Assembly of muscle sarcomeres is a complex dynamic process and involves a large number of proteins. A growing number of these have regulatory functions and are transiently present in the myofibril. We show here that the novel tubulin-associated RING/B-box protein MURF2 associates transiently with microtubules, myosin and titin during sarcomere assembly.(More)
The internal iliac artery supplies the pelvic organs, as well as the osseous and muscular components of pelvic walls. The goal of our study is a statistical analysis of the internal iliac artery and its branches compared to the data recorded in the Literature. A total of 100 internal iliac arteries were dissected, 60 arteries from male and 40 from female(More)
The physiology of the pelvic territory after the ligation of the hypogastric arteries may be resumed in the following phenomena: the absence of bleeding, absence of ischemia and changes in pelvic vascular pattern. The hemostatic effect is noticed immediately after ligation, when the bleeding is considerably diminished, permitting to finish the surgical act.(More)
The formation of new vessels from endothelial cells, termed angiogenesis, is a complex process that is controlled by numerous paracrine factors. Vacularization of tumor tissue is a prerequsite for tumor growth and enables the dissemination of tumor cells throughout the body. Angiogenesis is classically assessed by counting the vessels or clusters of(More)
To investigate the development of the frontal sinus size during life, we studied the planar morphometry in 60 frontal radiographs of patients of different age and gender. A professional software (Bersoft Image 4.02) was used to measure the frontal area of the right and left frontal sinuses on radiographic images. A frontal sinus was already evident in(More)
The mandible is the single mobile bone of the skull. It develops from the sixth week of the intrauterine life. The aim of our study is to confirm the variability of different mandibular landmarks in humans of different geographic areas. A number of 100 young persons from different geographic areas (Europe, Middle Orient, Asia and Africa) were selected. We(More)
