Combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD) has been linked with rare abnormalities in genes encoding transcription factors necessary for pituitary development. We have isolated LHX3, a gene involved in a new syndrome, using a candidate-gene approach developed on the basis of documented pituitary abnormalities of a recessive lethal mutation in mice(More)
An increased adherence of leukocytes to the vascular endothelium appears to be a crucial event in the development of atherosclerosis. The role of endothelial cell adhesion molecules is gaining increasingly interest in this context. Several studies show an influence of lipoproteins, especially low-density-lipoproteins on adhesion molecule stimulation. The(More)
Cerebellar cysts are rare findings in pediatric neuroimaging and rather characteristic for dystroglycanopathies and GPR56-related encephalopathy. We aim to report on seven children with cerebellar cysts showing absence of weakness and ruling out mutations within eight dystroglycanopathy genes and GPR56. Data about neurological and ophthalmological features,(More)
Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a rare and fatal disorder of early infancy, which affects predominantly the mononuclear phagocyte system and is characterized by the presence of fever, hepatosplenomegaly and cytopenia. Neurological symptoms can be extremely variable, ranging from irritability, and convulsions to focal neurological signs. They often(More)
Several studies showed a diminished production of the endothelium-derived relaxing factor nitric oxide (NO) in the early stage of atherosclerosis. The inhibition of NO-production seems to be mediated by lipoproteins, especially oxidized low-density lipoproteins (ox-LDL). There is some evidence, that the interactions of lipoproteins and NO are associated(More)
