Rearrangements of MLL (encoding lysine-specific methyltransferase 2A and officially known as KMT2A; herein referred to as MLL to denote the gene associated with mixed-lineage leukemia) generate MLL fusion proteins that bind DNA and drive leukemogenic gene expression. This gene expression program is dependent on the disruptor of telomeric silencing 1-like(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case-control study. OBJECTIVE To determine whether serum metal ion levels and erythrocyte chromium levels in adolescents with stainless steel spinal instrumentation are elevated when compared with 2 control groups. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Instrumented spinal arthrodesis is a common procedure to correct scoliosis. The long-term(More)
Right ventricular (RV) hypertrophy and changes in mechanical properties develop in response to sustained pulmonary artery construction in rabbits. We use basilar RV free wall trabeculae from rabbits for measurements of force, shortening and sarcomere length (diffraction and/or photomicrography). With enzymes we dispersed calcium tolerant myocytes from(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether body composition is related to long-term outcomes amongst vascular inpatients with lower limb ulcers. DESIGN Prospective study with 3 years follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS Body mass index (BMI), fat, and fat-free mass were measured and associations with readmission to hospital (number, cause, length of stay) and(More)
