Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by the deposition of senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. The presence of the amyloid-beta (Abeta) peptide in senile plaques seems to play a central role in the neuropathology of AD. Diagnosis of AD involves neuropsychological examinations or magnetic resonance imaging and, to date, a specific(More)
Staurosporin, a specific inhibitor of PKC, is widely used in studies of signal transduction pathways. Previous studies have shown that staurosporin induces neurite outgrowth, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Here we report that staurosporin induces neurite outgrowth in HN33 hippocampal cells. Two other PKC inhibitors, Go 6976 (specific for(More)
Microdeletion of 22q11 is responsible for DiGeorge syndrome, velocardiofacial syndrome, congenital conotruncal heart defects, and related disorders. We report our experiences on prenatal diagnosis by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for 22q11 deletion in two fetuses with tetralogy of Fallot. Karyotyping and FISH of the parents revealed that one(More)
