A number of mouse models for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) have been genetically engineered to recapitulate the severity of human SMA by using a targeted null mutation at the mouse Smn1 locus coupled with the transgenic addition of varying copy numbers of human SMN2 genes. Although this approach has been useful in modeling severe SMA and very mild SMA, a(More)
We attempted to define the substances that contribute to the characteristic "uremic breath" of patients with end-stage renal disease. Breath samples from nine patients underwent direct analysis before and after hemodialysis with use of gas chromatography and confirmation by mass spectrometry, and indirectly assessment by an organoleptic panel.(More)
Subsequent to an autopsy of a tuberculotic cadaver, a pathology resident presented with a painless paronychia and axillary adenopathy after surgical incision and broad-spectrum antibiotics had failed to improve his condition. Demonstration by culture of Mycobacterium tuberculosis var hominis, positive smears, and findings of acid-fast organisms in a skin(More)
There is growing interest in utilizing replicating oncolytic viruses as cancer therapeutics agents. The effectiveness of myxoma virus-induced oncolysis was evaluated in two feline cancer cell cultures. Although myxoma virus is a rabbit-specific pathogen, protein expression driven by myxoma virus and production of infectious viral particles were detected.(More)
While rapamycin treatment has been reported to have a putatively negative effect on glucose homeostasis in mammals, it has not been tested in polygenic models of type 2 diabetes. One such mouse model, NONcNZO10/LtJ, was treated chronically with rapamycin (14 ppm encapsulated in diet) and monitored for the development of diabetes. As expected, rapamycin(More)
A spontaneous mutation termed bilateral wasting kidneys (bwk) was identified in a colony of NONcNZO recombinant inbred mice. These mice exhibit a rapid increase of urinary albumin at an early age associated with glomerulosclerosis, interstitial nephritis, and tubular atrophy. The mutation was mapped to a location on chromosome 1 containing the Col4a3 and(More)
