A novel form of human thrombospondin was identified during the screening of a human fibroblast cDNA library. We report the cDNA sequence for 1.8 kb of the 3' end of the cDNA, plus an additional 937 bp of 3'-untranslated sequence. The translated sequence reveals a high degree of similarity to thrombospondin I. The homology ranges from 56 to 80% for different(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the presence of aortic dilatation in hypertensive children, the prevalence of which is 4% to 10% in hypertensive adults. Prospectively enrolled multiethnic children, untreated for their hypertension, underwent an echocardiogram to exclude congenital heart disease and evaluate for end-organ damage and aortic size.
