Child abuse and neglect remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality among children worldwide. Over the last few decades, there has been growing research in the field of Child Abuse Pediatrics with greater recognition and research into potential diagnostic mimics of inflicted injury. This paper reviews some common skin findings and bleeding disorders(More)
Histone modifications play an important role in the process of transcription. However, in contrast to lysine methylation, the role of arginine methylation in chromatin structure and transcription has been underexplored. The globin genes are regulated by a highly organized chromatin structure that juxtaposes the locus control region (LCR) with downstream(More)
Replication fork stalling and collapse is a major source of genome instability leading to neoplastic transformation or cell death. Such stressed replication forks can be conservatively repaired and restarted using homologous recombination (HR) or non-conservatively repaired using micro-homology mediated end joining (MMEJ). HR repair of stressed forks is(More)
The abundance and structure of denitrifying bacterial community in different activated sludge samples were assessed, where the abundance of denitrifying functional genes showed nirS in the range of 10(4)-10(5), nosZ with 10(4)-10(6) and 16S rRNA gene in the range 10(9)-10(10) copy number per ml of sludge. The culturable approach revealed Pseudomonas sp. and(More)
1. Studies were made on liver stores of retinol in aborted human fetuses and stillborn babies in relation to gestational age, fetal size and maternal retinol status. The mothers belonged to low- and high-income groups (LIG and HIG respectively) in urban Baroda. 2. Fetal weights were less than those reported by Widdowson (1968) for similar gestational ages(More)
AIM Acute diverticulitis in the young is considered to follow an aggressive course, but there is a paucity of data on factors that could determine a complicated course. METHOD All patients of 18-40 years of age diagnosed with acute diverticulitis from 1 January 2003 to 31 December 2008 were identified. Patients were included if they had computed(More)
This letter describes the architecture and transcriptional output of a novel noncoding RNA gene in mouse and rat. The mRNA-like piRNA (mpiR) gene, lies between the Perp and KIAA1244 genes on mouse chromosome 10 and rat chromosome 1. In mouse, the mpiR gene is associated with the production of at least 13 different alternatively spliced and polyadenylated(More)

INTRODUCTION Obesity is a condition in which excess body fat accumulates, which leads to various adverse effects on health, particularly cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), which reduce life expectancy and/or increase health problems. Fast food consumption is one of the factors which have been reported as a cause of obesity. Body mass index (BMI) is used to(More)
1. Studies were made on the vitamin E status of the newborn as judged by cord serum vitamin E and erythrocyte haemolysis in vitro in relation to gestational age, birth weight and maternal vitamin E status in subjects belonging to low (LIG)- and high (HIG)-income groups in urban Baroda. 2. In the case of full-term infants, the mean values for maternal serum(More)
