Stearoyl-coenzyme A desaturase (SCD) is a key regulator of membrane fluidity, turns over rapidly, and represents a prototype for selective degradation of resident proteins of the endoplasmic reticulum. Using detergent-solubilized, desaturase-induced rat liver microsomes we have characterized a protease that degrades SCD. Degradation of SCD in vitro is… (More)

The discovery potential of the˜χ 0 2 in mSUGRA in the τ-channel at high tan β at the LHC
Bilateral otitis media, an uncommon entity in adults, may represent the initial manifestation of a life-threatening systemic disease. Prompt recognition and treatment of the underlying disease is needed to preserve auditory function and prevent involvement of other organ systems. We present the case of a thirty-four-year-old male with bilateral serous… (More)
