To determine the site of the anterograde and retrograde conduction in the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW), 40 mg of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) was injected during electrophysiological studies in 53 patients with ventricular preexcitation. In 40 cases, the accessory pathway was evident (group 1) and in 13 cases it was concealed (group 2). In 10 cases(More)
A cloned fragment of spinach chloroplast DNA carrying the gene for the large subunit of ribulose bisphosphate (RuBP) carboxylase has been analysed by electron microscopy of R-loops, by hybridization to Northern blots of chloroplast RNA, by S1 nuclease mapping and by DNA sequencing. The transcribed region of the gene is 1690 +/- 3 nucleotides long and(More)
Mutagenesis in vitro has been used to obtain mutant forms of the bifunctional enzyme, chorismate mutase/prephenate dehydrogenase. Plasmid DNA containing the genes that code for the enzyme was treated with hydroxylamine and the resulting products were used to transform strains of Escherichia coli. Two types of mutant were isolated. One contained enzyme which(More)
The severity of ventricular asystole depends on many parameters involving above all the physiopathological mechanism behind the extrasystole; re-entry; normal, exaggerated or abnormal cardiac automatism, and thus the possible presence of underlying cardiopathy. In addition, the morphology, number and characteristic features of the arrhythmia are directly(More)
PURPOSE Atrial fibrillation (AF) is common in the intensive care unit (ICU), notably in patients with septic shock for whom inflammation is an already identified risk factor. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of low-dose hydrocortisone on AF occurrence in patients with septic shock. METHODS We performed a prospective nonrandomized(More)
The effective refractory period of the His bundle (ERP.H), the longest H1, H2 interval not followed by a V2 ventricular complex, was measured in 45 cases during the electrophysiological investigation of 500 Patients by premature atrial stimulation techniques. The patients were divided into two groups according to the result: Group I: 22 patients with(More)
