BACKGROUND Immediate postoperative admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is still a standard practice at many institutions. Our aim was to examine whether omission of an immediate postoperative ICU admission would be safe and result in improved outcomes and cost after robotic pancreaticoduodenectomy (RPD). METHODS(More)
The 3'-terminal regions of the 25 S rRNA and 35 S rRNA were mapped in the HindIIIC fragment of the T. pyriformis rRNA gene (Niles, E. G., and Jain, R. K. (1981) Biochemistry 20, 905-909). The precise locations of these termini were identified by S1 nuclease mapping. The 35 S rRNA was shown to contain two major 3'-ends, one identical to the 3'-end of the(More)
In selecting a method to produce a recombinant protein, a researcher is faced with a bewildering array of choices as to where to start. To facilitate decision-making, we describe a consensus 'what to try first' strategy based on our collective analysis of the expression and purification of over 10,000 different proteins. This review presents methods that(More)
Structural genomics efforts have produced structural information, either directly or by modeling, for thousands of proteins over the past few years. While many of these proteins have known functions, a large percentage of them have not been characterized at the functional level. The structural information has provided valuable functional insights on some of(More)
BACKGROUND Although posttransplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is associated with poor long-term outcomes short-term outcomes are not well studied in renal transplant recipients (RTRs). METHODS RTRs between January 1999 and December 2000 (n = 181) stratified according to the occurrence of diabetes mellitus (DM), namely, non-DM (n = 72), previous DM (n = 88),(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ coactivator 1-α (PGC1α) is the primary regulator of mitochondrial biogenesis and was recently found to be highly expressed within the intestinal epithelium. PGC1α is decreased in the intestinal epithelium of patients with inflammatory bowel disease, but its role in pathogenesis is uncertain. We now hypothesize(More)
BACKGROUND Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a severe intestinal disease of premature infants with high mortality. Studies suggest a causative relationship between red blood cell (RBC) transfusion and NEC; however, whether RBC transfusion leads to worse outcomes in NEC is unknown. We sought to determine whether RBC transfusion was associated with an(More)
