Total butyrylcholinesterase activity (EC 3.1.1.8) was previously suggested as a marker for metabolic syndrome. The present study examined total butyrylcholinesterase activity and the relative and absolute activities of two butyrylcholinesterase electrophoretic bands (C(4/5) and C(OF) in 99 obese individuals (body mass index > or = 30 kg/m2) presenting the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) activities (total and band specific) and body mass index (BMI) in obese and nonobese individuals, considering other variables (anthropometric, biochemical and hormonal) and the leanness process. SUBJECTS Obese (BMI> or =30 kg/m(2); N=181) and nonobese individuals (N=265),(More)
The butyrylcholinesterase (BChE; EC 3.1.1.8) activities of two electrophoretic bands of the CHE2 C5+ phenotype--C5 and C(OF) (other forms)--were quantified by densitometry in 100 individuals. The activity data suggested that, in addition to determining C5, the CHE2*C5+ allele also increases the level of other BChE forms. Since the relative activity of C5(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of self-reported HIV among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Brazil. METHODS MSM 18 years of age or older were recruited to a multicenter study using respondent-driven sampling. We compared self-report of the HIV test with a rapid HIV test using the kappa coefficient. RESULTS A total of(More)
The activity of a supposedly heteromeric complex (C4/5) of butyrylcholinesterase (BChE; EC 3.1.1.8) was analyzed in relation to body mass index (BMI). The activities of the C4/5 and C(OF) (other molecular forms) bands in CHE2 C5- (n = 447) and CHE2 C5+ (n = 88) individuals were quantified by densitometry. Since the absolute activity of C4/5 (AC4/5) showed(More)

The average transverse momentum hp T i has been studied as a function of the charge multiplicity n in + p, K + p and pp collisions at 250 GeV/c (p s 22 GeV) and compared to that at other energies. The eeect of cuts in rapidity and p T is demonstrated. A comparison to currently used low-p T models shows that the two-chain Dual Parton Model underestimates the(More)

The charged particle multiplicity distribution has been studied for non-single-diiractive + p and pp collisions at p s = 22 GeV, for full phase space as well as for intervals in rapidity, azimuthal angle and transverse momentum. In general, the multiplicity distribution is well described by a negative binomial. From comparison of the distribution for(More)

At 250 GeV/c, the inclusive + == ? ratio is similar for the fragmentation region of + p, K + p and pp collisions. From a comparison to results at lower energies and from negative meson beams a long range charge ow is deduced. For all energies, this eeect is strongly underestimated by currently used low-p T models. 1 If no charge is exchanged between beam(More)

A collective \sea-gull" eeect is observed for a system of fast hadrons produced in the fragmentation regions of non-diiractive + p-interactions at 250 GeV/c. The eeect is not reproduced by the FRITIOF fragmentation model in its details. It is demonstrated that hard-like processes, both in the collision phase and in the fragmentation phase, are not properly(More)

The charged particle multiplicity distribution is studied for non-single-diiractive + p collisions at p s = 22 GeV, in central rapidity intervals separated from the outer regions by empty gaps. A priori unexpectedly, also these distributions yield good negative binomial ts. The variation of the parameter 1=k as a function of the gap size can be understood(More)
