Array painting is a technique that uses microarray technology to rapidly map chromosome translocation breakpoints. Previous methods to map translocation breakpoints have used fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and have consequently been labor-intensive, time-consuming and restricted to the low breakpoint

The skin innate immune response to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) culminates in the formation of an abscess to prevent bacterial spread and tissue damage. Pathogen recognition receptors (PRRs) dictate the balance between microbial control and injury. Therefore, intracellular brakes are

Myeloma remains a virtually incurable malignancy. The inevitable evolution of multidrug-resistant clones and widespread clonal heterogeneity limit the potential of traditional and novel therapies to eliminate minimal residual disease (MRD), a reliable harbinger of relapse. Here, we show potent anti-myeloma

Neuroinflammation is involved in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD) and other neurodegenerative disorders. We show that lack of PINK1- a mitochondrial kinase linked to recessive familial PD - leads to glia type-specific abnormalities of innate immunity. PINK1 loss enhances
