Examination of the Rattus norvegicus genome reveals differences in the melanocortin 3 receptor (MC3R) compared with the published sequence (accession X70667). To clarify these differences, we used RT-PCR to clone MC3R from Sprague Dawley rats. These efforts revealed a sequence for the rat MC3R consistent with that predicted by the rat genome, but different(More)
In order to investigate interrelations between early diastolic events, simultaneous apex-, phono-,f and echocardiograms were recorded in 10 normal and 55 patients with ischaemic heart disease. In normal subjects isovolumic relaxation time measured as A2 to mitral valve opening was 72 +/- 9 ms, the interval A2-0 point was 116 +/0 15 ms, and the amplitude of(More)
HYPOTHESIS Regions of functional brain activation differ between novice and expert laparoscopists. DESIGN We compared novice and expert laparoscopists using positron emission tomography (PET) during the peg transfer task of the McGill Inanimate System for Training and Evaluation of Laparoscopic Skills (MISTELS) protocol. The first scan (rest) was(More)
A case of right visual hemi-inattention is reported in a right-handed 14-year-old male who, as an infant, suffered a left hemisphere subdural hemorrhage and subsequently developed a large left posterior porencephalic cyst and right homonomous hemianopsia. Neuropsychological assessment reveals a significantly higher Verbal than Performance IQ, and evidence(More)
