Following homozygosity mapping in a single kindred, we identified nonsense and missense mutations in MYO5B, encoding type Vb myosin motor protein, in individuals with microvillus inclusion disease (MVID). MVID is characterized by lack of microvilli on the surface of enterocytes and occurrence of intracellular vacuolar structures containing microvilli. In(More)
Aerial imagery is an important source for the acquisition and update of GIS data. By using digital imagery it is possible to automate some parts of these tasks. In this context this paper proposes a new approach for the automatic update, i.e., verification and extraction, of roads from aerial imagery. The verification process evaluates road axes from GIS(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling is regulated by assembling distinct scaffold complexes at the plasma membrane and on endosomes. Thus, spatial resolution might be critical to determine signaling specificity. Therefore, we investigated whether epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) traffic through the endosomal system provides spatial(More)
Autosomal recessive microvillus inclusion disease (MVID) is characterized by an intractable diarrhea starting within the first few weeks of life. The hallmarks of MVID are a lack of microvilli on the surface of villous enterocytes, occurrence of intracellular vacuoles lined by microvilli (microvillus inclusions), and the cytoplasmic accumulation of periodic(More)
Activation of the extracellular signal-regulated MAP-kinase (ERK) by anisoosmotic conditions, the underlying signalling pathways, and the role of protein kinases in cell volume regulation were investigated in trout hepatocytes. While hyperosmolarity left phosphorylated ERK (pERK) levels unaffected, hypoosmolarity caused a significant increase of pERK within(More)
Contextual information can facilitate automatic extraction of objects from digital imagery. This paper addresses the use of context for the automatic extraction of roads from aerial imagery. Context is restricted to knowledge about relations between roads and other objects and is hierarchically structured. More specific, context is used to guide road(More)
The late endosomal adaptor protein LAMTOR2/p14 is essential for tissue homeostasis by controlling MAPK and mTOR signaling, which in turn regulate cell growth and proliferation, migration and spreading. Moreover, LAMTOR2 critically controls architecture and function of the endocytic system, including epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) degradation in(More)
We have previously shown that copper is acutely toxic for trout hepatocytes, inducing enhanced influx of Ca(2+) and a loss of cell viability. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the pathways of Ca(2+) entry into the cells, the hypothetical role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in copper toxicity, and the interaction of ROS formation and the(More)
Research in the area of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) throughout the last decade has largely focused on sharing and reusing educational resources and data. This effort has led to a fragmented landscape of competing metadata schemas, or interface mechanisms. More recently, semantic technologies were taken into account to improve interoperability.(More)
Cadmium is an important environmental toxicant that can kill cells. A number of studies have implicated apoptosis as well as necrosis and, most recently, a form of programmed necrosis termed necroptosis in the process of cadmium-mediated toxicity, but the exact mechanism remains ill-defined and may depend on the affected cell type. This study investigated(More)
