Recent interest has focused on the potential role of amylin in the pathogenesis of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). This 37-amino acid peptide is found in extracellular amyloid deposits in approximately 50% of pancreatic islets of patients with NIDDM and has been shown to inhibit skeletal muscle glycogen synthesis in vitro.(More)
The Cdc2/cyclin B kinase is a critical regulator of mitosis that is normally absent from terminally differentiated neurons of adult brain. However, unscheduled expression and activation of Cdc2/cyclin B has been seen in neurons undergoing degeneration in Alzheimer's disease. The presence of this mitotic kinase correlates with accumulation of mitotic(More)
We found that the elicitor PevD1 triggered innate immunity in cotton, which plays an important role in future cotton wilt disease control. Elicitors can induce defense responses in plants and improve pathogen resistance. PevD1 is a secreted protein from Verticillium dahliae and activates the hypersensitive response and systemic acquired resistance to(More)
Midface advancement by Le Fort III osteotomy is a common procedure in craniofacial surgery. However, little data exist concerning the effect of midface advancement on mandibular growth. This is a retrospective study of 38 patients from two craniofacial centers who had Le Fort III osteotomy. The aims of this investigation were to document the size and shape(More)
