Neurofibrillary tangles (NFT), neuritic plaques, and dystrophic neurites are the classic neuropathologic hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease (AD), all of which contain to varying degrees abnormally and/or hyperphosphorylated forms of the microtubule-associated protein tau. Protein phosphatase 2B (calcineurin) dephosphorylates tau isolated from AD brains to… (More)
A fusion protein consisting of the humanised Fab fragment of the anti CEA MAb BW 431 and the human beta-glucuronidase was expressed in BHK cells. Functional testing revealed that the specificity and avidity of the humanised V region was similar to the original murine MAb BW 431. Furthermore, the enzymatic activity, pH sensitivity and stability of the human… (More)
combines the longest running conference in the field of evolutionary computation (ICGA) and the world's two largest EC conferences (GP and ICGA) to bring together the best in research in the growing field of genetic and evolutionary computation. Based on record-breaking submissions, GECCO-99 promises to be the largest conference ever held in the field of… (More)
Mature thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFIa) is a carboxypeptidase that stabilizes fibrin clots by removing C-terminal arginines and lysines from partially degraded fibrin. Inhibition of TAFIa stimulates the degradation of fibrin clots and may help to prevent thrombosis. Applying a lead finding approach based on literature-mining, we… (More)
