To assess the role of NOD2/CARD15 variants on the long-term outcome of allogeneic stem cell transplantation in a genetically homogeneous group, we extended our previous study (cohort I, n = 78) and typed DNA for NOD2/CARD15 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from an additional 225 recipients and their HLA-identical sibling donors (cohort II) treated at(More)
A detailed mathematical analysis of the diffusion process of neurotransmitter inside the synaptic cleft is presented and the spatio-temporal concentration profile is calculated. Using information about the experimentally observed time course of glutamate in the cleft the effective diffusion coefficient Dnet is estimated as Dnet approximately 20-50 nm(2)(More)
We present a minimal kinetic model for excitatory synaptic transmission to cerebellar Purkinje cells. The main components are a kinetic model for a single glutamate receptor, which is calibrated with the help of patch clamp data, and a mean field approximation for the dynamics of a population of channels, which generate an EPSC. The resulting minimal model(More)
Tyr-3-Octreotide is a synthetic derivative of somatostatin and a somatostatin-receptor analogue. The iodine-123-labelled compound localizes somatostatin-receptor-positive tumours. In this paper two patients are reported in whom somatostatin receptors were demonstrated in vitro. In a 60-year-old female with an islet cell carcinoma of the pancreas, multiple(More)
Functional (nonorganic) dysphonia is often characterized by vocal instability. The purpose of the prospective study was to examine whether there is a difference in vocal instability of functional dysphonic voices compared with healthy ones, this means whether electroglottographic perturbation values differ (1) between healthy and dysphonic voices and (2)(More)
Slices of entire forebrain hemispheres were taken from early postnatal rat pups and maintained as organotypic slice cultures. Basal forebrain cholinergic neurons, identified by histochemical staining for acetylcholinesterase, develop axons that grow rapidly into cerebral cortex. Ingrowth occurs by two routes: some axons course laterally from the basal(More)
