Differentiation of skeletal muscle is affected in myotonic dystrophy (DM) patients. Analysis of cultured myoblasts from DM patients shows that DM myoblasts lose the capability to withdraw from the cell cycle during differentiation. Our data demonstrate that the expression and activity of the proteins responsible for cell cycle withdrawal are altered in DM(More)
Two new mutations in the gene encoding cytoplasmic Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD1) have been discovered in patients with familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (FALS). These mutations result in the truncation of most of the polypeptide segment encoded by exon 5, one by the formation of a stop codon in codon 126 (L126Z) and the other by inducing(More)
This paper proposes a new theory addressing the neural mechanism of declarative memory consolidation and retrieval. The premise of the theory is that the cortex is responsible for the storage of declarative memory while the medial temporal lobe is responsible for the consolidation and retrieval of declarative memory. The theory suggests that the medial(More)
