Iterative prophylactic treatment by hematin in two cases of recurrent disabling acute intern1ittent porphyria (AIP)
Summary: Hematin is known as a useful drug in the treatment of acute intermittent porphyria (Al P) attacks. We have used it with success as an iterative prophylactic treatment in two cases of AIP with recurrent disabling ...
Synarthrophyton papillatum sp. nov.: a new species of non-geniculate coralline algae (Rhodophyta, Corallinales, Hapalidiaceae) from South Africa and Namibia
Polychaete worm tubes within the mid to lower intertidal zone along the South African west coast were frequently observed to be overgrown by a minutely papillate species of encrusting coralline algae. Analysis of the ...
The role of ground water in Sub-Saharan Africa
Although water resources managers speak of a water crisis in Africa, the management of ground water has to date not featured strongly in national and regional African water agendas. Examination of the physical environment of ...
Leptophytum foveatum Chamberlain & Keats (Rhodophyta, Corallinales) retaliates against overgrowth by other encrusting algae
The encrusting coralline alga, Leptophytum foveatum, is the most abundant crustose alga in the lower eulittoral zone at Yzerfontein and other exposed sites on the West Coast of South Africa. The surface of this species is ...

A novel cell-based binding assay system reconstituting interaction between SARS-CoV S protein and its cellular receptor
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), a life-threatening disease, is caused by the newly identified virus SARS coronavirus (SARSCoV). In order to study the spike (S) protein of this highly contagious virus, we established ...
Identification and characterization of the Trichoplusia ni Single Capsid Nuclear Polyhedrosis Virus p10 gene
(Springer Verlag, 2000)
The p10 gene was identified and characterized from the Trichoplusia ni single capsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus (TniSNPV). The p10 open reading frame (ORF) sequence was identified following sequencing of the ends of the ...
The variable N-terminal region of DDX5 contains structural elements and auto-inhibits its interaction with NS5B of hepatitis C virus
(Portland Press, 2012)
RNA helicases of the DEAD (Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp)-box family of proteins are involved in many aspects of RNA metabolism from transcription to RNA decay, but most of them have also been shown to be multifunctional. The DEAD-box ...
Simulation of Y-chromosomal haplotype data
The non-recombining nature of the Y-chromosome determines the non-independence of alleles between loci. The evolution of short tandem repeat (STR) loci in the Y-chromosome is the result of different factors such as ...
The “four sigma” limit for significant periodicities
(Springer Verlag, 2010)
Most of the pulsations which have been observed in sdB stars have very low amplitudes. Detection of modes from photometric observations is usually performed by noting the most prominent peaks in a periodogram or, ...
