Nociceptive pathways with first-order neurons located in the trigeminal ganglion (TG) provide sensory innervation to the head, and are responsible for a number of common chronic pain conditions, including migraines, temporomandibular disorders and trigeminal neuralgias. Many of those conditions are associated with inflammation. Yet, the mechanisms of(More)
The aortas of 11 pigs (aged 1-3 yr) with homozygous von Willebrand's disease (vWd) were compared with those of 11 normal pigs of the same ages. Six of the controls exhibited multiple arteriosclerotic plaques with intimal thickening of 63-130 mum. In contrast, none of the pigs with vWd had multiple plaques, and only one had a lesion >2 mm in diameter. In a(More)
STENOSIS of the outflow tract of the left ventricle is a disease of serious and often of fatal consequence. The form of obstruction varies, but most commonly it is a discrete ridge of fibrous tissue that projects into the left ventricle completely encircling the out-flow tract.' In some instances this fibrous ridge may be accompanied by bulging and(More)
We describe a stratagem for identifying new mutations in the galactose-1-phosphate uridyl transferase (GALT) gene. GALT enzyme activity and isoforms were defined in erythrocytes from probands and their first-degree relatives. If the biochemical phenotypes segregated in an autosomal recessive pattern, we screened for common mutations by using multiplex PCR(More)
