MRI-based methods to detect placental and fetal brain abnormalities in utero.
London, United Kingdom. In J Reprod Immunol, 02 Aug 2015
Adverse pregnancy outcomes such as obstetric antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) and preterm birth (PTB), characterized by placental insufficiency and abnormal fetal brain development, in mice and humans have been associated with activation of inflammatory pathways, in particular the complement cascade.
Preterm birth and its long-term effects: methylation to mechanisms.
Atlanta, United States. In Biology (basel), 2013
This brief review explores the potential role of DNA methylation in preterm birth (PTB) and its possible long-term consequences and provides an overview of the physiological processes central to PTB and recent DNA methylation studies of PTB.
Evolutionary dynamics of gene and isoform regulation in Mammalian tissues.
Cambridge, United States. In Science, 2013
Thousands of previously unknown, lineage-specific, and conserved alternative exons were identified; widely conserved alternative exons had signatures of binding by MBNL, PTB, RBFOX, STAR, and TIA family splicing factors, implicating them as ancestral mammalian splicing regulators.
