The genomic organization of the annexin A11 gene was determined in mouse and human to assess its congruity with other family members and to examine the species variation in alternative splicing patterns. Mouse annexin A11 genomic clones were characterized by restriction analysis, Southern blotting, and DNA sequencing, and the homologous human gene(More)
The fatty acid profile of red blood cell phospholipids and the total phospholipid and cholesterol contents of erythrocyte membrane in preterm infants in the first month of life were studied. Influences of human milk and adapted formula and dietary nucleotides supplementation at a level similar to that found in human milk were evaluated. Nineteen preterm(More)
To determine if renal functional alterations in diabetes mellitus could be related to disturbances of vasoactive systems, renal plasma flow (RPF), glomerular filtration rate (GFR), PRA (basal and stimulated), plasma catecholamine levels, and urinary excretion of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), 6-keto-PGF1 alpha, and kallikrein were determined in 21 patients with(More)
Annexin V is a phospholipase A2 and protein kinase C inhibitory protein with calcium channel activity and an undefined role in cellular signal transduction, inflammation, growth and differentiation. Three genomic clones for human annexin V (ANX5) were characterized by restriction analysis, Southern blotting and sequencing. ANX5 spans at least 29 kb of the(More)
Anchorin CII (annexin V) was first characterized as a collagen-binding protein and later identified as the chick homologue of human endonexin II, a member of the annexin gene family. Its gene (anx5) structure and sequence have been investigated to provide insight into the evolution and regulation of this important protein, and to elucidate its putative role(More)
Mouse annexin V genomic clones were characterized by restriction analysis, Southern blotting and DNA sequencing. The entire gene spans close to 50 kb of the mouse genome and contains 14 exons ranging in size from 31 bp for exon 2 to 482 bp for exon 13 up to the polyadenylation site. Intron sizes range from 111 bp for intron 1b to more than 17 kb for intron(More)
AIM To evaluate the cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of sodium percarbonate (SPC) in comparison with bleaching agents used on discoloured pulpless teeth. METHODOLOGY The cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of bleaching agents were evaluated both in their pure form as well as at concentrations commonly used in clinical practice. Hydrogen peroxide (HP), carbamide(More)
Triflusal (2-acetoxy-4-trifluormethylbenzoic acid) is a platelet-antiaggregant drug that selectively inhibits thromboxane synthesis with little effect on prostacyclin production. In this study, we evaluated the effect of 5-day administration of 900 mg/day triflusal on glomerular filtration rate (GFR), renal plasma flow (RPF), urinary albumin excretion(More)
Objective: To evaluate the differences in stromal corneal nerves between normal patients and keratoconus patients. Material and methods: A total of 140 eyes of 70 normal patients (group A) and 122 eyes of 87 keratoconus patients (group B) were examined with the confocal microscope, with a central scan of the total corneal thickness being taken. The(More)
