New York City, United States. In Doc Ophthalmol, 22 Apr 2015
PURPOSE: To report the results of an acetazolamide (Diamox(®)) treatment regimen in a genetically confirmed case of X-linked juvenile retinoschisis (XLRS).
Mechanisms of Starch Digestion by α-amylase-structural Basis for Kinetic Properties.
Australia. In Crit Rev Food Sci Nutr, 09 Apr 2015
The current classification of resistant starch types as RS1,2,3,4 should be replaced by one which recognises the essential kinetic nature of RS (enzyme digestion rate vs small intestinal passage rate), and that there are two fundamental origins for resistance based on (i) rate-determining access/binding of enzyme to substrate and (ii) rate-determining conversion of substrate to product once bound.
Association and Promoter Analysis of AVPR1A in Finnish Autism Families.
Helsinki, Finland. In Autism Res, 23 Mar 2015
Given that the microsatellite RS1 and a few SNPs in the promoter region of the AVPR1A have repeatedly associated with several traits, including autism it is rather surprising that the molecular explanation for these associations has remained unknown, although it has been reported that the allele length of the AVPR1A microsatellites might affect disease risk.
Retinal microglia: Just bystander or target for therapy?
Köln, Germany. In Prog Retin Eye Res, Jan 2015
These include rare hereditary retinopathies such as retinitis pigmentosa and X-linked juvenile retinoschisis but also comprise more common multifactorial retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and uveitis as well as neurological disorders with ocular manifestation.
Biology of retinoschisin.
Bethesda, United States. In Adv Exp Med Biol, 2011
RS1 is needed for preservation of synaptic structures but not synaptogenesis in retinoschisis model.
Duplication and amplification of toxin genes in Vibrio cholerae.
In Cell, 1983
The variation in size among these large tandem duplications was due to a difference in the copy number of a smaller, 2.7 kb, tandemly repeated sequence (RS1) that is located at the novel joint of these duplications, as well as upstream and downstream of ctx.
