Several oncogenes isolated by the NIH/3T3 transformation assay, i.e., dbl, dbs, lbc, lfc, lsc, net, ost and tim, contain a Dbl homology (DH) and a pleckstrin-homology (PH) domain and act as GEFs (guanine nucleotide exchange factors) for Rho-like GTPases. In a search for genes with oncogenic potential in DNA from the monocytic leukaemia cell line U937, we(More)
Mitochondrial disease can present with a wide range of clinical phenotypes, and knowledge of the clinical spectrum of mitochondrial DNA mutation is constantly expanding. Leigh syndrome (LS) has been reported to be caused by the m.13513G>A mutation in the ND5 subunit of complex I (MT-ND5 m.13513G>A). We present a case of a 12-month-old infant initially(More)
By means of the tumorigenicity assay applying DNA from a patient with a gastric carcinoma (MA) we have already reported the identification of the putative oncogene myeov. In addition we have shown its involvement in t(11;14)-positive multiple myelomas and amplifications of breast tumours and esophageal carcinomas. The failure of myeov cDNA to induce tumour(More)
BACKGROUND Most deaths in severely brain-injured newborns in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) follow discussions and explicit decisions to limit life-sustaining treatment. There is little published information on such discussions. OBJECTIVE To describe the prevalence, nature and outcome of treatment limitation discussions (TLDs) in critically ill(More)
Probiotics for preterm infants have been shown to reduce the incidence of necrotising enterocolitis and all-cause mortality in a recent meta-analysis. It has been argued, however, that some of these results may not be applicable to specific subgroups, e.g. infants with a birth weight of <1,000 g. The specific role of probiotics in improving health outcomes(More)
