A gene expression analysis of pluripotent and lineage markers reveals significantly higher expression levels of Nanog and Mvh in ES R1 cells than in EC F9 cells at all stages of differentiation indicating a possible role of these genes in the maintenance of differentiation and tumorigenic potentials.
The expression of Mvh and Piwil2 was decreased in the all of the experimental groups and that of Stra-8 was significantly increased (p[less than or equal to]0.05) in IC+CO group compared to purified PGC-like cells.
Maxilla.--Six morphometric characters were studied, five in the triangular region (tr) that articulates with the nasal, premaxillae, prenasal, and vomer: length of the triangle (ML), height of the triangle (MH), width from the lateral surface of the triangle to the medial margin of the facet (fv) for articulation with the vomer (MW), and height (MVH) and width (MVW) of the facet.
"Not once during the numerous times when attorney Ratigan was advising the various Peterborough boards did he ever disclose that he was employed by a potential business competitor of MVH. I consider this a patent and gross conflict of interest."
