New neurons continue to be generated in the dentate gyrus throughout adulthood. Previous studies have shown that a significant proportion of new granule cells labeled with the thymidine analogue bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) are lost from the adult dentate gyrus within 2 weeks. How long this loss continues and the extent to which it represents cell death, as(More)
HECT (homologous to the E6AP C terminus) ubiquitin ligases have diverse functions in eukaryotic cells. In screens for proteins that bind to the HECT ubiquitin ligase WWP1, we identified Spartin, which is also known as SPG20. This protein is truncated in a neurological disease, Troyer syndrome. In this study, we show that SPG20 associates with the surface of(More)
BACKGROUND Validated outcome measures in dermatology help standardize and improve patient care. A scoring system of skin disease severity in dermatomyositis known as the Cutaneous Dermatomyositis Disease Area and Severity Index (CDASI) has been developed. OBJECTIVES To simplify and improve the tool for clinical research and care, we modified the CDASI and(More)
A perineurioma is a benign peripheral nerve sheath neoplasm thought to be derived from cells of the perineurium, the cellular sheathing of peripheral nerve fascicles. The histological, immunohistochemical (positive for epithelial membrane antigen, collagen type IV, laminin and vimentin but not S-100 protein) and ultrastructural features of a perineurioma(More)
