BACKGROUND The HIV-1 p6 Gag protein regulates the final abscission step of nascent virions from the cell membrane by the action of two late assembly (L-) domains. Although p6 is located within one of the most polymorphic regions of the HIV-1 gag gene, the 52 amino acid peptide binds at least to two cellular budding factors (Tsg101 and ALIX), is a substrate(More)
This paper presents an approach of collecting contextualized attention metadata combined from inside as well as outside a LMS and analyzing them to create feedback about the student activities for the teaching staff. Two types of analyses were run on the collected data: first, key actions were extracted to identify usage patterns and tendencies throughout(More)
Recently, it has been suggested that effective interactions between two neuronal populations are supported by the phase difference between the oscillations in these two populations, a hypothesis referred to as "communication through coherence" (CTC). Experimental work quantified effective interactions by means of the power correlations between the two(More)
Due to poor correlation of slice thickness and orientation, verification of radiological methods with histology is difficult. Thus, a procedure for three-dimensional reconstruction, reslicing and parameterization of histological data was developed, enabling a proper correlation with radiological data. Two different subcutaneous tumors were examined by MR(More)
A trial fibrillation (AF), the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia, is associated with a risk of associated complications such as stroke and heart failure, in addition to a higher rate of mortality. Sinus rhythm can often be restored with electric cardioversion; however, the rate of AF recurrence is high, even with administration of antiarrhyth-mic drugs(More)
BACKGROUND There is a lack of data on the comparative efficacy and procedural safety of open irrigated radiofrequency (RF) and cryoballoon catheter (CB) ablation for pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. METHODS AND RESULTS In a prospective, noninferiority study, 315 patients were randomly assigned to RF (n=159) or CB(More)
Natural history museums collect and provide access to digital representations of artifacts from their vast collections. The representations are used, among others, to facilitate their use in educational settings. For example, school teachers use them to prepare class visits to the museums. In the context of the European project Natural Europe, these(More)
