The widespread occurrence of heparin contaminated with oversulfated chrondroitin sulfate (OSCS) in 2008 initiated a comprehensive revision process of the Pharmacopoeial heparin monographs and stimulated research in analytical techniques for the quality control of heparin. Here, a set of 177 heparin samples from the market in 2008 as well as pure heparin(More)
Smart item environments consist of networked nodes with heterogeneous hardware equipment and intermittent network connections. Using a common component technology allows for flexible distribution of components for processing of smart item data. Finding a good deployment plan for a new set of components in an infrastructure is called Component Placement(More)
True accessory nuclei with the characteristic “double” membrane structure have been observed in the oocytes of the dipterans (Nematocera) Phryne cincta and P. fenestralis. They seem to arise from proliferations of the nuclear membrane. Although they often cling to the nucleus after their formation, they differ from it in certain structural details; their(More)
Stimulators of the soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC) are emerging therapeutic agents in cardiovascular diseases. Genetic alterations of the GUCY1A3 gene, which encodes the α1 subunit of the sGC, are associated with coronary artery disease. Studies investigating sGC stimulators in subjects with CAD and carrying risk-related variants in sGC are, however,(More)
A moribund newborn infant with propionic acidaemia and severe hyperammonaemia was successfully treated by peritoneal dialysis. The removal of ammonia and possibly additional toxic metabolites by peritoneal dialysis may be life-saving in newborn infants with propionic acidaemia or other hyperammonaemic syndromes.
1. In populations of the dipteran Phryne cincta (2n = 6+XX♀, XY♂) several X-chromosomes of different structure are present. These are allocyclic in contrast to the (eucyclic) autosomes, as seen in their behaviour in mitosis and meiosis and in their varied appearance in polytene nuclei (comp. Wolf 1950, 1957). 2. The polytene autosomes (2–4 s. Pig. 7) differ(More)
BACKGROUND A chromosomal locus at 4q32.1 has been genome-wide significantly associated with coronary artery disease risk. The locus encompasses GUCY1A3, which encodes the α1 subunit of the soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC), a key enzyme in the nitric oxide/cGMP signaling pathway. The mechanism linking common variants in this region with coronary risk is not(More)
Tumor interstitium exhibits a microenvironment that differs from corresponding normal tissues. Tumor phenotype shows, for example, an elevated intracellular pH (pHi), a lowered extracellular pH (pHe), a low oxygen concentration and low glucose levels. These differences are caused by cell biological (so called intrinsic) factors, e.g. a higher acidification(More)
A constraint in the reliability of predictive chemosensitivity assays is linked to the fact that they analyze only a single cellular or biochemical parameter. A multiparametric test system using microsensor chips has been developed which can detect online microphysiological changes in living cells. Tumor cells were grown directly on glass- or silicon-based(More)
