Auditory neuropathy affects the normal synchronous activity in the auditory nerve, without affecting the amplification function in the inner ear. Patients with auditory neuropathy often complain that they can hear sounds, but cannot understand speech. Here we report psychophysical tests indicating that these patients' poor speech recognition is due to a(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the cause/s of muscle fatigue experienced during a half-iron distance triathlon. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We recruited 25 trained triathletes (36±7 yr; 75.1±9.8 kg) for the study. Before and just after the race, jump height and leg muscle power output were measured during a countermovement jump on a force platform to(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the changes in body mass and myoglobinuria concentration in recreational runners during a marathon in a warm environment, and the relation of these changes to muscle fatigue. We recruited 138 amateur runners (114 men and 24 women) for the study. Before the race, leg muscle power output was measured during a(More)
The copper resistance (Cur) genes encoded on pXV10A, a 190-kb plasmid in Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria XV10, were isolated on a 44-kb cosmid clone designated pCuR1. Tn5 mutagenesis of pCuR1 indicated that a 4.0-kb region was required for copper resistance. Three restriction fragments located within the 4.0-kb region demonstrated high specificity(More)
Prostate secretory protein of 94 amino acids (PSP94) has shown the potential to be a diagnostic biomarker and a therapeutic agent for prostate cancer. Primates have been the main animal models for studying the biology of this molecule. We have cloned and analyzed the cDNA and promoter region of PSP94 from baboon (Papio anubis). Sequence divergence among(More)
PSP94 is a potential biomarker for evaluating patients with prostate carcinoma. We have systematically studied the epitope structure of PSP94 by using a polyclonal antibody against human PSP94. Results of peptide mapping and ELISA tests of dose response to rabbit antiserum against human PSP94 protein showed that only the N-terminal peptides (N30 and M23)(More)
