Dysfunction of fast axonal transport, vital for motor neurons, may lead to neurodegeneration. Anterograde transport is mediated by N-kinesins (KIFs), while retrograde transport by dynein 1 and, to a minor extent, by C-kinesins. In our earlier studies we observed changes in expression of N- and C-kinesins (KIF5A, 5C, C2) in ...

We report the design, synthesis, optical and electronic properties of two novel narrow band gap conjugated polyelectrolytes (NBGCPEs) based on a poly[2,6-(4,4-bis-alkyl-4H-cyclopenta-[2,1-b;3,4-b']-dithiophene)-alt-4,7-(2,1,3-benzothiadiazole)] donor-acceptor backbone. Compar-ison to the properties of the neutral precursor material, shows that the ionic component in these cationic NBGCPEs leads to a red shift in the absorption ...

Intravenous regional anesthesia (Bier block) is indicated for minor procedures such as carpal tunnel release but must be performed in the operating room. We hypothesize that preoperative peripheral nerve blocks decrease anesthesia-controlled time compared to Bier block for carpal tunnel release. With IRB approval, we reviewed surgical case data from ...
