A cDNA homologous to that encoding sheep Edg2 protein was cloned from a human lung cDNA library. The full-length sequence encodes a 364-amino acid protein which belongs to the superfamily of guanine nucleotide-binding (G) protein-coupled receptors. Human Edg2 mRNA is widely distributed in human tissues with the highest abundance in brain. HEK293 cells(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE For patients with advanced glaucoma, care must be taken in the management of cataract to prevent loss of long-term intraocular pressure (IOP) control. The authors evaluated the effect of extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) with posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) implantation via the inferotemporal limbal approach on(More)
The Cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator (CUSA) is a dissecting system that allows quick and effective removal of CNS tumors without traction or excessive manipulation of normal tissue. In this article, the immunoperoxidase staining patterns of cytology specimens obtained with the CUSA are compared with those from their corresponding resected surgical(More)
Timely pre-hospital management of snake bite and poisoning cases is hindered by the lack of information about availability of antidotes in hospitals. We aim to build a regional antidote database by collecting real-time antidote stock information from hospital pharmacy inventory systems and make this information available to the emergency medical technicians(More)
