An explicit construction of solutions of the modified Korteweg-de Vries equation given a solution of the (ordinary) Korteweg-de Vries equation is provided. Our theory is based on commutation methods (i.e., N = 1 super-symmetry) underlying Miura's transformation that links solutions of the two evolution equations. In connection with the extensively studied(More)
Structural equation modeling (SEM) is increasingly being chosen by researchers as a framework for gaining scientific insights from the quantitative analyses of data. New ideas and methods emerging from the study of causality, influences from the field of graphical modeling, and advances in statistics are expanding the rigor, capability, and even purpose of(More)
PURPOSE Nitric oxide is an important neurotransmitter mediating internal anal sphincter relaxation. Patients suffering from fissure-in-ano were treated with topical nitroglycerine. The clinical evidence for therapeutic adequacy was examined in a prospective, randomized study. METHODS The study included 35 patients with acute and chronic anal fissures. In(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is now a standard method for providing long-term enteral nutrition in patients who are unable to swallow. The aim of our study was to document clinical data that would allow prediction of a possible complicated clinical course. METHODS The study was carried out retrospectively. Clinical data of patients(More)
Glucosides of several Fusarium mycotoxins occur in naturally infected cereals and may contribute to an increased content to the total mycotoxin load of food and feed. The paper presents the results of a fermentation procedure to produce zearalenone-4O-beta-D-glucopyranoside from zearalenone using an engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain, expressing the(More)
PURPOSE Perianal endometriosis is an infrequent form of extragenital endometriosis and is usually situated in episiotomy scars. METHODS We report a rare case involving the external anal sphincter in a 24 year-old female. The precise anatomical location of the endometriotic lesion was confirmed using preoperative and intraoperative anal endosonography. (More)
species pose serious threats to the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems worldwide (Parmesan and Yohe 2003). Over the past 100 years, annual mean air temperatures in Glacier National Park, Montana, have increased twice as much as global temperatures, resulting in declining snowpack, increasing fi re frequency, altered hydrology, and loss of the(More)
The work at hand describes the production of the zearalenone (ZON) metabolites zearalenone-4-glucoside (ZON-4G), a-zearalenol-4-glucoside (oc-ZOL-4G) and ß-zearalenol-4-glucoside (ß-ZOL-4G). In a first step a genetically modified yeast strain, expressing theArabidopsis thaliana UDP-glu-cosyltransferase UGT73C6, was treated with ZON to produce ZON-4G. The(More)
