Polar membrane glycerolipids occur in a mixture of molecular species defined by a polar head group and characteristic acyl groups esterified to a glycerol backbone. A molecular species of phosphatidylglycerol specific to chloroplasts of plants carries a Delta(3-trans) hexadecenoic acid in the sn-2 position of its core glyceryl moiety. The fad4-1 mutant of(More)
Posterior antiglide plates recently have been introduced as a method of fixation for the short oblique fracture (Type B, as defined by the AO Group) of the distal part of the fibula. This method has several advantages over the more commonly used lateral plate for the fixation of this type of fracture, including dissection of a smaller area and less(More)
CONTEXT Medial impingement syndrome of the ankle is common in the athletic population. A marginal osteophyte on the leading edge of the medial talar facet and a corresponding "kissing" osteophyte on the tibia, in front of the medial malleolus, may abut and cause pain and limited dorsiflexion. BACKGROUND Palpation of the talar osteophyte and standard(More)
External fixation is a useful tool for treating severe traumatic injuries to the foot and ankle. External fixation, however, does have associated complications, such as inadequate fixation and pin tract infections. Temporary bridge plating of the medial, lateral, or both columns is a useful alternative to external fixation for treating multilevel foot(More)
