A 2.91-billion base pair (bp) consensus sequence of the euchromatic portion of the human genome was generated by the whole-genome shotgun sequencing method. The 14.8-billion bp DNA sequence was generated over 9 months from 27,271,853 high-quality sequence reads (5.11-fold coverage of the genome) from both ends of plasmid clones made from the DNA of five(More)
Recent preclinical and clinical studies indicate that irradiation using ionizing radiation in the dose range of 15 to 30 Gy may reduce the occurrence of restenosis in patients who have undergone an angioplasty. Several delivery systems of intravascular brachytherapy have been developed to deliver radiation doses in this range with minimal normal tissue(More)
Patterns of hydrophobic and hydrophilic residues play a major role in protein folding and function. Long, predominantly hydrophobic strings of 20-22 amino acids each are associated with transmembrane helices and have been used to identify such sequences. Much less attention has been paid to hydrophobic sequences within globular proteins. In prior work on(More)
OBJECTIVES This study will test the efficacy of motivational interviewing (MI) conducted by primary care providers and dieticians among children ages 2-8 years old with a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 85th and ≤ 97th percentile. METHODS Forty-two practices from the American Academy of Pediatrics, Pediatric Research in Office Settings Network were assigned to(More)
Two hundred-eighteen acutely brain-injured trauma patients with confirmed diagnosis of initial closed head injury completed two types of word fluency generation tasks, animal naming and single-letter-based word generation. Numbers of responses and inferred strategy utilizations were examined and compared with established norms for non-brain-injured(More)
INTRODUCTION The classical doctrine of mass toxicological events provides general guidelines for the management of a wide range of "chemical" events. The guidelines include provisions for the: (1) protection of medical staff with personal protective equipment; (2) simple triage of casualties; (3) airway protection and early intubation; (4) undressing and(More)
The study dealt with expressive communicability (EC), i.e., the amount, fluency, elaboration, clarity, and veracity of the voluntarily transmitted information about oneself. Low EC is considered as a schizophrenic symptom and as a cause of interpersonal difficulties in normals. For investigating the motivational antecedents of EC we applied the cognitive(More)
