An experiment was carried out to study digestion and intestinal AA in three ruminally and duodenally cannulated, lactating cows fed freshly cut grass (Lolium perenne) fertilized with 500 and 275 kg of N/ha per yr, respectively. High N grass was fed in June and October, and low N grass was offered in July and September. Composite samples of the grass fed in(More)

Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) are enriched in signaling and regulatory functions because disordered segments permit interaction with several proteins and hence the re-use of the same protein in multiple pathways. Understanding IDP regulation is important because altered expression of IDPs is associated with many diseases. Recent studies show that(More)
The transition zone (TZ) ciliary subcompartment is thought to control cilium composition and signalling by facilitating a protein diffusion barrier at the ciliary base. TZ defects cause ciliopathies such as Meckel–Gruber syndrome (MKS), nephronophthisis (NPHP) and Joubert syndrome (JBTS). However, the molecular composition and mechanisms underpinning TZ(More)
Precise control of protein turnover is essential for cellular homeostasis. The ubiquitin-proteasome system is well established as a major regulator of protein degradation, but an understanding of how inherent structural features influence the lifetimes of proteins is lacking. We report that yeast, mouse, and human proteins with terminal or internal(More)
In a previous study we investigated the differential time courses of the vasodilator effect of various calcium antagonists (CA) in small isolated rat mesenteric arteries (van der Lee et al., Fundam Clin Pharmacol, 1998: 12: 607-12). We concluded that the differences observed could be due to differences in lipophilicity between the CA studied. A measure for(More)
It is rather the rate of the vasodilator effect than its magnitude which determines the triggering of reflex tachycardia associated with dihydropyridine calcium antagonists (DHP-CA). We therefore compared the rate of the vasodilator effects of a series of CA (both DHP and non-DHP) in rat isolated mesenteric artery preparations (size 256 +/- 3 microns,(More)
AIM To determine the effects of propofol for endotracheal intubation in neonates in daily clinical practice. METHODS We prospectively studied the pharmacodynamic effects of intravenous propofol administration in neonates who needed endotracheal intubation at the neonatal intensive care unit. RESULTS Propofol was used for 62 intubations in neonates with(More)
JASPAR (http://jaspar.genereg.net) is an open-access database of curated, non-redundant transcription factor (TF)-binding profiles stored as position frequency matrices (PFMs) and TF flexible models (TFFMs) for TFs across multiple species in six taxonomic groups. In the 2018 release of JASPAR, the CORE collection has been expanded with 322 new PFMs (60 for(More)
