  9. The c-Cbl ubiquitin ligase regulates nuclear β-catenin and angiogenesis by its tyrosine phosphorylation mediated through the Wnt signaling pathway.

    Journal of Biological Chemistry 290(20):12537 (2015) PMID 25784557 PMCID PMC4432275

    Wnt signaling plays important roles in both the tumor-induced angiogenesis and tumorigenesis through the transcriptionally active nuclear β-catenin. Recently, c-Cbl was identified as a unique E3 ubiquitin ligase targeting the active nuclear β-catenin. However, little is known about the molecular...
  10. An adaptive mesh method for 1D hyperbolic conservation laws

    Applied Numerical Mathematics 91:11 (2015)

    An adaptive method is developed for solving one-dimensional systems of hyperbolic conservation laws, which combines the rezoning approach with the finite volume weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) scheme. An a posteriori error estimate, used to equidistribute the mesh, is obtai...
