The East River tidal strait, New York City, New York, a high-nutrient, low-chlorophyll coastal system

The East River tidal strait, located between New York Harbor and Western Long Island Sound, is characterized by high suspended silt concentrations with low organic content kept in suspension by intense tidal currents. Inorganic nutrients, including nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, and phosphate, were high even during the summer. Dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) concentrations...

Serum Enzyme Profiles Differentiate Five Types of Muscular Dystrophy

Background. Differentiation among types of muscular dystrophy (MD) has remained challenging. In this retrospective study, we sought to develop a methodology for differentiation of MD types using analysis of serum enzyme profiles. Methods. The serum levels of enzymes from 232 patients, including 120 with DMD, 36 with BMD, 36 with FSHD, 46 with LGMD, and 11 with EDMD, were...

Serum Creatinine Level: A Supplemental Index to Distinguish Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy from Becker Muscular Dystrophy

Background. To improve assessment of dystrophinopathy, the aim of this study was to identify whether serum creatinine (Crn) level reflects disease severity. Methods. Biochemical, Vignos score, and genetic data were collected on 212 boys with dystrophinopathy. Results. Serum Crn level had a strong inverse correlation with Vignos score by simple correlation and partial correlation...

Whole genome sequencing of glioblastoma multiforme identifies multiple structural variations involved in EGFR activation

Next generation sequencing has become a powerful tool in dissecting and identifying mutations and genomic structural variants that accompany tumourigenesis. Sequence analysis of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) illustrates the ability to rapidly identify mutations that may affect phenotype. Approximately 50% of human GBMs overexpress epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) which...

Temporal variability of chlorophyll in Narragansett Bay, 1973–1990

Weekly measurements of Chl a were carried out between 1973 and 1990 in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, a temperate estuary along the north-eastern US coast. There was only a threefold variation in mean annual chlorophyll values but a considerably greater variation in the period when the annual maximum was reached. The inter-annual variation in annual means was relatively modest...
