About one year ago, it was speculated that decaying or annihilating Light Dark Matter (LDM) particles could explain the flux and extension of the 511 keV line emission in the galactic centre. Here we present a thorough comparison between theoretical expectations of the galactic positron distribution within the LDM scenario and observational data from(More)
BACKGROUND The acquisition and nurturing of humanistic skills and attitudes constitute an important aim of medical education. In order to assess how conducive the physician-learning environment is to the acquisition of these skills, the authors determined the extent to which clinical teachers are perceived by their trainees as humanistic with patients and(More)
A family is described in which three normal females transmitted to seven males X-linked mental retardation associated with macro-orchidism and a fragile site on the long arm of the X chromosome -- fra(X)(q27). The affected males also had minor clinical features in common: a large forehead, long face, large ears, a long upper lip and large extremities.
Gamma-rays from radioactive 26Al (half-life approximately 7.2 x 10(5) years) provide a 'snapshot' view of continuing nucleosynthesis in the Galaxy. The Galaxy is relatively transparent to such gamma-rays, and emission has been found concentrated along its plane. This led to the conclusion that massive stars throughout the Galaxy dominate the production of(More)
Selective silver staining demonstrated that autosomal bivalents containing transcriptively active nucleolar organizers associated with the sex vesicle during pachytene of mouse spermatocytes. Later in pachytene, the nucleolar organizers covered the portion of the sex vesicle furthest from the attachment to the nuclear envelope. Hybridization in situ(More)
The schematic representation of RHG-banded chromosomes (R-banding was produced by heat denaturation followed by Giemsa staining (RHG) in the 850-band range per haploid set, was prepared showing the relative position, the specific size, and the characteristic staining intensity for each band. To this idiogram was adapted the new International Standard(More)
