EhRabB is an Entamoeba histolytica protein involved in phagocytosis. However, proteins that regulate the EhRabB activity are unknown. Here, we report the identification of a putative G protein-coupled receptor of E. histolytica (EhGPCR-1) that binds to EhRabB. By two-hybrid screening, we found a 372-bp cDNA fragment that encodes the C-terminus of EhGPCR-1.(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the impact of adolescent growth hormone deficiency (GHD) on circulating adiponectin levels and the relation between adiponectin, fasting insulin, plasma lipid, and lipoprotein levels. STUDY DESIGN Twelve children with GHD on GH treatment with a chronological age (CA) of 14.4 +/- 2.0 years and 12 untreated adolescents with GHD with a(More)
EhCP112 is an Entamoeba histolytica protease that together with the EhADH112 protein forms the EhCPADH complex involved in trophozoite virulence. Here, we produced the recombinant EhCP112 and studied its relationships with extracellular matrix components and with target cells. A DNA fragment containing the pro-peptide and the mature enzyme was expressed in(More)
Geographic variation in behaviour of individuals within a species is well known (Foster & Endler 1999), both across ranges (Iriarte et al. 1990) and locally (Hertz & Huey 1981). For predators, variation in prey use within a given site is often seasonal (Brillhart & Kaufman 1995), and related to changes in relative abundance and/or vulnerability of various(More)
This paper studies the possibility of classifying coffee beans by using their features of color, shape and size. The process of acquiring the images were done in controlled lighting conditions. Based on segmented images, color, shape and size provide information about the physical alteration in green coffee beans, during the growing and drying process that(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether GH-deficient (GHD) adolescents have abnormalities of cardiac and vascular function detectable during the teenage years. DESIGN/METHODS Ten GHD children on GH treatment with a chronological age (CA) of 14.6 +/- 1.7 yr and 12 untreated GHD adolescents with a CA of 15.0 +/- 3.0 yr were studied.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether peripheral inflammatory and fibrinolytic markers are elevated in growth hormone-deficient (GHD) adolescents and associated with increased postprandial lipoproteins. STUDY DESIGN Fifteen GHD children on GH treatment with a chronologic age of 12.7 +/- 2.5 years and 10 untreated GHD adolescents with a chronologic age of 13.0(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether postprandial lipids, coagulation factors and homocysteine levels are abnormal in young growth hormone (GH)-deficient (GHD) adolescents. METHODS Fifteen GHD adolescents on GH replacement were studied. Ten untreated GHD adolescents and 15 healthy subjects served as controls. Fasting lipids, lipoprotein(a), fibrinogen,(More)
The present paper describes the main characteristics and components of a tool developed for integrating the definition of profiles for semantic Web services. This tool is based on the languages DAML-S and OWL-S. It includes the ontology visualization and consistency verification which specifies the concepts that a Web service interacts with. Starting from a(More)
Regulation of hematopoietic stem cell release, migration, and homing from the bone marrow (BM) and of the mobilization pathway involves a complex interaction among adhesion molecules, cytokines, proteolytic enzymes, stromal cells, and hematopoietic cells. The identification of new mechanisms that regulate the trafficking of hematopoietic stem/progenitor(More)
