  • In Vivo Assessment of Increased Oxidation of Branched-Chain Amino Acids in Glioblastoma 

    Suh, Eul Hyun; Hackett, Edward P.; Wynn, R. Max; Chuang, David T.; Zhang, Bo; Luo, Weibo; Sherry, A. Dean; Park, Jae Mo (Nature Publishing Group, 2019-01-23)
    Altered branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) metabolism is a distinctive feature of various cancers and plays an important role in sustaining tumor proliferation and aggressiveness. Despite the therapeutic and diagnostic ...
  • A Novel Inhibitor of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Kinase Stimulates Myocardial Carbohydrate Oxidation in Diet-Induced Obesity 

    Wu, C. -Y; Satapati, S.; Gui, W.; Max Wynn, R.; Sharma, G.; Lou, M.; Qi, X.; Burgess, S. C.; Malloy, C.; Khemtong, C.; Sherry, A. Dean; Chuang, D. T.; Merritt, M. E.
    The pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDC) is a key control point of energy metabolism and is subject to regulation by multiple mechanisms, including posttranslational phosphorylation by pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase (PDK). ...
  • Influence of Dy³⁺ and Tb³⁺ Doping on ¹³C Dynamic Nuclear Polarization 

    Niedbalski, Peter; Parish, Christopher; Kiswandhi, Andhika; Fidelino, L.; Khemtong, C.; Hayati, Z.; Song, L.; Martins, Andr©; Sherry, A. Dean; Lumata, Lloyd L. (American Institute of Physics Inc, 2017-01-03)
    Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) is a technique that uses a microwave-driven transfer of high spin alignment from electrons to nuclear spins. This is most effective at low temperature and high magnetic field, and with ...
  • A Novel Class of Polymeric pH-Responsive MRI CEST Agents 

    Zhang, Shanrong; Zhou, K.; Huang, G.; Takahashi, Masaya; Sherry, A. Dean; Gao, Jinming (2013-05-26)
    In this communication, we report that ionizable, tertiary amine-based block copolymers can be used as pH-responsive contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) through the chemical exchange saturation transfer ...
  • A Europium(Ⅲ)-Based PARACEST Agent for Sensing Singlet Oxygen by MRI 

    Song, Bo; Wu, Yunkou; Yu, Mengxiao; Zhao, Piyu; Zhou, Chen; Kiefer, Garry E.; Sherry, A. Dean (2013-04-04)
    A europium(Ⅲ) DOTA-tetraamide complex was designed as a MRI sensor of singlet oxygen (¹O₂). The water soluble, thermodynamically stable complex reacts rapidly with ¹O₂ to form an endoperoxide derivative that results in an ...
