The genetic makeup of animal and plant populations is determined by established principles and concepts. Ecology and evolution provide a basic theoretical framework for understanding how genetic changes occur in populations. Whether these rules can be applied to host retroviral populations is unknown. Individuals infected with the human immunodeficiency(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of two weeks of high dosage iron supplementation on various blood iron indices and metabolic parameters in non-anemic, iron-depleted competitive female cross-country runners. The subjects were highly trained members of the Colorado State University cross-country team and were completing 40 to 50 miles(More)
OBJECTIVE Congenital hyperinsulinism in infancy (CHI) is characterized by unregulated insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells; severe forms are associated with defects in ABCC8 and KCNJ11 genes encoding sulfonylurea receptor 1 (SUR1) and Kir6.2 subunits, which form ATP-sensitive K(+) (K(ATP)) channels in β-cells. Diazoxide therapy often fails in the(More)
OBJECTIVE—Congenital hyperinsulinism in infancy (CHI) is characterized by unregulated insulin secretion from pancreatic b-cells; severe forms are associated with defects in ABCC8 and KCNJ11 genes encoding sulfonylurea receptor 1 (SUR1) and Kir6.2 subunits, which form ATP-sensitive K (KATP) channels in b-cells. Diazoxide therapy often fails in the treatment(More)
Retroviral antibody capable of binding to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) Class II molecule has been documented in human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1)-infected patients. Interactions between the MHC Class II receptor and the T-cell receptor (TCR) are central to the immune response. Importantly, retroviral antibody possesses a much higher(More)
