Detached cucumber (Cucumis sativus L. var. Beit Alpha) cotyledons incubated in darkness with 5-aminolaevulinic acid and either 16O2 air (control) or 18O2 in N2 accumulated protochlorophyllide. This was converted into methyl phaeoporphyrin alpha 5 and analysed by mass spectrometry. The molecular ion of the methyl phaeoporphyrin alpha 5 derived from the 18O2(More)
The 1H-NMR hyperfine shift pattern of the heme in a variety of low-spin ferricytochromes b5 has been analyzed in terms of the angular position of the prosthetic group within a structurally and magnetically-conserved protein matrix. A simple model is presented in which the changes in the spread of the predominantly contact shifted methyl and predominantly(More)
BACKGROUND Many patients with bronchiectasis have recurrent hospitalisations for infective exacerbations. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is known to be associated with increased in-hospital mortality. This study examined the frequency of AKI, associated risk-factors, and the association of AKI with in-hospital mortality among patients with bronchiectasis. (More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the prevalence of chronic widespread pain and associated symptoms in a general population sample. METHODS Cross sectional postal survey of 2,034 adults in the north of England. RESULTS The point prevalence of chronic widespread pain was 11.2%. The symptom was strongly associated with other somatic complaints and with measures of(More)
Mg-protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester cyclase activity was assayed in isolated developing cucumber (Cucumis sativus L. var. Beit Alpha) chloroplasts [Chereskin, Wong & Castelfranco (1982) Plant Physiol. 70, 987-993]. The presence of both 6- and 7-methyl esterase activities was detected, which permitted the use of diester porphyrins in a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate risk factors for postherpetic neuralgia, the neuropathic pain that commonly follows herpes zoster. METHODS Using primary care data from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink, we fitted multivariable logistic regression models to investigate potential risk factors for postherpetic neuralgia (defined as pain ≥90 days after zoster,(More)
Aim We assessed the effectiveness of fourth-line mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists in comparison with other fourth-line anti-hypertensive agents in resistant hypertension. Methods and results We systematically searched Medline, EMBASE and the Cochrane library from database inception until January 2016. We included randomised and non-randomised studies(More)
Chronic widespread pain (CWP) is common in the general population. It is unclear how people reporting this problem present in primary care; they may regularly consult for regional pains without being recognized as having a generalized condition. Our objectives were to determine the prevalence of people consulting in primary care for musculoskeletal(More)
Research regarding chronic kidney disease (CKD) and acute kidney injury (AKI) using routinely collected data presents particular challenges. The availability, consistency, and quality of renal data in electronic health records has changed over time with developments in policy, practice incentives, clinical knowledge, and associated guideline changes.(More)
Objective To examine long term cardiorenal outcomes associated with increased concentrations of creatinine after the start of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor/angiotensin receptor blocker treatment.Design Population based cohort study using electronic health records from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink and Hospital Episode Statistics.Setting(More)
