine (gdn) biosynthetic gene cluster has been sequenced, and encodes a chimeric multimodular polyketide synthase -- nonribosomal peptide synthetase spanning 26 open reading frames and 51.2 kb. It also encodes enzymes responsible for the biosynthesis of the unusual aminomalonyl-ACP extender unit and the signature carbamoylated cyclic guanidine. Its identity was established by genetic inactivation of the cluster, as well as heterologous expression and analysis of enzymes in the biosynthetic pathway. Identifying the guadinomine gene cluster provides critical insight into the biosynthesis of these biologically important compounds. Part II. Glioblastomas display variable phenotypes that include increased drug-resistance associated with enhanced migratory and anti-apoptotic characteristics. These shared characteristics contribute to failure of clinical treatment regimens. Identification of novel compounds that both promote cell death and impair cellular motility is a logical strategy to develop more effective clinical protocols. Previously, we described the ability of the small molecule, KCC009, a tissue transglutaminase inhibitor, to sensitize glioblastoma cells to chemotherapy. In the current study, we synthesized a series of related compounds that show variable ability to promote cell death and impair motility in glioblastomas, irrespective of their ability to inhibit TG2. Each compound has a 3-bromo-4,5-dihydroisoxazole component that presumably reacts with a nucleophilic cysteine thiol residue in one (or more) target protein(s) that have affinity for the small molecule. Our studies focused on the effects of the compound, ERW1227B. Treatment of glioblastoma cells with ERW1227B was associated with both down-regulation of the PI-3 kinase/Akt pathway, which enhanced cell death; as well as disruption of focal adhesions and intracellular actin fibers, which impaired cellular mobility. Bioassays as well as time-lapse photography of glioblastoma cells treated with ERW1227B showed cell death and rapid loss of cellular motility. Mice studies with in vivo glioblastoma models demonstrated the ability of ERW1227B to sensitize tumor cells to cell death after treatment with either chemotherapy or radiation. The above findings identify ERW1227B as a potential novel therapeutic agent in the treatment of glioblastomas.

    Understanding the general laws of an effective system for the transport of substances in cells is an important goal of systems and synthetic biology and will help us to answer why the transport subsystem of a cell is arranged as it is. In addition, the construction of models for optimizing transport systems is of considerable importance in the early stages in the development of a functioning protocell. The aim of this book is to describe the latest techniques for the calculation of the optimal parameters of the transport subsystem of a cell at its maximum efficiency.

    Coral reefs are animal-built structures that provide habitats for a disproportionately large number of marine species relative to the small percentage of the ocean that they cover. Corals, and some other cnidarians such as anemones, host dinoflagellates within the cells of their gastrodermal tissue. The dinoflagellates fix carbon photosynthetically and transfer it to the host; the dinoflagellates can provide up to 90% of the hosts' metabolic requirements. The symbiosis between the cnidarian host and its dinoflagellate symbiont is therefore the trophic foundation on which coral reef are built. Despite its importance, the molecular mechanisms controlling symbiosis establishment, maintenance, and breakdown remain poorly understood. Our lab is working to further develop the small sea anemone, Aiptasia, as a model system for studying cnidarian-dinoflagellate symbiosis. To this end, I sequenced the transcriptome of aposymbiotic Aiptasia, of symbiotic Aiptasia, and of the dinoflagellate symbionts. I then used these resources to perform gene-expression analysis comparing symbiotic and aposymbiotic anemones, which provided numerous testable biological hypotheses about both the structural basis of the symbiosis and the downstream metabolic effects of metabolite transfer to the host. These resources should serve as the foundation for future experiments in our laboratory and more widely in the field of coral biology.

    Embryonic development is a remarkable program of cell proliferation, migration, and differentiation that transforms a single fertilized egg into a complex multicellular organism. This process depends on spatial and temporal control of gene function, and deciphering the molecular mechanisms that underlie pattern formation requires novel methods for perturbing gene expression with similar precision. Synthetic reagents can help meet this demand, and in this thesis I describe the development and application of caged morpholino (cMO) oligonucleotides for inactivating genes in zebrafish and other optically transparent organisms with spatiotemporal control simply by irradiating embryonic tissues with a focused light beam. In chapter 1 I provide an overview of the zebrafish model system of vertebrate development and survey the capabilities and limitations of various oligonucleotide-based technologies for perturbing RNA function and tracking RNA expression in zebrafish. I examine various light-gated oligonucleotide technologies that exploit the optical transparency of zebrafish embryos, including cMOs, for achieving spatiotemporal control of RNA function. In chapter 2 we describe the initial synthesis of a cMO targeting expression of the no tail a (ntla) transcription factor. By permitting spatiotemporal gene regulation in zebrafish embryos, the ntla cMO was used to make initial observations into the time-dependent role of this gene in notochord formation. In chapter 3 we report optimized methods for the design and synthesis of hairpin cMOs, incorporating a dimethoxynitrobenzyl (DMNB)-based bifunctional linker that permits cMO assembly in only three steps from commercially available reagents. Using this simplified procedure, we have systematically prepared cMOs with differing structural configurations and investigated how the in vitro thermodynamic properties of these reagents correlate with their in vivo activities. Through these studies, I have established general principles for cMO design and successfully applied them to several developmental genes. Our optimized synthetic and design methodologies have also enabled us to prepare a next-generation cMO that contains a bromohydroxyquinoline (BHQ)-based linker for two-photon uncaging. Collectively, these advances established the generality of cMO technologies to facilitate the application of these chemical probes in vivo for functional genomic studies. Finally, in chapter 4 we illustrate the utility of the cMO technology in isolating spatiotemporally-distinct functions of transcription factors -- genes that play diverse roles during embryonic development, with each controlling multiple cellular states in a spatially and temporally defined manner. Resolving the dynamic transcriptional profiles that underlie these patterning processes is essential for understanding embryogenesis at the molecular level; however, probing in vivo gene function with comparable spatiotemporal precision has been a technological challenge. To address this need, I have integrated cMOs with similarly caged fluorophores, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), and microarray technologies. Using this approach, I have dynamically profiled the No tail-a (Ntla)-dependent transcriptome at different stages of zebrafish mesoderm development, discovering discrete sets of genes that are associated with either notochord cell fate commitment or subsequent changes in cell function. Our studies elucidated the roles of several Ntla-regulated genes in notochord development and demonstrated the activation of multiple transcriptomes within a cell lineage by a single transcription factor.

    The ability to generate robust quantitative high-throughput protein abundance estimates directly from clinical samples would be useful for translational biomedical research. Knowing the protein content and abundance of a clinical sample would enable, for example, effective biomarker discovery, risk stratification of patient outcomes, and the ability to better understand disease mechanisms. Mass spectrometry has emerged as a powerful tool in the high-throughput measurement of proteins from human tissues and fluids. We are now beginning to have access to proteomics data of the coverage (hundreds to thousands of proteins), scale (tens to hundreds of samples), and throughput (a few days to weeks per experiment) to bring mass spectrometry proteomics to the study of clinical questions. In this work, we discuss methods for quantitation of peptide and protein abundance from mass spectrometry proteomics data. We apply our approaches to identify key proteins that are differentially expressed in the urine of kidney transplant patients with acute rejection. We also investigate the response of the human plasma proteome to severe burn injury. We characterize the protein composition of T-cells, monocytes, and neutrophils of trauma patients, healthy controls, and stimulated cells, and compare information content of proteomics data from these cell populations with gene expression data from similar samples. Finally, we discuss a novel metric for scoring normalization algorithms from mixture titration quality control experiments, and we apply this metric to proteomics and transcriptomics data. Through the methods for quantitation of peptides and proteins, application of proteomics to different clinical questions, and integration of proteomics with other high-throughput data, we demonstrate the utility of mass spectrometry based proteomics to the study of human biofluids in human disease research.

    Trauma patients require rapid diagnosis and treatment of hemorrhage. In the hospital, experienced sonographers can reliably diagnose vascular injury using duplex ultrasound. In trauma settings, such as the battlefield, a portable ultrasound device with an automated algorithm to detect bleeding would be useful for medics. Thus, an increasing interest in computer-aided bleed detection led to efforts in quantifying sonographic signatures of abnormalities at the site of vascular injury. However, since trauma patients often present with large areas of injury, there is a need to develop and evaluate bleed detection strategies for ultrasound that more efficiently assess a large vascular tree. The goal of this Ph.D. research dissertation is to address this need. The studies primarily focused on the upper extremity vasculature, specifically the brachial bifurcation, because the leading cause of preventable deaths due to vascular trauma has been exsanguinations from extremity injuries. The overall approach was to characterize normal blood flow with a well-established power law model and identify flows that deviate from the model. The power law states that blood flow is proportional to the vessel diameter raised to a power index k, where k is defined by the bifurcation geometry. A bleed detection metric, called the "flow split deviation" (FSD), was defined to quantify the flow deviations from the power law. Validation of this approach was undertaken in four steps. The first involved demonstrating that the power law model appropriately describes the normal brachial bifurcation and flows in man. The utility of the bleed metric was then evaluated with 3D computational models of bleeds. Finally, the proposed detection algorithm was applied on the early proof of concept humans in arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) of dialysis patients and in in vivo rabbit bleed models. A study with normal human subjects was used to determine that the best-fit k for the brachial bifurcation was 2.75, which is in agreement with other vasculatures previously studied. A k=2.75 power law was then shown to adequately predict forearm blood flows for both resting and exercise physiological states. The correlation coefficient R between predicted and measured normal flows was 0.98. Computational models suggested that FSD was a good indicator of the severity of bleed downstream from the bifurcation. In the patient case study, the bleed metric easily distinguished between normal arms and those with newly placed wrist AVFs, which caused on average an order of magnitude increase in flow deviations. Introduction of different femoral bleed rates in rabbits demonstrated good sensitivity and specificity of the bleed metric when applied to moderate lower extremity bleeds. Bifurcation FSDs can serve as a quantitative signature of bleeding and, moreover, as a strategic way to survey large vascular trees by following abnormal branch points to the likely source of hemorrhage. This approach can complement other quantitative sonographic methods to create a comprehensive, automated, ultrasound-based algorithm for vascular trauma detection.

    Astrocytes constitute more than half of the human brain, yet their functions have yet to be fully elucidated largely due to a lack of a good and pure in vitro culture system. The inability to purify and culture brain astrocytes has long hindered studies of their function. Although astrocyte progenitor cells can be cultured from neonatal brain, culture of more differentiated mature astrocytes from postnatal brain has not previously been possible. Here I report a new method for the prospective purification of astrocytes by immunopanning (IP-astrocytes) and have used this method to investigate several fundamental properties, functions of astrocytes and neuron-glial interactions. I show that these highly purified astrocytes, like neurons, undergo apoptosis in culture, but that vascular cells as well as exogenous HBEGF and Wnt7a strongly promote their survival in serum-free culture. Similarly, I found that developing astrocytes in vivo undergo apoptosis and that the vast majority of surviving astrocytes in vivo contact blood vessels and hypothesise that developing astrocytes may normally be matched to blood vessels by competing for a limited supply of vascular trophic factors. In contrast to the more traditional neonatal astrocyte cultures prepared via a method developed by McCarthy and de Vellis (1980) (MD-astrocytes), the gene profiles and functions of the purified postnatal astrocytes in serum-free culture much more closely resembled that of astrocytes in vivo. These astrocytes also strongly promoted synapse formation and function. I have also identified genes that are induced by serum and show that serum exposure to astrocytes causes massive and irreversible changes of gene expression as well as astrocyte function. In addition, I have highlighted several features of MD-astrocytes that are different from IP-astrocytes. Together, the data suggests that I have developed a culture system that is more representative of the in vivo state. This culture system will be of interest to a broad range of neuroscientists as it provides a simplified and tractable system to study the functions and properties of astrocytes both in the normal and diseased states.

    Studying the effects of gene expression in biological systems has traditionally been undertaken by measuring phenotypic response at a limited number of expression levels. Typically the effects of gene expression are assayed at a high level of overexpression and compared to physiological levels of expression; however, many examples exist in which the level of gene expression greatly affects the resulting cellular phenotypes. Of particular interest for our purposes is the interplay between oncogenes in driving tumorigenesis and cancer progression. For example, oncogene H-Ras is capable of both enhancing cellular proliferation at intermediate levels expression levels (doses) and causing cell cycle arrest and senescence at high expression levels. In order to more thoroughly investigate such behavior we have created a set of tools for measuring dose-dependent effects of gene expression. These tools consist of promoter library to drive wide range gene expression, single-cell proliferation measurements, and data analysis methods to calculate correlation curves between gene expression level and phenotype response. The system is designed for cell-by-cell measuring of both expression level and phenotype response by flow cytometry. This approach allows for full dose experiments to be performed in a single heterogeneous culture with individual cells accessing different expression levels for a given phenotype. Because we are interested in studying the cell biology and genetics of tumor cells, measuring the phenotype of proliferation rate was of particular interest. To aid in further investigation of proliferation rate response to gene overexpression a genetic proliferation reporter was developed. This reporter utilizes the cell cycle-dependent activity of the E2F class of transcription factors, which are active during the G1/S transition. The highly stable fluorescent proteins EGFP and mCherry are expressed from both an E2F-responsive and constitutive promoter, respectively. The ratio of fluorescence levels correlates to proliferation rate in a variety of cell lines, matching predictions made initially by computational model. Finally, given a culture containing expression of a gene or combination of genes by the promoter library and phenotype measurement, the data collected from those cells must be analyzed to determine a correlation curve representing the dose response of the phenotype to level of expression of the genes of interest. In order to calculate this curve from the flow cytometry data several empirical analysis methods were evaluated. We determined the locally weighted scatter plot smoothing (LOWESS) curve fitting method to be best for our purposes of fitting the dose-response curves. As the LOWESS fits of flow cytometry data represented a technical hurdle to performing the dose-response experiments a custom software package was created to allow for easy implementation of the constitutive promoter library for studying dose-dependent behavior. The result is a set of biological and computational tools that allow for high throughput evaluation of gene dose effects. Further effort has been undertaken to move the system to evaluate multiple genes simultaneously, with the ultimate goal of being able to measure genetic cooperation.

    Cancer arises from the alteration of genes and the deregulation of the inherent control mechanisms existing with a cell. Cancer progression is the result of several of these genes or pathways being altered. Unfortunately, its analysis is not as straightforward as identifying a handful of discrete, independent mutational events occurring within a cell. Rather, these genes, pathways, and other regulatory elements are interconnected. Altering the expression level (dose) of one gene can have direct and indirect effects on many additional genes/pathways. Furthermore, combinations of genes can interact to have collaborative or antagonistic effects that are greater than or less than the sum of their individual contributions. It is not enough to study the effects of single genes/pathways at a few discrete expression levels. To this end, we have developed genetic tools that allow for controlling gene expression over a full range. Controlling gene expression at the level of transcription allowed for a 40-fold range of expression to be investigated. However, the range in expression of the transcriptionally controlled system varied across cell lines. Expanding beyond this system, we have turned to controlling gene expression at the level of translation. Using translational control elements, we were able to varying gene expression over a 200 -- 300-fold range. Furthermore, the translational control system was shown to be consistent across six different cell lines and with every transgene that has been tested to date. To address the fact that cancer progression is a multi-faceted event, we developed a system that would allow observation of the effects resulting from the interactions of multiple genes. By using retroviral vectors equipped with fluorescent protein fusions, we successfully derived a system that has the capacity to interrogate up to three genes of interest within a single culture of cells. This single culture makes it logistically feasible to study such large combinations of gene dosage levels. This single culture is heterogeneous in expression for each of the transgenes introduced; and by utilizing flow cytometry, the precise dosage level of each transgene can be correlated to measureable phenotypes at the single-cell level. To demonstrate how the tools we have developed can be utilized to quantitatively assess gene-dosage profiles, we ectopically controlled the expression of various mutant forms of the oncogenic version of H-Ras (H-RasG12V) in both murine fibroblast and pre-B cells. We chose to study proliferation as a measurable phenotypic read-out. In NIH/3T3 fibroblasts we observed a maximum in proliferation at low levels of expression of H-RasG12V. A mutant version, H-RasG12V T35S, which is only able to signal down the MAPK pathway, exhibited maximal proliferation at intermediate expression levels. Other H-Ras mutants did not exhibit any proliferation optima when expressed by themselves. In contrast, when the mutants were investigated in pairwise fashion, some cooperation could be observed between particular mutant pairs. Finally, the effect of these H-Ras mutants on proliferation was investigated in a murine pre-B cell line. By adding a reference population of cells to a culture of cells expressing H-Ras mutant oncogenes over a range of expression levels, we were able to track the population dynamics between these two subsets of cells. A simple mathematical approach will be detailed to demonstrate how we can calculate the net proliferation rate as a function of H-Ras expression level by tracking the distribution of these two cell populations over time.

    A central goal in neuroscience is to explain animal behavior in terms of causal cellular processes. It has been a longstanding challenge, however, to simultaneously track behavior and the cellular dynamics driving it. In this thesis, I discuss how a series of one- and two-photon fluorescence microscopes, based on gradient refractive index (GRIN) lenses, were developed to meet this challenge. The predominant difficulty in the design of these microscopes was how to take a traditional bench top microscope and shrink it to a size small enough for a mouse to easily carry on its head, a limit of 3 grams. We chose mice as our design target due to the wide availability of genetically modified mouse models for the study of cognitive functions, animal behaviors, and disorders of the nervous system. The earlier devices, relying on fiber optics to bring light to and from the animal, met with limited success but still provided useful insight in the development of the surgical techniques and analytical tools necessary for later successful experiments. In contrast, our latest system fully integrates the entire light pathway onto the head of mouse, eliminating many of the remaining roadblocks to truly freely-moving imaging. This device has enabled novel observations of both microcirculatory and neuronal calcium dynamics in the cerebellum of freely-moving mice at frame rates up to 100 Hz. As the genetic toolbox for mice continues to mature, these miniaturized microscopes will facilitate a wide set of future studies of how cellular function in the brain varies across different behavioral and physiological states.

    Successful interaction between an animal and its environment requires the execution of meaningful action in response to external cues and, in most situations, interpretation and integration of sensory inputs in the context of experience. Neurological and psychiatric diseases encompass dysfunction at any point in this pipeline. Neuroscientists seek to understand how the brain is able to complete these tasks in the healthy individual as well as the changes that underlie impairment in disease. The heterogeneous and highly interconnected structure of the brain creates unique hurdles to scientists that ask these questions. In many cases, traditional tools of the trade, namely, electrical and pharmacologic interventions, both fall short when used to derive definitive and generalizable conclusions. To facilitate neuroscience research, our laboratory has discovered, optimized, and diversified an array of single component, optically activated ion channels and pumps for neuronal control. These may be selectively introduced to neurons based on genetic or topological parameters, thereby selecting needles in the haystack of cells within the brain, and are modulated by light on the order of milliseconds, a scale relevant to neuronal activity. The purpose of the studies described here was two-fold: 1) to expand the toolbox through opsin engineering, light delivery methods, and molecular targeting strategies and 2) to apply these to understand the neurological basis of some psychiatric diseases. The use of these tools in understanding anxiety and social behavior circuitry is described briefly, while the application of two novel opsin variants to understanding the role of increased amounts of excitation relative to inhibition within the prefrontal cortex is detailed. The tools described here are designed for and validated within the brain, but may be applied within most biological systems. As experimental approaches expand, so do the range of questions available to science. Answers to these will lead to advances in understanding, managing, and curing injury and disease.

    The development of live cell RNA imaging techniques will lead to the unraveling of many important biological processes. To achieve this goal, there have been three different strategies developed. They are the development of small molecule probes, nucleic acid probes, and green fluorescent protein (GFP) probes. In the following thesis, the pros and cons of each approach are discussed, followed by a proposal to resolve the limitations. In the small molecule case, a probe was developed that utilized a quenched sulforhodamine dye. It was designed so that its structure can be rationally modified from the initial lead compound. An aptamer sequence that activates the sulforhodamine probe with micro molar affinity was found by in vitro Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX), followed by fluorescence screening in E.coli. The rational modification of the structure of the initial sulforhodamine probe resulted in an overall 33-fold increase in binding affinity compared to the initial lead compound. Instead of the chemical modification of the lead compound, the small molecule's cell permeability and binding affinity to the target could be improved by linking to cell penetrating peptides (CPP). A CPP is a short peptide sequence composed of poly arginine amino acids which shows excellent cell uptake and affinity to RNA. However, the use of the CPP-linked dye in live cell imaging has been limited by strong signals in the endosome region. An attempt was made to overcome this difficulty by linking a quencher molecule to the dye-CPP via a disulfide bond, which only breaks when it enters the cytosol. For the nucleic acid probe, the major problem was its low cell permeability and low signal-to-background ratio due to the low copy number of mRNA targets within the cell. We made mutant Hammerhead ribozymes and embedded them in a non-coding region of the GFP expression vector that can be transfected to mammalian cells. This modified Hammerhead ribozyme acts as a logic gate, and the signal is amplified by the expression of GFP in the presence of the target mRNA. In vitro and in vivo results are discussed. Finally, a fragmented GFP system, the fluorescence of which could be recovered by binding to a specific RNA tag, was developed. The major problem for the GFP-mediated RNA imaging system was the low signal-to-background ratio from the GFP probe that is not bound to the RNA tag. To find the non-fluorescent GFP, the GFP was truncated from the C-terminus such that it loses its fluorescence with minimum loss of amino acids. An RNA sequence that has high affinity to this GFP was found by in vitro SELEX. The subsequent E.coli screening found an RNA sequence that reactivates the fluorescence of the GFP probe.

    Fluorescence microscopy is one of the most widely used tools in cell biology due its intrinsically high detection sensitivity coupled with the ability to genetically label proteins and other cellular structures with fluorescent tags. However, the resolution of fluorescence microscopy has historically been limited to about 200 nm laterally and 800 nm axially because of the diffraction limit of visible light. In the past five years, imaging below the diffraction limit ("super-resolution imaging") by localizing single fluorophores, one at a time (1-3), has opened a wide a variety of new biological systems for study. This Dissertation is a collection of both techniques for two and three dimensional super-resolution imaging as well as applications in bacterial and yeast imaging. References 1.

    Templated fluorescence activation is an elegant nucleic acid detection technique, which relies on a target-activated chemical reaction between two oligonucleotide probes, eliciting a fluorescence readout. This method reports on genetic markers in solution phase and in cells. The research described in this thesis was aimed to expand the reaction scope of templated fluorescence activation and to develop probes, which overcome shortcomings of previous designs. Examples of DNA template-mediated fluorogenic reactions developed during this project include an organomercury-induced cyclization of Rhodamine thiosemicarbazide and the deprotection of a 7-azidomethoxycoumarin profluorophore by a Staudinger reaction. The most promising probe design (Q-STAR probes) is based on the reductive cleavage of an [alpha]-azidoether quencher release linker conjugated to a fluorophored-labeled DNA. A triphenylphosphine DNA-probe rapidly activates Q-STAR probes in the presence of the matched DNA target strand, reporting its presence by a strong fluorescence turn-on signal. Q-STAR probes are inert to aqueous conditions and cellular components, properties that were suboptimal for previous probe designs. Q-STAR probes report the target with single nucleotide specificity and enable an amplified detection signal by harnessing the target as a catalyst for the templated reaction. Q-STAR probes efficiently detect the presence of rRNAs in bacteria and mammalian cells. The probes are responsive to single nucleotide differences, which allows discriminating bacteria species by genetic variations using fluorescence microscopy or flow cytometry. Similarly, rRNAs in mammalian cells generate a strong fluorescence turn-on signal for Q-STAR probes. Templated fluorescence activation schemes bear considerable promise for applications in clinical diagnostics and molecular biology. The probe designs described in this thesis, in particular Q-STAR probes, constitute a major advancement in the field and will help achieve these goals.

    "For decades, lymphatic vessels were considered to be of "lesser significance" than blood vessels, and the fundamental importance of lymphatic vessels for physiological tissue homeostasis and their involvement in many pathological processes have only recently been fully appreciated. It is clear by now that all higher vertebrates possess a lymphatic vessel system, and that malfunctioning of the lymphatic vasculature has severe pathophysiological consequences. Still, many central aspects of the developmental origin, growth control and regulation of lymphatic vessels are not sufficiently understood. This volume of 'Advances in anatomy, embryology, and cell biology' focuses on the lymphatic vascular system from a developmental point of view, presenting exciting recent advances in elucidating the development and molecular control of lymphatic vessels. A collection of focused reviews, written by respected experts, describes ostensively how advanced genetic models and state-of-the-art imaging are being used to decipher the action of transcriptional programs, growth factors and matrix components in the regulation of lymphatic endothelial cell behavior. A synopsis is provided for each chapter, concisely highlighting the main points"--Publisher's description.

    In this work, I present two studies of the evolution and function of developmental enhancers. In the first study, I describe the discovery of the first examples of cis-regulatory elements that are conserved across the two great clades of the bilaterian tree (deuterostomes and protostomes). These bilaterian conserved regulatory elements (Bicores) are developmental enhancers that respond to key signaling pathways and have been conserved for approximately 650 million years. In vertebrates, Bicores have neofunctionalized to drive expression in the central nervous system. In the second study, I present a genome-wide set of putative enhancers that function in the development of the mammalian neocortex. These elements, identified through ChIP-seq, are validated through both computational and experimental approaches. I show that many elements are anciently conserved beyond mammals, and we show that older elements are more likely to be pleiotropic. Pleiotropic elements most likely function in other aspects of central nervous system development, and elements that are conserved to zebrafish function in the developing zebrafish forebrain. I also provide evidence that specific repeat families have played a major role in the generation of enhancers that function in neocortex development. Finally, in the conclusion, I discuss how enhancer neofunctionalization and pleiotropy fit into a model of enhancer evolution and the evo-devo framework.

    "Reduced production of DHEA associated with the diseases that accompany aging has led to its use as a nutritional supplement for antiaging, metabolic support, and other purposes. While animal studies have clearly shown substantial benefits of DHEA in combating various disease states, the effect of low levels of DHEA in humans is less established, and the mechanisms of action and potential involvement in illnesses remain unclear. DHEA in Human Health and Aging reviews the past ten years of research into this hormone and explores its potential for future study."--Publisher's description.

    Diabetes, in all of its forms, now constitutes a growing health concern, affecting all segments of the world's population. There is great interest in the factors which influence its etiology and progression. Among these, a number of viruses feature prominently. Hindered by technological limitations, research into this relationship has hitherto been scarce. Recent advances, however, have opened up the field and there is a burgeoning body of literature on the subject. Unfortunately, this literature has been diffuse and often difficult to access.For the first time, this book compiles the views of many of the world's experts in the field. It addresses questions, ranging from how viruses may destroy or modify the function of pancreatic islets; to which viruses are the most likely culprits; to whether vaccines or etiologic therapies might be used to prevent virus-induced diabetes. Diabetes and Viruses is the first comprehensive volume on an important and expanding field of research that is of interest to clinicians, healthcare managers, epidemiologists, veterinarians, and basic scientists.

    This volume provides a practical yet comprehensive guide to manage the shift in the diagnosis of lung cancer from large resections to small samples, including cytology specimens and core biopsies. Specifically, it outlines various available minimally-invasive modalities and presents algorithms to optimize and maximize sample collection and processing beginning at the time of tissue acquisition during the procedure. Secondly, the book provides an overview of the various existing and emerging lung cancer therapies and why a specific diagnosis is crucial. Key elements for the classification of small biopsies and cytology proposed by the ATS, IASLC, and ERS are highlighted. A section dedicated to immunohistochemistry offers a logical, step-by-step guide to sub-classify lung cancers and to differentiate them from metastases. The text also provides a review of the various molecular tests (and alternatives in cases of scant tissue) required for lung adenocarcinomas. Finally, potential pitfalls to avoid during acquisition, processing, and classification are discussed. With contributions from a team of multidisciplinary authors who are regularly involved in the care of lung cancer patients , Diagnosing Non-small Cell Carcinoma in Small Biopsy and Cytology is an invaluable reference guide for pathologists, pathologists-in-training, and allied professionals, including oncologists, pulmonologists, surgeons, and radiologists.

    This book presents the views of leading European experts on the diagnosis and management of testicular cancer, with coverage of current hot topics in the field. It opens by providing an overview of the recommendations in the most recent consensus paper from the European Germ Cell Cancer Consensus Group, which is based on interdisciplinary cooperation among urologists, medical oncologists, radio-oncologists, pathologists, and basic scientists. The remainder of the book focuses on areas of controversy in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of testicular cancer. In each case the evidence base is discussed and results from the most recent studies are reviewed, drawing attention to new findings that might alter treatment recommendations. The treatment-related chapters cover a broad range of issues, including the best approach in patients with poor-prognosis and recurrent disease and those with long-term toxicities. Relevant aspects of survivorship care are also addressed. The book will help clinicians and practitioners to achieve the goals of minimizing therapy and its side-effects without reducing efficacy in low stage disease, improving the cure rate in advanced disease, and enhancing follow-up and long-term survivorship.

    The available textbooks on endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) typically focus on technique and interpretation of commonly observed images and scenarios and are aimed primarily at trainees. However, independent practitioners of EUS are often challenged by unusual cases which they are expected to handle competently despite the absence of authoritative guidance. The Diagnostic Endosonography aims to fill this gap by presenting carefully selected cases that will expand the practitioner's knowledge base and cover important clinical challenges. The case material is organized principally according to anatomic site. Approximately 170 case reports are included, each of which is accompanied by an average of three to five high-quality EUS images; in addition, CT and PET scans are shown when appropriate. For each case, the case description is followed by helpful 'teaching points' as well as up-to-date literature references and suggestions for future research.

    This book introduces the diagnosis of Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs), including newly emerging infectious diseases and also infectious diseases that show resistance to present treatments. Radiographic examinations are of great value in EIDs diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment efficacy assessment and prognosis evaluation. This book covers severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), human avian influenza (H5N1, H7N9), influenza A (H1N1), hand-foot-mouth disease, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), viral hepatitis, pulmonary tuberculosis. All seven of these EIDs are associated with high incidence and mortality. This book details the imaging techniques, radiological appearance and characteristics of EIDs, and diagnosis and differential diagnosis of EID-related complications. Considering the unique and in some cases only partially understood nature of EIDs, appropriate space is provided in this book for the detailed explanation of the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical symptoms and signs, laboratory tests, clinical diagnosis and differential diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and prognosis of EIDs. As such, it will be a valuable resource for improving the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of EIDs. Editors Pu-Xuan Lu and Bo-Ping Zhou are professors at Shenzhen Third People's Hospital, Guangdong Medical College, China.

    With its complex anatomy and specialized biomechanics, the human hand has always presented physicians with a unique challenge when it comes to diagnosing and treating the diseases that afflict it. And while recent decades have seen a rapid increase in the number of therapeutic options, many diseases and injuries of the hand are still commonly misinterpreted. In this book, an interdisciplinary team, comprising specialists in radiology, surgery, and rheumatology, presents a comprehensive, reliable guide to this topographically intricate area. Highlights include: More than 1,000 high-quality illustrations; state-of-the-art imaging modalities -- including multiline spiral CR, with 2D displays and 3D reconstructions, and contrast -- enhanced MRI with multi-channel, phased-array coils; an overview of all currently used methods of examination; a detailed presentation of the anatomic and functional foundations necessary for diagnosis; full coverage of all disorders of the hand; and systematic treatment of each disease's definition, pathogenesis, and clinical symptoms, according to a graduated diagnostic plan.

    "DP: Gastrointestinal, Second Edition provides quick, up-to-date information on gastrointestinal pathology, both visual and factual, to either help the pathologist arrive at the correct diagnosis or refresh his or her memory about the diagnosis itself. Instead of full prose text, we have provided a stripped-down outline format. The key facts regarding each diagnosis are then highlighted in a box for ease of use. Tables highlighting the salient immunostains &/or molecular tests useful in the differential diagnosis of lesions are provided when appropriate, and all diagnoses are illustrated with high-quality color images taken with the intent of mimicking real practice. We hope that this book is useful as a quick reference at the microscope during sign-out, whether to look up something as esoteric as microsporidia or something as common as serrated colorectal polyps. While the images in this book will never be outdated, the same cannot be said for the text (how many new antibodies have come out in the time it took you to read this page?). To help alleviate this problem, the purchaser has a license to ExpertConsult, the eBook version of Diagnostic Pathology: Gastrointestinal, Second Edition, which will undergo regular updates."--Provided by publisher.

    Which disease should you consider when a young adult has localized bone pain that is dramatically relieved by aspirin? What is sometimes the only physical manifestation of bulimia nervosa? These so-called "old fashioned" historical clues and physical signs are not only part of our medical heritage; their deployment can often spell the difference between prompt clinical diagnosis versus a costly investigative odyssey. Often overlooked with today's emphasis on laboratory testing, a diagnostic pearl such as knowing that a diabetic patient with peripheral neuropathy may actually have metformin-induced vitamin B12 deficiency can be a shortcut to disease recognition.Diagnostic Principles and Applications presents selected literature-based facts and diagnostic insights to help clinicians provide better-informed clinical assessments, avoid medical misadventures, and prepare for their board examinations. The chapters cover:Classic diagnostic pearlsRed flag symptoms and signs of serious illnessBellwether disease indications allowing an occasional early, preemptive diagnosisCounterintuitive clinical manifestations of diseaseCurious clues to specific diagnosesRobert B. Taylor, MD is the author and editor of more than two dozen medical books, including three on the topic of clinical diagnosis, and several hundred published articles.

    Over the past 20 years, diagnostic tests for pediatric pulmonologists have revolutionized care of children afflicted with respiratory disorders. These tests have been used to not only help in diagnosis, but also in the management and treatment of these children. Bronchoscopic, imaging and physiologic advances have improved clinical care of these children and have been used as outcome measures in research trials. Diagnostic Tests in Pediatric Pulmonology: Applications and Interpretation describes the various diagnostic modalities (especially the newer ones) that are available for the evaluation of pediatric respiratory disorders. It also provides an understanding of the advantages and limitations of each test so that the clinician may choose the most appropriate ones. An internationally renowned group of authors describe how best to interpret the key findings in a variety of tests as well as the possible pitfalls in incorrect interpretation. This volume focuses on the main diagnostic modalities used in the evaluation of pediatric patients with respiratory disorders and presents up-to-date information on the advantages and limitations of each test for a variety of conditions encountered in the practice of pediatric pulmonology. Clinical utility of these tests is also highlighted. This valuable resource is well suited to practicing clinicians, including pediatric pulmonologists, pediatricians and primary care practitioners, as well as trainees, respiratory therapists and clinical researchers.

    "New pedagogical visions and technological developments have brought argumentation to the fore of educational practice. Whereas students previously 'learned to 'argue', they now 'argue to learn': collaborative argumentation-based learning has become a popular and valuable pedagogical technique, across a variety of tasks and disciplines. Researchers have explored the conditions under which arguing to learn is successful, have described some of its learning potentials (such as for conceptual change and reflexive learning) and have developed Internet-based tools to support such learning. However, the further advancement of this field presently faces several problems, which the present book addresses. Three dimensions of analysis - historical, theoretical and empirical - are integrated throughout the book. Given the nature of its object of study - dialogue, interaction, argumentation, learning and teaching - the book is resolutely multidisciplinary, drawing on research on learning in educational and psychological sciences, as well as on philosophical and linguistic theories of dialogue and argumentation"-- Provided by publisher.

    In times of emergency, clear communication is critical to saving lives and preventing further destruction. Operations in the field, negotiations between governments and relief organizations, and planning and training sessions all require collaboration among people from various disciplines using different terminologies. Without a common lexicon, misunderstandings and other communication errors can lead to the loss of valuable time, scarce resources, and lives--and during an era marked by climate disasters, warfare, industrial accidents, and threats of bioterrorism, the stakes are increasingly high. It is in this spirit that the original Dictionary of Disaster Medicine and Humanitarian Relief was assembled, and the same holds true for this timely Second Edition. This practical resource boasts more than twice the number of entries as the first edition: definitions, abbreviations, and acronyms covering all phases of humanitarian aid, from planning and preparedness to rescue and recovery. Its contents have been field-tested across the emergency intervention community, and are as useful in communicating with the media and the public as with colleagues. This expanded edition of the Dictionary of Disaster Medicine and Humanitarian Relief ably follows its predecessor as an authoritative resource for researchers and professionals in global health, health promotion, public health, public health policy, and disaster management.
