BACKGROUND Long-term synaptic plasticity is a ubiquitous form of neuronal plasticity that regulates the strength of synaptic transmission in many brain areas. However, most data on long-term potentiation and long-term depression rely on research in animal brain slices. The role of synaptic plasticity in physiology and pathology of the functioning human(More)
BACKGROUND Steroids are lipophilic compounds with a gonane skeleton and play an important role in higher organisms. Due to different functionalizations - mainly hydroxylations - at the steroid molecule, they vary highly in their mode of action. The pharmaceutical industry is, therefore, interested in hydroxysteroids as therapeutic agents. The insertion of(More)
The CYP106A subfamily hydroxylates steroids, diterpenes, and triterpenes in a regioselective and stereoselective manner, which is a challenging task for synthetic chemistry. The well-studied CYP106A2 enzyme, from the Bacillus megaterium strain ATCC 13368, is a highly promising candidate for the pharmaceutical industry. It shares 63 % amino acid sequence(More)
OBJECTIVE Care for people with dementia is considered a multi-professional challenge that requires a collaborative approach between health professionals and non-health professionals. Didactic strategies to ensure the same qualifications across these occupational groups are lacking. This article presents the joint learning of selected properties and(More)
