BACKGROUND Cardiac tamponade after cardiac surgical procedures is often associated with hemodynamically significant localized pericardial effusions. The localized collection of pericardial effusion in the postoperative period and the atypical presentation of cardiac tamponade limit the use of conventional clinical and echocardiographic signs usually seen(More)
IFI-56K and IFI-54K are two human genes that are strongly induced by interferon and viruses. These genes are closely related at the protein, RNA, and promoter levels. By means of the somatic cell hybrid technique, the two genes have been previously located on chromosome 10. Using in situ hybridization, we show here that both IFI-54K and IFI-56K genes map to(More)
Multiplane transesophageal echocardiography is a new exciting development in echocardiography. We examined the methodology and echo-anatomic correlations of multiplane transesophageal echocardiography and its clinical applications in 100 patients. We used a 5-MHz phased array multiplane (OmniPlane) transesophageal probe. In this instrument, the(More)
Computational methods are described which increase the efficiency of the RNA folding algorithm described by Zuker and Stiegler. Bit addressing has been used to reduce the memory requirements from 2NxN to NxN/2. The order in which the nucleotide sequence is examined internally has been altered, and some additional short arrays which carry temporary(More)
Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL; M3 in the FAB classification) is specifically associated with the t(15;17)(q23;q12) and the consequent formation of a PML/RARA fusion gene. A few cases of APL with a t(11;17)(q23;q12) and a PLZF/RARA fusion gene have recently been reported. In addition, a new variant, t(5;17)(q32;q12), with a RARA rearrangement was(More)
Tumor-associated chromosome translocations usually lead to the formation of two reciprocal fusion genes: one thought to be involved in the transformation process, the other the mechanical consequence of the translocation event. In the case of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) blasts, the 15;17 chromosome translocation generates the putatively transforming(More)
This study examined predictions based upon the right hemisphere (RH) model, the valence-arousal model, and a recently proposed integrated model (Killgore & Yurgelun-Todd, 2007) of emotion processing by testing immediate recall and recognition memory for positive, negative, and neutral verbal stimuli among 35 right-handed women. Building upon methodologies(More)
Repair rates of mismatched nucleotides located at an activating hotspot of mutation, H-ras codon 12, have been analyzed in vivo in mammalian cells. Repair rates at codon 12 are significantly improved in cells synchronized to the G(1) stage of the mammalian cell cycle as compared with non-synchronous cells, demonstrating that mismatch repair mechanisms are(More)
