Studies on the validation of minimum data sets from international information standards have drawn the attention of the academic community to the identification of necessary requirements for the development of Electronic Health Records (EHRs). The primary motivation of such studies is the development of systems using archetypes. The aim of this study was to validate the minimum data set that should be used when constructing an archetyped EHR for prenatal care applications in telehealth. In order to achieve this, a data validation tool was built and used by nine expert obstetricians...

The phenylacetamide 1 represents the archtypical glucokinase activator (GKA) in which only the R-isomer is active. In order to probe whether the chiral center could be replaced, we prepared a series of olefins 2 and show in the present work that these compounds represent a new class of GKAs. Surprisingly, the SAR of the new series paralleled that of the saturated derivatives with the exception that there was greater tolerance for larger alkyl and cycloalkyl groups at R(2) region in comparison to the phenylacetamides...

CD spectra of a tandem 27-mer repeat polypeptide, Gln-Pro-His-Gln-Pro-Leu-Gln-Pro-His-Gln-Pro-Leu-Gln-Pro-Met-(Gln-Pro-Leu)4, from bovine amelogenin synthesized by standard solid-phase synthesis manifests an archtypical CD pattern of a beta-spiral structure in phosphate buffer at pH 5.2 and trifluoroethanol (TFE), CF3OH. beta-spiral structure is unique to a class of diverse proteins including amelogenins conferring unusual physicochemical properties.

For over 20 years, numerous investigations have focused on elucidating the function of the peripheral benzodiazepine receptor (PBR). This relatively small protein (18kDa) arouses great interest because of its association with numerous biological functions, including the regulation of cellular proliferation, immunomodulation, porphyrin transport and heme biosynthesis, anion transport, regulation of steroidogenesis and apoptosis. Although the receptor was first identified as a binding site for the benzodiazepine, diazepam, in peripheral organ systems, the PBR was subsequently found to be distinct from the central benzodiazepine receptor (CBR) in terms of its pharmacological profile, structure, subcellular localization, tissue distribution and physiological functions...

Atherosclerosis is the major cause of mortality in the population of the, so called, developed countries of western culture. Since the first half of this century, hypercholesterolemia was the hallmark for the investigation of atherosclerosis, improving the level of knowledge about the complex metabolism of lipoproteins. The occurrence of atherosclerosis in normolipidaemic subjects, and the relationship between this illness, other dysmetabolic features and certain infectious agents, led to the reformulation, in the last decade, of the pathophysiological archtypes, atherosclerosis was included in the group of the inflammatory processes...

The glycolytic protein glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) appeared to be an archtypical protein of limited excitement. However, independent studies from a number of different laboratories reported a variety of diverse biological properties of the GAPDH protein. As a membrane protein, GAPDH functions in endocytosis; in the cytoplasm, it is involved in the translational control of gene expression; in the nucleus, it functions in nuclear tRNA export, in DNA replication, and in DNA repair. The intracellular localization of GAPDH may be dependent on the proliferative state of the cell...

The high-affinity receptor for immunoglobulin E, Fc epsilon RI, serves as an archtype for multisubunit immunoreceptors that mediate cell activation in response to foreign antigens. Antigen-mediated aggregation of this receptor at the surface of mast cells and basophils initiates a biochemical cascade that uses nonreceptor tyrosine kinases as key participants in the earliest steps of this signal transduction process. Cross-linking of Fc epsilon RI with ligands of well-defined structure and valency has revealed detailed information about the fundamental requirements for functionally active receptor aggregates...

Homeopathy is presented as a modality of potential usefulness in the treatment of borderline patients refractory to psychoanalytic work. In these instances a minimally adequate centre of consciousness did not solidify from the identity with the psychoid stratum. In the view of Alchemy, this failure of the mind to separate from the unio naturalis or massa confusa could be remedied by a medicamentum spagyricum, an archtypal essence acting according to the simile principle, which was to be extracted from various substances...
