The SnRK2 family members are plant-specific serine/threonine kinases involved in plant response to abiotic stresses and abscisic acid (ABA)-dependent plant development. SnRK2s have been classed into three groups; group 1 comprises kinases not activated by ABA, group 2 comprises kinases not activated or activated very weakly by ABA, and group 3 comprises(More)
1. This paper proposes that the neuropsychiatric symptoms of tardive dyskinesia, akathisia and pseudoparkinsonian tremor are modulated by a noradrenergic pathway that projects from the locus coeruleus to the limbic system. 2. The proposed pathway is found to the consistent with neuroanatomical and neurochemical data in the literature. 3. The proposed(More)
Adrenoceptors were among the first neurotransmitter receptors identified in glial cells, but it is not known whether these receptors meditate glial responses during neuronal activity. We show that repetitive nerve activity evoked a rise of intracellular calcium in Bergmann glia and neighboring Purkinje neurons of cerebellar slices of mice. The glial but not(More)
BACKGROUND In a phase 3, randomised, non-inferiority trial, accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) for patients with stage 0, I, and IIA breast cancer who underwent breast-conserving treatment was compared with whole-breast irradiation. Here, we present 5-year follow-up results. METHODS We did a phase 3, randomised, non-inferiority trial at 16(More)
This case report describes a schizophrenic patient who developed akathisia and tremor following neuroleptic pharmacotherapy with fluphenazine decanoate. The patient also suffered from familial (benign essential) tremor. The patient's neuroleptic-induced extrapyramidal side effects were not relieved by anticholinergic antiparkinson drugs or by phenobarbital.(More)
Phosphorylation and dephosphorylation events play an important role in the transmission of the ABA signal. Although SnRK2 [sucrose non-fermenting1-related kinase2] protein kinases and group A protein phosphatase type 2C (PP2C)-type phosphatases constitute the core ABA pathway, mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways are also involved in plant(More)
PURPOSE The estimation of cosmetic effect in 93 patients with early breast cancer treated with breast conserving surgery (BCS) followed by combined radiotherapy, including HDR brachytherapy (HDR-BT) boost. MATERIAL AND METHODS After BCS (tumorectomy or quadrantectomy) external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) was used in total dose of 50 Gy for the whole(More)
SNF1-related protein kinases 2 (SnRK2s) are key regulators of the plant response to osmotic stress. They are transiently activated in response to drought and salinity. Based on a phylogenetic analysis SnRK2s are divided into three groups. The classification correlates with their response to abscisic acid (ABA); group 1 consists SnRK2s non-activated in(More)
PURPOSE The object of this study was to analyze the outcome of salvage HDR brachytherapy treatment after local failure, for patients with prostate specific antigen (PSA) failure without distant metastasis, after external beam radiation and HDR brachytherapy treatment, or after radical prostatectomy, with or without hormonal therapy. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
PURPOSE The primary aim of this work was to analyze feasibility of combined treatment of retroperitoneal sarcomas (RS): surgery (S) and intraoperative brachytherapy (IOBRT). The secondary aim was to analyze results and complications after this treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS 84 patients with retroperitoneal sarcomas were qualified for combined treatment(More)
