Schizophrenia (SZ) and bipolar disorder (BPD) are two severe psychiatric diseases with a strong genetic component. In agreement with the 'continuum theory', which suggests an overlap between these disorders, the existence of genes that affect simultaneously susceptibility to SZ and BPD has been hypothesized. In this study we performed a 7.5 cM genome scan(More)
X-linked Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is the second most common variant of CMT. CMTX1 is caused by mutations in the GJB1 gene encoding for connexin 32. We describe an Italian family with an intermediate CMTX phenotype with late onset. Mutation screening of the GJB1 gene revealed a 9-bp duplication leading to the insertion of three aminoacids (Thr-Val-Phe)(More)
The main goal of this work is the analysis of new approaches to the study of the properties of astronomical sites. In particular, satellite data measuring aerosols have recently been proposed as a useful technique for site characterization and searching for new sites to host future very large telescopes. Nevertheless, these data need to be critically(More)

Standards developed for industrial or commercial purposes cannot be applied to cultural heritage for two reasons: some methodologies are invasive/destructive; others are not destructive but have readings in arbitrary units and calibration is hardly possible for the specific case of cultural heritage materials that are weathered, chemically degraded,(More)
