BACKGROUND: Although ferns are often known under collective names in Norway, e.g. blom, a substantial number of vernacular names for individual fern species are known, in particular for useful or poisonous taxa. In the past, the rhizomes (Norwegian: moldfôr) of selected species were collected for fodder. Only scattered records of such use are available from southern Norway, and the tradition's core area is found in the two North Norwegian counties of Nordland and Troms, in accordance with the longer winters encountered in the north, frequently leading to fodder shortage in early spring...

BACKGROUND: Despite the significant developments made in the field of diagnosis and treatment modalities of cancer during the last two decades, it still remains one of the most life threatening diseases killing 8.2 million people annually across the globe. It has been well-established that development of chemoresistance in cancer cells is the major cause of failure of chemotherapeutic agents in clinic. Most of the chemotherapeutic agents currently being used activate NF-κB and NF-κB regulated gene products in cancer cells and induce drug resistance...

The frequency noise of an optical frequency comb is routinely measured through the hetherodyne beat of one comb tooth against a stable continuous-wave laser. After frequency-to-voltage conversion, the beatnote is sent to a spectrum analyzer to retrive the power spectral density of the frequency noise. Because narrow-linewidth continuous-wave lasers are available only at certain wavelengths, heterodyning the comb tooth can be challenging. We present a new technique for direct characterization of the frequency noise of an optical frequency comb, requiring no supplementary reference lasers and easily applicable in all spectral regions from the terahertz to the ultraviolet...

Currently, living related donor renal transplantation is the most common source for transplantation in Algeria. To develop cadaveric organ donation, the Blida Transplantation Team (BTT) started a local education program and campaign. On March 31, 2010, we procured and transplanted 2 kidneys from a 17-year-old brain-dead donor. The BTT is conscious that the local initiative must be followed nationally, with the help of the health authorities. There is an urgent need to promote brain-dead donors and cadaveric organ retriveal throughout the country...

JAK2 (Janus kinase-2) is expressed in a wide variety of cells including tumor cells and contributes to the proliferation and survival of those cells. The gain of function mutation (V617F)JAK2 mutant is found in the majority of myeloproliferative diseases. Cell proliferation depends on the availability of amino acids. Concentrative cellular amino acid uptake is in part accomplished by Na(+) coupled amino acid transport through SLC6A19 (B(0)AT). The present study thus explored whether JAK2 activates SLC6A19. To this end, SLC6A19 was expressed in Xenopus oocytes with or without wild type JAK2, (V617F)JAK2 or inactive (K882E)JAK2 and electrogenic amino acid transport determined by dual electrode voltage clamp...

Alpha event-related desynchronization (ERD) and synchronization are known to reflect brain activation and inhibition, respectively. Alpha phase locking seems to reflect the timing in the cortical process. In a previous study, lower alpha ERD was related to working memory in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) patients than in controls during the retention and retrival phases, but not in the encoding phase. However, memory deficits in OCD patients are known to be related to executive failure during the encoding phase...

Putative control of encoding and retrieval processes have been linked to communication between the lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC) and the hippocampus. Moreover, correlations between the LPFC (e.g., MFG) and hippocampus have predicted individuals' ability to inhibit memory retrieval. Anatomically, differences in volume of the hippocampus have been related to changes in long-term episodic memories. Although the relationship between these ideas is clear, few studies have examined the association of how anatomy may affect the role of control over brain regions involved in distint memory processes...

The objective of this study is to assess the secretory pattern of GH after Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) or day-curve (DC), in relation with IGF-I and to evaluate the influence of therapy on OGTT. A retrospective analysis in 279 OGTTs performed in 93 acromegalic patients in our unit from January 1988 to December 2005, in 77 patients also DC data were retrived. GH concentration was evaluated by 3 different systems (RIA, IRMA and chemiluminescence assays), and IGF-I by two RIAs. About 12% of OGTT samples were discordant with the baseline, while discordance between nadir and 120th minute was much lower (5%), with all discordant values, except one, near the cut-off lines...
