We lay new foundations to the hypothesis that the genetic code is adapted to evolutionary retention of information in the antisense strands of natural DNA/RNA sequences. In particular, we show that the genetic code exhibits, beyond the neutral replacement patterns of amino acid substitutions, optimal properties by favoring simultaneous evolution of proteins(More)
Messenger RNA sequences often have to preserve functional secondary structure elements in addition to coding for proteins. We present a statistical analysis of retroviral mRNA which supports the hypothesis that the natural genetic code is adapted to such complementary coding. These sequences are still able to explore efficiently the space of possible(More)
Primary intestinal tuberculosis is unusual in European and North American countries today. Its diagnosis is often surprising and differentiation from inflammatory bowel diseases is difficult. The authors present a rare case of severe stercoral peritonitis caused by multiple intestinal perforations in a patient with primary ileocecal tuberculosis. Initial(More)
This paper focuses on the design, realization, and verification of a novel phonocardiographic- based fiber-optic sensor and adaptive signal processing system for noninvasive continuous fetal heart rate (fHR) monitoring. Our proposed system utilizes two Mach-Zehnder interferometeric sensors. Based on the analysis of real measurement data, we developed a(More)
Aims/Objectives This man 10 years ago underwent surgery for acute aortic dissection type Stanford A. During this surgery the ascending aorta including the aortic valve had been replaced. The regular follow-up by echocardiography was performed once a year. After 10 years without any problem, the patient began to suffer from atypical problems repeated(More)
Mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae with an increased sensitivity to the t ryptophan analogue l~Lr5-methylt ryptophan (5MT) were isolated SCI~f~RCH, MIOZZARI and HOTTER, J. Bact. 717, 1131-1140, 1974). A number of these 5MT sensitive mutants were characterized and assigned to one of the following 3 classes: class I, strains with altered act ivi ty and/or(More)
