The B-upstream segment (BUS) of PR-B is a 164 amino acid N-terminal extension that is missing in PR-A and is responsible for the functional differences reported between the two isoforms. BUS contains an activation function (AF3) which is defined by a core domain between residues 54-154(More)
Renal involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is usually immune complex mediated and may have multiple different presentations. Pauci-immune necrotizing and crescentic glomerulonephritis (NCGN) refers to extensive glomerular inflammation with few or no immune deposits that may result in rapid decline in renal function.

This is the first presentation in the literature of a radial tendon flexor pulley in the distal forearm adjacent to the flexor carpi radialis. The clinical significance is that in performing wrist tendon arthroplasty, this structure and, in close proximity, the sensory branch of the median nerve may be encountered. Whether cutting the pulley of the flexor(More)
