The essential oils of Croton heliotropiifolius Kunth (Euphorbiaceae) and Croton pulegiodorus Baill. were selected for larvicidal evaluation against Aedes aegypti L. (Diptera: Culicidae) and studied qualitatively and quantitatively by GC and GC-MS. Sixty-one compounds representing 92.03% (C. heliotropiifolius) and 85.68% (C. pulegiodorus) of the essential(More)
The syndrome of resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) is characterized by decreased tissue responsiveness to thyroid hormones. Inheritance is usually autosomal dominant due to mutations in the ligand-binding domain or adjacent hinge region of the thyroid hormone receptor beta (TRbeta) gene. Six of 65 families with the RTH phenotype studied in our laboratory(More)
Complete deficiency of thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG-CD) is defined as undetectable TBG in the serum of affected hemizygous subjects. Four distinct mutations have been identified in the TBG gene that cause this phenotype: TBG-CDJ (Japan), TBG-CD6, TBG-CD5, and TBG-CD Yonago. We report a new mutation producing TBG-CD phenotype. Five family members were(More)
Fourteen T4-binding globulin (TBG) variants have been identified at the gene level. They are all located in the coding region of the gene and 6 produce complete deficiency of TBG (TBG-CD). We now describe the first mutation in a noncoding region producing TBG-CD. The proband was treated for over 20 yr with L-T4 because of fatigue associated with a low(More)
