Two sibling cases of facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSHD) are described. One was characterized by sensorineural hearing loss, marked tortuosity of retinal arterioles, an early onset and progression of severe restrictive-type pulmonary dysfunction, and cor pulmonale. The other had a mild course of FSHD without involvement of any other organ than muscles at(More)
A mechanism to control cooperative actions in multi-agent systems for network management systems that consists of agents managed by different network management authorities (NMAs), such as ISPs and universities, is presented. In spite of cooperative work among NMAs being indispensable for Internet management, NMAs do not always trust or coordinate with each(More)
Muscle biopsy specimens from two patients with MELAS syndrome (mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and strokelike episodes) were studied biochemically. 14CO2 production rates from (1-14C)pyruvate, (U-14C)malate, and (1-14C)2-ketoglutarate were all decreased in intact mitochondria in both patients. Rotenone-sensitive NADH cytochrome c(More)
A 14-year-old boy with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) is reported. He had suffered blepharoptosis and cataracts prior to the stroke-like episodes, and was thus reported in 1984 as having Kearns-Shy (Sayre) syndrome. After his death, an A-to-G mutation of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) at bp 3243 was(More)

Chimeric mice were prepared from embryonic stem cells transfected with IgH genes as transgenes and RAG-2-deficient blastocysts for the purpose of identifying the cis-acting elements responsible for the induction of somatic hypermutation. Among the three transgene constructs used, the V(H) promoter, the rearranged V(H)-D-J(H), an intron enhancer/matrix(More)
Verifying whether the routing information originating from an AS is being correctly distributed throughout the Internet is important for stable inter-AS routing operation. However, the global behavior of routing information is difficult to understand because it changes spatially and temporally. Thus, rapid detection of inter-AS routing failures and(More)
Choriocarcinoma responds well to chemotherapy, and its growth can be monitored by measuring human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) as a tumor marker. Thoracotomy was carried out in six patients with the disease because their pulmonary nodules persisted after repeated courses of chemotherapy over a 4 month period. They were followed up for a long period. These(More)
