A method is presented for protein secondary structure prediction based on a neural network. A training phase was used to teach the network to recognize the relation between secondary structure and amino acid sequences on a sample set of 48 proteins of known structure. On a separate test set of 14 proteins of known structure, the method achieved a maximum(More)
It is known that not all paths are possible in the run time control flow of many programs. It is also known that data flow analysis cannot restrict attention to exactly those paths that are possible. It is therefore usual for analytic methods to consider all paths. Sharper information can be obtained by considering a recursive set of paths that is large(More)
The efficacy of hydroxyurea (HU) and its role in the reduction in mortality in sickle cell patients has been established. Nevertheless, many patients still die of complications of this disease while on HU. Of the 226 patients treated with HU at our center, 38 died (34 of sickle cell-related causes). Acute chest syndrome (ACS) was the most common (35%) cause(More)
The association of sickle cell trait (SCT) and hereditary spherocytosis (HS) has been reported in only 18 patients. Three of these 18 patients experienced splenic infarct or acute splenic sequestration. We report here a 46-year-old African-American male, the oldest reported case to date, who experienced episodes of hemolysis and severe left upper quadrant(More)
PURPOSE Homozygosity for the (AT)7 allele of uridine diphosphate glucuronosyl transferase 1A (UGT1A1) gene polymorphism is associated with increased bilirubin levels in sickle cell anemia (SCA). In the present study, in addition to UGT1A1 promoter genotype, serum bilirubin level was related to other genetic modifiers -beta(S)-globin gene haplotype, Hb F,(More)
Neonatal cyanosis can result from a multitude of acquired and inherited causes. Cyanosis resulting from fetal M hemoglobin (Hb) variants is very rare. Only two (G)gamma variants causing methemoglobinemia and cyanosis in the newborn have been reported to date. Here we describe a novel fetal Hb variant, Hb F-Circleville [Ggamma63(E7)His-->Leu], associated(More)
vM1370 attachedprocessor support is discussed from the point of view of adding radical new function to an existing operating system. Three major design decisions are described, and performance is analyzed as it relates to those decisions. This paper discusses the design and implementation of the attached processor (AP) support first available in Release 4(More)
This report describes a case in which the diagnosis of sickle cell disease (SCD) was established after death. The diagnosis of sickle cell syndrome was made in a 68 year old black patient who was found to have sickled red blood cells in many organs at necropsy although the disease had not been diagnosed during her lifetime. DNA was isolated from a(More)
