An immediate–late gene expression module decodes ERK signal duration

Mol Syst Biol
PMCID: 5448165
PMID: 28468958
DOI: 10.15252/msb.20177554

[…] ks with varying degree of complexity have been presented to estimate the contribution of processing, transcription and degradation rates from measured RNA dynamics (Zeisel et al, ; Rabani et al, ; de Pretis et al, ; Cheng et al, ). Two main conclusions arise from these studies. First, ordinary differential equations with only few parameters can accurately reflect mRNA dynamics. Secondly, changes i […]


Children of mentally ill parents—a pilot study of a group intervention program

Front Psychol
PMCID: 4611090
PMID: 26539129
DOI: 10.3389/fpsyg.2015.01494

[…] Howard and Underdown, ; Rasic et al., ). Studies have shown that about 23–32% of patients admitted to mental health care are caring for children (Test et al., ; Östman and Hansson, ; Fraser et al., ; Pretis and Dimova, ; Maybery et al., ). Given the number of families in Germany and the overall rates of adult psychological illness, this suggests ~3.8 million children that have a parent with a psyc […]


Clinicoradiological appraisal of ‘paraduodenal pancreatitis’: Pancreatitis outside the pancreas!

PMCID: 4531457
PMID: 26288527
DOI: 10.4103/0971-3026.161467

[…] d/or duodenal wall cysts which may protrude into the duodenal lumen and (2) the “solid” type characterized by a marked medial duodenal wall thickening with a sheet-like solid mass in the groove [].[] Pretis et al., in their series of 112 patients, reported cystic variant in 79 (70%) patients and solid type in 33 (30%) patients,[] whereas of the 33 patients in the present study, the disease was pre […]
