Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is a pathogenic fungus that undergoes a temperature-dependent cell morphology change from mycelium (22 degrees C) to yeast (36 degrees C). It is assumed that this morphological transition correlates with the infection of the human host. Our goal was to identify genes expressed in the mycelium (M) and yeast (Y) forms by EST(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between ATM, TP53 and MDM2 polymorphisms in prostate cancer patients and morbidity after radiotherapy. The presence of ATM (rs1801516), TP53 (rs1042522, rs1800371, rs17878362, rs17883323, and rs35117667), and MDM2 (rs2279744) polymorphisms was assessed by direct sequencing of PCR fragments from 48(More)
The availability of the complete genome of the Gram-negative beta-proteobacterium Chromobacterium violaceum has increasingly impacted our understanding of this microorganism. This review focuses on the genomic organization and structural analysis of the deduced proteins of the chemosensory adaptation system of C. violaceum. C. violaceum has multiple(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the rhythmic profile in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PA). DESIGN In order to evaluate the rhythmic profile of patients with PA, we have carried out ambulatory 24 hour ECG recordings in 22 patients presented consecutively to the Holter ECG laboratory. SETTING Patients followed in a specialised rheumatology consultation, in(More)
AIMS To test the hypothesis that differences in chickpea yields obtained in four distinct Portuguese regions (Beja, Elvas-Casas Velhas, Elvas-Estação Nacional de Melhoramento de Plantas (ENMP) and Evora) could be due to variation between the natural rhizobia populations. METHODS AND RESULTS Estimation of the size of the different rhizobial populations(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine the presence of silent myocardial ischemia and the degree of coronary obstructions. DESIGN Successively patients with myocardial infarction. SETTING Patients admitted to the coronary intensive care, later followed in a specialised out-patients consultation. PATIENTS 62 patients with previous myocardial(More)
A new circuit topology is proposed to replace the actual pulse transformer and thyratron based resonant modulator that supplies the 60 kV target potential for the ion acceleration of the On-Line Isotope Mass Separator accelerator, the stability of which is critical for the mass resolution downstream separator, at the European Organization for Nuclear(More)
The authors emphasize some adrenal embryologic features, mainly the cortex and medulla relationships. After brief considerations both on the biosynthesis and physiologic actions of aldosterone, the Primary Hyperaldosteronism physiopathology is described. The clinical, biochemical and anatomic evidences are presented as a basis for both the Syndrome(More)
