The MAL proteolipid is a nonglycosylated integral membrane protein found in glycolipid-enriched membrane microdomains. In polarized epithelial Madin-Darby canine kidney cells, MAL is necessary for normal apical transport and accurate sorting of the influenza virus hemagglutinin. MAL is thus part of the integral machinery for glycolipid-enriched(More)
Automatic temporal segmentation of music signals into note onsets is central for a large number of audio applications. In this paper, we present a variation of a previously existing note onset detection method, based on the so-called spectral energy flux. The proposed algorithm has a lower computational cost and incorporates a more accurate estimation of(More)
Two chronic, nonfluent aphasia patients participated in overt naming fMRI scans, pre- and post-a series of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) treatments as part of a TMS study to improve naming. Each patient received 10, 1-Hz rTMS treatments to suppress a part of R pars triangularis. P1 was a 'good responder' with improved naming and phrase(More)
OBJECTIVE To present pretreatment and post-treatment language data for a nonfluent aphasia patient who received 2 treatment modalities: (1) continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for his sleep apnea, starting 1-year poststroke; and (2) repetitive transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (TMS), starting 2 years poststroke. BACKGROUND Language data were(More)
The human mal gene, identified during a search for cDNAs selectively expressed during T-cell development, encodes a highly hydrophobic protein belonging to a group of proteins, termed proteolipids, characterized by their unusual property of being soluble in organic solvents used to extract cell lipids. To study the localization of the MAL protein we have(More)
Primary mediastinal large B-cell lymphoma (PMBL) appears to be a distinct clinicopathologic entity among diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBLs). To find molecular alterations associated with this disease, we compared the mRNAs expressed in 3 PMBLs and 3 peripheral DLBLs by differential display-reverse transcription (DDRT) and identified a mRNA specifically(More)
In recent years, overlap in biologic and morphologic features has been identified between classic Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) and B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Nevertheless, the therapeutic approaches for these diseases remain different. We undertook a study of "mediastinal gray zone lymphomas" (MGZL), with features transitional between cHL nodular sclerosis (NS)(More)
Although primary mediastinal (thymic) large B-cell lymphoma has been primarily studied, its precise phenotype, molecular characteristics, and histogenesis are still a matter of debate. The International Extranodal Lymphoma Study Group collected 137 such cases for extensive pathological review. Histologically, the lymphomatous growth was predominantly(More)
Combinatorial association of different lipid species generates microheterogeneity in biological membranes. The association of glycosphingolipids with cholesterol forms membrane microdomains--lipid rafts--that are involved in specialised pathways of protein/lipid transport and signalling. Lipid rafts are normally dispersed in cellular membranes and appear to(More)
