AGENCY:
ACTION:
VerDate Sep<11>2014
18:51 Oct 30, 2014
Notice is hereby given that
the Office of Research Integrity (ORI)
has taken final action in the following
case:
Bijan Ahvazi, Ph.D., National
Institutes of Health: Based on the report
of an investigation conducted by the
National Institutes of Health (NIH) and
additional analysis by ORI in its
oversight review, ORI found that Dr.
Bijan Ahvazi, former Director of the
Laboratory of X-ray Crystallography,
National Institute of Arthritis and
Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases
(NIAMS), NIH, engaged in research
misconduct in research supported by
the Intramural Program at NIAMS, NIH.
ORI found that Respondent engaged
in research misconduct by falsifying
data related to or in the following
published papers:
1. Ahvazi, B., Boeshans, K.M., Idler,
W., Baxa, U., & Steinert, P.M.
‘‘Structural basis for the coordinated
regulation of transglutaminase 3 by
guanine nucleotides and calcium/
magnesium.’’ J. Biol. Chem.
279(8):7180–92, 2004 Feb 20
(withdrawn) (hereinafter ‘‘JBC 2004a’’)
2. Ahvazi, B., Boeshans, K.M., &
Steinert, P.M. ‘‘Crystal structure of
transglutaminase 3 in complex with
BMP: Structural basis for nucleotide
specificity.’’ J. Biol. Chem. 279:26716–
25, 2004 (withdrawn) (hereinafter ‘‘JBC
2004b’’)
3. Ahvazi, B., Boeshans, K.M., Idler,
W.,& Cooper, A.J.L. ‘‘Crystal structure of
transglutaminase 3-cystamine complex:
Binding of two cystamines to the
nucleotide-binding pocket. M6:06060,
SUMMARY:
To encourage the submission of
public comments on the community
support performance of Bank members,
on or before November 17, 2014, each
Bank will notify its Advisory Council,
nonprofit housing developers,
community groups and other interested
parties in its district of the members of
the Bank selected for this review cycle.
12 CFR 1290.2(b)(2)(ii). In reviewing a
member for community support
compliance, FHFA will consider any
public comments it has received
concerning the member. 12 CFR
1290.2(d). To ensure consideration by
FHFA, comments concerning the
community support performance of
members selected for this review cycle
must be submitted to FHFA, either by
electronic mail to
[email protected]
fhfa.gov, or by fax to 202–649–4130, on
or before December 15, 2014.

Submitted to J. Biol. Chem., 2006
(rejected) (hereinafter ‘‘JBC 2006’’).
Specifically, ORI finds that
Respondent:
1. Falsely labeled Figure 3A in JBC
2004b representing an isothermal
calorimetric titration (ITC) experiment
using guanine monophosphate (GMP)
and transglutaminase 3 (TGase 3) when
the figure was actually a relabeled
version of an unrelated experiment that
Respondent previously published as
Figure 1A in JBC 2004a.
2. falsified Figure 4B, Figure 4C, and
Figure 6D in JBC 2004b and Figure 5E
in JBC 2006, by altering the original data
in the following ways to represent the
desired experiment:
a. Falsified Figure 4B in JBC 2004b, by
adding multiple data points to
titration curves for four different
concentrations of TGase 3 bound by
different concentrations of tagged
GTPgS and deleting two (2) outlying
data points from one of the curves
b. falsified Figure 4C in JBC 2004 b,
representing a competition assay for
the release of tagged GTPgS bound
to TGase 3, by (1) falsely claiming
that the release of the tagged
nucleotide occurred with the
addition of untagged GMP, when
the result was from an assay using
untagged GDP, (2) adding
additional data points onto the
titration curves, and (3) altering the
scale of the abscissa
c. falsified Figure 6D in JBC 2004b, by
using the false Figure 4B to also
represent an additional competition
experiment using unmodified
nucleotide analog compounds and

asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES
ATP; specifically, Respondent (1)
falsified the units and labels of the
axes, (2) falsified the labels of the
curves, and (3) vertically inverted
the curves
d. falsified Figure 5E in the JBC 2006
manuscript, representing a
competition experiment for the
release of tagged GTPgS bound to
TGase 3 with the addition of
cystamine, when the actual
experiment was a competition
experiment with the addition of
untagged nucleotides.
Dr. Ahvazi has entered into a
Voluntary Settlement Agreement
(Agreement) and has voluntarily agreed
for a period of two (2) years, beginning
on October 7, 2014:
(1) To have his U.S. Public Health
Service (PHS) research supervised and
to notify any employer(s)/institution(s)
at which he may participate in PHS
funded projects of the terms of his
supervision; Respondent agrees that
prior to the submission of an
application for PHS support for a
research project on which the
Respondent’s participation is proposed
and prior to Respondent’s participation
in any capacity on PHS-supported
research, Respondent shall ensure that a
plan for supervision of Respondent’s
duties is submitted to ORI for approval;
the supervision plan must be designed
to ensure the scientific integrity of
Respondent’s research; Respondent
agrees that he shall not participate in
any PHS-supported research until such
a supervision plan is submitted to and
approved by ORI; Respondent agrees to
maintain responsibility for compliance
with the agreed upon supervision plan;
(2) that any institution employing him
to work on PHS-supported projects shall
submit, in conjunction with each
application for PHS funds, or report,
manuscript, or abstract involving PHSsupported research in which
Respondent is involved, a certification
to ORI that the data provided by
Respondent are based on actual
experiments or are otherwise
legitimately derived and that the data,
procedures, and methodology are
accurately reported in the application,
report, manuscript, or abstract; and
(3) to exclude himself voluntarily
from serving in any advisory capacity to
PHS including, but not limited to,
service on any PHS advisory committee,
board, and/or peer review committee, or
as a consultant.
