Two Mechanisms Determine the Barber-Pole Illusion.
In J Vis, 01 Oct 2015
(2) Reverse-phi barberpole stimuli are seen exclusively in the forward (feature, third-order) BPI direction when presented at 2.75 Hz and exclusively in the opposite (Fourier, first-order) BPI direction at 21.5 Hz. (3) The BPI in barber poles with scalloped edges (Badcock, McKendrick, and Ma-Wyatt, VisRes, 2003) is much weaker than in normal straight-edge barber poles for 2.75 Hz stimuli but not in 21.5 Hz stimuli.

In addition, the expression of several chemokine- and cytokine-encoding genes, which are related to Th2 and Treg cell mediated immune responses, were analyzed in mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) isolated from myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88)/TIR-associated proteins (TIRAP) and Toll receptor-associated activator of interferons (TRIF) adapter protein deficient and wild type (WT) mice.

Identification of miR-145 and miR-146a as mediators of the 5q- syndrome phenotype.
Vancouver, Canada. In Nat Med, 2010
We show that deletion of chromosome 5q correlates with loss of two miRNAs that are abundant in hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs), miR-145 and miR-146a, and we identify Toll-interleukin-1 receptor domain-containing adaptor protein (TIRAP) and tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor-6 (TRAF6) as respective targets of these miRNAs.
