The molecular basis of severe type I factor (F)VII deficiency was investigated in two Algerian patients. One patient, a 13-year-old-girl who has suffered from severe bleeding since birth, was homozygous for a 7-bp deletion (nt 7774-7780) and a 251-bp insertion (nt 7773-7781) of mitochondrial origin, in IVS 4 acceptor splice site. The other patient, an(More)
We sought to determine the cerebral metabolic fate of glucose during sound stimulation in near-term fetal sheep. Blood oxygen content was significantly decreased by 6-7% during sound stimulation. The cerebral glucose:oxygen quotient increased from 0.88 +/- 0.08 to 1.13 +/- 0.12 (mean +/- S.E.M., P < 0.01). This is consistent with the phenomenon of(More)
