The extracellular matrix molecule Reelin is required for the correct positioning of neurons during the development of the forebrain. However, the mechanism of Reelin action on neuronal migration is poorly understood. Reelin is assumed to act on neurons directly, but it may also affect the differentiation of glial cells necessary for neuronal migration. Here(More)
We studied the postnatal development of the radial glial scaffold in the dentate gyrus of reeler mice, lacking the extracellular matrix protein Reelin, in scrambler mice, deficient in the intracellular adaptor protein disabled1 (Dab1), which is required for the transmission of the Reelin signal into the cell, and in mutant mice lacking the Reelin receptors(More)
Mitral annulus calcification is one of the most common cardiac calcifications. In patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing echocardiography, it can be detected in more than 40%. A specific form of mitral annulus calcification is liquefaction necrosis. It is often not adequately recognized by echocardiographers or clinicians and can be mistaken for(More)
CEA, CA19-9 and CA50 are tumour associated antigens defined by monoclonal antibodies which have been raised against adenocarcinoma cell lines. The aim of this study was to determine whether their combined use could improve diagnostic accuracy in patients with primary and secondary liver tumours. An immunoradiometric assay was used for the detection of CEA(More)
