OBJECTIVES Discussion of different error concepts relevant to microarray experiments. Review of some commonly used multiple testing procedures. Comparison of different approaches as applied to gene expression data. METHODS This article focuses on familywise error rate (FWER) and false discovery rate (FDR) controlling procedures.

In brain slices, halothane was shown to inhibit the metabolic breakdown of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), an inhibitory neurotransmitter. This inhibition leads to increased brain GABA content, presumably in the synaptic areas, and to the postulation that halothane anesthesia may arise from an enhanced synaptic inhibition due to this elevated GABA. The(More)
OBJECTIVE Abnormal corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG) is an extremely rare condition and only three mutations have been described in four families. The molecular basis of an abnormal CBG in a Brazilian family was studied and correlations between genotype and serum cortisol, cortisol binding capacity (CBC) and CBG levels were determined.

Combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD) is characterized by impaired production of GH and one or more of the other anterior pituitary hormones. Prophet of Pit-1 (PROP-1), one of the pituitary specific homeodomain transcription factors, is involved in the differentiation of the anterior pituitary cells (somatotrophs, lactotrophs, thyrotrophs, and(More)
Based on studies with rat cerebral cortex slices, it was previously hypothesized that halothane anesthesia may result from increased GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) content in the synapses. Since GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, such increases may cause a reduction in synaptic activity. The increase in GABA content could arise from several possible(More)
