Guangzhou, China. In J Diabetes Res, 2012
HIBADH, and TMBIM4 were identified from the T2DM-control study, and BCAT1, BMP2K, CSRNP2, MYNN, NCKAP5L, SAP30BP, SLC35B4, SP1, BAP1, GRB14, HSP90AB1, ITGA5, and TOMM5 were identified from the obesity-control study.
Electric bicycles as a new active transportation modality to promote health.
Lausanne, Switzerland. In Med Sci Sports Exerc, 2011
METHODS: Sedentary subjects performed four different trips at a self-selected pace: walking 1.7 km uphill from the train station to the hospital (WALK), biking 5.1 km from the lower part of town to the hospital with a regular bike (BIKE), or EAB at two different power assistance settings (EAB high, EAB std).
A 24.2-Mb deletion of 4q12 --> q21.21 characterized by array CGH in a 131/2-year-old girl with short stature, mental retardation, developmental delay, hyperopia, exotropia, enamel defects, delayed tooth eruption and delayed puberty.

We speculate that haploinsufficiency of the AMTN, ENAM and AMBN genes is most likely responsible for dental disorders, haploinsufficiency of the BMP2K genes is most likely responsible for ocular disorders, and haploinsufficiency of the EREG, AREG and BTC genes is most likely responsible for delayed puberty in this patient.
