Bilateral cold block of the intracortical microstimulation (ICMS)-defined swallow cortex markedly affected the ability of monkeys to carry out swallowing. Significant changes also occurred in swallow-related electromyographic (EMG) activity patterns. These findings provide further evidence that the lateral pericentral cortex plays a critical role in the(More)
The glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are widely expressed in mammalian tissues and involved in Phase II detoxification reactions. The GSTs form a supergene family consisting of four distinct families, named alpha (GSTA), mu (GSTM) theta (GSTT) and pi (GSTP). Several of the GST genes are polymorphic in humans and are currently being investigated as possible(More)
High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels in European populations are lower in patients with maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 3 (MODY3) than in those with type 2 diabetes. hs-CRP levels have been suggested to be useful for discriminating MODY3 from type 2 diabetes. As hs-CRP levels are influenced by various factors including race and body(More)
