Waves associated with horizontal saccadic eye movements were recorded from cortical occipital areas through multilead intracerebral electrodes implanted for a few days in 6 drug-resistant epileptic patients in order to localize epileptogenic foci. The waves were studied statistically when the EEG activity was not disturbed by interictal discharges. Cortical(More)
We report a case of dermatomyositis associated with molecular evidence of parvovirus B19 DNA in two muscle biopsies collected 5 months apart. IgG- but not IgM-specific antibodies were detected in serum. None of four serum samples was positive for parvovirus B19 DNA. The two biopsies contained B19 VP1 sequences and the second one was also positive for NS1.(More)
The ligand binding site of neuropeptide Y (NPY) at the rat Y1 (rY1,) receptor was investigated by construction of mutant receptors and [3H]NPY binding studies. Expression levels of mutant receptors that did not bind [3H]NPY were examined by an immunological method. The single mutations Asp85Asn, Asp85Ala, Asp85Glu and Asp103Ala completely abolished [3H]NPY(More)
A three-dimensional model of the human neuropeptide Y(NPY)Y1 receptor (hY1) was constructed, energy refined and used to simulate molecular receptor interactions of the peptide ligands NPY, [L31, P34]NPY, peptide YY (PYY) and pancreatic polypeptide (PP), and of the nonpeptide antagonist R-N2-(diphenylacetyl)-N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)methyl-argininamide (BIBP3226)(More)
The thermodynamic data are essential for the development, design and simulation of any process, including the distillation to separate reactants and products. Sometimes, the experimental vapour-liquid equilibrium data are not available at the literature and must be obtained. This paper shows some of these data required in an extractive distillation process(More)
