OBJECTIVE The etiopathogenesis of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and its subgroups - mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS) and TLE with antecedent febrile seizures (TLE-FS) - is poorly understood. It has been proposed that the water channel aquaporin-4 (AQP4) and the potassium channel Kir4.1 (KCNJ10 gene) act in concert to(More)
OBJECTIVE Neuroplasticity can be defined as the ability of the brain to adapt to environmental impacts. These adaptations include synapse formation and elimination, cortical reorganization, and neurogenesis. In epilepsy these mechanisms may become detrimental and contribute to disease progression. It has been proposed that Matrix Metalloproteinase 9(More)
Five methods for finding significant changes in proteome data have been used to analyze a two-dimensional gel electrophoresis data set. We used both univariate (ANOVA) and multivariate (Partial Least Squares with jackknife, Cross Model Validation, Power-PLS and CovProc) methods. The gels were taken from a time-series experiment exploring the changes in(More)
BACKGROUND Dairy products account for approximately 60% of the iodine intake in the Norwegian population. The iodine concentration in cow's milk varies considerably, depending on feeding practices, season, and amount of iodine and rapeseed products in cow fodder. The variation in iodine in milk affects the risk of iodine deficiency or excess in the(More)
Many Enterococcus faecalis strains display tolerance or resistance to many antibiotics, but genes that contribute to the resistance cannot be specified. The multiresistant E. faecalis V583, for which the complete genome sequence is available, survives and grows in media containing relatively high levels of chloramphenicol. No specific genes coding for(More)
