[…] the aim of this study is to characterize islet specific nampt expression, secretion and regulation by glucose in human islets., isolated islets were obtained from axon cells formally known as betapro llc (gordonsville, va). pancreas procurement for islet isolation was approved by university of virginia institutional review board for health sciences research committee. pancreatic tissue […]

[…] islet distribution program, the midwest organ transplant network, the university of kansas tissue repository, the national institute of child health and human development brain and tissue bank and betapro. isolated islets were obtained from 23 donors and pancreatic sections obtained from 6 donors. fifty-nine percent of the donors were female, and the donors had an average age of 42.6 ± 2.78 y. […]

[…] role to determine the parallel or antiparallel orientation of β-strands [], and the statistical results could possibly be used to predict the β-strand orientation []. cheng and baldi [] introduced betapro method to predict and assemble β-strands into a β-sheet, in which a single misprediction of one amino acid pairing from the first stage could be amplified by the next stages and results […]

[…] used to manage diabetic complications should, at the least, have a neutral if not beneficial effect on islets., human tissues were obtained from the integrated islet distribution program (iidp) and betapro (gordonsville, va). the samples of isolated islets were from 13 adult donors, whose characteristics are described in . none of the donors were diagnosed with diabetes or metabolic syndrome. […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0032461

[…] these pairwise potentials were used to derive a weighted contact potential between -strands, and to derive a rank-ordered list of predicted -sheet topologies. cheng and baldi presented an algorithm betapro, which predicts the arrangement of -strands in a three stage approach. 2d recursive neural networks were trained to predict the contact potential between amino acid pairs. these pseudo […]
