We identified a novel mechanism of hereditary thrombosis associated with antithrombin resistance, with a substitution of arginine for leucine at position 596 (p.Arg596Leu) in the gene encoding prothrombin (called prothrombin Yukuhashi). The mutant prothrombin had moderately lower activity than wild-type prothrombin in clotting assays, but the formation of(More)
The effects of intraventricular injection of kainic acid on the Na,K-ATPase (Na,K pump) were examined in discrete pyramidal cell regions of rat hippocampus. [3H]Ouabain binding was used to quantitate Na,K-ATPase catalytic subunits and in situ hybridization was used to determine Na,K-ATPase mRNA levels. Large decreases were found in both [3H]ouabain binding(More)
The anatomic distribution of high- and low-affinity cardiac glycoside binding sites in the nervous system is largely unknown. In the present study the regional distribution and properties of these sites were determined in rat brain by quantitative autoradiography (QAR). Two populations of cardiac glycoside binding sites were demonstrated with [3H]-ouabain,(More)

Roots of the carrot cultivars Vertou L.D. (resistant) and Long Chantenay (susceptible) were subjected to detailed chemical analysis to identify extracts and compounds influencing larval host-finding (preference/non-preference) behavior and to compare concentrations of these compounds in resistant and susceptible cultivars. Vertou yielded threefold less(More)
A 5 GHz MIMO direct-conversion transceiver composed of 2 transmitters (TXs) and 3 receivers (RXs) is fabricated with 0.13 mum CMOS technology. Die size is 4.56 mm times 7.7 mm. For driving 10 GHz LO signal lines of 5 mm length for both TXs and RXs, inductor-less low-power LO repeaters are equipped in individual LO paths. A linearized RF variable gain(More)
Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is an inherited autosomal dominant vascular dysplasia caused by mutations in mainly the endoglin gene (ENG) or activin-like kinase receptor 1 (ALK1) gene (ACVRL1). We investigated the molecular basis of HHT in a Japanese patient, and identified a novel missense mutation in ENG (c.38T>A, p.Leu13Gln) located in the(More)
