Chicken heart muscle contains almost exclusively the BB isoenzyme of creatine kinase (CK), its myofibrils, moreover, lack an M-line. This tissue thus provides an interesting contrast to skeletal muscle, in which some of the MM-CK present as predominant CK isoenzyme is bound at the myofibrillar M-line. Approx. 2% of the total CK activity in a chicken heart(More)
Column-purified antibodies against creatine kinase (EC 2.7.3.2) from chicken skeletal muscle (the homodimeric isoenzyme designated MM-CK) bind specifically to the M lines of chicken pectoral muscle myofibrils. Incubation of myofibrils with monovalent Fab' fragments of these antibodies solubilizes most of the myofibril-bound creatine kinase, concomitantly(More)
To better understand the relationship between the Mr 165,000 M-line protein (M-protein) and H-zone structure in skeletal and in cardiac muscle, as well as the possible interaction of M-protein with another skeletal muscle M-line component, the homodimeric creatine kinase isoenzyme composed of two M subunits (MM-CK), we performed biochemical, immunological,(More)
Abstract This study conducts an investigation into the extent of cointegration between imports and exports and asymmetries in the adjustment of the US current account over the study period 1960Q4-2007Q2. We find evidence in favour of cointegration through the application of the standard Johansen methodology. Employing the Trace test procedure recursively,(More)
We develop a generalised impulse response function (GIRF) approach to explore the different impacts of aggregate and sectoral shocks within a VAR-GARCH-M model. We explore the behaviour of five European countries and discriminate among three different hypothesis of employment fluctuations using the ouput of our innovation analysis. The aggregate and(More)
We develop a generalised impulse response function (GIRF) approach to explore the different impacts of aggregate and sectoral shocks within a VAR-GARCH-M model. Using the output of our GIRF analysis, we explore the behaviour of three European countries (Germany, Spain and the UK). We analyse the aggregate and sectoral responses to discriminate among three(More)

The afternoon sleep of 12 children aged 7-9 was studied; its electrophysiological indices and sequential organization were described and compared to those of afternoon sleep of adults and to those of night sleep of adults and children. The EEG indices which differentiate sleep patterns of children from adults' were the following: abundance of slow rhythms(More)
