Herein, we describe the analysis and mapping of cDNA clones encoding variant forms of the human homolog of the canine 180-kDa ribosome receptor (p180). One form, similar to the chicken ES/130 homolog, possesses a large uninterrupted C-terminal region composed predominantly of heptad repeats predicted to form an alpha-helical double-stranded coiled-coil rod.(More)
During 1977 a survey was undertaken by practising veterinary surgeons of the incidence of different lesions causing lameness in dairy cattle. Forty-eight veterinary practices participated and they treated 7526 cases of lameness in 1821 herds. The average incidence of lameness among all cows was 5.5 per cent and the annual incidence among practices ranged(More)
Ten melanocytomas from 10 cattle were diagnosed by histopathologic examination of biopsy specimens submitted to the Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory, University of Missouri, between 1 January 1986 and 31 December 1993. One tumor was congenital; the others were first noticed between 2 months and 2 years of age (means = 9.9 months). Six tumors(More)
The integrins are a large family of cell adhesion molecules consisting of noncovalently associated alphabeta heterodimers. We have cloned and sequenced the cDNA of a novel human integrin alpha-subunit, designated alpha11. The alpha11 cDNA encodes a mature protein with a large 1120-residue extracellular domain that contains an I-domain of 207 residues and is(More)
Arrangements for extramural education including "seeing practice" experience in nine European veterinary schools (Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool, Helsinki, Stockholm, Hannover, Ghent, Toulouse and Vienna) are described. Considerable differences existed between three UK schools, and between them and the Continental schools, where arrangements were usually(More)
