As a result, the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and(More)
The binding of thyroxine to proteins in the blood plasma of the turtle, Trachemys scripta, was analyzed by incubation with radioactive thyroxine, electrophoresis and autoradiography. Albumin and an alpha-globulin were found to bind thyroxine; no thyroxine-binding transthyretin was detected in the prealbumin region. In contrast to blood plasma, a(More)
To date, there have been several systematic reviews with meta-analysis that have shown no reduction in mortality with the use of inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Importantly, these reports fail to make a distinction between the pediatric and adult patient. The number of adult patients in these reviews(More)
The apparent high degree of homology of a blood protein with a unique dual binding affinity for two distinct hormones, thyroxin (T4) and vitamin D, isolated from a turtle, Trachemys scripta (Family Emydidae) and mammalian vitamin D binding protein (DBP) prompted further interspecific comparison to better understand the structure of functional binding sites.(More)
