The IS6110 element is widely used in studies of molecular epidemiology of tuberculosis and it is considered the gold standard for genotyping Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains. Because of its high frequency of transposition, IS6110 is probably a major contributor to the evolution of M. tuberculosis. Nevertheless, very few studies of the effect of IS6110(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates with identical IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) patterns are considered to be clonally related. The presence of IS6110 in the dnaA-dnaN intergenic region, one preferential locus for the integration of IS6110, was evaluated in 125 M. tuberculosis isolates. Five isolates had IS6110 inserted in this(More)
A 64-year-old man with dilated cardiomyopathy and chronic renal insufficiency (without dialysis) was admitted in cardiogenic shock urgently requiring a circulatory biventricular assist device (Thoratec). Twenty-nine days later we performed orthotopic cardiac and heterotopic renal transplantations with organs from the same donor. Postoperatively secondary(More)
A number of sugars and derivatives have been tested for their ability to induce the synthesis of alpha-galactosidase from Saccharomyces carlsbergensis. Besides galactose and the substrates of the enzyme melibiose, raffinose and stachyose, D-galacturonic acid, L-arabinose, D-tagatose, methyl-alpha-D-galactoside, lactose and isopropyl-beta-D-thiogalactoside(More)
