To deal with different kinds of DNA damages, there are a number of repair pathways that must be carefully orchestrated to guarantee genomic stability. Many proteins that play a role in DNA repair are involved in multiple pathways and need to be tightly regulated to conduct the functions required for efficient repair of different DNA damage types, such as(More)
Since the initial discovery of genes involved in hereditary breast cancer in humans, a vast wealth of information has been published. Breast cancer proteins were shown to work as tumor suppressors primarily through their involvement in DNA-damage repair. Surprisingly, homologs of these genes can be found in plant genomes, as well. Here, we want to give an(More)
Capillary electrophoretic separation profiles of cleaved variants of beta2-microglobulin (beta2m) reflect the conformational equilibria existing in solutions of these proteins. The characterization of these equilibria is of interest since beta2m is responsible for amyloid formation in dialysis-related amyloidosis and thus is able to attain alternative(More)
BACKGROUND Regardless of the simple surgical technique, the success of the subtalar arthrodesis is limited by the rate of non-unions of the arthrodesis. The functional outcome of workers compensation is known to be poorer compared to patients without pending litigation. The aim of this study was to quantify the rate of non-unions and to determine risk(More)
Dynamic capillary electrophoresis (DCE) and computer simulation of the elution profiles with the theoretical plate and the stochastic model has been applied to determine the isomerization barriers of the three dipeptides L-alanyl-L-proline, L-leucyl-L-proline, and L-phenylalanyl-L-proline. The separation of the rotational cis-trans isomers has been(More)
Dynamic capillary electrophoresis (DCE) and computer simulation of the elution profiles with the stochastic model has been applied to determine the isomerization barriers of the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat. The separation of the rotational cis-trans isomeric drug has been performed in an aqueous 20 mM borate buffer at pH 9.3.(More)
We report on our treatment experience in Germany with anagrelide, a novel platelet lowering agent, in 48 patients (27 females, 21 males) with essential thrombocythaemia. Their age was between 19 and 79 yr when anagrelide therapy was initiated. Sixteen patients were previously untreated, 15 pretreated with hydroxyurea and 17 had multiple pretreatments.(More)
Asymmetric catalysis using enantiomerically pure catalysts is one of the most widely used methods for the preparation of enantiomerically pure compounds. The separate synthesis of both enantiomerically pure compounds requires tedious and time-consuming preparation of both enantiomerically pure catalysts or chiral separation of the racemic products. Here, we(More)
Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is usually treated with hydroxyurea or interferon-alpha. In some patients high platelet counts develop although leukocyte counts are well controlled with these drugs. If in such a situation cytoreductive therapy has to be intensified by a increase of the dosage, anemia and leukocytopenia as well as adverse effects of the(More)
