The cysteine endoproteases (EP)-A and EP-B were purified from green barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) malt, and their identity was confirmed by N-terminal amino acid sequencing. EP-B cleavage sites in recombinant type-C hordein were determined by N-terminal amino acid sequencing of the cleavage products, and were used to design internally quenched, fluorogenic(More)
M utations in the voltage gated potassium channels KCNQ2 (OMIM 602235) and KCNQ3 (OMIM 602232) are associated with an autosomal dominant idiopathic epilepsy syndrome of newborns, benign familial neonatal seizures (BFNS) (OMIM 121200). BFNS is char-acterised by unprovoked partial seizures typically beginning when the infant is around three days old. BFNS(More)
Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) storage proteins, which have a high content of proline (Pro) and glutamine, are cleaved by cysteine endoproteases to yield peptides with a Pro next to the N-terminal and/or C-terminal amino acid residues. A peptidase cleaving after Xaa-Pro- at the N terminus of peptides was purified from green barley malt. It was identified as a(More)
Isaxonine phosphate is known to induce acute hepatitis which in most cases is reversible after withdrawal of the drug. The authors describe 4 new cases of hepatitis which differ from those previously reported by their evolutive and pathological features. In 3 cases, the outcome was fatal within a delay of 15-40 days despite discontinuation of the drug, and(More)
An arterial branch, companion of the external saphenous artery, has been described on rare occasions by anatomists. Certain exceptional complications of sclerosant treatment of the varicose external saphenous vein can only be explained by accidental injection of this arteriole. The accidental injection produces cutaneous ischaemia of variable severity and(More)
