The complete nucleotide sequence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome VI (270 kb) has revealed that it contains 129 predicted or known genes (300 bp or longer). Thirty-seven (28%) of which have been identified previously. Among the 92 novel genes, 39 are highly homologous to previously identified genes. Local sequence motifs were compared to active ARS(More)
A high-performance liquid chromatographic method to determine (Me)Arg-Lys-Pro-Trp-tert-Leu-Leu (NT-2) with neurotensin (NT) activity in rat plasma was developed and a pharmacokinetic study was performed in rats. Quantitative analysis with high reproducibility was achieved for NT-2 over the concentration range of 1.14-500 ng/ml.(More)
A new class of 4-acetamidopiperidine derivatives has been synthesized and investigated for human muscarinic receptor subtype selectivity. Introduction of a hydrocarbon chain of appropriate length into the piperidine nitrogen of the racemic N-(piperidin-4-yl)-2-cyclobutyl-2-hydroxy-2-phenylacetamide platform conferred up to 70-fold selectivity for human(More)
Twenty-two patients with cirrhosis and minute hepatocellular carcinoma less than 3 cm in diameter were followed for periods of 6-37 mo without specific treatment. The survival curve drawn by the Kaplan-Meier method showed a 1-yr survival of 90.7%, a 2-yr survival of 55.0%, and a 3-yr survival of 12.8%. The ultrasonic patterns of these masses in the liver(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) images of the liver were used to study 43 patients with relatively small hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) and 36 with other hepatic mass lesions. In 27 HCC patients, histologic findings were available. All focal lesions detectable by CT without contrast media were delineated with greater contrast by MR imaging. The rate of detection(More)
A total of 96 patients with gallbladder carcinoma in whom direct cholangiography clearly opacified the pancreaticobiliary ductal union and the common channel, and 65 patients with an anomalous union of these two duct systems at a distance greater than 15 mm from the papilla of Vater (normally less than 4.6 +/- 2.2 mm, mean +/- SD) were studied. It was found(More)
Thirty patients from 15 to 69 years of age with congenital cystic dilatation of the common bile duct were studied. The diagnosis was made by intravenous cholangiography in 70% of the patients and by percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography and/or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatiography in the entire group. Cystic dilatation was also noted in the(More)
Infectious virus could no longer be detected in the trigeminal ganglia removed from mice 25 days after infection with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) by the lip route. When the ganglia were cultured in vitro for 1 or 2 days, infectious HSV-1 was again detected in the ganglia, indicating the reactivation of latent HSV-1. The effect of indomethacin on(More)
Chick embryo has been used as a model system for evaluating the metastatic potential of tumor cells. We have previously demonstrated that expression of the tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase-I (TIMP-I) gene can suppress liver colonization of tumor cels in chick embryo, probably by inhibiting the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) produced(More)
