Superficial soil and grass samples from 13 locations affected by several anthropogenic sources (mining, metal factory, traffic emissions) were collected in Gipuzkoa, northern Spain. The more labile metal fractions, the mobile (extracted by 0.01 mol l(-1) CaCl(2)) and the mobilisable (extracted by 0.005 mol l(-1) DTPA), were evaluated using a short(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this paper is to analyse and quantify the effects exerted on summer mortality by extremes of heat, particularly among persons aged 65-74 and 75 years and over, groups in which mortality is higher. METHODS The study included the period from 1 January 1986 to 31 December 1997, for all people aged over 65 years resident in Madrid,(More)
Recent studies demonstrate that combinations of androgens and progestagens are highly effective in the suppression of spermatogenesis in normal volunteers. To test whether progestagen and androgen delivery systems designed to produce steady serum levels will be as effective as other androgen plus progestagen combinations, we compared Norplant II and(More)
Seventeen Middle Pleistocene crania from the Sima de los Huesos site (Atapuerca, Spain) are analyzed, including seven new specimens. This sample makes it possible to thoroughly characterize a Middle Pleistocene hominin paleodeme and to address hypotheses about the origin and evolution of the Neandertals. Using a variety of techniques, the hominin-bearing(More)
We report the characterization of N-linked oligosaccharides on six foreign glycoproteins secreted from the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris. These proteins included: a bacterial enzyme, Bacillus licheniformis alpha-amylase; three fungal enzymes, Saccharomyces cerevisiae invertase, Penicillium minioluteum dextranase, and Mucor pusillus aspartic protease;(More)
25 kidney donors who had undergone nephrectomy 1-11 years ago, 35 patients followed up for 13 years after poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis, and 44 controls were investigated for their capacity to increase their glomerular filtration rate after an acute oral load of 100-150 g of protein. Their mean baseline creatinine clearances (Ccrl, ml/min +/- SEM)(More)
Antigen charge is an important factor in the pathogenesis of experimental immune complex glomerulonephritis. Its potential role in man was investigated in post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis, a disease where the causative agent is known. Cationic, extracellular streptococcal antigens were detected in 8 of 18 renal biopsies from patients with acute(More)
Protein p54, one of the most antigenic structural African swine fever virus (ASFV) proteins, has been localized by immuno-electron microscopy in the replication factories of infected cells, mainly associated with membranes and immature virus particles. Attempts to inactivate the p54 gene from ASFV by targeted insertion of beta-galactosidase selection marker(More)
Using anion-exchange chromatography the catalyticdomain of endoglucanase 1 (Cel7B) from Trichoderma reesei was resolved in multiple fractions with different isoelectric points, presumably related to different glycoforms of the enzyme. The protein fractions were analysed using lectins and electrospray MS. Isolated N-glycans were analysed by(More)
