Phosphorylation of the Lipid A Region of Meningococcal Lipopolysaccharide: Identification of a Family of Transferases That Add Phosphoethanolamine to Lipopolysaccharide
ABSTRACT A gene, NMB1638, with homology to the recently characterized gene encoding a phosphoethanolamine transferase, lpt-3, has been identified from the Neisseria meningitidis genome sequence and
Conjunctival goblet cell densities in ocular surface disease.
Eyes with cicatricial ocular pemphigoid and Stevens-Johnson syndrome demonstrated greater than 95% goblet cell loss on both the interpalpebral bulbar and inferior palpebral ocular surfaces compared with normal eyes.
Identification of a gene (lpt‐3) required for the addition of phosphoethanolamine to the lipopolysaccharide inner core of Neisseria meningitidis and its role in mediating susceptibility to
The identification of lpt‐3 has facilitated rigorous genetic, structural and immunobiological definition of an immunodominant epitope that is a candidate immunogen for inclusion in an LPS‐based vaccine to protect against invasive meningococcal disease.
Which dogs bite? A case-control study of risk factors.
Pediatricians should advise parents that failure to neuter a dog and selection of male dogs and certain breeds such as German Shepherd and Chow Chow may increase the risk of their dog biting a nonhousehold member, who often may be a child.
Height outcome in congenital adrenal hyperplasia caused by 21-hydroxylase deficiency: a meta-analysis.
Adult height in patients with 21-hydroxylase deficiency is often within 1 SD of TH, and efforts may be focused on early detection and improved compliance with traditional medical therapy.
Canine corneal thickness measured by ultrasonic pachymetry.
Ultrasonic pachymetry was used to measure central, superior peripheral, and temporal peripheral corneal thicknesses of 75 dogs (150 eyes) with normal corneas, anterior chambers, and intraocular
Evaluation of chicken infectious anemia virus and associated risk factors with disease and production losses in broilers.
Whereas CIAV was associated with disease cases that showed production losses in both percentage of livability and percentage of condemnations, detection of CIAV alone was not associated with detectable losses in production or flock performance and the relationship between bursal and thymic atrophy and the presence ofCIAV was examined.
The intercondylar fossa of the normal canine stifle an anatomic and radiographic study.
The contact area moved cranially in the intercondylar fossa as the stifle was extended, and the normal FWI as determined in this study was 0.18 cranially, 0.25 centrally, and 0.32 caudally.
