Changes in lung sialidases in male and female mice after bleomycin aspiration

Darrell Pilling, Kyle Sahlberg, Wensheng Chen & Richard H. Gomer
Aim of the study: Sialidases, also called neuraminidases, are enzymes that cleave terminal sialic acids from glycoconjugates. In humans and mice, lung fibrosis is associated with desialylation of glycoconjugates and upregulation of sialidases. There are four mammalian sialidases, and it is unclear when the four mammalian sialidases are elevated over the course of inflammatory and fibrotic responses, whether tissue resident and inflammatory cells express different sialidases, and if sialidases are differentially expressed in male and...

Block-wise Variable Selection for Clustering via Latent States of Mixture Models

Beomseok Seo, Lin Lin & Jia Li
Mixture modeling is a major paradigm for clustering in statistics. In this paper, we develop a new block-wise variable selection method for clustering by exploiting the latent states of the hidden Markov model on variable blocks or the Gaussian mixture model. The variable blocks are formed by depth-first-search on a dendrogram created based on the mutual information between any pair of variables. It is demonstrated that the latent states of the variable blocks together with...
