A 2.91-billion base pair (bp) consensus sequence of the euchromatic portion of the human genome was generated by the whole-genome shotgun sequencing method. The 14.8-billion bp DNA sequence was generated over 9 months from 27,271,853 high-quality sequence reads (5.11-fold coverage of the genome) from both ends of plasmid clones made from the DNA of five(More)
Isolation of proteinase inhibitors from the sea anemone Stichodactyla helianthus was achieved by trichloroacetic acid treatment of the aqueous extract followed by affinity chromatography on trypsin-Sepharose and ion-exchange chromatography on CM-cellulose. The average molecular mass of the major inhibitor (ShPI-I) obtained by fast atom bombardment mass(More)
The product of Snail gene is a repressor of E-cadherin transcription and an inductor of the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition in several epithelial tumor cell lines. In order to examine Snail expression in animal and human tissues, we have raised a monoclonal antibody (MAb) that reacts with the regulatory domain of this protein. Analysis of murine(More)
OBJECTIVES After more than 15 years without dengue activity, a dengue II epidemic was reported in Cuba in 1997. Three thousand and twelve serologically confirmed cases were reported, with 205 dengue hemorrhagic fever/dengue shock syndrome (DHF/DSS) cases and 12 fatalities. This report presents the clinical, serologic, and virologic findings in the 12 fatal(More)
Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibodies (ANCA) were detected in 12 out of 37 (32%) serum samples from patients with anti-glomerular basement membrane (GMB) disease by an indirect immunofluorescence assay. In 11 cases, ANCA were directed against myeloperoxidase, as revealed employing neutrophils devoid of this enzyme as the test substrate. Patients having(More)
Napin BnIb is a representative member of the 2S albumin seed proteins, which consists of two polypeptide chains of 3.8 and 8.4 kDa linked by two disulfide bridges. In this work, a complete assignment of the 1H spectra of napin BnIb has been carried out by two-dimensional NMR sequence-specific methods and its secondary structure determined on the basis of(More)
MANOVA and repeated measures ANOVA approaches have provided evidence of a number of limitations in several event-related potential (ERP) studies due to violations of their statistical assumptions and the typically moderate size of the available sample. Alternative, computer-intensive methods based on permutation principles have recently been developed. Up(More)
BACKGROUND Although circulating tumour DNA has been detected in patients with different types of cancer, little is known of free RNA in cancer patients. AIMS We investigated the presence of RNA from epithelial tumours in plasma from patients with colorectal carcinomas, and its correlation with tumour characteristics and circulating tumour cells. METHODS(More)
Six flavonoids [xanthohumol (XN), 2',4',6',4-tetrahydroxy-3'-prenylchalcone (TP); 2',4',6',4-tetrahydroxy-3'-geranylchalcone (TG); dehydrocycloxanthohumol (DX); dehydrocycloxanthohumol hydrate (DH); and isoxanthohumol (IX)] from hops (Humulus lupulus) were tested for their antiproliferative activity in human breast cancer (MCF-7), colon cancer (HT-29) and(More)
BACKGROUND Allergy diagnosis in patients exposed to multiple pollen species is complex and misdiagnosis is often a cause for unsuccessful specific immunotherapy. OBJECTIVE We studied the sensitization profile of individual allergens (major, minor and pan-allergens) in pollen-sensitized patients in a region with high exposure to olive pollen by(More)
