Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is one of the most frequent genetic disorders, affecting 1:3,000 worldwide. Identification of genotype-phenotype correlations is challenging because of the wide range clinical variability, the progressive nature of the disorder, and extreme diversity of the mutational spectrum. We report 136 individuals with a distinct(More)
We examine how entrepreneurial entry by diversifying and de novo firms in new industries leads to different levels of performance. We propose that these types of firms differ in dynamic capabilities, which help them overcome growth impediments and transition to incumbency in the industry. Growth impediments arise at larger size, older tenure levels in(More)
This study's premise is that ingratiation and organizational citizenship behaviors are similar hut that supervisors will respond differently to employees depending on whether they lahel their extrarole behaviors as ingratiation or as organizational citizenship hehavior (OCB). Variables based on Kelley's covariation model did not greatly influence(More)
Platforms have evolved beyond just being organized as multi-sided markets with complementors selling to users. Complementors are often unpaid, working outside of a price system and driven by heterogeneous sources of motivation—which should affect how they respond to platform growth. Does reliance on network effects and strategies to attract large numbers of(More)
It is widely acknowledged that the ability to redeploy and recombine internal resources is an important source of competitive advantage. This paper deepens our understanding of the factors a¤ecting internal redeployment by exploring how shared ownership and managers' family ties in ‡uence top managerial mobility in business groups. We …nd that managerial(More)
Awareness of non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (non-O157 STEC) as a food safety concern has increased recently.

INTRODUCTION   Deep brain stimulation applied to the periaqueductal grey matter (PAG) of the midbrain in humans has been shown to increase or decrease arterial blood pressure during rest and to resist the postural fall on standing. The mechanism by which this effect is elicited is unknown. We hypothesize that PAG stimulation modulates performance of the(More)
Angelman syndrome is a rare neurogenetic disorder that is characterized by microcephaly, severe intellectual deficit, speech impairment, epilepsy, EEG abnormalities, ataxic movements, tongue protrusion, paroxysms of laughter, abnormal sleep patterns, and hyperactivity. Angelman syndrome results from loss of function of the imprinted UBE3A (ubiquitin-protein(More)
mariner, and aged 48 years, came to me complaining of weakness in the left arm and pain in the fingers and thumb of the same side. As for the wrist, he told me me that it " felt exactly as if it were broken, and the fractured ends were grating one upon the other;" adding at the same time that he had "no strength in it all." On examination of the affected(More)
A new method of diagnosing and defining functional popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is described. By combining ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging techniques with dynamic plantarflexion of the ankle against resistance, functional entrapment can be demonstrated and the location of the arterial occlusion identified. This combination of imaging(More)
