BACKGROUND Phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP(2)) has been implicated in the regulation of the actin cytoskeleton and vesicle trafficking. It stimulates de novo actin polymerization by activating the pathway involving the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP) and the actin-related protein complex Arp2/3. Other studies show that actin polymerizes(More)
Ninety-two cryptotetany tests were performed with simultaneous EMG-recording in the M. Interosseus dorsalis I and the M. Opponens pollicis. It was found that, in 21 cases out of 92 (22.8%), exclusively in the M. Interosseus dorsalis I, and in 11 cases out of 92 (11.9%), exclusively in the M. Opponens pollicis, multiplet activity was detected for at least 2(More)
The F-wave latency of the deep peroneal nerve in function of leg length was determined in 66 normal persons and 25 diabetic patients with known polyneuropathy. The latencies were measured by stimulating the nerve at the ankle and recording the F-wave at the musculus extensor digitorum brevis using a needle electrode. The leg length was represented by the(More)
