Genetic and biochemical analysis of a novel Ambler class A β-Lactamase responsible for cefoxitin resistance in Bacteroides species.
(East Carolina University, 1993-05)
A clinical isolate of Bacteroides vulgatus was resistant to tetracycline, clindamycin, ampicillin, cephaloridine, cefoxitin, and other 13-lactam antibiotics except imipenem. 13-Lactam resistance was mediated by a ...

Calponin interaction with alpha-actinin-actin: evidence for a structural role for calponin.
(East Carolina University, 1999-12)
The purpose of this study was to address the paradox of calponin localization with a-actinin and filamin, two proteins with tandem calponin homology (CH) domains, by determining the effect of these proteins on the binding ...
Neurogenic inflammation and sensitivity to environmental chemicals.
(East Carolina University, 1993-08)
Neurogenic inflammation as a pathway distinct from antigen-driven, immune-mediated inflammation may play a pivotal role in understanding a broad class of environmental health problems resulting from chemical exposures. ...
