The differentially methylated domain (DMD) of the mouse H19 gene is a methylation-sensitive insulator that blocks access of the Igf2 gene to shared enhancers on the maternal allele and inactivates H19 expression on the methylated paternal allele. By analyzing H19 DMD deletion alleles H19DeltaDMD and H19Delta3.8kb-5'H19 in pre- and postimplantation embryos,(More)
Computational protein structure prediction is very important for many applications in bioinformatics. In the process of predicting protein structures, it is essential to accurately assess the quality of generated models. Although many single-model quality assessment (QA) methods have been developed, their accuracy is not high enough for most real(More)
We describe an infant male of Cambodian background who has typical craniofacial features of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) embryopathy and a complex congenital heart defect (CHD) (double outlet right ventricle, mitral atresia, pulmonic stenosis, and total anomalous pulmonary venous return). Together with four case reports and the 20 patients included in two(More)
Extracellular matrices (ECM) are commonly used to repair congenital heart defects; however, there is a lack of literature pertaining to outcomes with ECM use in high-pressure conditions. Between 2011 and 2014, a total of 202 patients underwent congenital heart disease repair using the ECM placed in a systemic pressure condition. The operative sites(More)
Although the true incidence of postoperative dysphagia after cardiac surgery is unknown, it has been reported to occur in 3 to 21.6 per cent of patients. Historically, dysphagia has been associated with increased surgical complications and prolonged hospital stay. This study aimed to evaluate the costs and outcomes associated with dysphagia after cardiac(More)
