Sixteen videoconferencing sessions were conducted, with 64 patients scanned over(More)
Ankyrin was identified in the human, bovine and chicken lens as a protein of molecular weight 216 kilodaltons. It is specifically extracted from association with the fiber cell plasma membranes by high-ionic-strength salt solution and is predominantly found in young fiber cells. A protein which is unrelated to plakoglobin, protein 4.1 or ankyrin is also(More)
In some areas, Asian communities constitute a sizeable proportion of the population around a general dental practice, yet some have never been to a dentist in the whole of their lives. A significant number of others fail to visit a dentist regularly. This two-part article aims to clarify some of the issues relating to dental care of minority groups, with(More)
