DNA sequence variants in specific genes or regions of the human genome are responsible for a variety of phenotypes such as disease risk or variable drug response. These variants can be investigated directly, or through their non-random associations with neighbouring markers (called linkage disequilibrium (LD)). Here we report measurement of LD along the(More)
In 1993, Przyklenk and colleagues made the intriguing experimental observation that ‘brief ischemia in one vascular bed also protects remote, virgin myocardium from subsequent sustained coronary artery occlusion’ and that this effect ‘…. may be mediated by factor(s) activated, produced, or transported throughout the heart during brief ischemia/reperfusion’.(More)
The recent publication of the complete sequence of human chromosome 22 provides a platform from which to investigate genomic sequence variation. We report the identification and characterization of 12,267 potential variants (SNPs and other small insertions/deletions) of human chromosome 22, discovered in the overlaps of 460 clones used for the chromosome(More)
The retrocuspid papilla (RCP) is a soft well circumscribed nodule located lingually to the mandibular cuspid on the gingival tissue surface. The RCP is observed more frequently in young children and regresses or disappears with age. Little information is available in the literature on this structure. The prevalence of the RCP is discussed as it relates to(More)
Remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) is at a pivotal point in its evolution, both in terms of its adoption as a therapy and its viability commercially. The most usual way of inducing RIC, with a standard blood pressure cuff and a stopwatch, is time-consuming and potentially inaccurate and unsafe. Development of automated devices have facilitated large-scale(More)
