Five experiments present the first piece of evidence from online processing (self-paced reading and eyetracking) that omitting the middle verb in a double center embedding yields an illusion of grammaticality in English, but not in German. One commonly accepted explanation for the English illusion – based on data from offline acceptability ratings – is the… (More)
BACKGROUND For heterogeneous tissues, such as blood, measurements of gene expression are confounded by relative proportions of cell types involved. Conclusions have to rely on estimation of gene expression signals for homogeneous cell populations, e.g. by applying micro-dissection, fluorescence activated cell sorting, or in-silico deconfounding. We studied… (More)
PURPOSE High-density lipoproteins (HDL) have long been implicated in the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). However, conflicting results have been reported with regard to the associations of AMD with HDL-cholesterol levels. The present study is the first to assess HDL composition and metrics of HDL function in patients with exudative… (More)
BACKGROUND Pharmacologic pre- and postconditioning with sevoflurane compared with total IV anesthesia in patients undergoing liver surgery reduced complication rates as shown in 2 recent randomized controlled trials. However, the potential health economic consequences of these different anesthesia regimens have not yet been assessed. METHODS An expostcost… (More)
Proteomics have extended the list of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) associated proteins to about 90. One of the major issues of global protein characterization is establishing specificity of association as opposed to contamination, a fact which has never been addressed for isolated HDL. We have developed a refined purification strategy to isolate HDL by… (More)

The influence of the finite measuring spot diameter on the measured value of the mean longitudinal piezoelectric coefficient of 1-3-composites was investigated using the Finite-Element-Method (FEM) and a subsequent analysis. The results are compared with the real areic distribution of the local longitudinal piezoelectric coefficient and with an analytical… (More)
