Immunoglobulin (Ig) and T cell receptor (TCR) genes are assembled during lymphocyte maturation through site-specific V(D)J recombination events. Here we show that E2A proteins act in concert with RAG1 and RAG2 to activate Ig VK1J but not Iglambda VlambdaIII-Jlambda1 rearrangement in an embryonic kidney cell line. In contrast, EBF, but not E2A, promotes(More)
STUDY DESIGN Survival following mechanical ventilation for acute respiratory failure has important implications for medical decision-making and allocation of expensive resources for critical care. PROCEDURE We reviewed a 5-year experience with mechanical ventilation in 383 men with acute respiratory failure and studied the impact of patient age, cause of(More)
Animal experimenters investigations on the influence of various solutions of peracetic acid on the epithelium of the urinary bladder were carried out on rabbits. The results of the experiments showed that solutions of peracetic acid up to 0.01% are tolerated nearly without any reaction also under extreme experimental conditions. Higher concentrations of(More)
The diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide is partially dependent on lung volume at which it is measured. As a consequence, the diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide is often indexed to the simultaneously measured lung volume (VA), giving rise to the term DL/VA. This reflects the diffusing capacity of carbon monoxide per unit area of lung parenchyma. The(More)
A wild-type strain of Staphylococcus aureus, which inactivates a wide variety of aminoglycosides (except the gentamicin components), has been found to harbor a plasmid (RAp01) that mediates the biosynthesis of a nucleotidyltransferase. This enzyme modifies the 4'-hydroxy function of these antibiotics. The plasmid has been studied, the enzyme responsible for(More)
AIM Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is one of the most common procedures in orthopaedic surgery, the cost of surgical training has as yet not been quantified. In a pilot study, we investigated the economic impact of surgical training under DRG system influences, analysing the cost-proceeds structure in surgical training for orthopaedic residents.
