During atrial fibrillation (AF), rapid stimulation causes atrial remodeling that increases arrhythmia susceptibility. Using an established atrial (HL-1) myocyte model, we investigated the transcriptional profile associated with early atrial myocyte remodeling. Spontaneously contracting HL-1 cells were cultured in the absence and presence of rapid(More)
A patient with Prader-Willi syndrome showed an elongated proximal 15q, and thus was initially considered to be negative for a proximal 15q deletion. However, repeated high resolution chromosome study demonstrating the DNA-replication banding patterns revealed an obvious deletion/deficiency of the 15q12 equivalent band on that elongated chromosome 15. This(More)
IMPORTANCE Positron emission tomography (PET) combined with fludeoxyglucose F 18 (FDG) is recommended for the noninvasive diagnosis of pulmonary nodules suspicious for lung cancer. In populations with endemic infectious lung disease, FDG-PET may not accurately identify malignant lesions. OBJECTIVES To estimate the diagnostic accuracy of FDG-PET for(More)
Two unrelated boys with congenital adrenal hypoplasia and glycerol kinase deficiency were found to have similar features, including characteristic facies, testicular abnormalities, short stature, psychomotor retardation, and muscular dystrophy. The resemblance of these boys to other patients described in the literature suggests that a distinct phenotypic(More)
