P strains of Drosophila are distinguished from M strains by having P elements in their genomes and also by having the P cytotype, a maternally inherited condition that strongly represses P-element-induced hybrid dysgenesis. The P cytotype is associated with P elements inserted near the left telomere of the X chromosome. Repression by the telomeric P(More)
The X-linked telomeric P elements TP5 and TP6 interact synergistically with non-telomeric P elements to repress hybrid dysgenesis. In this repression, the telomeric P elements exert maternal effects, which, however, are not sufficient to establish synergism with the non-telomeric P elements. Once synergism is established, the capacity to repress dysgenesis(More)
BACKGROUND Periodontitis is associated with glycemic control in patients with diabetes. The purpose of this study was to determine if glycosylated hemoglobin is elevated in patients with periodontitis who have not been diagnosed with diabetes. METHODS Glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) was assessed using a chairside test in 59 adults without diabetes but(More)
The mandibular arch (BA1) is critical for craniofacial development. The distal region of BA1, which gives rise to most of the mandible, is dependent upon an optimal level of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling. BMP activity is modulated in the extracellular space by BMP-binding proteins such as Twisted gastrulation (TWSG1). Twsg1(-/-) mice have a(More)
The methylester of 5-carboxymethyluridine (mcm5U), its degradation product 5-carboxymethyluridine (cm5U) and the corresponding nucleotide (cm5Up) were isolated from brewer's yeast tRNAIII Arg or from the dodecanucleotide containing the anticodon. Their chromatographic and electrophoretic properties and their UV absorbing spectra were identical to that of(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine if self-threading dental implants placed using stopper drills to bicortically engage both the alveolar crest and sinus floor (bicortical fixation) achieved primary and/or secondary stability comparable to that of short implants only engaging alveolar crest cortical bone (unicortical fixation) or implants(More)
A real-time contour detector for medical images is a highly desirable tool for monitoring patients with high cardiac risk. Such a tool is realized with a special purpose computer system, the MCCD-accelerator. Because this system is very complex, faults are hard to detect. It is important to have a powerful set of test-tools available. This report presents a(More)
UNLABELLED screen for diabetes control, this study compared glycosylated hemoglobin (HbAlc) levels found in GCB and serum. Methods: Patients diagnosed (n= 29), with diabetes received a venipuncture on the finger and serum blood (METHODS) obtained was tested for HbAlc status chair-side. GCB (test) was collected at site(s) with evidence of bleeding after(More)
