OBJECTIVE To define changes in cortical function in persons inheriting familial Alzheimer disease (FAD) mutations before the onset of cognitive decline. METHODS Twenty-six subjects with a family history of FAD were divided into 2 subgroups according to genotype (FAD mutation carriers, n = 15; FAD noncarriers, n = 11). Subjects were given standardized(More)
The first step in oral absorption of many medically important peptide-based drugs is mediated by an intestinal proton-dependent peptide transporter. This transporter facilitates the oral absorption of beta-lactam antibiotics and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors from the intestine into enterocytes lining the luminal wall. A monoclonal antibody that(More)
PURPOSE To characterize the functional consequences of disease-associated mutations in the CNGB3 (B3) subunit of human cone photoreceptor cyclic nucleotide-gated channels in order to gain insight into disease mechanisms. METHODS Three separate disease-associated mutations were generated in CNGB3: F525N, R403Q, and T383fsX. These mutant subunits were then(More)
Cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) channels are critical components of the vertebrate visual transduction cascade involved in converting light-induced changes in intracellular cGMP concentrations into electrical signals that can be interpreted by the brain as visual information. To characterize regulatory mechanisms capable of altering the apparent ligand(More)
We use K(L)'s in the 100-200 GeV energy range to produce 147 candidate events of the axial vector pair K1(1270)-K1(1400) in the nuclear Coulomb field of a Pb target and determine the radiative widths Gamma(K1(1400)-->K0+gamma)=280.8+/-23.2(stat)+/-40.4(syst) keV and Gamma(K1(1270)-->K0+gamma)=73.2+/-6.1(stat)+/-28.3(syst) keV. These first measurements(More)

Fatigue is highly associated with poor health-related quality of life, disability and depression in newly-diagnosed patients with inflammatory bowel disease, independent of disease activity. Circadian clock genes and risk of fatal prostate cancer. [PubMed-in process] Free PMC Article Use of antidepressants and association with elective termination of(More)
We observe 441 K(L)-->e(+)e(-)e(+)e(-) candidate events with a background of 4.2 events and measure B(K(L)-->e(+)e(-)e(+)e(-)) = [3.72+/-0.18(stat)+/-0.23(syst)]x10(-8) in the KTeV/E799II experiment at Fermilab. Using the distribution of the angle between the planes of the e(+)e(-) pairs, we measure the CP parameters beta(CP) =(More)
The genes of the major histocompatibility complex were first known for the part they played in transplant rejection. Recently, however, it has become clear that the products of that region have an important part to play in the control of the immune response, through their effects both on cooperative and on aggressive interactions between cells. It is now(More)
