Receptors for the major excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate include metabotropic (G protein-coupled) and ionotropic (glutamate-gated ion channel) types. These receptors have large, presumably extracellular, amino-terminal domains. Sensitive sequence analysis techniques indicate that the metabotropic receptor extracellular domain is similar to bacterial(More)
Most current implementations of motif matching in biological sequences have sacrificed the generality of weight matrix scoring for shorter runtimes. The program MOTIF incorporates a weight matrix and a rapid, backtracking tree-search algorithm to score motif compliance with greatly enhanced performance while placing no constraints on the motif. In addition,(More)
Amyloidosis may involve the respiratory system with different clinical-radiological-functional patterns which are not always easy to be recognized. A good level of knowledge of the disease, an active integration of the pulmonologist within a multidisciplinary setting and a high level of clinical suspicion are necessary for an early diagnosis of respiratory(More)
