Six levels of anulus and nucleus were obtained from each of three spines: one with idiopathic scoliosis, one with cerebral palsy, and one age-matched control. Proteoglycans from all spines had the same extractability and distribution in the associative and dissociative cesium chloride density gradients. In all cases, the anulus differed from the nucleus(More)
The Muller F element (4.2 Mb, ~80 protein-coding genes) is an unusual autosome of Drosophila melanogaster; it is mostly heterochromatic with a low recombination rate. To investigate how these properties impact the evolution of repeats and genes, we manually improved the sequence and annotated the genes on the D. erecta, D. mojavensis, and D. grimshawi F(More)
Four patients with severe bronchiectasis (chronic bronchial suppuration) are described who developed cutaneous lesions associated with exacerbations of their respiratory disease. The skin abnormalities consisted of purpuric lesions in three patients and an erythematous vasculitis in one. Circulating immune complexes were present in all patients and in three(More)
