With a prevalence between 1 and 3%, hereditary forms of intellectual disability (ID) are among the most important problems in health care. Particularly, autosomal-recessive forms of the disorder have a very heterogeneous molecular basis, and genes with an increased number of disease-causing mutations are not common. Here, we report on three different(More)
PURPOSE Primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are neoplastic disorders of skin-homing T cells. Affected skin areas show morphologic similarities with alterations in other T-cell-mediated dermatoses. Furthermore, as in atopic dermatitis but in contrast with psoriasis, patients with CTCL are frequently afflicted by cutaneous bacterial infections that(More)
UNLABELLED Adeno-associated virus (AAV) has long been known to inhibit helper adenovirus (Ad) replication independently of AAV Rep protein expression. More recently, replication of Ad serotype 5 (Ad5)/AAV serotype 2 (AAV-2) hybrid vectors was shown to be inhibited incisby a sequence near the 3' end of AAVrep, termed the Rep inhibition sequence for(More)
The importance of Cytochrome P450-catalyzed modifications of natural products produced by non-ribosomal peptide synthetase machineries is most apparent during glycopeptide antibiotic biosynthesis: specifically, the formation of essential amino acid side chains crosslinks in the peptide backbone of these clinically relevant antibiotics. These cyclization(More)
Feglymycin, a peptide antibiotic produced by Streptomyces sp. DSM 11171, consists mostly of nonproteinogenic phenylglycine-type amino acids. It possesses antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains and antiviral activity against HIV. Inhibition of the early steps of bacterial peptidoglycan synthesis indicated a mode of(More)

Affected skin areas show morphologic similarities with alterations in other T-cell–mediated dermatoses.
