A model for a lipid membrane stabilized by C-H center dot center dot center dot X bonds: The crystal structure of the paraffinic ylide trimethylammonio n-hexadecylsulfonamidate CH3(CH2)(15)SO2N(-)N(+)Me-3

The crystal structure of trimethylammonio n-hexadecylsulfonamidate contains antiparallel monolayers stabilized by strong C-(HO)-O-... bonds ((CO)-O-... 3.22 Angstrom). There are also significant C-(HX)-X-... (X = N, O) bonds linking adjacent layers. The structure suggests that nitrogen ylides have potential as amphoteric surfactants. The crystallography of paraffinic monolayers is discussed and the ...

A multilayer detector for PET based on APD arrays and continuous crystal elements

Scintillation detectors developed for PET traditionally uses relatively thick crystals (to ensure good efficiency), which are coupled to photomultiplier tubes. The crystals typically measure between 10 and 30mm thick Detectors also require good spatial resolution so the scintillator is normally made up of a densely packed array of long thin crystals. In our design the detection crystal is divided into ...

A Multimodality Cross-Validation Study of Cardiac Perfusion Using MR and CT

Modern advances in magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomography (CT) perfusion imaging techniques have developed methods for myocardial perfusion assessment. However, individual imaging techniques present limitations that are possible to be surpassed by a multimodality cross-validation of perfusion imaging and analysis. We calculated the absolute myocardial blood flow (MBF) in MR using ...

A neuregulin 1 variant associated with abnormal cortical function and psychotic symptoms

NRG1, encoding neuregulin 1, is a susceptibility gene for schizophrenia, but no functional mutation causally related to the disorder has yet been identified. Here we investigate the effects of a variant in the human NRG1 promoter region in subjects at high risk of schizophrenia. We show that this variant is associated with (i) decreased activation of frontal and temporal lobe regions, (ii) increased ...

A novel mammalian receptor for the evolutionarily conserved type II GnRH

Mammalian gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH I: pGlu-His-TrpSer-Tyr-Gly-Leu-Arg-Pro-Gly-NH2) stimulates pituitary gonadotropin secretion, which in turn stimulates the gonads. Whereas a hypothalamic form of GnRH of variable structure (designated type I) had been shown to regulate reproduction through a cognate type I receptor, it has recently become evident that most vertebrates have one or two other ...

A Parcellation Scheme for Human Left Lateral Parietal Cortex

The parietal lobe has long been viewed as a collection of architectonic and functional subdivisions. Though much parietal research has focused on mechanisms of visuospatial attention and control-related processes, more recent functional neuroimaging studies of memory retrieval have reported greater activity in left lateral parietal cortex (LLPC) when items are correctly identified as previously studied ...

A pilot study of brain tumour growth between radiotherapy planning and delivery

Aims: Delays between surgery and the delivery of radiotherapy may allow brain tumours to grow beyond the planned radiotherapy fields and therefore reduce the effectiveness of radiotherapy. This pilot study aimed to ascertain whether significant growth of brain tumours occurs between post-biopsy imaging and the start of radiotherapy. Materials and methods: Two estimates of tumour volume were obtained ...

A practical assessment of magnetic resonance diffusion-perfusion mismatch in acute stroke: observer variation and outcome

MR diffusion/perfusion mismatch may help identify patients for acute stroke treatment, but mixed results from clinical trials suggest that further evaluation of the mismatch concept is required. To work effectively, mismatch should predict prognosis on arrival at hospital. We assessed mismatch duration and associations with functional outcome in acute stroke. We recruited consecutive patients with ...

A Probabilistic model-based approach to consistent white matter tract segmentation

Since the invention of diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI), currently the only established method for studying white matter connectivity in a clinical environment, there has been a great deal of interest in the effects of various pathologies on the connectivity of the brain. As methods for ill vivo tractography have been developed, it has become possible to track and segment specific white ...
