The predominant intermediate filament proteins of the goldfish visual pathway consist of neuronal and non-neuronal isoelectric variants (58 kd). We have isolated a cDNA clone for the glial intermediate filament protein (ON3) from an optic nerve expression library. The predicted amino acid sequence of this clone reveals that it codes for a type II keratin(More)
PURPOSE Despite international guidelines being available, not all gender clinics are able to face gender dysphoric (GD) youth population needs specifically. This is particularly true in Italy. Centers offering specialized support are relatively few and a commonly accepted Italian approach to GD youth has still not been defined. The aim of the present(More)
The intermediate filament protein composition in glial cells of goldfish optic nerve differs from that found in glial cells of the goldfish spinal cord and brain. Brain and spinal cord glial cells contain glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), whereas glial cells in the optic nerve contain ON3. The ON3 protein of the goldfish optic nerve was recently(More)
In efforts to determine the primary structure of intermediate filament proteins in the goldfish visual pathway, we isolated clones from a retinal lambda gt11 cDNA expression library that represent goldfish vimentin. We show that there are at least two forms of goldfish vimentin, designated as vimentin alpha and vimentin beta. RNase protection assays(More)
UNLABELLED Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a frequent mental disorder whose affected present high levels of stress and suffering. Diverse diagnostic criteria exist for this disorder. OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to establish which are the most sensitive symptoms to diagnose BPD at the present time together with the expectations and(More)
