1. INTROOIICI' ION Recently, encouraged by deregulation ultra-wideband (UWB) technology has attracted attention for use in communication and sensing applications in the commercial domain. In February 2002 the Federal Com~nunications Commission (FCC) in the United States conditionally waived unlicensed operation of the personal UWB products in the private(More)
BACKGROUND Optimal treatment strategies for restenosis of sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) have not been adequately addressed yet. METHODS AND RESULTS During the 3-year follow-up of 12 824 patients enrolled in the j-Cypher registry, 1456 lesions in 1298 patients underwent target-lesion revascularization (TLR). Excluding 362 lesions undergoing TLR for stent(More)
21 Muscle-restricted coiled-coil protein (MURC), also referred to as Cavin-4, is a member of 22 the cavin family that works cooperatively with caveolins in caveola formation and function. 23 Cavins are cytoplasmic proteins with coiled-coil domains and form heteromeric 24 complexes, which are recruited to caveolae in cells expressing caveolins. Among 25(More)
Emerging evidence suggests that caveolin-1 (Cav1) is associated with pulmonary arterial hypertension. MURC (also called Cavin-4) is a member of the cavin family, which regulates caveolar formation and functions together with caveolins. Here, we show that hypoxia increased Murc mRNA expression in the mouse lung, and that Murc-null mice exhibited attenuation(More)
Mutations in the PTRF/Cavin-1 gene cause congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 4 (CGL4) associated with myopathy. Additionally, long-QT syndrome and fatal cardiac arrhythmia are observed in patients with CGL4 who have homozygous PTRF/Cavin-1 mutations. PTRF/Cavin-1 deficiency shows reductions of caveolae and caveolin-3 (Cav3) protein expression in(More)
Background—Optimal treatment strategies for restenosis of sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) have not been adequately addressed yet. Methods and Results—During the 3-year follow-up of 12 824 patients enrolled in the j-Cypher registry, 1456 lesions in 1298 patients underwent target-lesion revascularization (TLR). Excluding 362 lesions undergoing TLR for stent(More)
We report a 30-year-old man presenting with medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) syndrome after an afternoon nap. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a right medial pontine tegmental infarction and right cerebellar infarctions. This patient was complicated with basilar impression detected on cervical X-ray and MRI. Three-dimensional CT angiography disclosed(More)
