Insulin from the beta-cells of the pancreatic islets of Langerhans controls energy homeostasis in vertebrates, and its deficiency causes diabetes mellitus. During embryonic development, the transcription factor neurogenin 3 (Neurog3) initiates the differentiation of the beta-cells and other islet cell types from pancreatic endoderm, but the genetic program(More)
with 1 cell/HPF obtained with mi-croscopy of the urinary sediment). Fewer epithelial cells and bacteria were seen in this population. In both groups, however, the values for erythrocytes and leukocytes varied, with ranges of ϳ1–36 cells/␮L and ϳ3–57 cells/␮L, respectively , when the results between the 5th and 95th percentile were examined. These values are(More)
BACKGROUND Malformations of the cerebral cortex may be associated with severe epilepsy and status epilepticus. It has been shown that status epilepticus models induce excitotoxic cell death. In humans, very few data are available. CASE AND RESULTS We report a case of a multifocal disorder of the lamination diagnosed in a neonate, born at 30 weeks'(More)
