Aryl sulfotransferase (AST) IV (also named tyrosine-ester sulfotransferase and ST1A1) is a major phenol sulfotransferase in the rat, and it catalyzes the sulfation of many drugs, carcinogens, and other xenobiotics that contain phenol, benzylic alcohol, N-hydroxy arylamine, and oxime functional groups. Previous work discovered a stereospecificity of AST IV(More)
Four cases of plastic bowing of the ribs are presented. In three patients with Werdnig-Hoffman disease, plastic curvatures were associated with chronic pneumonia and atelectasis. We postulate that intrapulmonary retractive forces can deform ribs thinned by muscular atrophy. In turn, thoracic collapse can perpetuate lobar and segmental atelectasis. In one(More)
