A 3.9-kb fragment of the genome of Pseudomonas putida H, containing the complete zwf-pgl-eda-operon, encoding glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase, 6-phosphogluconolactonase and 2-keto-3-deoxy-6-phosphogluconate-aldolase, respectively, and part of the divergently transcribed regulatory gene, hexR, was cloned and analyzed. The nucleotide sequences of these(More)
PURPOSE This study investigates SLC18A2 (vesicular monoamine transporter 2) expression in prostate adenocarcinoma and examines its potential as a predictive marker for prostate cancer patient outcome after radical prostatectomy. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Expression and single nucleotide polymorphism microarray analyses identified SLC18A2 as both down-regulated(More)
BACKGROUND Neuroendocrine (NE) differentiation in prostate cancer (PCa), promoted by NE cell secreted products, appears to be associated with tumor progression, poor prognosis, and hormone-refractory disease. We recently reported secretagogin, a hexa-EF-hand Ca(2+) binding protein, as a novel NE marker in carcinoid tumors of the lung and the(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the prevalence of atopy and respiratory symptoms among baker apprentices at the start of the education and factors associated with non-participation in the study. METHODS A total of 346 students, 22.1(0.6) years of age, mean (SD), from the food production programme of technical colleges in Denmark were invited to participate in a 3(More)
The genetics and relationships between the genes in rye located in the nucleus and cytoplasm of the male sterility of the G-type were investigated. A factor inducing male sterility was found in the cytoplasms or rye cv Schlägler alt and rye cv Norddeutscher Champagner. Monogenic inheritance was observed in linkage tests. Using primary trisomies of rye cv(More)
Mitochondrial (mt) DNA of a new type of rye cytoplasm (‘Gülzow’, G) that induces cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) was analyzed and compared with rye mtDNAs of different origins MtDNA of the G type was easily distinguishable from mtDNA of another CMS source, ‘Pampa’ (P) type, and from mtDNA of fertile lines with respect to restriction fragment patterns and(More)
BACKGROUND A number of occupational respiratory allergens are food related, and little is known about the responses these allergens elicit in sensitized persons that ingest them. METHODS Nine respiratory flour-allergic volunteers were exposed in a double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge with flour. Responses were monitored by spirometry, acoustic(More)
