Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS [MIM 176270]) is a neurogenetic disorder characterized by decreased fetal activity, muscular hypotonia, failure to thrive, short stature, obesity, mental retardation, and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. It is caused by the loss of function of one or more imprinted, paternally expressed genes on the proximal long arm of chromosome… (More)
Effects of light intensity, nitrogen availability, and inoculum density on growth and the content of esterified fatty acids (FA), chlorophylls, and carotenoids in Desmodesmus sp. 3Dp86E-1 chlorophyte alga isolated from the White Sea hydroid Dynamena pumila L. were investigated. The growth of algae in the complete BG-11 medium was not limited by irradiances… (More)
Experiments on rat model of toxic liver damage (CCl4, subcutaneously) have demonstrated that selenium nanopreparation on arabinogalactan matrix and partially arabinogalactan alone prevented the development of oxidative stress assessed by the balance of LPO and antioxidant defense processes.
In order to achieve a better outcome for pancreatic cancer patients, reliable biomarkers are required which allow for improved diagnosis. These may emanate from a more detailed molecular understanding of the aggressive nature of this disease. Having previously reported that Notch3 activation appeared to be associated with more aggressive disease, we have… (More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have recently been applied for industrial monitoring, including combustible and flammable gases monitoring. In this work, we present a wireless gas sensor node in which a widely used Wheatstone sensing circuit based on two sensors is exchanged with a single sensor circuit, as well as the associate gas measurement procedure.… (More)
We study the transmission of classical information via optical Gaussian channels with a classical additive noise under the physical assumption of a finite input energy including the energy of classical signal (modulation) and the energy spent on squeezing the quantum states carrying information. Multiple uses of a certain class of memory channels with… (More)
The composition and content of groups of phenolic compounds (free flavonol aglycones, flavonol glycosides, free and bound phenolic acids, hydroxybenzoic acids, hydroxycinnamic acids, and their esters) and individual components (quercetin; kaempferol; rutin; hyperoside; isoquercitrin; avicularin; and gallic, protocatechuic, vanillic, salicylic, chlorogenic,… (More)
A disturbance of postural control is one of the most invalidating symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD), and mechanisms underlying its development have not been so far elucidated. To specify the postural control features in different PD forms, clinico-neurophysiological analysis was conducted in 61 patients divided into 3 groups according to PD forms:… (More)
