Utility of mosquito surveillance data for spatial prioritization of vector control against dengue viruses in three Brazilian cities.
BACKGROUND: Vector control remains the primary defense against dengue fever. Its success relies on the assumption that vector density is related to disease transmission. Two operational issues include the amount by which ...
Endothelial function and insulin sensitivity during acute non-esterified fatty acid elevation: Effects of fat composition and gender.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: We have reported that adverse effects on flow-mediated dilation of an acute elevation of non-esterified fatty acids rich in saturated fat (SFA) are reversed following addition of long-chain (LC) n-3 ...
Single-molecule folding mechanisms of the apo- and Mg(2+)-bound states of human neuronal calcium sensor-1.
Neuronal calcium sensor-1 (NCS-1) is the primordial member of a family of proteins responsible primarily for sensing changes in neuronal Ca(2+) concentration. NCS-1 is a multispecific protein interacting with a number of ...
