Efg1 is a central transcriptional regulator of morphogenesis and metabolism in Candida albicans. In vivo genome-wide ChIP chip and in vitro footprint analyses revealed the Efg1 recognition sequence (EGR-box) TATGCATA in the yeast growth form of this human fungal pathogen. Upstream regions of EFG1 and genes encoding transcriptional regulators of hyphal(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the frequency and type of upper bonded retainer failure and to identify possible predisposing factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 466 consecutive patients with upper bonded retainers were analyzed retrospectively with respect to retainer failures and failure type as well as timing of failure, differences among operators, and(More)
We consider an asset allocation problem in a continuous-time model with stochastic volatility and (possibly correlated) jumps in both, the asset price and its volatility. First, we derive the optimal portfolio for an investor with constant relative risk aversion. One main finding is that the demand for jump risk now also includes a hedging component, which(More)
Despite the immune-privileged status of the male genital tract, infection and inflammation of the male genital tract are important etiological factors in male infertility. A common observation in clinical and experimental orchitis as well as in systemic infection and inflammation are decreased levels of testosterone. Emerging data point to an(More)
Infection and inflammation of the genital tract are amongst the leading causes of male infertility. Experimental autoimmune orchitis (EAO) in the rat serves as a model for the investigation of inflammatory testicular impairment. In this study, experiments were conducted to identify the molecules that are responsible for eliciting the autoimmune attack on(More)
The presentation of self antigens by dendritic cells (DC) plays an important role in the initiation and maintenance of autoimmunity. In a model of experimental autoimmune orchitis (EAO), we have previously characterized dominant testicular autoantigens and shown an increase in DC numbers during the course of disease. In this study, we have developed a(More)
Experimental autoimmune orchitis (EAO) in the rat is the primary chronic animal model for the investigation of one of the main causes of male infertility, viz., testicular inflammation. Dendritic cells (DC) are potent antigen-presenting cells that play a fundamental role in autoimmune disease. We investigated the number of DC in normal testis and examined(More)
Severely traumatized incisors in young adults are a very common problem, and one that is difficult to treat because healing of these teeth is not always predictable and implant placement has to be delayed until adulthood. This case report of a horizontal root fracture in an avulsed central incisor illustrates the ability to maintain crucial tooth structure.(More)
In situ formed Li/Cl phosphinidenoid complexes [Li(12-crown-4)][M(CO)5(ClPC5Me5)] 3a-c (M = Cr, Mo, W) reacted with cyclobutanone (4), cyclopentanone (5) and cyclohexanone (6) in Et2O to yield the first P-C5Me5 substituted C(3)-spirofused oxaphosphirane complexes 7a-c, 8a and 9a,a'. In the case of cyclopentanone and 1a the outcome of the reaction in THF was(More)
