The pattern of DNA methylation established during embryonic development is necessary for the control of gene expression and is preserved during the replicative process. DNA regions of about 1-2 kb in size, termed CpG islands and located mostly in the promoter regions of housekeeping genes, are protected from methylation, despite being about 6-10 times(More)
Angiogenesis is characterised by activation, migration and proliferation of endothelial cells and is central to the pathology of cancer, cardiovascular disease and chronic inflammation. Somatostatin is an inhibitory polypeptide that acts through five receptors (sst 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Sst has previously been reported in endothelium, but their role remains(More)
OBJECTIVE The sensitivity of pinch movement discrimination between the thumb and index finger was assessed with and without elastic resistance. BACKGROUND Researchers have examined the effect of elastic resistance on control of single upper-limb movements; however, no one has explored how elastic resistance affects proprioceptive acuity when using two(More)
A b s t r a c t : Severe winter storms, those producing 6 inches or more snowfall and/or damaging glaze, occur five times a year in Illinois, and cause more damage than other forms of severe weather. The climatology of all severe winter storms in 1900-1960, their damages, their synoptic weather conditions, and information applicable to design and(More)
In order to recover 3D-information from stereo image pairs, a number of stereo matching methods are available. These methods mainly differ in various tokens which are applied to solve the correspondence problem between left and right image. In most of the line segment based stereo matching algorithms , geometrical and structural information is used to(More)
OBJECTIVE To pilot and feasibility-test supervised final year undergraduate pharmacy student-led medication reviews for patients with diabetes to enable definitive trial design. METHOD Third year pharmacy students were recruited from one UK School of Pharmacy and trained to review patient's medical records and provide face-to-face consultations under(More)
