    The adaptive immune system is composed of [alpha beta] T cells, [gamma delta] T cells, and B cells, all of which express diverse rearranged antigen receptors and have been conserved together through evolution. [gamma delta] T cells make up the minority of circulating T cells and perform many of the same effector functions as [alpha beta] T cells, including cytotoxic functions and the production of cytokines like IL-17, IFN-[gamma], and IL-4. However, the conservation of [gamma delta] T cells suggests that they fill a non-redundant role in the adaptive immune system. Because their functions overlap, it is likely that [gamma delta] T cells are distinctive from [alpha beta] T cells in the way they are triggered by antigen. These antigenic triggers of [gamma delta] T cells remain poorly defined, but a more thorough knowledge of this repertoire will enhance understanding of the role of [gamma delta] T cells in the immune response. The identification of new [gamma delta] T cell antigens was undertaken, resulting in the discovery of hapten small molecule [gamma delta] T cell ligands and the identification of a diverse group of additional candidate [gamma delta] T cell ligands. With the discovery that [gamma delta] T cell receptors can recognize small molecules in addition to their known large protein ligands, it is clear that [gamma delta] T cells fill a unique role in the adaptive immune system is solidified with a broad capacity for antigen recognition along with all the functionality of T cells, and are uniquely situated to function together with [alpha beta] T cells and B cells in a concerted antigen-specific response.

    How the human brain processes phonemes has been a subject of interest for linguists and neuroscientists for a long time. Electroencephalography (EEG) offers a promising approach to observe neural activities of phoneme processing in the brain, thanks to its high temporal resolution, low cost and noninvasiveness. The studies on Mismatch Negativity (MMN) effects in EEG activities in the 1990s suggested the existence of a language-specific central phoneme representation in the brain. Recent findings using magnetoencephalograph (MEG) also suggested that the brain encodes the complex acoustic-phonetic information of speech into the representations of phonological features before the lexical information is retrieved. However, very little success has yet been reported in classifying the brain activities associated with phoneme processing. In my work, I proposed a classification framework which incorporates Principal Components Analysis (PCA), cross-validation and support vector machine (SVM) methods. The initial classification rates were not very good. Progress was made by using bootstrap aggregation (Bagging) scheme and introducing phase calculations. To calculate phase, I computed the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) of the original time-domain signal and kept the angles of the finite sample of frequencies. The resulting EEG spectral representation contains only the phase and frequency information and ignores the amplitudes. Using this method, the accurate rate of classifying averaged test samples of eight consonants improved from 41% to 51%. Furthermore, the qualitative analysis of the similarities between the EEG representations, derived from the confusion matrices, illustrates the invariance of brain and perceptual representation of phonemes. For brain and perceptual representation of consonants, voicing is the most distinguishable feature among voicing, continuant and place of articulation. And the feature vowel-height is more robust than vowel-backness in both brain and perceptual representation of vowels. By extending and further refining these methods, it is likely significant classification of other phonemes and features can be made.

    "Once per life cycle, mitotic nuclear divisions are replaced by meiosis I and II - reducing chromosome number from the diploid level to a haploid genome, reshuffling the homologous chromosomes by their centromeres, and recombining chromosome arms by crossing-over. In animals, including humans, all this happens during the germ cell formation of eggs and sperm. Due to the reign of meiosis, no child is a true genetic copy of either parent. Questions still open primarily concern the placement of and mutual coordination between neighboring crossover events. The current book addresses these processes and mechanisms in multicellular eukaryotes, such as Drosophila, Anibidopsis, mice and humans. The pioneering model systems of yeasts, as well as evolutionary aspects, will be addressed in a forthcoming volume."--Jacket.

    Once per life cycle, mitotic nuclear divisions are replaced by meiosis I and II - reducing chromosome number from the diploid level to a haploid genome and recombining chromosome arms by crossing-over. In animals, all this happens during formation of eggs and sperm - in yeasts before spore formation. The mechanisms of reciprocal exchange at crossover/chiasma sites are central to mainstream meiosis. To initiate the meiotic exchange of DNA, surgical cuts are made as a form of calculated damage that subsequently is repaired by homologous recombination. These key events are accompanied by ancillar.

    "The two world wars played an important role in the evolution of plastic and maxillofacial surgery in the first half of the 20th century. This book is about four of the key figures involved. Sir Harold Gillies and Sir Archibald McIndoe were born in Dunedin; McIndoe and Rainsford Mowlem studied medicine at the University of Otago Medical School, and Henry Pickerill was foundation Dean of the University of Otago Dental School. The author describes how these surgeons revolutionised plastic surgery and the treatment of facial trauma, working on soldiers, fighter pilots and civilians disfigured by bombs, shrapnel and burns. Eventually Gillies et al. were supported by a vast surgical enterprise that included surgeons, dentists, anaesthetists, artists and photographers, nurses and orderlies. The text is fully illustrated with photos, drawings and case notes by the surgeons and war artists at military hospitals at Boulogne-sur-Mer, Aldershot and Sidcup in the First World War, and civilian hospitals at East Grinstead, Basingstoke and Hill End in the Second. The book includes a DVD of Rainsford Mowlem performing a variety of plastic operations in 1945. This book is a must for anyone interested in the history of medicine and the treatment of casualties in the two world wars"--From publisher.

    This book gives an updated and detailed overview of diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for rectal cancer. Rectal cancer has become an increasing and serious disease in western countries, mainly linked to lifestyle and bad alimentation habits. This specific cancer is not only a threat to the lifespan of patients, but also has a heavy impact on quality of life, due to its implications in the fecal, urinary and sexual functions. Recent guidelines of prevention and early diagnosis, as well as current and future diagnostic and staging work-up, are here presented in a clear and convincing way, linking each topic to the therapeutic options arising from the staging and including a chapter on the molecular evaluation of the tumor. To complete the multifaceted approach to this particular pathology, a large part is devoted to the in-hospital care of rectal cancer patients, beginning from the fast-track procedures and the enhanced recovery systems, up to the in-depth description of the available of surgical techniques, including salvage situations, accidents, complications, and their treatment. A final chapter will be dedicated to the follow-up policy and its advantages.

    This book on the morphology of corneal surface changes in recurrent erosion syndrome and epithelial edema presents high-magnification images captured in vivo by the method of non-contact photomicrography. Part I of the book, on recurrent erosion syndrome, displays images covering a broad spectrum of epithelial changes, including manifestations of the ongoing underlying pathological process and epithelial activity aimed at elimination of abnormal elements and repair. The dynamics of the interplay between these opposing forces are captured in sequential photographs that are invaluable for interpretation. Case reports illustrate typical features of the disease and document the variability of symptoms and findings in the same individual over time. Also included are images of the appearance and dynamics of corneal stromal infiltrates, a rare but potentially sight-threatening complication. Part II of the book demonstrates typical features of corneal epithelial edema and also covers the occasional contemporaneous occurrence, and dynamics, of various phenomena indistinguishable from those commonly seen in recurrent erosion syndrome. Again, informative case reports are included. The in vivo images displayed in this book, obtained at a higher magnification than that used in standard photography, reveal additional details of epithelial changes. The presented morphology will facilitate understanding of clinical appearances and assist in differential diagnosis.

    A shocking tour through a macabre global underworld where organs, bones, and live people are bought and sold on the red market. Investigative journalist Scott Carney has spent five years tracing the lucrative and deeply secretive trade in human bodies and body parts. The Red Market reveals the rise, fall, and resurgence of this multibillion-dollar underground trade through history, from early medical study and modern universities to poverty-ravaged Eurasian villages and high-tech Western labs; from body snatchers and surrogate mothers to skeleton dealers and the poor who sell body parts to survive. While local and international law enforcement have cracked down on the market, advances in science have increased the demand for human tissue--ligaments, kidneys, even rented space in women's wombs--leaving little room to consider the ethical dilemmas inherent in the flesh-and-blood trade--From publisher description.

    "Dr. Kimberly Allison diagnoses breast cancer for a living. But as a 33-year-old healthy new mother, she never expected to find herself looking at her own malignant cells under the microscope. Like many others diagnosed with cancer, Dr. Allison was starving for stories of other survivors. She wanted to hear someone's tale, to feel their experiences and look for hidden clues to what her own future might hold. Ultimately, the story that Dr. Allison was looking for was found in her own life. Red Sunshine is a memoir about Dr. Allison's sudden journey from physician to patient and her attempt to make the most of this terrifying and unexpected ordeal. Her experience reflects the incredible power of the bonds of friendship and family. It is about paying attention to the magic that is waiting to be uncovered in everyday life. Red Sunshine is an uplifting story of survival in which Dr. Allison shares all the intimate details of her emotional journey with both humor and honesty"-- Provided by publisher.

    This book describes the techniques, strategies, and drugs that have been demonstrated by well-documented randomized trials to influence survival in the perioperative setting. It takes into consideration all types of adult surgery and will be relevant to the evaluation of any patient undergoing an operative procedure. Each chapter focuses on a specific procedure, device, or drug. The scope is accordingly wide, with coverage of topics as diverse as chlorhexidine oral rinse, clonidine therapy, insulin infusion, intra-aortic balloon pump support, leukodepletion, neuraxial anesthesia, and noninvasive respiratory support, to name but a few. In addition, the risks and benefits of using a web-based consensus process (as in this book) to identify effective means of reducing perioperative mortality are discussed. The clear text is supported by "how to do" sections and "key points" boxes that provide easily accessible practical information. Written by acknowledged international experts, Reducing Mortality in the Perioperative Period will be of interest for a wide variety of specialists, including surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and intensivists.

    Toxicity testing is used to assess the safety or hazards presented by substances such as industrial chemicals, consumer products, and pharmaceuticals. At present, many methods involve laboratory animals. Alternative procedures, some involving human cell-based technologies, are now being developed which reduce, refine, or replace animal usage and minimize the pain and distress caused. These new tests must protect public health and the environment at least as well as currently accepted methods. This book describes the ever-expanding "toolbox" of methods available to assess toxicity. Such techniques often result from our growing understanding of the biochemical and cellular pathways that mediate toxicity mechanisms. This permits evaluations of information generated from several sources to generate a "weight of evidence". By combining in silico, in vitro, and ex vivo methods with technologies that rely on biochemical- and cell-based in vitro assays, toxicologists are developing mechanistically based alternatives to live animal experimentation. This text also explores the complexities associated with adequate validation, and the assessment of test reliability and relevance. It provides an essential reference source for postgraduates, academics and industrialists working in this rapidly changing area.

    In this report, the Trust for America's Health (TFAH) examines how to help move towards a strong prevention-oriented, continuum-of-care approach to substance misuse -- looking at policies and programs that have a high impact for improving the well-being of America's youth. Section 1 reviews 10 examples of important policy indicators or programs that states may have in place that can have an impact on the well-being of children and youth and/or have been connected with preventing and reducing youth substance misuse. The indicators reflect a range of types of policies that support a prevention-intervention-treatment approach -- from supporting healthier schools and communities to limiting access to substances to providing positive support and treatment. Section 2 featuers recommendations for modernizing the nation's strategy for addressing youth substance misuse by imprementing a research-based public health approach.

    The Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) Framework paper's typology of payment methods represents a useful continuum for describing a range of payment models. However, this continuum works less well for actually judging which payment methods deserve priority emphasis for the following reasons: Because all payment models have strengths and weaknesses, the impact of any particular one depends crucially on the specific payment design adopted--including not only the structure of the payment method but also the relative and absolute levels of payment provided; Operational issues related to coding accuracy, availability of reliable and relevant quality measures, and other practical requirements for proper payment need to be addressed; Broad-based testing will be needed in a variety of provider settings to assess the actual impact of new payment methods before they can be adopted nationally in the Medicare program; and The highest value might be delivered in hybrid payment models that combine the strengths of various payment methods while mitigating their weaknesses, rather than by relying on the pure payment methods that make up the LAN continuum.

    Regenerative medicine is at a pivotal point. Innovations in the science and the rapid growth of translational medicine are transforming the field just as institutional arrangements are changing, making this an exciting yet unsettled time. Recent court cases and policy initiatives are creating crosscurrents that keep older issues from being settled while introducing new dilemmas. Current research propels collaborations across disciplines and sectors, raising the question of how tensions between the protection of intellectual property and the movement toward "open science" can be negotiated. Other important social, ethical and legal questions arise in the gray areas created by new scientific techniques and pragmatic areas involved in scale-up and testing in humans. The times call for governance that is adaptive to meet the needs of science yet able to maintain public trust. The contributors address these and other vital questions through chapters focusing on topics such as data sharing; patenting of human biological material; and managing collaborations across academic, industry and government sectors as well as across national boundaries. Key research ethics issues are also included such as obtaining consent from biospecimen donors; accessing biorepository data, and considerations in designing preclinical and clinical trial protocols for first-in-human research, including upcoming policy changes. Rather than retracing well-trodden topics, the book points to nascent areas that need to be addressed. Whether working in academia, industry, or government, regenerative medicine scientists and managers need to know how to navigate current and upcoming issues of governance facing the field. Regenerative Medicine Ethics: Governing Research and Knowledge. Practices will be a valuable resource for scientists, policy-makers and students as they plan and execute responsible research.

    The research described in this book represents important steps toward understanding the development of inner ear medicine and new perspectives in regenerative medicine, including efficacy in cochlear implants and various other treatments. The book depicts the mechanisms that underlie inner ear diseases, their experimental models, and proposals for new strategies to treat their symptoms. As well, the exciting future prospects for dealing with the very common problem of inner ear diseases are explained. These disorders occur among many people and include sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), sudden deafness, senile deafness, noise-induced deafness, tinnitus, dizziness-vertigo, and Ménière's disease. In Japan alone, there are more than 6 million deaf patients including those with middle-range deafness. There is currently no effective treatment, and regardless of the underlying cause, the damage has been considered irreversible. However, the results of recent research show that these patients actually can recover. The study of hair cells, spiral ganglion neurons, and stem cells for inner ear diseases such as SNHL, tinnitus, dizziness, and vertigo is at the forefront of regenerative medicine and may provide solutions to some of these problems. The information presented here makes this book a valuable professional reference work for all doctors and researchers in the field of otolaryngology who focus on regenerative treatments for inner ear diseases.

    "Regenerative medicine is broadly defined as the repair or replacement of damaged cells, tissues, and organs. It is a multidisciplinary effort in which technologies derive from the fields of cell, developmental, and molecular biology; chemical and material sciences (i.e., nanotechnology); engineering; surgery; transplantation; immunology; molecular genetics; physiology; and pharmacology. As regenerative medicine technologies continue to evolve and expand across the boundaries of numerous scientific disciplines, they remain at the forefront of the translational research frontier with the potential to radically alter the treatment of a wide variety of disease and dysfunction. The goal of this book is to draw attention to the critical role that the pharmacological sciences will undeniably play in the advancement of these treatments. This book is invaluable for advanced students, postdoctoral fellows, researchers new to the field of regenerative medicine/tissue engineering, and experienced investigators looking for new research avenues. This is the first state-of-the-art book in this rapidly evolving field of research"--Provided by publisher.

    T cell development involves stereotyped movements of developing thymocytes through specific stromal microenvironments in thymus, with immature double-negative (DN, CD4-CD8-) and double-positive (DP, CD4+CD8+) thymocytes found in cortex, and mature single-positive (SP, CD4+CD8- or CD4-CD8+) thymocytes in medulla. Critical events occur in each of these locations, notably positive selection, which leads to survival and maturation of DPs and occurs in cortex, and negative selection, which leads to elimination of autoreactive thymocytes and can occur in cortex or medulla depending on the type of antigen. Several key questions remain about the mechanisms underlying these developmental transitions. How are thymocytes properly localized to cortex and medulla? Is there further specialization of stroma within these regions for supporting thymocyte migration or signaling? How do Ca2+ signals, which are critical for both positive and negative selection, differ between these two developmental pathways? In this thesis, we utilize thymic slices, which preserve native stromal architecture and support thymocyte development, to address these questions. Two-photon microscopy of fluorescently labeled thymocytes within slices allows us to non-invasively image the migration, localization, and signaling of single thymocytes in real time, providing a better understanding of how these behaviors are regulated during development and also as a function of location in tissue. In Chapter 2, we address the question of how developing thymocytes are localized to their proper tissue locations in thymus. When layered on the cut surface of slices, purified stages of thymocytes localize to their proper thymic environments, with immature DNs and DPs restricted to cortex, and SPs concentrating in medulla. Remarkably, we find evidence for two distinct mechanisms controlling proper localization of immature versus mature thymocytes. Pre-selection DPs are strictly localized to cortex by their inability to migrate on medullary substrates. SPs localize to medulla via CCR7-dependent chemotaxis, which is directly demonstrated, as well as a novel GPCR-mediated signaling module permitting SP migration on medullary substrates. In Chapter 3, we examine differences in Ca2+ signaling between positive versus negative selection, as well as between distinct locations in thymus, and clarify the role of Ca2+ in controlling motility during negative selection. We find larger Ca2+ signals during early stages of negative selection relative to positive selection, and stronger signaling in response to selecting antigens in the inner cortex near medulla. Sustained Ca2+ signals during negative selection are largely not required for stopping cells, but do contribute to prolonging motile arrest of a proportion of the thymocyte population. Overall these results point to several key events during the transition from cortical DPs to medullary SPs that may enhance the efficiency of selection. As DPs pass through a specialized inner cortical environment, they may become more responsive to peptide ligands leading to positive and negative selection. Stronger Ca2+ signals during negative compared to positive selection in DPs and SPs may help to commit thymocytes to death over maturation. Finally, the ability to migrate in medulla, which thymocytes acquire post-positive selection, may represent an important developmental switch confining pre-selection cells to cortex for further testing against selecting antigens, while permitting post-positive selection thymocytes to undergo an additional layer of testing against tissue-specific antigens, followed by maturation and exit.

    Various applications in the field of pulmonary image analysis require a registration of CT images of the lung. For example, a registration-based estimation of the breathing motion is employed to increase the accuracy of dose distribution in radiotherapy. Alexander Schmidt-Richberg develops methods to explicitly model morphological and physiological knowledge about respiration in algorithms for the registration of thoracic CT images. The author focusses on two lung-specific issues: on the one hand, the alignment of the interlobular fissures and on the other hand, the estimation of sliding motion at the lung boundaries. He shows that by explicitly considering these aspects based on a segmentation of the respective structure, registration accuracy can be significantly improved.

    This User's Guide is intended to support the design, implementation, analysis, interpretation, and quality evaluation of registries created to increase understanding of patient outcomes. For the purposes of this guide, a patient registry is an organized system that uses observational study methods to collect uniform data (clinical and other) to evaluate specified outcomes for a population defined by a particular disease, condition, or exposure, and that serves one or more predetermined scientific, clinical, or policy purposes. A registry database is a file (or files) derived from the registry. Although registries can serve many purposes, this guide focuses on registries created for one or more of the following purposes: to describe the natural history of disease, to determine clinical effectiveness or cost-effectiveness of health care products and services, to measure or monitor safety and harm, and/or to measure quality of care. Registries are classified according to how their populations are defined. For example, product registries include patients who have been exposed to biopharmaceutical products or medical devices. Health services registries consist of patients who have had a common procedure, clinical encounter, or hospitalization. Disease or condition registries are defined by patients having the same diagnosis, such as cystic fibrosis or heart failure.

    Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC) is a rare metabolic lysosomal storage disorder (LSD) marked by accumulation of large quantities of cholesterol, lipids and other metabolites in cells. Though the disorder has been extensively explored using various genetic animal models, an understanding of the molecular and cellular pathology of the disease remains limited. A cell-type-specific and regulable rescue mouse model of NPC disease was engineered in order to identify the therapeutically relevant cell type and ascertain the effect of inflammation on disease progression. With the current information presented in this dissertation, a probable road map of NPC disease pathology has been drawn. The road map for NPC may also be applicable to, or act as a template for, other lysosomal storage diseases and neurodegenerative disorders with similar pathologies.

    For successful segregation of chromosomes during meiosis, chromosomes have to recognize and align with their correct homologous partners, and then stabilize the homologous alignment with assembly of a proteinaceous structure, called the synaptonemal complex (SC), between them. SC assembly is highly processive and cooperative, yet the SC structure does not distinguish between homologous and nonhomologous associations. Thus SC assembly has to be tightly regulated and coordinated with homologous pairing to ensure that the SC is stabilizing productive homologous associations. Moreover, homologous pairing is accompanied by dramatic chromosome movement and nuclear reorganization of chromosomes into a clustered configuration during C. elegans early meiotic prophase. Subsequently, the clustered chromosomes are redispersed into aligned homologs upon SC assembly. The exact mechanisms involved in regulation and coordination of homologous pairing and synapsis are poorly understood, and this thesis was aimed at gaining a better understanding of the coordination of these two inter-related meiotic events. We identified HAL-2 as a major player in this coordination. We demonstrated that HAL-2 promotes homologous pairing mainly by preventing detrimental effects of SC precursors (SYP proteins). Homologous pairing is not established in hal-2 mutants, and several markers indicative of pairing center-mediated chromosome movement are also absent in hal-2 mutants. Pairing centers (PCs) are cis-acting chromosomal sites that mediate chromosome movement by connecting chromosomes to cytoplasmic microtubules via the conserved SUN-1/ZYG-12 nuclear envelope-spanning complexes. hal-2 mutants also exhibit defective SC assembly, with SYP proteins being loaded inappropriately along single unpaired chromosomes in hal-2 mutants. Moreover markers of PC-mediated chromosome movement and function are coordinately restored in hal-2 mutants by the removal of SYP proteins. Combined with other data, these findings indicate that SYP proteins can inhibit homologous pairing and that HAL-2 promotes pairing largely by antagonizing this inhibition, thus allowing activation and regulation of PC function. Given that HAL-2 concentrates in the nucleoplasm of meiotic germ cells and colocalizes with SYP proteins in nuclear aggregates when SC assembly is prevented, we propose that HAL-2 functions to shepherd SYP proteins prior to licensing of SC assembly, preventing SC precursors from interacting inappropriately with chromosomes and allowing them to accumulate sufficiently for rapid cooperative assembly upon homology verification. In this thesis, we also identified and characterized me16, a hypomorphic allele of scc-3. SCC-3 is a conserved component of the cohesin complex, and the scc-3(me16) mutant was demonstrated to be a partial loss of function mutation by comparative analyses with a null mutant, scc-3(ku263). Besides reduced chromosomal localization of cohesin, scc-3(me16) mutants also display an extended region of clustered chromosomes, incomplete SC assembly and defective recombination. Further, analyses of nuclear aggregates that form in the scc-3(ku263) null mutants led to the findings that components of the lateral elements, including cohesin, colocalize into these nuclear aggregates and that this localization is not dependent on REC-8.

    Throughout development cells must go through numerous changes in cell-cell adhesiveness. Within an epithelial layer, cell-cell contacts form and maintenance junctional complexes such as Adherens Junctions, Tight Junctions, and Desmosomes. The Adherens junction (AJ) and Tight junction (TJ) provide important adhesive contacts between neighboring epithelial cells. Although these junctions comprise different proteins, there are similarities in the roles of specialized transmembrane proteins in forming extracellular adhesive contacts between cells, and intracellular links to the actin cytoskeleton and signaling pathways including the regulation of gene transcription. The Adherens junction performs multiple functions including initiation and stabilization of cell--cell adhesion, regulation of the actin cytoskeleton, intracellular signaling and transcriptional regulation. The core of the Adherens junction includes interactions among transmembrane glycoproteins of the classical cadherin superfamily, such as E-cadherin, and the catenin family members including p120-catenin, [Beta]-catenin, and [Alpha]-catenin. Together, these proteins control the formation, maintenance and function of adherens junctions. Tight junctions have been proposed to have two mutually exclusive functions: a fence function which prevents the mixing of membrane proteins between the apical and basolateral membranes; and a gate function which controls the paracellular passage of ions and solutes in-between cells. Tight junctions contain two types of transmembrane proteins, occludins and claudins, which confer these functions, and associated cytoplasmic proteins that may link tight junctions to the actin-cytoskeleton and the adherens junction. Adherens Junction mediated cell--cell adhesion is highly dynamic enabling the reorganization and dispersal of cells, for example, during epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition in normal development and carcinogenesis. p120-Catenin binding to, and Hakai (an E3 ubiquitin ligase)-mediated ubiquitination of the juxtamembrane domain (JMD) of E-cadherin are thought to be involved in regulating E-cadherin internalization and degradation. However, the relationship between these two pathways is not known. The aim of my project was to determine if p120-catenin/E-cadherin and Hakai dependent ubiquitination of E-cadherin are mechanistically linked. We targeted the E-cadherin JMD to mitochondria (WT-JMD) to isolate this domain from the plasma membrane and internalization, and to examine protein modifications and degradation. WT-JMD was targeted to mitochondria, but it did not accumulate there except when proteasome activity was inhibited. We found that WT-JMD was ubiquitinated, and arginine substitution of lysines at position 5 (K5R) and 83 (K83R) resulted in the stable accumulation of mutant JMD at mitochondria. p120-Catenin did not localize, or bind to WT-JMD even upon proteasome inhibition, whereas the K5,83R JMD mutant bound p120-catenin and localized it to mitochondria. Mutation of the p120-catenin binding site in combination with these lysine mutations inhibited p120-catenin bind-ing, but did not decrease JMD stability or its accumulation at mitochondria. Further-more, over-expression of Hakai resulted in inhibition of p120-catenin binding to WT-JMD. Thus, increased stability of JMD lysine mutants was due to inhibition of ubiquitination and not to p120-catenin binding. Finally, mutation of these critical lysines in full length E-cadherin had the same effects on protein stability as mitochondria-targeted E-cadherin JMD. Our results indicate that ubiquitination of the JMD inhibits p120-catenin binding, and targets E-cadherin for degradation via the proteasome. Further work needs to be done to test our hypothesis that p120-catenin stabilizes E-cadherin by masking ubiquitination sites within E-cadherin-JMD.

    Many adult tissues with short-lived cells such as blood and skin require a constant replacement of aging cells. This process is often accomplished by adult stem cells, both self-renew and give rise to differentiating progeny. The process of self-renewal and differentiation must be tightly controlled: failure to self-renew results in the loss of the stem cell population, and lack of differentiation impairs tissue function with dire consequences to the organism. The fate decisions of stem cells are guided by the interaction between extracellular signals from the local microenvironment and intrinsic factors that set the state of the cell, many of which are coordinated by transcriptional programs that are, in turn, is controlled by posttranslational modifications of histones or replacement of canonical histones with histone variants. Polycomb group (PcG) proteins partake in the modification of histones and influence the transcriptional state of genes. PcG proteins are involved in transcriptional regulation by inducing the methylation and ubiquitination of histone tails, which maintain the repression of target genes through cell divisions. Emerging evidence indicates that replacement of canonical histones with histone variants is also important in cell fate decisions. Here I show that PcG proteins Psc and Su(z)2 restrict proliferation and maintain the identity of the cyst stem cell (CySC) lineage in the Drosophila testis. Loss of Psc and Su(z)2 gene function in CySC but not in the germline stem cell (GSC) lineage resulted in the formation of a tumor composed of proliferative mutant cells of abnormal identity, likely due to the derepression of the Hox gene Abdominal-B. The resulting formation of tumor-like masses of proliferative cells interfered non-cell autonomously with maintenance of the germline most likely by displacing GSCs from their niche. I also show that the histone variant His2Av is required cell-autonomously for maintenance of adult stem cells in both somatic and germ cell lineages. GSCs lacking His2Av function were lost over time. Surprisingly, GSCs null mutant for His2Av gave rise to germ cells that underwent normal transit amplification divisions and differentiation to spermatocytes and spermatids. Similarly, CySCs lacking His2Av were also lost over time, but were able to give rise to differentiated cyst cells. My results indicate that His2Av and Stat92E likely maintain GSCs and CySCs independently. His2Av mutant GSCs expressed Stat92E and had properly oriented centrosomes, while Stat92E mutant GSCs expressed His2Av. My results expand knowledge chromatin states required for adult stem cell function, showing, for the first time, that a histone variant has a unique role in maintaining stem cells.

    Adult stem cells generate short-lived but highly differentiated cells that maintain and repair tissues which exhibit high turnover rates or tissues prone to wear and tear including sperm, skin, blood, intestinal epithelium and muscle. Adult stem cells typically reside in specialized microenvironments or stem cell niches, and a major goal of stem cell biology is to understand how these specialized microenvironments regulate adult stem cell self-renewal, proliferation and differentiation to maintain tissue homeostasis. Drosophila spermatogenesis provides an in vivo model system to investigate how the niche governs adult stem cell behavior. At the apical tip of the Drosophila testis, a cluster of post-mitotic support cells called the hub maintains two adult stem cell populations, germline stem cells (GSCs) and somatic cyst stem cells (CySCs). Hub cells secrete the Unpaired ligand, which activates JAK-STAT signaling in the neighboring GSCs and CySCs. JAK-STAT signaling and coordinated crosstalk between the germ line and soma together maintain GSCs and CySCs within the stem cell niche and direct proper association between their differentiating daughter cells. In this dissertation, I address two questions: (1) how a putative gene target of JAK-STAT influences stem cell self-renewal and maintenance and (2) how a transcriptional co-activator controls stem cell differentiation. To investigate the mechanism by which JAK-STAT signaling regulates GSC maintenance, I probed the function of profilin, a regulator of filamentous actin (F-actin). Profilin had been identified as a STAT target gene in the testis stem cell niche by performing chromatin immunoprecipitation with antibodies against phosphorylated STAT (activated STAT), followed by high throughput sequencing (ChIP-Seq) (Davies et al., submitted). It was already known that profilin mutants lose early germ cells (Gönczy and DiNardo, 1996) but the germline stem cell phenotype had not been characterized. I showed that GSCs were lost throughout development with markedly reduced GSC numbers in testes from late third instar larval hypomorphs and strong loss-of-function profilin mutants. By performing clonal analysis with null profilin alleles, I found that wild-type function of profilin was required cell autonomously for GSC maintenance. GSCs homozygous mutant for profilin detached from the hub and differentiated. F-actin and Adenomatous Polyposis Coli 2 (APC2) localization at the hub-GSC interface was disrupted in testes from profilin mutants. Interestingly, germline specific over-expression of APC2 rescued GSC loss in profilin hypomorphs. My studies suggested that profilin may be indirectly required to stabilize APC2 and [beta]-catenin at E-cadherin-based adherens junctions between hub cells and GSCs. Intercellular conversations between the germ line and the soma regulate the behavior of the stem cells in both lineages. I showed that a mutation in the MED20 gene, which encodes one of the subunits of Mediator, a multiprotein complex that acts as an interface between gene-specific regulatory proteins and the general transcriptional machinery to stimulate transcription, resulted in over-proliferation of both germline stem cells (GSCs) and somatic cyst stem cells (CySCs). Mediator function was required cell autonomously for CySCs to differentiate into somatic cyst cells, and non-autonomously for germ cell differentiation. This study reinforced the importance of crosstalk between stem cell lineages that work together to maintain tissue homeostasis.

    The centromere is a specialized chromatin domain that is required for kinetochore formation and chromosomal attachment to the mitotic spindle. In higher eukaryotes, centromere identity is independent of the underlying DNA sequence and is thought to be propagated through epigenetic mechanisms. One of the defining features of centromeric chromatin is the presence of the histone H3 variant CENP-A, which is localized exclusively at centromeres. Many fields of evidence suggest that CENP-A incorporation serves as the epigenetic mark maintaining centromere identity. CENP-A loading is under strict temporal control, and unlike conventional histones is uncoupled from DNA replication; instead, CENP-A is loaded exclusively during late anaphase through earl G1 of the cell cycle. Uncovering the mechanisms that control the precise timing and exclusive localization of CENP-A incorporation will deepen our understanding of aspects fundamental to cell division and epigenetics. In order to take an unbiased approach to discovering genes involved in centromeric function, we undertook a whole genome RNAi screen in Drosophila looking for genes whose depletion resulted in a loss of CENP-A phenotype. In our screen, we discovered that the constitutive centromere protein CENP-C and newly discovered protein CAL1 were in a complex with CENP-A and required CENP-A loading. Additionally, we discovered that RNAi of the drosophila homologues of EMI1 and Cyclin A result in a loss of CENP-A through premature activation of the anaphase promoting complex (APC), which we theorized resulted in the destruction of an unidentified APC substrate required for CENP-A loading. Intrigued by the connection between the timing of CENP-A loading and APC activation, we adapted an in-vitro degradation assay to assess the possibility that Drosophila CENP-A, CENP-C, or CAL1 could be our theorized APC substrate. Our assay indicated that these Drosophila proteins are not APC substrates. This finding led us to screen a candidate pool of 20 human proteins implicated in centromere function. Our screen discovered that HsKNL2/M18BP1, an essential centromere protein required for CENP-A loading, is an in-vitro substrate of the anaphase promoting complex. KNL2 degradation is mediated through destruction box (D-Box) and KEN box motifs. Mutation of the KEN and D-Boxes confers stability to KNL2 both in-vitro and in-vivo. Additionally, we discovered that centromeric localization of KNL2 depends on conserved residues in its SANTA (SANT-Associated) domain. Expression of GFP-nondegradable-KNL2 is able to rescue the CENP-A loading defect of KNL2 siRNA, indicating that KNL2 removal by the APC is not required for CENP-A loading. Further experiments are ongoing to characterize the phenotypic effects of KNL2 stabilization, particularly whether KNL2 stabilization is sufficient to decouple CENP-A loading from the cell cycle. We are also testing models to explain KNL2's localization to centromeres during periods of high APC activity and their consequences to centromere function. The discovery that KNL2 is an APC substrate provides a mechanistic link to explain the carefully regulated timing of CENP-A loading. Through a multidisciplinary approach we have assigned novel roles to genes required for CENP-A assembly in Drosophila; we further extended those principles to human biology and have possibly uncovered a mechanistic explanation for CENP-A's unique loading dynamics.

    Circumstantial evidence suggests vast post-transcriptional regulatory networks in eukaryotes. There are scores of examples of mRNAs with rich post-transcriptional lives, and dozens of RNA-binding proteins and noncoding RNAs are suggested to have regulatory functions. While eukaryotic genomes encode hundreds of RNA-binding proteins and metazoans also encode dozens to hundreds of regulatory noncoding RNAs, few RNA-binding proteins or regulatory noncoding RNAs have been studied systematically, leaving unanswered basic questions about the scope and organization of post-transcriptional regulation in any eukaryote. First, I present studies aimed at uncovering some of the basic principles of post-transcriptional regulation in eukaryotes, via searching for the RNA targets of 40 proteins in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae: a selective sample of the approximately 600 annotated and predicted RBPs as well as several proteins not annotated as RBPs. Second, I present a simple biochemical approach to identify direct targets of specific microRNAs, important noncoding regulatory RNAs, that regulate protein synthesis of most mammalian mRNAs. Third, I present experiments that uncover the magnitude and respective contributions of translational repression and mRNA decay of microRNA-mediated regulation. These studies apply simple, yet powerful approaches to systematically dissect various aspects of post-transcriptional regulation and uncover a wealth of novel information regarding regulation by RNA-binding proteins and microRNAs.

    Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells that are capable of both self-renewal and differentiation into a variety of specialized cells. Adult stem cell lineages have been identified in several organs including skin, blood, breast, intestine, bladder, skeletal muscle, prostate, and the testes. The changes in homeostatic conditions in these organs caused by tissue turnover or injury rely heavily on the pool of adult stem cells for cell replenishment. Therefore, the activity of adult stem cells must be tightly controlled, and many of these regulations are orchestrated by the stem cell niche, the local microenvironment in which stem cells reside. The fast generation cycle and the genetic tractability of fruit flies make the Drosophila testis stem cell niche an ideal system for the study of adult stem cell regulation. The Drosophila testis maintains two types of stem cells: germline stem cells (GSCs) which give rise to sperm, and cyst stem cells (CySCs) which differentiate into cyst cells that encapsulate germ cells. The somatic cyst cell lineage has been implicated to be required at several stages of spermatogenesis and play pivotal roles in germline proliferation, survival, and differentiation. This dissertation focuses on understanding the role of the cyst cell lineage in GSC maintenance and investigating the mechanisms by which cyst cells direct early germ cell differentiation. Previously, it has been proposed that CySCs are the source of instructive self-renewal cues for GSCs. In contrast to this model, I showed that early germ cells with GSC characteristics can be maintained in the absence of CySCs and cyst cells. These germ cells failed to enter the transit-amplifying program, which is regarded as the first step of differentiation in many adult stem cell lineages. My observations suggest that cyst cells provide a pro-differentiation environment for GSCs, and that this mechanism(s) may be repressed in CySCs which indirectly allow for GSC self-renewal. Encapsulation of germ cells by cyst cells is one of the differentiation-promoting mechanisms imposed by the soma on the germline, and I have uncovered that this process requires activation of the EGFR-Ras-MEK-MAPK pathway in differentiated cyst cells. Furthermore, I also showed that repression of EGFR activation in CySCs is important in maintaining the population of GSCs and CySCs at the niche, as premature activation of the pathway resulted in displacement of GSCs from the hub by somatic cells. Preliminary studies revealed a STAT target gene, Socs36E as a negative regulator of the EGFR pathway in CySCs to prevent out-competition of GSCs by somatic cells. To understand how the somatic cyst cells germline differentiation, I performed two genetic screens: an RNAi screen of genes that caused premature germ cell differentiation when misexpressed in the soma, and a misexpression screen of genes predicted to be cell-surface and secreted proteins. Three promising candidates were identified through these screens: two ribosomal subunits, Rpl13A and RpS10a; and a septate junction component, Neurexin IV. The two ribosomal proteins may be involved in the soma to promote germ cell encapsulation. Neurexin IV however, operates non-cell autonomously in cyst cells to regulate germ cell differentiation into spermatocytes. Together, the results of this dissertation emphasize the importance and complexity of the interaction between adult stem cells and their microenvironment in maintaining tissue homeostasis.

    Hedgehog (Hh) signaling during embryogenesis and adult tissue homeostasis involves the activation of the oncoprotein Smoothened (Smo), but little is known about its mode of regulation. We attempt to identify proteins which regulate Smo function by performing a large-scale proteomic screen using Smo as the bait. We identify Dlg5 as a novel Smo-interacting protein whose association with Smo is triggered by Hh. Depletion of Dlg5 leads to global destabilization of Smo protein and concomitant reduced ciliary accumulation. We find that that Dlg5 localizes to the basal bodies in cultured cells, and our evidence further suggests that a Dlg5-scaffolded protein complex at the basal body is required to regulate Smo prior to Smo entry into the primary cilia.

    Hematopoiesis is organized as a cellular hierarchy in which long-term self-renewing hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) give rise to all lineages of blood cells for the lifetime of an organism. Following the prospective isolation of mouse HSC in the late 1980s, research over the past two decades has focused on refining the phenotypic compartment where HSC reside, and identifying the numerous cell intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms important for their maintenance. Many of these pathways are misappropriated in hematopoietic malignancies such as leukemia. It has been proposed that like normal hematopoiesis, leukemia is organized as a cellular hierarchy in which a leukemic stem cell population (LSC) is uniquely able to self-renew and gives rise to the heterogeneous lineages of cells that compose the tumor. This thesis will cover the mechanisms regulating the behavior of normal hematopoietic stem cells and leukemic stem cells. First, phospho-specific flow cytometry was utilized to define the responsiveness of human HSC to cytokine stimulation. This direct biochemical analysis demonstrated that HSC respond directly and rapidly to a broader number of direct stimuli in vitro and in vivo than previously appreciated. This included Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor (G-CSF), a cytokine used clinically to mobilize HSC to the peripheral blood prior to bone marrow transplantation. The direct HSC response to G-CSF is shown to affect the behavior of the HSC pool in vitro (causing cell cycle entry and increased proliferation), and in vivo (negatively regulating active hematopoiesis in the short-term). Thus, it is proposed that cytokines, long known to impact the function of mature lineage cells, also are important for the steady-state regulation of HSC activity. Next, two mouse models of AML were utilized to determine the mechanisms important for regulation of LSC activity. It is demonstrated that the catalytic p110[lower case delta] subunit of Phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K), which is constitutively activated and drives proliferation in human AML blasts, is dispensable for de novo leukemogenesis and LSC activity in AML driven by retroviral transfer of MLL-AF9 or HoxA9-Meis1 (H9M) oncogenes into early hematopoietic progenitors. Finally, the LSC in H9M AML are identified. Surprisingly, multiple phenotypic compartments were equally enriched for LSC activity. This was also the case when LSC activity in MLL-AF9 driven AML was assessed. Putative genetic LSC maintenance signatures for each model were also identified. There was both overlap and stark contrast in cell surface phenotypes of the LSC-enriched compartments and the genetic LSC maintenance signatures in these closely related leukemias. These data suggest that like normal hematopoiesis, a hierarchy does exist in which self-renewing cells give rise to terminally differentiated progeny. However, unlike HSC activity, which can be isolated to a single compartment by cell surface phenotype that is commonly regulated between individuals, LSC activity is a cell state that can be independent of surface phenotype and with context-specific regulatory mechanisms.

    Naïve CD4+ T cells are precursor cells that differentiate into distinct lineages of T helper (TH) cells upon cellular activation. The work presented here describe how we identified the soluble factors required for the differentiation of human TH17 and TH9 cells, which are two novel TH subsets implicated in the pathogenesis of various autoimmune and allergic disorders, respectively. We also performed functional analysis with human TH1, TH2 and TH17 cells, demonstrating that different TH cells drive monocytes to differentiate into specialized DC subsets. Collectively, we believe that these data have significant implications for the treatment of inflammatory disorders. In order to determine the factors that drive human TH17 differentiation, we hypothesized that a subset of TLR ligands could induce PBMCs to secrete TH17-polarizing factors. We identified that conditioned media from TLR4- and TLR8/7-stimulated cultures could promote IL-17 production. Using a proteomics screening approach, we demonstrated that a combination of pro-inflammatory cytokines synergistically promote human TH17 differentiation. TH17-polarizing cytokines upregulated the expression of the transcription factor ROR[Gamma]t and drove the expansion of memory TH17 and TH1/17 cells. The data presented in Chapter 2 indicate that the pathways driving murine and human TH17 responses are quite different, which may diminish the value of various mouse studies in the treatment of TH17-driven diseases. In collaboration with the laboratory of Edgar Engleman, we demonstrate that TH cells mediate the differentiation of monocytes into distinct DCs. Importantly, TH17 cells drive the formation of TH17-promoting DCs (DCTh17), whereas TH1 and TH2 cells drive the formation of TH1- and TH2-promoting DCs (DCTh1 and DCTh2), respectively. Blocking the TH1 cytokine IFN-[Gamma] inhibited DCTh1 formation, whereas neutralizing the TH2 cytokines IL-4 and IL-13 inhibited DCTh2 formation. Studies of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis skin lesions indicate that TH cells are closely associated with monocytes and DCs in situ, suggesting that this pathway contributes to disease pathogenesis. These data illustrate a positive feedback loop between TH cells, monocytes and DCs that may contribute to the ongoing inflammation observed in various autoimmune and allergic disorders. In Chapter 4, the factors that promote human TH9 differentiation are characterized, and we provide evidence that IL-21 is a potent enhancer of IL-9 secretion. TH9 cells generated in vitro exhibit a heterogeneous phenotype based on the expression of the transcription factors GATA-3 and Foxp3. Finally, a small population of memory CD4+ T cells cultured under TH17-polarizing conditions secreted IL-9, IL-17 and IFN-[Gamma], suggesting considerable lineage plasticity among human TH cells. Taken together, these data indicate a complex cytokine network in the regulation of human TH17 and TH9 cells.

    Over the past few decades technological advances in transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and glycomics, along with the ability to selectively knockout genes of interest, have greatly advanced our understanding of the maternal-conceptus interactions that are essential for the establishment and maintenance of a successful pregnancy. This knowledge provides the basis for new research endeavors to address infertility, embryonic loss and recurrent abortion in humans, captive wild animals and important farm species. This book brings together current reviews from leading experts to address the diversity of mechanisms by which species establish and maintain pregnancy. Implantation in rodents, dogs, pigs, cattle, sheep, horses, primates, humans and embryonic diapause in wild species are discussed. The reviews provide readers with the latest knowledge on the role of the endometrial steroid receptors, adhesion factors, cytokines, interferons, steroids, prostaglandins, growth factors and immune cells involved in the regulation of conceptus development. .

    Cell surface receptor regulation maintains proper responses to external signals and disregulation of receptors can have drastic effects. We found that RabGEF1, a guanine exchange factor (GEF) for the endocytic regulating small GTPase Rab5, regulates IgE+antigen (Ag)-induced Ras signaling in mast cells and skin homeostasis in vivo. To further understand RabGEF1's role in mast cell function we investigated if RabGEF1 generally regulates mast cell signaling by examining a number of modes of mast cell activation. Like IgE+Ag stimulation, RabGEF1 deficient (-/-) mast cells demonstrated enhanced activation after exposure to stem cell factor (SCF), the ligand for the receptor tyrosine kinase c-kit. Enhanced responses correlated with delayed c-kit and IgE receptor (FcεRI) internalization suggesting a proximal role of RabGEF1 in regulating mast cell signaling events. To dissect the roles of RabGEF1 and its domains in regulating mast cell biology we lentivirally expressed a panel of RabGEF1 mutants in RabGEF1-/- mast cells. We found that RabGEF1 (1) harbors ubiquitin (Ub) ligase activity within an N-terminal A20 zinc finger domain, (2) binds to Ub and localizes to membranes through amino acids 1-150, (3) interacts with Rabaptin-5, a Rab5 effector, through a C-terminal coiled coil (CC) domain and, (4) activates Rab5 with a central VPS9 domain. Despite containing a number of domains, only the VPS9 was crucial to restore wildtype activation of RabGEF1-/- cells after IgE+Ag stimulation. Moreover, lack of the VPS9 or CC domain diminished Rabaptin-5 levels and reduced surface FcεRI and β1 expression on mast cells suggesting that these domains are important for receptor homeostasis. Using shRNA knockdown of Rabaptin-5 we identified a novel role for Rabaptin-5 in maintaining FcεRI and β1 surface expression by increasing surface stability and receptor half-life. The reduced FcεRI and β1 surface levels in Rabaptin-5 deficient cells attenuated sensitivity to antigen induced adhesion, migration, and cytokine production in these cells. Despite Rabaptin-5's in vitro documented role as a Rab5 effector, Rab5 dependant processes (i.e., receptor internalization or endosome fusion) were unaffected by Rabaptin-5 deficiency and challenge the current thoughts of Rab5 processes in intact cells. These data show the importance of receptor trafficking in regulating mast cell activation.

    Sexually reproducing organisms undergo meiotic recombination to increase genetic diversity and to ensure correct segregation of chromosomes at the first meiotic division. During meiotic recombination, DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) are deliberately induced, and a subset of the breaks are repaired as inter-homolog crossovers (COs). Inter-homolog COs provide physical connections between homologous chromosomes that enable them to segregate away from each other. Despite reliance on COs for chromosome segregation, few COs are made per chromosome pair, implying mechanisms for robust CO control. In addition, DNA breaks are potentially dangerous lesions, therefore DSB formation and repair must be tightly regulated, both to ensure the formation of COs, but also to protect against deleterious effects. This thesis provides new insights into mechanisms that regulate DSB formation and repair, using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans as a model organism. CO regulation mechanisms were probed by monitoring the repair outcome of a DSB induced at a defined site at different stages of meiotic progression, in WT and mutant situations. This analysis uncovered a previously unappreciated level of control in restricting CO number, which is to limit the duration of access to the homolog as a repair template. In addition, this work showed that when no competing breaks are present, a single induced DSB is converted to a CO with high efficiency. This feature helps achieve CO assurance. Insights into regulation of DSB formation were uncovered from the identification and characterization of novel protein DSB-2. DSB-2 is required for break formation, but is dispensable for later steps of meiotic recombination. DSB-2 localizes to chromatin during the time of break formation, suggesting it acts to promote competence for DSB formation. Both approaches presented in this thesis uncovered evidence for negative feedback regulatory mechanisms, suggesting a model wherein formation of CO-eligible recombination intermediates signals shutdown of DSB formation as well as shutdown of inter-homolog access. The proposed regulatory networks provide a mechanism to both ensure sufficient breaks and COs are made, and to shut down these processes to prevent deleterious effects as meiosis progresses.

    Microbes can colonize harsh and dynamic environments. Often, this ability depends on rapid responses through directed motility. Members of the Epsilon proteobacteria are found in many 'extreme' environments, including the human stomach. We discovered that Helicobacter pylori establish bacterial colonies deep in the gastric glands, and identified a novel protein, ChePep, necessary to colonize this niche. By tracking the movement of single bacteria we found that mutants lacking ChePep cannot control the rotation of their flagella and swim with abnormally frequent reversals and even sustain bursts of movement backwards. Genetic experiments show that ChePep regulates flagellar rotation through the chemotaxis signaling system. By examining H. pylori within a microscopic pH gradient, we determined that ChePep is critical for normal chemotactic behavior. We expressed ChePep from the zoonotic pathogen Campylobacter jejuni, and the deep sea hydrothermal vent inhabitant Caminibacter mediatlanticus in H. pylori and found that ChePep is functionally conserved across the [epsilon]-proteobacteria. ChePep represents a new family of chemotaxis regulators unique to the [epsilon]-proteobacteria, and illustrates the differing strategies that microbes have evolved to control motility.

    Aging in mammals is associated with a decline in the function and regenerative capacity of tissue specific stem cells. In the adult central nervous system the age-related decline of these functional stem/progenitor cells (NPCs), and subsequently neurogenesis, is correlated with impairments in cognitive functions including learning and memory. Interestingly, changes occurring in the systemic milieu of an organism, such as those induced through increased exercise, have been shown to partially mitigate this cellular decline. While previous studies have examined intrinsic molecular mechanisms underlying NPC aging and decreased neurogenesis at the cellular level, a gap still exists in elucidating how age-dependent NPC function is impaired by systemic changes associated with aging. This dissertation addresses the role of the aging systemic milieu in the regulation of adult neurogenesis and cognition, and seeks to identify individual factors responsible in part for the age-related decline. Chapter 1 reviews the cellular process of adult neurogenesis and discusses its regulation during aging by intrinsic and extrinsic factors, as well as its contribution to synaptic plasticity and cognitive functions. Chapter 2 focuses on the age-related decrease in adult neurogenesis and asks whether systemic molecular changes naturally occurring with age contribute to this decline. Using heterochronic parabiosis, in which the circulatory systems of two animals are adjoined, we show that blood-borne factors present in the systemic milieu can inhibit or promote adult neurogenesis in an age dependent fashion in mice. Furthermore, we demonstrate functional relevance for changes occurring in the systemic milieu, as exposing a young animal to an old systemic environment, or to plasma from old mice, decreased synaptic plasticity and impaired spatial learning and memory. Chapter 3 focuses on individual systemic factors and demonstrates that age-related changes in systemic chemokine levels negatively regulate neurogenesis and learning and memory. Using a targeted proteomic screen, we identified a conserved subset of blood borne chemokines - including CCL2/MCP-1 and CCL11/Eotaxin -- whose plasma levels correlate with reduced neurogenesis observed in normal and experimental (i.e. heterochronic parabiosis) aging. Additionally, mimicking an aged systemic environment by increasing the level of CCL11 in the periphery of young adult mice resulted in a decrease in neurogenesis and impaired spatial learning and memory. Chapter 4 focuses on [Beta]2-microglobulin (B2M), another identified systemic factor that increases with aging and negatively correlates with the age-related decline in neurogenesis, and examines its role in regulating adult hippocampal neurogenesis. Using primary cell models we show that exposure to recombinant B2M protein inhibits NPC function and neuronal differentiation in vitro. Furthermore, we show that local exposure of a young adult hippocampus to B2M decreases neurogenesis and impairs cognitive function in vivo. Additionally, we show that the inhibitory effects of B2M are mediated by MHCI. Lastly, using a genetic mouse model that lacks B2M expression we show that neurogenesis is improved in adult animals in an age-dependent manner. Chapter 5 contains a summary and conclusion of the results presented in this dissertation, highlighting the influence of the aging systemic milieu on neuroplasticity and cognition.

    Electrical activity is a potent trophic factor that promotes the survival of many populations of neurons. L-type calcium channels (LTCs) are particularly effective at promoting survival of neurons during development, in part by activating transcription factors such as CREB. Mutation of the LTC CaV1.2 causes Timothy Syndrome (TS), a disorder characterized by cardiac arrhythmias, webbing of fingers and toes, and autism. The TS mutation leads to loss of voltage-dependent inactivation (VDI) of the channel. Although it is known that VDI is critical for the transition between the open and resting states of the channel, the role that channel inactivation plays in cell signaling and neuronal development is poorly understood. The work in this dissertation shows that the TS mutation impairs CaV1.2-dependent neuronal survival and prevents activation of the transcription factor CREB. By using TS channels that contain pore mutations that prevent Ca2+ flux, we found that the ability of TS channels to cause apoptosis is independent of Ca2+ flux through the channel. Conversely, a novel leucine to proline mutation at position 1368 restores VDI to TS channels and prevents TS-dependent apoptosis and inhibition of CREB. These findings support the idea that CaV1.2 conveys two signals that together regulate activity-dependent neuronal survival and activation of CREB: a signal that depends on the channel conformation and a signal that depends on calcium influx through the channel. These results provide new insights into the mechanisms by which the L-type calcium channels activate transcription and regulate neuronal survival during development.

    Stem cell self-renewal is dynamically regulated in response to extrinsic stimuli, but the intrinsic mechanisms that mediate the effects of these stimuli remain elusive. Emerging evidence suggests that miRNAs, an abundant class of ~22-nt small regulatory RNAs, play key roles in controlling the post-transcriptional genetic programs in stem and progenitor cells. We systematically examined miRNA expression profiles in various normal and aberrant adult tissue-specific stem and progenitor cells. Delineation of miRNAs whose expression correlated with changes in the self-renewal properties during normal development and as the result of mutant perturbations permitted the identification of miRNAs that marked stem to progenitor transition, termed SPT-miRNAs. Expression of SPT-miRNAs correlated with the exit from a self-renewing state as well as reduced self-renewal capacity in various normal and leukemia stem cells, suggesting that they may play a role in post-transcriptional gene silencing of key mediators of stem cell self-renewal. Consistent with this hypothesis, premature expression of a subset of these miRNAs could diminish the reconstitution potential of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and the self-renewal of embryonic stem cells (ESCs). Furthermore, SPT-miRNAs targeted genes necessary for the self-renewal of HSCs, suggesting that up-regulation of these miRNAs permitted the efficient silencing of self-renewal programs during the stem to progenitor transition. Given the functional overlap of SPT-miRNAs in both embryonic and adult stem cells, we hypothesized that the expression of some SPT-miRNAs may be actively repressed by extrinsic signaling cues in stem cells at multiple developmental stages to potentiate their self-renewal. By subjecting ESCs to various culture conditions that diminished their self-renewal efficiency, we observed an up-regulation of a subset of SPT-miRNAs; in particular, members of the miR-181 family. Ectopic expression of this miRNA reduced ESC self-renewal whereas its deletion augmented ESC self-renewal in serum-free medium. These changes in self-renewal were attributable to simultaneous modulation of ESC proliferation and lineage commitment via target interactions with Lin28A, Spry4, and Dusp6. Finally, we found that the BMP-signaling pathway, necessary for the efficient self-renewal of ESCs, played a key role in the suppression of miR-181a. Collectively, these results reveal how extrinsic signaling cues mediate the quantitative post-transcriptional regulation of stem cell self-renewal programs via the modulation of miRNAs. Our study demonstrated one approach to identify and investigate the role of intrinsic regulators and provided novel insight into how to uncover the intrinsic regulators of stem cell self-renewal with implications on manipulation of stem cell expansion ex vivo.

    The FoxO family of transcription factors plays an important role in longevity and tumor suppression by regulating the expression of a wide range of target genes. FoxO3 has recently been found to be associated with extreme longevity in humans and to regulate the homeostasis of adult stem cell pools in mammals, which may contribute to longevity. The activity of FoxO3 is controlled by a variety of post-translational modifications that have been proposed to form a 'code' affecting FoxO3 subcellular localization, DNA binding ability, protein-protein interactions and protein stability. Lysine methylation is a key post-translational modification on histones that regulate chromatin accessibility and is a key part of the 'histone code'. However, whether lysine methylation plays a role in modulating FoxO3 activity has never been examined. I found that the methyltransferase Set9 directly methylates FoxO3 in vitro and in cells. Using a combination of tandem mass spectrometry and methyl-specific antibodies, I find that Set9 methylates FoxO3 at a single residue, lysine 271, a site previously known to be deacetylated by Sirt1. Methylation of FoxO3 by Set9 decreases FoxO3 protein stability, while slightly increasing FoxO3 transcriptional activity. The modulation of FoxO3 stability and activity by methylation may be critical for fine-tuning cellular responses to stress stimuli, which may in turn affect FoxO3's ability to promote tumor suppression and longevity. Post-translational modifications control many aspects of FoxO3 activity, including protein stability, subcellular localization and binding partner association. To analyze whether FoxO3 functions primarily alone, or in a complex with other factors, I used size exclusion chromatography to assess the size of the potential FoxO3 protein complexes in cellular extracts. I found that FoxO3 is present in fractions with a relative molecular weight larger ranging from 250 to 700 kDa. Interestingly, the cytoplasmic fraction of FoxO3 appears to be in a larger complex than the nuclear fraction, suggesting that FoxO3 is present in more than one protein complex in cells. To identify novel binding partners of FoxO3 that could be present in these large molecular-weight protein complexes, I conducted a tandem affinity purification (TAP) of dual tagged FoxO3 in HeLa S3 cells followed by liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) of the elution from the immunoprecipitation. I identified over 1,000 potential FoxO3 binding partners that were not present in the control immunoprecipitation. These candidate binding partners included protein kinases (e.g. mTOR, MAPKs), other tumor suppressors (e.g. p65, p130) and oncogenes (e.g.Myb), as well as proteins that contain a methyl lysine (e.g. WDR17, PHF3) and acetyl lysine (e.g. BAZ2B, BRD1) binding domains. Taken together, these results suggest that FoxO3 functions in large protein complexes that could affect FoxO3 activity. The formation of FoxO3-containing complexes could be triggered by FoxO3 post-translational modifications. By increasing our understanding of the regulation of FoxO3, as well identifying possible interacting proteins, we further our knowledge of the pathways important for both longevity and age related diseases, including cancer.

    MicroRNA (miRNA) genes, which encode an abundant class of ~22-nucleotide (nt), evolutionarily conserved small RNAs, control a fundamental layer of genetic programs at the post-transcriptional level. However, little is known about how the activity of miRNA genes is regulated and how the regulatory information controlling their activity is encoded. Interestingly, mature miRNAs can often be classified into large families consisting of members with identical seeds (nucleotides 2 through 8 of the mature miRNAs) and highly homologous ~22-nt mature miRNA sequences, but with divergent sequences and structural elements beyond their mature miRNAs. Here we investigated whether members of a miRNA gene family that encode identical or nearly identical mature miRNAs are functionally interchangeable in vivo and if not, why? We compare the activities of the mir-181 gene family in promoting double positive T cell development and show that miRNA genes that encode identical to nearly identical mature miRNAs can have distinct activities. The differences in activity between mir-181a-1 and mir-181c are largely determined by their unique primary/precursor-miRNA (pri/pre-miRNA) loop nucleotides, and the differences in activity between mir-181a-1 and mir-181b-1 are determined by both the pri/pre-miRNA loop and stem. Furthermore, the organization of mir-181a-1/b-1 in a cluster is important for its full activity. We also show that mir-181 family members can differentially regulate target genes quantitatively, and that some target genes can be upregulated. Taken together, we have demonstrated that regulatory information encoded in a miRNA gene beyond the mature miRNA plays a critical role in controlling the activity of the miRNA gene, suggesting that miRNA family members could have evolved different functions through their divergent miRNA gene sequences and structural elements beyond their mature miRNAs. Although, proteins may have evolved to recognize the structural and sequence elements of the pri/pre-miRNAs, we suggest that the regulatory information encoded in the structured pri/pre-miRNA may be directly interpreted through target and pri/pre-miRNA interactions.

    Bacteria have evolved robust systems to sense environmental stimuli and limit proliferation under unfavorable conditions. While bacterial defense mechanisms have been characterized, the integration of environmental signals into the regulation of growth and development remains for the most part a mystery. The goal of this work was to identify the mechanisms by which the aquatic bacterium C. crescentus integrates information from the environment into the regulation of growth and development. I studied the transcript and protein changes that occur in C. crescentus in response to nutritional deprivation. The integration of high-throughput transcriptome and proteome analyses allowed me to obtain a comprehensive view of the process. The transcriptome changes were the starting point for the identification of genetic regulatory pathways involved in the response to environmental challenge. The alternative sigma factor SigT, one of the key regulators identified, was shown to activate the expression of a core set of general starvation-stress response genes that are cell cycle regulated during normal development in C. crescentus, and are candidates to mediate the inhibition of growth and division occurring upon environmental challenge. Furthermore, the SigT pathway was shown to directly integrate information from the environment into the circuit that regulates cell cycle progression, through the post-transcriptional regulation of the CtrA master regulator. The molecular analyses were complemented with cell biology studies, which revealed the differential effects of starvation and osmotic stress on chromosome replication and polar morphogenesis in swarmer cells. Overall, this work contributes to the emerging understanding of how the well-characterized regulatory circuit that controls cell cycle progression in C. crescentus integrates environmental signals.

    "Bringing together the experience, perspective and expertise of Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, and Arthur Kleinman, Reimagining Global Health provides an original, compelling introduction to the field of global health. Drawn from a Harvard course developed by their student Matthew Basilico, this work provides an accessible and engaging framework for the study of global health. Insisting on an approach that is historically deep and geographically broad, the authors underline the importance of a transdisciplinary approach, and offer a highly readable distillation of several historical and ethnographic perspectives of contemporary global health problems.The case studies presented throughout Reimagining Global Health bring together ethnographic, theoretical, and historical perspectives into a wholly new and exciting investigation of global health. The interdisciplinary approach outlined in this text should prove useful not only in schools of public health, nursing, and medicine, but also in undergraduate and graduate classes in anthropology, sociology, political economy, and history, among others"--Provided by publisher.

    Relational competence the set of traits that allow people to interact with each other effectively enjoys a long history of being recorded, studied, and analyzed. Accordingly, Relational Competence Theory (RCT) complements theories that treat individuals' personality and functioning individually by placing the individual into full family and social context. The ambitious volume Relational Competence Theory: Research and Mental Health Applications opens out the RCT literature with emphasis on its applicability to interventions, and updates the state of research on RCT, examining what is robust and verifiable both in the lab and the clinic. The authors begin with the conceptual and empirical bases for the theory, and sixteen models demonstrate the range of RCT concerns and their clinical relevance, including: socialization settings for relational competence, the ability to control and regulate the self, relationship styles, intimacy and negotiation, the use of practice exercises in prevention and treatment of pathology, appendices featuring the Relational Answers Questionnaire and other helpful tools. Relational Competence Theory both challenges and confirms much of what we know about the range of human relationships, and is important reading for researchers, scholars, and students in personality and social psychology, psychotherapy, and couple and family counseling.

    "Cognitive neuroscientists increasingly claim that brain images generated by new brain imaging technologies reflect, correlate, or represent cognitive processes. In this book, William Uttal warns against these claims, arguing that, despite its utility in anatomic and physiological applications, brain imaging research has not provided consistent evidence for correlation with cognition. Uttal bases his argument on an extensive review of the empirical literature, pointing to variability in data not only among subjects within individual experiments but also in the new meta-analytical approach that pools data from different experiments. This inconsistency of results, he argues, has profound implications for the field, suggesting that cognitive neuroscientists have not yet proven their interpretations of the relation between brain activity captured by macroscopic imaging techniques and cognitive processes; what may have appeared to be correlations may have only been illusions of association. He supports the view that the true correlates are located at a much more microscopic level of analysis: the networks of neurons that make up the brain." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    As the population of patients with acute or chronic kidney disease grows, healthcare professionals need a resource that optimizes drug effectiveness while minimizing potential toxicity. Renal Pharmacotherapy is a comprehensive listing of dosage recommendations for patients with compromised renal function. This up-to-date and evidence-based reference closes several identified knowledge gaps concerning medications eliminated by the kidneys. Conveniently listed alphabetically by generic drug name, each drug has its own face page featuring typical dosing ranges, alternative dosing adjustments by strata of renal function, specific dosing for dialysis and other dosing schemes.This work will satisfy the dosing information needs of busy physicians involved in pharmacotherapy for patients with kidney disease, as well as pharmacists, nurses and students.

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the biological basis of renal tumors in childhood and the clinical approaches to their treatment. Recent advances in our understanding of the molecular genetics of Wilms and other renal tumors are placed in their clinical context, including the differing treatment approaches of immediate surgery or pre-operative chemotherapy. The challenges in applying this knowledge to improve risk stratification and to incorporate biologically targeted agents into front-line therapy are discussed. In addition, the current state of thinking of the two major clinical trial groups in these diseases is presented. All of the authors are experts from Europe and North America, and the book has been written specifically as an easy reference for the practising clinician and the research scientist. It lays the basis for understanding the future direction of clinical and translational research to improve outcomes in patients with childhood renal tumors and will prove indispensable for those treating or researching into these diseases.

    This book describes the recent advances in the understanding of the development and management of renal vascular disease (RVD). Current perspectives regarding the epidemiology of atherosclerotic RVD, its clinical manifestations, and the interaction with injury pathways related to the kidney have evolved considerably, and the widespread introduction of non-invasive methods for identification of RVD using ultrasound, CT, and MR imaging has allowed more facile identification of these diseases than ever before. Renal Vascular Disease provides an accessible, up-to-date summary of the pathophysiology and management of RVD. The clinical paradigms that are emerging in the field, both in regards to RVD and its role in chronic kidney disease (CKD), cardiovascular risk, and the cardiorenal syndromes are discussed in this comprehensive text, making it an essential resource for clinicians and investigators who tackle the challenges of RVD.
