P-57 is a novel calmodulin-binding protein which has recently been isolated from bovine cerebral cortex (Andreasen, T. J., Luetje, C. W., Heideman, W., and Storm, D. R. (1983) Biochemistry 22, 4615-4618). In contrast to all other calmodulin-binding proteins characterized thus far, P-57 has equivalent or higher affinity for calmodulin in the absence of free(More)
A new calmodulin (CaM) binding protein, designated P-57, has been purified to apparent homogeneity from bovine cerebral cortex membranes. In contrast to other calmodulin binding proteins, P-57 has higher affinity for calmodulin in the absence of bound Ca2+ than in its presence. The protein was purified by DEAE-Sephacel chromatography and two CaM-Sepharose(More)
LEARNING OBJECTIVES After studying the article, the participant should be able to: 1. Describe the most common bacteriology of necrotizing fasciitis and purpura fulminans. 2. Describe the "finger test" in the diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis. 3. Discuss the three presentation patterns of necrotizing fasciitis. 4. Discuss the pathophysiology of acute(More)
Prostaglandin E (PGE) receptor density in hepatic plasma membranes can be down-regulated by in vivo exposure to the 16,16-dimethyl analog of PGE2, and this is associated with desensitization of PGE-sensitive adenylate cyclase. These studies examined adenylate cyclase response to other agonists in membranes whose PGE receptor density was 51% decreased and(More)
Bordetella pertussis produces an extracellular adenylate cyclase activity that is present in the culture medium of exponentially growing cells. We have determined that calmodulin (CaM) stimulates this enzyme both in the presence and in the absence of free Ca2+. In the presence of 90 micron Ca2+ half-maximal stimulation of the enzyme occurred at 95 pM(More)
The characteristics of fatty acid inhibition of acetylcholine receptor function were examined in membrane vesicles prepared from Torpedo californica electroplax. Inhibition of the carbamylcholine-induced increase in sodium ion permeability was correlated with the bulk melting point of exogenously incorporated fatty acids. Above its melting temperature, a(More)
We investigated the treatment effect of psychodynamic short-term therapy complemented with bodywork on patients who presented with physical illness at the Research Clinic for Holistic Medicine in Copenhagen. Psychodynamic short-term therapy was complemented with bodywork (Marion Rosen) to help patients confront old emotional pain from childhood trauma(s).(More)
At the Research Clinic for Holistic Medicine in Copenhagen, 43 patients who presented with low or very low self-esteem were treated with psychodynamic short-term therapy complemented with bodywork. They received an average of 20 sessions at a cost of 1,600 EURO. The bodywork helped the patients to confront old emotional pain from childhood trauma repressed(More)
We had a success rate of treating low, self-assessed, global quality of life (measured by QOL1: How would you assess the quality of your life now?) with clinical holistic medicine of 56.4% (95% CI: 42.3-69.7%) and calculated from this the Number Needed to Treat (NNT) as 1.43-2.36. We found that during treatment, (in average 20 sessions of psychodynamic(More)
