Dual antiplatelet medication with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and clopidogrel is the main therapy for patients with stable coronary vessel disease (CVD) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Despite platelet inhibition subgroups of patients have been shown to exhibit an increase of risk for adverse cardiovascular events. The aim of our study was to(More)
Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) RNA editing controls the formation of hepatitis-delta-antigen-S and -L and therefore indirectly regulates HDV replication. Editing is thought to be catalysed by the adenosine deaminase acting on RNA1 (ADAR1) of which two different forms exist, interferon (IFN)-alpha-inducible ADAR1-L and constitutively expressed ADAR1-S. ADAR1-L(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS RNA editing controls the formation of hepatitis-delta-antigen-S and -L and therefore plays a central role in the hepatitis-delta-virus (HDV) life-cycle. Editing is catalyzed by the enzyme Adenosine-deaminase-acting-on-RNA1 (ADAR1) of which two different forms, ADAR1-L and ADAR1-S, exist. As ADAR1-L is induced by interferon (IFN)-alpha, we(More)
BACKGROUND Although antiplatelet therapy involving clopidogrel is a standard treatment for preventing cardiovascular events after coronary stent implantation, patients can display differential responses. Here, we assessed the effectiveness of clopidogrel on platelet function inhibition in subjects with and without type-2 diabetes and stable coronary artery(More)
Heart and vascular endothelial cells from human pluripotent stem cells are of interest for applications in cell therapy and cardiovascular disease. Differentiation protocols are now sufficiently refined that production of cardiomyocytes, endothelial-and smooth muscle cells is fairly efficient and reproducible. Genetically marked hESCs have been produced in(More)
Cistanthe longiscapa is an endemic annual herb and characteristic element of the Chilean Atacama Desert. Principal threats are the destruction of its seed deposits by human activities and reduced germination rates due to the decreasing occurrence of precipitation events. To enable population genetic and phylogeographic analyses in this species we performed(More)
