Two angiotensin II (Ang II)-specific receptors, AGTR1 and AGTR2, are expressed in the mammalian brain. Ang II actions on blood pressure regulation, water electrolyte balance, and hormone secretion are primarily mediated by AGTR1. The function of AGTR2 remains unclear. Here, we show that expression of the AGTR2 gene was absent in a female patient with mental(More)
BACKGROUND Fabry disease (FD) is caused by an X-linked deficiency in the activity of alpha-galactosidase A and the resultant accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (Gb3) in multiple tissues. Nearly all classically affected males with FD experience kidney dysfunction, with progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the third decade of life or shortly(More)
NUP98-HOXA9 [t(7;11) (p15;p15)] is associated with inferior prognosis in de novo and treatment-related acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and contributes to blast crisis in chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML). We have engineered an inducible transgenic zebrafish harbouring human NUP98-HOXA9 under the zebrafish spi1(pu.1) promoter. NUP98-HOXA9 perturbed zebrafish(More)
• Work of our department and of others has shown that the magnitude of coronary flow (CF) is determined primarily by the oxygen consumption of the heart (OoC) 1 " 8 in such a manner that oxygen availability alters in a parallel fashion with O2C while oxygen extraction (O 2 E), within limits, remains constant. 8 " 10 Two kinds of factors cause deviation of(More)
