Fgfs direct embryogenesis of several organs, including the lung, limb, and anterior pituitary. Here we report male-to-female sex reversal in mice lacking Fibroblast growth factor 9 (Fgf9), demonstrating a novel role for FGF signaling in testicular embryogenesis. Fgf9(-/-) mice also exhibit lung hypoplasia and die at birth. Reproductive system phenotypes(More)
The rat intestinal fatty acid binding protein (I-FABP) gene has been used as a model to study temporal and spatial differentiation of the gut epithelium while its protein product has been used as a model for examining the atomic details of noncovalent fatty acid-protein interactions. We have isolated the mouse I-FABP gene (Fabpi) and determined its(More)
DNA was isolated from a circular derivative of chromosome III to prepare a library of recombinant plasmids enriched in chromosome III sequences. An ordered set of recombinant plasmids and bacteriophages carrying the contiguous 210-kilobase region of chromosome III between the HML and MAT loci was identified, and a complete restriction map was prepared with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether home care givers can accurately measure plasma sodium in children with diabetes insipidus (DI) by using an I-STAT portable clinical analyzer (PCA) and to collect preliminary data on home PCA use. STUDY DESIGN Care givers of 4 children with DI and impaired thirst or inability to access water freely were instructed in PCA use.(More)
We have tested the clones used in the European Yeast Chromosome III Sequencing Programme for possible artefacts that might have been introduced during cloning or passage through Escherichia coli. Southern analysis was performed to compare the BamHI, EcoRI, HindIII and PstI restriction pattern for each clone with that of the corresponding locus on chromosome(More)
Signaling through fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) is critical for the development and patterning of the vertebrate skeleton. Gain-of-function alleles of fgfr2 and fgfr3 have been linked to several dominant skeletal disorders in humans, while null mutations in fgfr3 result in the overgrowth of long bones in a mouse model system. Interestingly, the(More)
The region of Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome III centromere-distal to the PGK gene is the site of frequent chromosome polymorphisms. We have sequenced this region from fragments of chromosome III isolated from three different yeast strains, GRF88, CN31C and CF4-16B. The sequence analysis demonstrates that these polymorphisms are associated with the(More)
A review of 1,722 tonsil and adenoid procedures performed between 1978 and 1986 is presented. Each year there has been a progressive decrease in the number of procedures performed; the incidence of adenoidectomy has declined particularly. Although infection remains the predominant indication for surgery, there has been a dramatic rise in obstructive sleep(More)
Cricopharyngeal myotomy has gained widespread acceptance as surgical treatment for various forms of cervical dysphagia. The case records of 33 patients who underwent cricopharyngeal myotomy for dysphagia originating from varying underlying diseases are reviewed. The majority of these patients were able to resume oral feeding following myotomy. Analysis of(More)
Thyroid hormone has been implicated as an important factor in rodent development. We have used a strain of mice with a recessive mutation producing congenital primary hypothyroidism (C.RF/J-hyt/+) to study the effects of thyroid hormone on developmental changes in the expression of genes encoding a number of proteins involved in lipid metabolism and(More)
