Ornithine decarboxylase and its inhibitor protein, antizyme are key regulators of polyamine biosynthesis. We examined their expression in the adult rat brain using in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry. Both genes were widely expressed and their expression patterns were mostly overlapping and relatively similar. The levels of antizyme mRNA were(More)
In subjects with different types of cleft palate, palatal shape and symmetry were evaluated utilizing the moiré contourography technique. The sample consisted of 95 subjects with cleft palate and 68 controls. The differences between cleft and control subjects in the transverse and anteroposterior location of the highest point of the palate, palatal axis(More)
In this study, the variation in palatal dimensions, particularly for height, width, and depth, were evaluated in subjects with different types of cleft palate using the moiré technique. The sample consisted of 95 subjects with cleft palate and 68 noncleft individuals. Effects of cleft type, gender, developmental stage of the dentition, missing teeth, and 11(More)
The purpose of the present study was to determine reproducibility of the photographic technique, intra- and inter-examiner reliability of the moiré method for investigating tooth and palatal morphology as well as the agreement between the moiré method and the palatometer in measuring palatal height. Intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC) of 0.88 to 0.95(More)
