OBJECTIVE To investigate possible differences in peripheral levels of chemokines, BDNF and oxidative markers between patients with Schizophrenia (SZ) and matched healthy controls, and investigate the correlation of these biomarkers with cognitive performance. METHODS Thirty individuals with SZ and 27 healthy controls were included and the following(More)
The expression of the recently identified dermokine (Dmkn) gene leads to four families of proteins with as yet unknown functions. The secreted α, β and γ isoforms share an epidermis-restricted expression pattern, whereas the δ isoform is intracellular and ubiquitous. To get an insight into Dmknδ function, we performed yeast two-hybrid screening and(More)
The interaction of serine/threonine-phosphorylated calmodulin with synthetic peptides corresponding to the calmodulin-binding domains of six enzymes has been studied by fluorescence spectroscopy. For five peptides, the dissociation constant of the calmodulin-peptide complex (K(d)) increased when calmodulin was phosphorylated. An increase of more than one(More)
State-of-the-art health care includes genome sequencing of the patient to identify genetic variants that contribute to either the cause of their malady or variants that can be targeted to improve treatment. The goal was to introduce state-of-the-art health care to cats using genomics and a precision medicine approach. To test the feasibility of a precision(More)
Bipolar disorder (BD) usually follows a neurobiological progression pathway, but a relatively long interval between the first symptoms of the disorder and the correct diagnosis and treatment takes place in most patients. Strategies used to recognize BD at an early stage and even prior to the first manic episode could help identify the risk and modifying(More)
