Covariance-Based Sample Selection for Heterogeneous Data: Applications to Gene Expression and Autism Risk Gene Detection

Kevin Z. Lin, Han Liu & Kathryn Roeder
Risk for autism can be influenced by genetic mutations in hundreds of genes. Based on findings showing that genes with highly correlated gene expressions are functionally interrelated, “guilt by association” methods such as DAWN have been developed to identify these autism risk genes. Previous research analyzes the BrainSpan dataset, which contains gene expression of brain tissues from varying regions and developmental periods. Since the spatiotemporal properties of brain tissue are known to affect the gene...

Corporate environmental responsibility and employees’ pro-environmental behaviors at work: insights from organizational identification and workplace spirituality perspective

Feng Yang & Lan Gao
Although corporate environmental responsibility (CER) can influence employees’ attitudes and behaviors, little research has been done to explain the effect of different dimensions of CER (e.g. substantive and symbolic CER) on employees’ pro-environmental behaviors at work, and further to explore the underlying mechanism and the boundary condition of this effect. This research built a theoretical model to explain how and when substantive and symbolic CER influences employees’ pro-environmental behaviors. 188 matched supervisor-subordinate dyads were collected...

However, there is still a need for improved transgalactosylation activity of β-galactosidases and reaction conditions of GOS production in order to maximize GOS output and reduce production costs. In this study, a β-galactosidase gene, galA, from Bacillus circulans was expressed in Pichia pastoris, which not only hydrolyzed lactose but also had strong...

Silmitasertib-induced macropinocytosis promoting DDP intracellular uptake to enhance cell apoptosis in oral squamous cell carcinoma

Shaojuan Song, Xin Xia, Jiajia Qi, Xiaopei Hu, Qian Chen, Jiang Liu, Ning Ji & Hang Zhao
Cisplatin (DDP) is a first-line chemotherapeutic drug applied for the treatment of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The anticancer activity of DDP is tightly linked to its intracellular uptake. It is unwise to increase the DDP intake by increasing the dose or shortening the dosing interval because of the severe systemic toxicity (nephrotoxicity, ototoxicity and neurotoxicity) in DDP application. The main uptake pathways of DDP include passive diffusion and active transporter transport. Therefore, finding additional...
