Low-density membrane fragments (domains) were separated from the bulk of plasma membranes of human embryonic kidney (HEK)293 cells expressing a delta-opioid (DOP) receptor-Gi1alpha fusion protein by drastic homogenization and flotation on equilibrium sucrose density gradients. The functional activity of trimeric G proteins and capacity of the DOP receptor(More)
Many extracellular signals are at the cell surface received by specific receptors, which upon activation transduce information to the appropriate cellular effector molecules via trimeric G proteins. The G protein-mediated cascades ultimately lead to the highly refined regulation of systems such as sensory perception, cell growth, and hormonal regulation.(More)
Iloprost (IP) stimulation (1 microM, 2 h) of Flag-epitope-tagged human IP prostanoid receptor (FhIPR) expressed in HEK293 cells resulted in specific decrease of endogenous G(s)alpha protein in detergent-insensitive, caveolin-enriched, membrane domains (DIMs). Receptor protein FhIPR, caveolin, G(i)alpha and GPI-linked, domain markers CD55 and CD59 were(More)
In 1977-1990 a total of 2,554 patients with rhegmatogenic retinal detachment were operated by the cryosurgical method, using silicone episcleral implants. The total number of patients comprosed 36 (1.4%) where the authors detected during the preoperative examination retinal detachment, usually in an initial stage, on the other eye. In 30 patients the(More)
PURPOSE OF THE INVESTIGATION The aim of study was to determine the efficacy of radioguided occult lesion localisation (ROLL) for non-palpable invasive breast cancer combined with sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) and to compare the amount of tissue excised by radioguided navigation versus the hook-wire technique. METHODS We injected 45 MBq of(More)
In the retinal nerve fiber layer diffuse and localized defects can be seen in glaucoma. Photographs made with a green filter on black and white high contrast film allow to follow these alterations. This method will be used together with colour photographs for the statement of intra- and interobserver agreement.
PURPOSE To determine whether retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) photographs can predict future glaucoma visual field damage. METHODS In a prospective study 158 red free photographs of the RNFL were made from November 1994 to June 1995. 28 eyes of 19 patients with ocular hypertension (repeated intraocular pressure over 21 mmHg and normal visual(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to investigate the changes of histopathological and immunohistochemical parameters of breast tissue among the HRT users. DESIGN Prospective, pilot study.

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of surgery of idiopathic macular holes (IMH) using or not using autologous thrombocyte concentrates (ATC). METHOD Fifty eyes with IMH, stage 2-4, were divided into two groups. Group 1 comprised 27 eyes with an average persistence of complaints of 12 months where pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and tamponade with 16% C3F8 were(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to evaluate the feasibility of radio guided occult lesion localization (ROLL) in the cases of nonpalpable breast cancers with sentinel lymph node biopsy.
