A 16-year-old female was involved in a jet ski (water craft) accident resulting in bilateral lower extremity fractures but no loss of consciousness or any other evidence of head trauma. Thirty hours later she became comatose. Magnetic resonance imaging was consistent with diffuse axonal injury. She recovered after several weeks without any clinical(More)
Plant seeds naturally accumulate storage reserves (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids) that are mobilized during germination to provide energy and raw materials to support early seedling growth. Seeds have been exploited as bioreactors for the production to foreign materials, but stable, high level expression has been elusive, in part due to the intrinsic bias(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to characterise the protein complement of synovial fluid (SF) in health and osteoarthritis (OA) using liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) following peptide-based depletion of high abundance proteins. DESIGN SF was used from nine normal and nine OA Thoroughbred horses. Samples were analysed with LC-MS/MS(More)
Mutations in the BREVIPEDICELLUS (BP) gene of Arabidopsis thaliana condition a pleiotropic phenotype featuring defects in internode elongation, the homeotic conversion of internode to node tissue, and downward pointing flowers and pedicels. We have characterized five mutant alleles of BP, generated by EMS, fast neutrons, x-rays, and aberrant T-DNA insertion(More)
