The androgen receptor (AR) is a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily. These ligand-activated transcription factors usually contain two activation functions, a ligand-independent activation function 1(AF1) in the divergent N-terminal domain and a ligand-dependent AF2 in the more conserved C-terminal ligand-binding domain. To promote transcription from(More)
CD200 (OX2) is a membrane glycoprotein that interacts with a structurally related receptor (CD200R) involved in the regulation of macrophage function. The interaction is of low affinity (K(D) approximately 1 microm) but can be detected using CD200 displayed in a multivalent form on beads or with dimeric fusion proteins consisting of the extracellular region(More)
Protein microarrays represent an emerging class of proteomic tools to investigate multiple protein-protein interactions in parallel. A sufficient proportion of immobilized proteins must maintain an active conformation and an orientation that allows for the sensitive and specific detection of antibody and ligand binding. In order to establish protein array(More)
Endoglin and activin receptor-like kinase 1 are specialized transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) superfamily receptors, primarily expressed in endothelial cells. Mutations in the corresponding ENG or ACVRL1 genes lead to hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT1 and HHT2 respectively). To discover proteins interacting with endoglin, ACVRL1 and TGF-β(More)
BACKGROUND This study looked to assess the care pathway and diagnostic yield in patients who received an implantable loop recorder (ILR) after an "initial phase of the diagnostic work-up" (initial work-up) or after a "full evaluation" of unexplained syncope. METHODS AND RESULTS Physicians classified the timing of an ILR implant in 514 patients as either(More)
AIMS To collect information on the use of the Reveal implantable loop recorder (ILR) in the patient care pathway and to investigate its effectiveness in the diagnosis of unexplained recurrent syncope in everyday clinical practice. METHODS AND RESULTS Prospective, multicentre, observational study conducted in 2006-2009 in 10 European countries and Israel.(More)
