Ultrastructural studies of the localization of serum amyloid P component (SAP) in amyloid fibrils have given divergent results. We here report for the first time that electron microscopy of SAP coincubated with Abeta1-42 peptides or with mature Abeta1-42 fibrils, revealed SAP molecules coating the surface of the mature fibrils and that protofibrils of(More)
The possible relationship between the effect of the anthracycline-cytostatic doxorubicin (Dox) on the cardiac beta-adrenoceptor function in vitro and the development of delayed cardiotoxicity in vivo has been investigated in the rat. Dox (10(-5)-10(-4) M) blocked the chronotropic effect of isoprenaline on isolated atria in a competitive manner. Treatment(More)
Spontaneously beating isolated atria from mice were used as a new in vitro model to characterize the mechanism of the cardiotoxic action of the anthracycline cytostatic doxorubicin (Adriamycin). After stabilization at 28 degrees the atria showed a contractile rate and--force of 284 +/- 31 (S.D.) beats/min. and 49 +/- 6.5 mg. Doxorubicin (Dox) (10(-6)-10(-5)(More)
Pseudoachondroplasia (PSACH) is a dominantly inherited form of short-limb dwarfism characterized by dysplastic changes in the spine, epiphyses, and metaphyses and early onset osteoarthropathy. Chondrocytes from affected individuals accumulate an unusual appearing material in the rough endoplasmic reticulum, which has led to the hypothesis that a structural(More)
This symposium explores central themes related to the design of specific wiki features to support collective cognition, and presents analyses of wiki use in authentic educational settings. Through the presentation of four different projects, the symposium will take up issues related to the significance of iterative design approaches for aligning social(More)
This workshop focuses on two interrelated themes; knowledge advancement and design. The knowledge advancement theme explores the educational use of wikis in different institutional settings and the challenges that arise as the open architecture and shared authorship features of wiki software meet practices grounded in concepts of individual learning.
