Rat genomic DNA was isolated by homology with Cdx1, a murine homeogene selectively expressed in intestinal cells of endodermal origin. Southern blot analysis indicated that the rat genome contains a single or a small number of closely related Cdx gene(s). A major 1.7 kb Cdx mRNA was detected in neonate, suckling and adult rats whereas a 6.5 kb mRNA was(More)
A semiquantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test (Instant IA D-dimer) and a new quantitative rapid and individual test (STA-Liatest DDi) were compared with the reference microplate ELISA (Asserachrom D-Di) for D-dimer testing in 142 patients clinically suspected of pulmonary embolism, on the basis of clinical symptoms and signs,(More)
BACKGROUND MYH-associated polyposis (MAP) is an autosomal recessive inherited disease. People with MAP tend to develop multiple adenomatous colon polyps during their lifetime and have an increased risk of colorectal cancer. MAP has only recently been described and there is much to be learned about the condition. Recessively inherited mutations in the base(More)
The vimentin gene encodes an intermediate filament protein expressed in the parietal endoderm, mesodermal, and early neural cells in vivo but by most in vitro-cultured cells regardless of their embryonic origin. Here we show that the vimentin gene promoter is very active in F9 embryonal carcinoma cells and increases in activity during differentiation. Using(More)
We give a new characterization of quasilinear sequence transformations; we prove that any quasilinear transformation can be represented by its kernel. This approach is new and allows one to give a general result of convergence acceleration and tools for the construction of new quasilinear transformations.
OBJECTIVE The Deep-Breathing (DB) test is of major importance in the evaluation of the vagal response (VR). We applied this test to assess the VR in a group of subjects with functional (neurological, cardiovascular or digestive) symptoms unexplained by standard cardiac examination and to compare it with the VR measured in a group of healthy controls.

PURPOSE To evaluate (i) the appropriateness, safety, and patient outcomes after placement of the VenaTech LP caval filter and (ii) the success of filter insertion through various venous access routes. MATERIALS AND METHODS An open multicenter prospective observational study was conducted in 12 European centers, including an initial part limited to four(More)
