Two peptides, RAWVAWR-NH2 and IVSDGNGMNAWVAWR-NH2, derived from human and chicken lysozyme, respectively, exhibit antimicrobial activity. A comparison between the L-RAWVAWR, D-RAWVAWR, and the longer peptide has been carried out in membrane mimetic conditions to better understand how their interaction with lipid and detergent systems relates to the reported(More)
The mechanisms of hypoxic injury to the developing human brain are poorly understood, despite being a major cause of chronic neurodevelopmental impairments. Recent work in the invertebrate Caenorhabditis elegans has shown that hypoxia causes discrete axon pathfinding errors in certain interneurons and motorneurons. However, it is unknown whether(More)
Fetal ovarian cysts are the most common abdominal cysts observed in the female fetus but may be mistaken for genitourinary cysts, gastrointestinal cysts, lymphangiomas, or fetus in fetu. Ultrasonography (US) is the imaging modality of choice for fetal assessment, and magnetic resonance imaging is a useful problem-solving tool when uncertainty remains after(More)
To determine test characteristics of CT urography for detecting bladder cancer in patients with hematuria and those undergoing surveillance, and to analyze reasons for false-positive and false-negative results. A HIPAA-compliant, IRB-approved retrospective review of reports from 1623 CT urograms between 10/2010 and 12/31/2013 was performed. 710 examinations(More)
