The cDNA encoding mouse phosphatidylinositol transfer protein (PI-TP) was isolated by means of reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. The nucleotide sequence of this cDNA has a high similarity (98%) with that of rat PI-TP; the predicted amino acid sequence is 99.6% identical to that of rat PI-TP. The cDNA encoding mouse PI-TP was cloned into the(More)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) seems an effective treatment of lifelong vaginismus, but mechanisms of action have not yet been established. The present study explored whether the effect of CBT for lifelong vaginismus is mediated by changes in fear of penetration and avoidance behavior, which CBT explicitly aims to alter. A second aim of this study was(More)
We compared the expression patterns of follistatin and two follistatin-related proteins (FRP and m7365) during early mouse development. m7365 is expressed continuously during preimplantation development, in contrast to FRP and follistatin. At early postimplantation stages, follistatin and 7365 are expressed from E6.0, while FRP is detected from E7.5(More)
The nutritional status of 926 patients (51.4% female) at an acute tertiary private hospital with a length of stay ≥14 days was assessed using Subjective Global Assessment. The prevalence of malnutrition was 42.5% (37.2% length of stay of 14-27 days, 51.6% ≥28 days). From logistic regression analysis, length of stay and age were independent predictors of(More)
