Here we summarize the clinical history of Ringo, a golden retriever muscular dystrophy (GRMD) dog, who had a mild phenotype despite the absence of muscle dystrophin. Ringo died of cardiac arrest at age 11 and therefore displayed a normal lifespan. One of his descendants, Suflair, born April 2006, also displays a mild course. Dystrophin analysis confirmed(More)
The lack of pathological consequences of cardiac ATP-sensitive potassium channel (K(ATP)) channel gene manipulation is in stark contrast to the effect of similar perturbations in the pancreatic beta-cell. Because the pancreatic and cardiac channel share the same pore-forming subunit (Kir6.2), the different effects of genetic manipulation likely reflect, at(More)
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a lethal X-linked disorder, is the most common and severe form of muscular dystrophies, affecting 1 in 3,500 male births. Mutations in the DMD gene lead to the absence of muscle dystrophin and a progressive degeneration of skeletal muscle. The possibility to treat DMD through cell therapy has been widely investigated. We(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperkalemic cardioplegia (Plegisol) has been shown to result in myocyte swelling and reduced contractility. We have demonstrated the elimination of these detrimental effects by the addition of an adenosine triphosphate-sensitive K+ (KATP) channel opener. To examine whether the mitochondrial or sarcolemmal KATP channel might be involved, volume(More)
These guidelines are a result of several meetings from the Brazilian Stroke Society (Sociedade Brasileira de Doenças Cerebrovasculares – SBDCV, website www.sb-dcv.org.br), which represents the Scientific Department in cerebrovascular diseases of the Brazilian Academy of Neurology, responsible for technical opinions and educational projects related to(More)
Despite its highly nonlinear behavior, the high-speed milling is one of the most common processes in modern manufacturing. As other complex processes, a suitable condition monitoring system is needed to guarantee the minimization of chatter problems. From a pattern classification perspective, the monitoring systems can be decomposed into three general(More)
