Thyroid hormones (TH) are involved in normal differentiation, growth, and metabolism in several tissues of all vertebrates. Their actions are mediated by the TH receptors (TRs), members of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily. These receptors are transcription factors that bind to DNA on specific sequences, the TR response element (TREs), in promoters(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Excess weight is a widespread condition related to increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). Sarcopenia is a catabolic pathway common of the aging process and also associated with CHD. In the elderly, both changes occur concurrently and it remains unclear the relative contribution on CHD risk. We aimed to investigate whether(More)
The study of magnetic phenomena in nanometer scale is essential for development of new technologies and materials. It also leads to a better understanding of magnetic properties of matter. An approach to the study of magnetic phenomena is the use of a physical model and its computational simulation. For this purpose, in previous works we have developed a(More)
This paper addresses the problem of rectangular hexagonal mesh generation for surface modeling. Hexagonal grids are important for several applications such as the simulation of carbon nanostructures. A fast and accurate method to obtain a rectangular region over a hexagonal grid is proposed. Strips of hexagons defined by the Hamada indexes are constructed(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the high incidence and mortality of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) among the very elderly, risk markers for this condition remain poorly defined. This study was designed to identify independent markers of STEMI among individuals carefully selected for being healthy or manifesting STEMI in < 24 h. METHODS We enrolled(More)
