The availability of dense genetic linkage maps of mammalian genomes makes feasible a wide range of studies, including positional cloning of monogenic traits, genetic dissection of polygenic traits, construction of genome-wide physical maps, rapid marker-assisted construction of congenic strains, and evolutionary comparisons. We have been engaged for the(More)
A map of 30,181 human gene-based markers was assembled and integrated with the current genetic map by radiation hybrid mapping. The new gene map contains nearly twice as many genes as the previous release, includes most genes that encode proteins of known function, and is twofold to threefold more accurate than the previous version. A redesigned, more(More)
A whole-genome radiation hybrid (RH) panel was used to construct a high-resolution map of the rat genome based on microsatellite and gene markers. These include 3,019 new microsatellite markers described here for the first time and 1,714 microsatellite markers with known genetic locations, allowing comparison and integration of maps from different sources.(More)
Macrophage-like U-937 cells secrete a 22-kilodalton heparin-binding growth factor that is mitogenic for BALB-3T3 fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells, but not endothelial cells. The amino acid sequence predicted from complementary DNA clones indicates that the mitogen is a new member of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) family. This heparin-binding EGF-like(More)
The amyloid proteins isolated from neuritic plaques and the cerebrovasculature of Alzheimer's disease are self-aggregating moieties termed A4 protein and beta-protein, respectively. A putative A4 amyloid precursor (herein termed A4(695] has been characterized by analysis of a human brain complementary DNA. We report here the sequence of a closely related(More)
An open-circuit (OpCirc) acetylene uptake cardiac output (QT) method was modified for use during exercise. Two computational techniques were used. OpCirc1 was based on the integrated uptake vs. end-tidal change in acetylene, and OpCirc2 was based on an iterative finite difference modeling method. Six subjects [28-44 yr, peak oxygen consumption (VO(2)) =(More)
BACKGROUND Lipodystrophy (LD; peripheral lipoatrophy, central adiposity) hyperlipidaemia and insulin resistance often complicate protease inhibitor-containing antiretroviral therapy. Lipoatrophy and abdominal distension were observed in protease inhibitor-naive nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) recipients with lactic acidaemia and(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the prevalence, severity and factors associated with the HIV lipodystrophy syndrome. METHODS Cross-sectional study of lipodystrophy conducted in high HIV caseload primary care sites and HIV outpatient clinics. A subset of patients was examined using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) and single cut abdominal computerized(More)
Intravenous administration of 0.04-0.08 mg/kg morphine sulfate reduced both sensory intensity and unpleasantness visual analogue scale (VAS) responses to graded 5 sec nociceptive temperature stimuli (45-51 degrees C) in a dose-dependent manner. The lower doses of morphine (0.04 and 0.06 mg/kg) resulted in statistically reliable reductions in affective but(More)
Effects of azadirachtin, a triterpenoid extracted from neem seed, Azadirachta indica A. Juss., were similar to those of insect growth regulators against the immature stages of the born fly, Haematobia irritans (L.), the stable fly, Stomoxys calcitrans (L.), and the house fly, Musca domestica L. When an ethanolic extract of ground seed was blended into cow(More)
