Comparative mapping of the region of human chromosome 7 deleted in williams syndrome. (1/254)

Williams syndrome (WS) is a complex developmental disorder resulting from the deletion of a large (approximately 1.5-2 Mb) segment of human chromosome 7q11.23. Physical mapping studies have revealed that this deleted region, which contains a number of known genes, is flanked by several large, nearly identical blocks of DNA. The presence of such highly related DNA segments in close physical proximity to one another has hampered efforts to elucidate the precise long-range organization of this segment of chromosome 7. To gain insight about the structure and evolutionary origins of this important and complex genomic region, we have constructed a fully contiguous bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) and P1-derived artificial chromosome (PAC) contig map encompassing the corresponding region on mouse chromosome 5. In contrast to the difficulties encountered in constructing a clone-based physical map of the human WS region, the BAC/PAC-based map of the mouse WS region was straightforward to construct, with no evidence of large duplicated segments, such as those encountered in the human WS region. To confirm this difference, representative human and mouse BACs were used as probes for performing fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to metaphase and interphase chromosomes. Human BACs derived from the nonunique portion of the WS region hybridized to multiple, closely spaced regions on human chromosome 7q11.23. In contrast, corresponding mouse BACs hybridized to a single site on mouse chromosome 5. Furthermore, FISH analysis revealed the presence of duplicated segments within the WS region of various nonhuman primates (chimpanzee, gorilla, orangutan, and gibbon). Hybridization was also noted at the genomic locations corresponding to human chromosome 7p22 and 7q22 in human, chimpanzee, and gorilla, but not in the other animal species examined. Together, these results indicate that the WS region is associated with large, duplicated blocks of DNA on human chromosome 7q11.23 as well as the corresponding genomic regions of other nonhuman primates. However, such duplications are not present in the mouse.  (+info)

Williams-Beuren syndrome: genes and mechanisms. (2/254)

Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS; OMIM 194050) is caused by heterozygous deletions of approximately 1.6 Mb of chromosomal sub-band 7q11.23. The deletions are rather uniform in size as they arise spontaneously by inter- or intrachromosomal crossover events within misaligned duplicated regions of high sequence identity that flank the typical deletion. This review will discuss the status of the molecular characterization of the deletion and flanking regions, the genes identified in the deletion region and their possible roles in generating the complex multi-system clinical phenotype.  (+info)

A transcription factor involved in skeletal muscle gene expression is deleted in patients with Williams syndrome. (3/254)

Williams-Beuren syndrome (WS) is a developmental disorder caused by a hemizygous microdeletion of approximately 1.4MB at chromosomal location 7q11.23. The transcription map of the WS critical region is not yet complete. We have isolated and characterised a 3.4 kb gene, GTF3, which occupies about 140 kb of the deleted region. Northern blot analysis showed that the gene is expressed in skeletal muscle and heart, and RT-PCR analysis showed expression in a range of adult tissues with stronger expression in foetal tissues. Part of the conceptual GTF3 protein sequence is almost identical to a recently reported slow muscle-fibre enhancer binding protein MusTRD1, and shows significant homology to the 90 amino-acid putative helix-loop-helix repeat (HLH) domains of the transcription factor TFII-I (encoded for by the gene GTF2I). These genes may be members of a new family of transcription factors containing this HLH-like repeated motif. Both GTF3 and GTF2I map within the WS deleted region, with GTF2I being positioned distal to GTF3. GTF3 is deleted in patients with classic WS, but not in patients we have studied with partial deletions of the WS critical region who have only supravalvular aortic stenosis. A feature of WS is abnormal muscle fatiguability, and we suggest that haploinsufficiency of the GTF3 gene may be the cause of this.  (+info)

Second-order belief attribution in Williams syndrome: intact or impaired? (4/254)

Second-order mental state attribution in a group of children with Williams syndrome was investigated. The children were compared to age, IQ, and language-matched groups of children with Prader-Willi syndrome or nonspecific mental retardation. Participants were given two trials of a second-order reasoning task. No significant differences between the Williams syndrome and Prader-Willi or mentally retarded groups on any of the test questions were found. Results contrast with the view that individuals with Williams syndrome have an intact theory of mind and suggest that in their attributions of second-order mental states, children with Williams syndrome perform no better than do other groups of children with mental retardation.  (+info)

Cognitive modularity and genetic disorders. (5/254)

This study challenges the use of adult neuropsychological models for explaining developmental disorders of genetic origin. When uneven cognitive profiles are found in childhood or adulthood, it is assumed that such phenotypic outcomes characterize infant starting states, and it has been claimed that modules subserving these abilities start out either intact or impaired. Findings from two experiments with infants with Williams syndrome (a phenotype selected to bolster innate modularity claims) indicate a within-syndrome double dissociation: For numerosity judgments, they do well in infancy but poorly in adulthood, whereas for language, they perform poorly in infancy but well in adulthood. The theoretical and clinical implications of these results could lead to a shift in focus for studies of genetic disorders.  (+info)

A physical map, including a BAC/PAC clone contig, of the Williams-Beuren syndrome--deletion region at 7q11.23. (6/254)

Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) is a developmental disorder caused by haploinsufficiency for genes in a 2-cM region of chromosome band 7q11.23. With the exception of vascular stenoses due to deletion of the elastin gene, the various features of WBS have not yet been attributed to specific genes. Although >/=16 genes have been identified within the WBS deletion, completion of a physical map of the region has been difficult because of the large duplicated regions flanking the deletion. We present a physical map of the WBS deletion and flanking regions, based on assembly of a bacterial artificial chromosome/P1-derived artificial chromosome contig, analysis of high-throughput genome-sequence data, and long-range restriction mapping of genomic and cloned DNA by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Our map encompasses 3 Mb, including 1.6 Mb within the deletion. Two large duplicons, flanking the deletion, of >/=320 kb contain unique sequence elements from the internal border regions of the deletion, such as sequences from GTF2I (telomeric) and FKBP6 (centromeric). A third copy of this duplicon exists in inverted orientation distal to the telomeric flanking one. These duplicons show stronger sequence conservation with regard to each other than to the presumptive ancestral loci within the common deletion region. Sequence elements originating from beyond 7q11.23 are also present in these duplicons. Although the duplicons are not present in mice, the order of the single-copy genes in the conserved syntenic region of mouse chromosome 5 is inverted relative to the human map. A model is presented for a mechanism of WBS-deletion formation, based on the orientation of duplicons' components relative to each other and to the ancestral elements within the deletion region.  (+info)

Characterization and gene structure of a novel retinoblastoma-protein-associated protein similar to the transcription regulator TFII-I. (7/254)

Retinoblastoma protein (Rb) is an important regulator of vertebrate cell cycle and development. It functions through a direct interaction with protein factors involved in cell cycle progression and differentiation. In the present study we characterized a novel Rb-associated protein, Cream1, which bound to Rb specifically through a C-terminal region. Cream1 contained 959 amino acid residues and migrated as a protein of approx. 120 kDa on SDS/PAGE. It was a widely expressed nuclear protein with a nuclear localization signal resembling that of the large T antigen of simian virus 40. Its primary sequence was characteristic of five direct repeats that were similar to, but distinct from, those of TFII-I, a multifunctional transcription regulator. Three additional regions were also highly conserved in both proteins. Cream1 exhibited an activation activity that was attributed to its N-terminal portion when assayed in yeast. Its relationship with the muscle-enhancer-binding protein MusTRD1 further suggests a role in regulating gene expression. The structural gene, CREAM1, contained 27 exons and spanned more than 150 kb. It was located at human chromosome 7q11.23 in a region deleted for Williams' syndrome, a neurodevelopmental disease with multisystem abnormalities, implying its involvement in certain disorders. Taken together, our results suggest that Cream1 might serve as a positive transcription regulator under the control of Rb.  (+info)

A family of chromatin remodeling factors related to Williams syndrome transcription factor. (8/254)

Chromatin remodeling complexes have been implicated in the disruption or reformation of nucleosomal arrays resulting in modulation of transcription, DNA replication, and DNA repair. Here we report the isolation of WCRF, a new chromatin-remodeling complex from HeLa cells. WCRF is composed of two subunits, WCRF135, the human homolog of Drosophila ISWI, and WCRF180, a protein related to the Williams syndrome transcription factor. WCRF180 is a member of a family of proteins sharing a putative heterochromatin localization domain, a PHD finger, and a bromodomain, prevalent in factors involved in regulation of chromatin structure.  (+info)

ndividuals with Williams syndrome typically show relatively poor visuospatial abilities in comparison to stronger verbal skills. However, individuals level of performance is not consistent across all visuospatial tasks. The studies assessing visuospatial functioning in Williams syndrome are critically reviewed, to provide a clear pattern of the relative difficulty of these tasks. This prompts a possible explanation of the variability in performance seen, which focuses on the processing demands of some of these tasks. Individuals with Williams syndrome show an atypical processing style on tests of construction, which does not affect tests of perception.. ...

Williams syndrome is characterized by a wide spectrum of symptoms and physical features that vary greatly in range and severity, even among affected family members. Individuals with Williams syndrome will not have all the symptoms listed below. Some affected individuals do not have heart (cardiac) abnormalities; others may not have elevated levels of calcium in the body (hypercalcemia). In addition, the severity of these symptoms often varies greatly from case to case.. Some children with Williams syndrome may have a low birth weight, feed poorly, and fail to gain weight and grow at the expected rate (failure to thrive). Symptoms such as vomiting, gagging, diarrhea, and constipation are common during infancy.

Most individuals with Williams syndrome have an affinity to music. They are touched by music in ways not usually seen in the general population. It is quite common for those with Williams syndrome to be reduced to tears by classical music, disturbed by music played in minor chords or moved to dance and laugh by playful and happy music.
The Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) is a sporadic congenital disorder characterized by a multisystem developmental impairment. This syndrome is caused by a microdeletion in chromosome 7q11.23 that encompasses loss of the elastin locus.. Elastin, which is part of the extracellular matrix, controls proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and stabilizes arterial structure. Loss of elastin gene in WBS patients has been claimed to provide a biological basis for the abnormal elastic fibre properties leading to cardiovascular abnormalities like supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS), hypertension, arteriosclerosis and stenosis in more than 50% of WBS children.. These cardiovascular pathologies result in important consequences and neither curative nor preventive medicinal treatments exist at this time. Surgery is needed in more than half cases, while it is often leading to complications.. Minoxidil is a well-known antihypertensive drug used in adults and children. Furthermore, according to ...
Williams syndrome (WS) is a developmental disorder that affects many parts of the body. Facial features frequently include a broad forehead, short nose, and full cheeks, an appearance that has been described as elfin. Mild to moderate intellectual disability with particular problems with visual spatial tasks such as drawing and fewer problems with language are typical. Those affected often have an outgoing personality and interact readily with strangers. Problems with teeth, heart problems, especially supravalvular aortic stenosis, and periods of high blood calcium are common. Williams syndrome is caused by a genetic abnormality, specifically a deletion of about 27 genes from the long arm of one of the two chromosome 7s. Typically this occurs as a random event during the formation of the egg or sperm from which a person develops. In a small number of cases it is inherited from an affected parent in an autosomal dominant manner. The different characteristic features have been linked to the loss ...

Author Summary A fundamental question in current biomedical research is to establish a link between genomic variation and phenotypic differences, which encompasses both the seemingly neutral diversity, as well as the pathological variation that causes or predisposes to disease. Once the primary genetic cause(s) of a disease or phenotype has been identified, we need to understand the biochemical consequences of such variants that eventually lead to increased disease risk. Such phenotypic effects of genetic differences are supposedly brought about by changes in expression levels, either of the genes affected by the genetic change or indirectly through position effects. Thus, transcriptome analyses seem appropriate proxies to study the consequences of structural variation, such as the 7q11.23 deletion present in individuals with Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS). Here, we present an approach that takes experimental data into account instead of relying solely on functional annotation, following the rationale

MS Thesis: EXPRESSION AND FUNCTION OF WILLIAMS SYNDROME TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR (WSTF) IN THE NEURAL DEVELOPMENT OF XENOPUS LAEVIS Imitation Switch (ISWI) is a member of the SWI2/SNF2 superfamily of ATP-dependent chromatin remodelers. Twenty different ISWI complexes have been identified so far in yeast, Drosophila, Xenopus and mammals. Three ISWI-containing complexes, WICH, ACF and CHRAC, have been characterized in Xenopus. Loss of ISWI function in Xenopus embryos results in severe defects in neural and eye development, including loss of retinal differentiation and formation of cataracts. We have begun to dissect the contributions of individual ISWI-dependent complexes to development, by using in situ hybridization and antisense morpholino knockdowns against subunits unique to different ISWI-containing complexes. Here I have investigated the WICH complex in Xenopus and have targeted the WSTF subunit. Whole mount in situ hybridization shows WSTF localized in the neural tissue including eye, brain, ...
Spoken language is probably the most important form of social interaction between people and, maybe not surprisingly, we found that the way the brain processes language mirrors the contrasting social phenotypes of Williams syndrome and autism spectrum disorders, says lead author Inna Fishman, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist in the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience at the Salk, who conceived the study together with Debra Mills, Ph.D., currently a reader at Bangor University in UK. Autism spectrum disorders and Williams syndrome are both neurodevelopmental disorders but their manifestations couldnt be more different: While autistic individuals live in a world where objects make much more sense than people do, people with Williams syndrome are social butterflies who bask in other peoples attention. Despite myriad health problems, generally low IQs and severe spatial problems, people with Williams syndrome are irresistibly drawn to strangers, look intently at peoples faces, remember names and ...

Author(s): Hanson, Kari | Advisor(s): Semendeferi, Katerina | Abstract: The evolution of the human brain has yielded advanced cognitive capacities supporting the development of language, technologically advanced material culture, and highly complex social behavior that has allowed for the development of the rich diversity of human cultures. Comparative neuroanatomy in evolutionary perspective continues to make great strides in characterizing and defining unique elements of the human neuroanatomical phenotype at the gross and microscopic level that underlie these key behavioral adaptations. In conjunction with these studies, an understanding of the functional implications of derived anatomical traits is gained through analyses of neurodevelopmental disorders, which help to define a spectrum of variation in the diversity of human brain phenotypes. Williams syndrome (WS) is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder caused by a hemideletion of ~1.6 Mb (25-28 genes) on human chromosome 7q11.23, a highly dynamic

Williams syndrome is caused by the deletion of 1.5-1.8 megabases (measurement of length) of genetic material at chromosome 7q11.23. Although there are several genes included in the deleted region of chromosome 7, no single gene has been identified as causing Williams syndrome.. Genes that are typically deleted include; Elastin, LIMK1, CLIP2, GTF2IRD1 AND GTF2I. Elastin is missing in 95-99% of individuals with Williams syndrome and therefore is the main gene used to genetically diagnose Williams syndrome. Elastin is a protein found in connective tissue which is important for connecting organs and tissues, and for storing nutrients. The loss of elastin is associated with connective tissue abnormalities and cardiovascular (heart) disease.. Download this page as a PDF. ...
The molecular and neural mechanisms regulating human social-emotional behaviors are fundamentally important but largely unknown; unraveling these requires a genetic systems neuroscience analysis of human models. Williams Syndrome (WS), a condition caused by deletion of ∼28 genes, is associated with a gregarious personality, strong drive to approach strangers, difficult peer interactions, and attraction to music. WS provides a unique opportunity to identify endogenous human gene-behavior mechanisms. Social neuropeptides including oxytocin (OT) and arginine vasopressin (AVP) regulate reproductive and social behaviors in mammals, and we reasoned that these might mediate the features of WS. Here we established blood levels of OT and AVP in WS and controls at baseline, and at multiple timepoints following a positive emotional intervention (music), and a negative physical stressor (cold). We also related these levels to standardized indices of social behavior. Results revealed significantly higher median
Williams syndrome (WS) is the rare neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by: an elfin or distinctive facial appearance, along with a low nasal bridge; a demeanor which is unusually cheerful, and ease with strangers; strong language skills with developmental delay. This is the forum for discussing anything related to this health condition
Williams syndrome is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder caused by a deletion of about 26 genes from the long arm of chromosome 7. It is characterized by mental disability, heart defects and unusual facial features.
My research focuses mainly on language and number development in both typical and atypical developmental disorders, such as Williams syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down syndrome, and Specific Language Impairment. Linking the aforementioned areas of research activity, I am interested in individual differences, as well as exploring what cognitive abilities and strategies relate to successful performance in typical populations and how these differ in atypical populations, in order to aid the development of economically valid training programmes. I believe that it is important to study abilities from infancy onwards in order to obtain a better understanding of how cognitive abilities develop over time and how performance across different cognitive areas relate to each other. I employ a range of methods and experimental designs, including spontaneous language samples, preferential looking, experimental tasks, and eye tracking (Tobii).. I use a range of methodologies and for some of my studies. ...
Face recognition ability is often reported to be a relative strength in Williams syndrome (WS). Yet methodological issues associated with the supporting research, and evidence that atypical face processing mechanisms may drive outcomes in the typical range, challenge these simplistic characterisations of this important social ability. Detailed investigations of face processing abilities in WS both at a behavioural and neural level provide critical insights. Here, we behaviourally characterised face recognition ability in 18 individuals with WS comparatively to typically developing children and adult control groups. A subset of 11 participants with WS as well as chronologically age matched typical adults further took part in an EEG task where they were asked to attentively view a series of upright and inverted faces and houses. State-of-the-art multivariate pattern analysis (MVPA) was used alongside standard ERP analysis to obtain a detailed characterisation of the neural profile associated ...
So WS people need special strategies to cope with their difficulties with spatial information, attention, and controlling actions. Sometimes these difficulties lead to anxiety in particular situations. However, with practice and special strategies, many individuals with Williams syndrome can overcome or reduce their difficulties. There are always exceptions - one WS child tested in the VDU is a brilliant skier and another is a very proficient ballet dancer. However, many WS children seem to prefer musical activities, drama, computer games or collecting things, rather than sports activities and that is fine - we wouldnt all want to be a Lionel Messi!!. At present Jan Atkinson , Oliver Braddick (husband) and their collaborators are testing an app for use on an iPad which has been devised by them in the Visual Development Unit to measure different aspects of visual and auditory attention. It is called the ECAB, Early Child Attention Battery, and consists of 4-8 subtests, each lasting a few ...

A cardiovascular problem called Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis (SVAS) can be associated with Williams Syndrome. SVAS is the narrowing of the large blood vessel which carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body. This problem could cause shortness of breath, chest pain and ultimately heart failure if not treated. Decreased birth weight and failure to gain weight normally is also common. There can also be digestive and urinary tract difficulties.. ...
William-Beuren Syndrome is named after John C.P. Williams, a cardiologist from New Zealand, and Alois J Beuren, a German physician and cardiac researcher. Initial investigation into Williams-Beuren Syndrome came from two apparently different disorders, idiopathic infantry hypercalcemia and Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis (SVAS). With further research, these abnormalities were identified as being aspects of this same syndrome. [5] The first cases related to Williams Syndrome were in relation to Infantile Hypercalcemia. In 1957 Stapleton and colleagues studied the effects of hypercalcemia in a number of infants and noted several consistencies between them including abnormal facial features, failure to thrive, developmental delay, and systolic murmurs of the heart, all of which have now been associated with Williams Syndrome. [6] [1] J.C.P Williams was one of the first to recognise some of the clinical factors associated with this syndrome. In a study conducted in 1961 of Supravalvular Aortic ...
The lesions of the aortic root, which are supravalvular aortic stenosis and coronary ostial stenosis, in familial hypercholesterolemia were studied using two-dimensional echocardiography. The subjects were 25 heterozygotes, six homozygotes and 30 control subjects. The internal diameters of the aortic ring, the sinus of Valsalva and the supravalvular aortic ring were measured. Measurement variation due to body size was avoided by normalizing the latter two values by the diameter of the aortic ring. Four heterozygotes and all homozygotes were judged to have stenosis of the supravalvular aortic ring; none of heterozygotes and four homozygotes had stenosis of the sinus of Valsalva. In three of the four patients with stenosis of both the supravalvular aortic ring and the sinus of Valsalva, a pressure gradient was demonstrated. The degree of supravalvular aortic stenosis correlated with the serum cholesterol level but not with patient age. All homozygotes, even very young ones, had a severe aortic ...
People with intellectual disabilities or those extremely social and trusting are more susceptible to exploitation and abuse on social media platforms like Facebook, researchers have revealed.. Get the Free Tracker App to find a Nintendo Switch in Stock. The team from Michigan State University found that adults with Williams syndrome -- who are extremely social and trusting -- use Facebook and other social networking sites frequently and are especially vulnerable to online victimization.. You have this very social group of people who are vulnerable in real life and now they are seeking a social outlet through the Internet, communicating with people they know and dont know, said Marisa Fisher, assistant professor of special education.. They dont have the training or the knowledge to know how to determine what is risky behavior, Fisher added.. Roughly a third of participants said they would send their photo to an unknown person, arrange to go to the home of a person they met online and keep ...
Supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) is an uncommon vascular defect causing blood flow obstruction that usually develops in the first few years of life.. This defect is a narrowing (stenosis) of the large blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body (the aorta), especially at major branch points.. The condition is described as supravalvular because the section of the aorta that is narrowed is located just above the valve that connects the aorta with the heart (the aortic valve).. Isolated SVAS is caused by genetic changes in the elastin gene (ELN) that can be passed from parent to child. Elastin defects are associated with connective tissue abnormalities, such joint problems, hernias, and cardiovascular disease. In children with Williams syndrome, the elastin gene is deleted along with 25-27 other genes that cause developmental delays and hormone problems. The elastin gene provides instructions for making a protein called tropoelastin. Elastin is the major component of ...
Supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) is a type of heart defect that develops before birth. It is characterized by a narrowing (stenosis) of the section of the aorta just above the valve that connects the aorta to the heart (aortic valve). The severity of SVAS varies from person to person; some individuals may die in infancy while others never experience symptoms. If symptoms develop, they may include shortness of breath, chest pain, murmur, and/or eventual heart failure. Some affected individuals also have defects in other blood vessels, such as the pulmonary artery. SVAS can be caused by mutations in the ELN gene and be inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, although some individuals that inherit the mutated gene never develop features of the condition (called reduced penetrance). SVAS can also be associated with Williams syndrome. Treatment may include surgery to repair the condition in severe cases.[6087][6088]. For more information, visit GARD. ...
William-Beuren Syndrome is named after John C.P. Williams, a cardiologist from New Zealand, and Alois J Beuren, a German physician and cardiac researcher. Initial investigation into Williams-Beuren Syndrome came from two apparently different disorders, idiopathic infantile hypercalcemia and Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis (SVAS) . With further research, these abnormalities were identified as being aspects of this same syndrome. [7] The first cases related to Williams Syndrome involved Idiopathic Infantile Hypercalcemia. From as early as 1952, research into infantile hypercalcemia, by Falconi et.al, found that children with this disorder had common clinical characteristics such as a short stature and a variety of congenital malformations. [8] In the years that followed many other studies were conducted in this area revealing additional correlations. For example in 1957 Stapleton and colleagues studied the effects of hypercalcemia in a number of infants and noted several consistencies between them ...

OWEN, WILLIAM FITZ WILLIAM, naval officer, surveyor, landowner, politician, author, justice of the peace, and judge; b. 17 Sept. 1774 in Manchester, England, son of Captain William Owen* and perhaps Sarah Haslam; m. first January 1818 Martha Evans of Bedfordshire, and they had two daughters; m. secondly 11 Dec. 1852 Amy Nicholson, née Vernon, in Saint John, N.B.; d. there 3 Nov. 1857. Little of the future importance of William Fitz William Owen was to be noted in the first 30 years of his life. Illegitimate and orphaned at the age of four, he was boarded in foster homes in north Wales and knew nothing of family life and affection. However, he was an able scholar, best in mathematics and languages. His fathers friend Sir Thomas Rich kept an eye on both Owen and his elder brother, Edward Campbell Rich Owen, and was their patron, introducing them into naval service. William embarked at 13 in Richs ship, Culloden, and from that time shipboard was his universe. On shore and in civilian society ...
As part of an investigation of illicit drug traffic conducted by the Oklahoma legislature, representative Robert Cunningham seized Marshalls files. During an initial hearing, Marshall insisted that he was a doctor, refusing to answer further statements. Marshall gave Cunningham a list of his patients, including Hank Williams. Defending his position, he claimed that Williams possibly committed suicide. Marshall stated that Williams told him that he had decided to destroy the Hank Williams that was making the money they were getting. He attributed the decision to Williams declining career: Most of his bookings were of the honky-tonk beer joint variety that he simply hated. If he came to this conclusion (of suicide), he still had enough prestige left as a star to make a first-class production of it ... whereas, six months from now, unless he pulled himself back up into some high-class bookings, he might have been playing for nickels and dimes on skid row.[32] On March 10, Marshall was called ...

Married to my college sweetheart Shawn for 14 years, we have six children - Jamie (11), Clare (9), Simon (7), Violet (5), Eliza (3), and Cecily (1). Our second child, Clare, was born with a rare genetic condition, Williams syndrome, severe congenital heart defects (pulmonary stenosis and aortic stenosis), a Chiari Malformation, mid-aortic syndrome, and kidney issues. She has undergone one open heart surgery and ten cardiac catheterizations to repair her cardiac and vascular defects and has also undergone a frenulectomy (tongue-tie release) and an angio-embolization of her radial artery to repair an A-V fistula and aneurysm. On May 1, she had her longest surgery yet - a bypass graft of her abdominal aorta, a bypass graft of her SMA vessel, and a kidney re-transplant (kidneys transplanted elsewhere in her body). I began this blog when Clare was an infant to chronicle our life on this new journey into Williams syndrome and raising a child with special needs and a chronic heart condition. As our ...
GTF2IRD1 is one of the genes implicated in Williams-Beuren syndrome, a disease caused by haploinsufficiency of certain dosage-sensitive genes within a hemizygous microdeletion of chromosome 7. GTF2IRD1 is a prime candidate for some of the major features of the disease, presumably caused by abnormally reduced abundance of this putative transcriptional repressor protein. GTF2IRD1 has been shown to interact with the E3 SUMO ligase PIASxβ, but the significance of this relationship is largely unexplored. Here, we demonstrate that GTF2IRD1 can be SUMOylated by the SUMO E2 ligase UBC9 and the level of SUMOylation is enhanced by PIASxβ. A major SUMOylation site was mapped to lysine 495 within a conserved SUMO consensus motif. SUMOylation of GTF2IRD1 alters the affinity of the protein for binding partners that contain SUMO-interacting motifs, including a novel family member of the HDAC repressor complex, ZMYM5, and PIASxβ itself. In addition, we show that GTF2IRD1 is targeted for ubiquitination and ...
Harland Reesor Williams was born on November 14, 1962, in Toronto, Ontario, to Lorraine Mary (née ODonnell), a social worker, and John Reesor Williams, a lawyer who served as a member of the Ontario legislature from 1975 to 1985.[2] He is the middle child of five with two older and two younger sisters. Harland holds dual citizenship with Canada and the United States. He is the author and illustrator of his own series of childrens books involving a little brontosaurus named Jimbo. Williams love of art drove him to create the series, in which the curious, young dinosaur embarks on a series of amazing adventures and learns important life lessons in the process. The artistically inclined Williams had refined his passion for drawing and painting at Canadas Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario. Finding a creative outlet in poetry and painting while working as a forest ranger for five years after dropping out of Sheridan College, Williams set his goals to leave the forest as a stand-up comic and ...

Then, one of his friends gave him a cowboy hat, and everything changed.. He became fascinated with the idea of being a cowboy and going to a ranch, said Williams mother, Katherine. Ever since he has really enjoyed being with cowboys, and doing cowboy things.. And this idea helped William push forward during an incredibly difficult time.. The day William was diagnosed, our whole world stopped, said Katherine. Doctors told us that he needed to begin treatment immediately for his advanced burkitt lymphoma and we wouldnt be going home that night.. Everything was happening at such an advanced rate, but that didnt stop Katherine, widow and mother of 12, from being by Williams side along with all his siblings every step of the way.. When we were first approached about reaching out to Make-A-Wish Arizona, I didnt feel as though we deserved it, said Katherine. I didnt want to take away this chance from someone else, but when one of Williams nurses pulled me aside and reassured me that ...
William Gills warm heart and intellectual curiosity have made him a well-known student amongst the teaching faculty in SFUs Department of History. Professor Katie McCullough, who nominated Gill for this years Jennifer Wade Award in Scottish Studies, says William is an absolute pleasure to be around and truly has fun learning (as evidenced by his infectious laugh in class!). Professor Aaron Windel says, William is a tremendously talented student of history. His hard work, good humour and incisive mind leave an unforgettable impression. Not only is Williams academic work creating a buzz, he is also active in many endeavours that demonstrate his humanitarian nature and altruistic concern for often marginalized groups, such as LGBT youth.. Professor McCullough was especially impressed with Gills essay on Victorian Britain, which focused largely on Scotland, and compared the different everyday experiences of British boys and girls. The writing showed a high-level of sophistication and very ...

Lawyer, community leader and politician, William Norrie has, for most of his adult life, devoted himself to many of the important issues facing his community and has, for much of that time, been one of the communitys leaders. Born in St. Boniface in 1929, the younger of the two children of William and Mary Rae Norrie, he attended schools in Winnipeg and entered United College, now the University of Winnipeg, on an Isbister Scholarship. On completion of his Bachelor of Arts, he entered the Manitoba Law School. While a student in Law he served as President of the University of Manitoba Students Union - a not unworthy office - and was awarded the Manitoba Rhodes Scholarship. On his return from Oxford, William Norrie received his Bachelor of Laws degree from this University and entered the private practice of law. One might infer, Mr. Chancellor, that for all its glories, the law could not fully contain the aspirations, capacities and enthusiasms of William ...
With his strength restored, Williams takes renewed pleasure in riding his bicycles - he owns 50 - up and down the hills near his Napa Valley ranch. [...] they had to make a joke of their lethargy. Goldthwait has just directed Williams in an edgy and dark independent film, Worlds Greatest Dad. Williams plays a high school poetry teacher raising a teenage son by himself. The boy, played by Daryl Sabara (virtually unrecognizable from his Spy Kids role), is hateful, consumed by an overripe sexuality that leads him down a dangerous path. Bizarre subjectsDrawn to bizarre subjects, he last made a feature, Sleeping Dogs Lie, about a woman who commits a sexual act with her dog and understandably hides the fact. In Worlds Greatest Dad, Williams tries to make his sons death look like a suicide and writes a poetic suicide note questioning the meaning of life. More tortured missives follow, allegedly from the boys journal but really penned by his father. Goldthwaits knowledge of film and movie

TORONTO - A woman pursuing a lawsuit against convicted sex killer Russell Williams cant go after his military pension for potential damages just yet, Ontarios highest court ruled Monday.. A panel of three judges found that a proposed amendment to the lawsuits statement of claim, which would have allowed Williams pension to be targeted, was premature.. Williams, once a rising star in the Canadian Forces, was sentenced to life in prison in October 2010 after pleading guilty to the murders of Jessica Lloyd and Cpl. Marie-France Comeau.. In early August, he reached an out-of-court settlement with some of his victims, but a suit by sexual assault victim Laurie Massicotte remains active.. Massicotte, who has chosen to reveal her identity and speak publicly about her ordeal, filed a nearly $7-million lawsuit in late 2011 against Williams, his wife and the province of Ontario.. In her claim she said the attack against her left her fearful, humiliated, depressed, suicidal, unable to function in ...
Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell forevermore (Psalm 37:25-27).. Ever merciful. Such beautiful words! Hidden here are economic recessions, personal disappointments, trials to faith, and the gloating gait of the wicked, strutting with his ill-gotten gain. Despite it all-even famine itself-the righteous are ever merciful and giving. What a statement of faith!. In many ways, Pilgrim William Bradford epitomizes this psalm, and in particular these two words, ever merciful. Far beyond the turkey and the Indians, this Pilgrim governor should be remembered for his principled generosity in the midst of severe economic deprivation.. William Bradford was born around 1590 to fairly well-to-do yeoman farmers in northern England. His family had feather beds, flocks of lambs, and spoons that were silver, not wood; but money is no shield against death. First his father, then his mother died, leaving seven-year-old William sickly and in the care of his two uncles. Forced to lay low, William took to ...

The protein encoded by this intronless gene belongs to the claudin family. Claudins are integral membrane proteins that are components of the epithelial cell tight junctions, which regulate movement of solutes and ions through the paracellular space. This protein is a high-affinity receptor for Clostridium perfringens enterotoxin (CPE) and may play a role in internal organ development and function during pre- and postnatal life. This gene is deleted in Williams-Beuren syndrome, a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting multiple systems. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2013 ...

Tad Williams has a new book set in Osten Ard, The Heart of What Was Lost. At only 224 pages it seems more like a novella compared to what he produced for his original series. The last of that of that trilogy, Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn, To Green Angel Tower, weighed in at more than 1,000 pages in the original print hardcover edition (of course it was split in two for paper back).. People are talking about how Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn Book was an inspiration for series such as A Song of Ice and Fire. First, Williams finished the series in three books. So thats a huge difference. Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn Book produced large narratives on a per publication basis, but the story was relatively spare compared to what people are attempting now (Brandon Sandersons The Stormlight Archive is already coming out with 1,000 pages books in a projected ten book series). Additionally, Williams world-building was relatively thin and superficial, while the ultimate resolution of the plot threads of Memory, ...

Executive summary: Liver therapy for pernicious anemia. Military service: US Army (1917-18). As a young man, William Murphys only interest was in practicing medicine, but he could not afford tuition to medical school. Instead he taught math in public schools, saving from each paycheck for eventual admission to the University of Oregon Medical School, where, after one year of study, he was unable to afford his second years tuition. He spent two years in the Army, before discovering and applying for a peculiar fellowship at Harvard, endowed by 1885 alumnus William Stanislaus Murphy (no relation) specifically to help fund collegiate education of men of the name of Murphy. The fund for Murphys has since been depleted, but it allowed William Murphy to become Dr Murphy in 1922.. He then practiced in Boston and taught at Harvard, where he was drawn into research into research on diabetes mellitus and pernicious anemia. Working with Dr George R. Minot, Murphy noted that anemia patients showed marked ...
This essay will focus on the collapse of William Dorrit (Bk 2, ch 19) and examine Williams imprisonment to self-deception in this passage as a consequence of his moral debts to society and Amy, what effects this has on his character in the novel as a whole, and if his collapse and death can be seen as an escape from, or a submission to, the paralysing stagnation (Daleski, 1970) of his imprisonment.. Self-deception is not unique to William, and Showalter (1979, pp. 23) implies that it could even be a means of survival in the Marshalsea, that the inhabitants sustain a precarious identity by systematically denying the reality of their situation. Just as the prisoners refer to themselves as collegians, Dorrit too makes pretences above his station; his welcoming speech asserts that he is not a beggar (Dickens 1996, pp. 614) and he survives on euphemistically termed testimonials, subscriptions and tributes which he creatively fails to acknowledge, for example by taking them in concealed ...

The surgery saved his life. Now 11 and experiencing recurrent problems, William is once again under expert care at UNC, this time in the new childrens hospital. This is Williams story.
Dr. Williams was acutely aware of the limited opportunities available to African-Americans in the medical profession. Additionally, although there were 15,000 black people living in Chicago, very few of the citys medical establishments were willing to provide them care. When a young black woman named Emma Reynolds told him she had been refused admission to every nursing school shed applied to, it spurred him into action.. With the assistance of prominent Chicago residents, Dr. Williams opened Provident Hospital, the first African-American owned hospital in the country. Both black and white doctors were employed at Provident, with quality, color-blind care being Dr. Williams mission statement. The nursing students were not forgotten - the Freedmans Hospital School of Nursing was founded in Washington D.C. in 1894. Emma Reynolds was part of the first graduating class.. On July 9, 1893, a young man named James Cornish came to Provident Hospital with stab wounds to the chest, injuries that ...

For family tree see Ancestry (subscription required). When the administrations of the colonies of Demerara and Essequibo were united in 1812, William Robertson was appointed to the public office of additional or second fiscal and served in this role until his death, at his house on Leguan Island, on 23 January 1815 [E&DG 30 May 1812; E&DRG 31 Jan 1815]. By December of that year his plantation Maryville & Liberty, with its 110 slaves, had been acquired by John Noble and Charles Lamont Robertson [1784-1866] [E&DRG 23 Dec 1815]. Charles was Williams younger brother. When young Edward Fraser of Reelig arrived in Guyana in 1803, one of the first people he met was a Charles Robertson, who invited him to his brothers house on Leguan Island [NRAS 2696]. In the same week as William died in 1815, Charles Lamont Robertson announced his intention to leave the colony [E&DRG 31 Jan 1815].. In March 1815 the published list of those quitting the colony included Mrs. Robertson (widow of the late Hon. W. ...
Sac. No. 5404. In Bank. January 27, 1941.]. FLORA J. WILLIAMS, Appellant, v. WELLS FARGO BANK & UNION TRUST COMPANY (a Banking Corporation) et al., Respondents. COUNSEL Edwin H. Williams for Appellant. George H. Johnston for Respondents. OPINION EDMONDS, J. In a partition action brought by Flora J.

The controversy concerns 310 acres of land, one-quarter of which, the superior court decided, is owned by the petitioner. The remaining three- fourths was decreed to be owned by the respondent Wells Fargo Bank & Union Trust Company, as trustee. The court further determined that the petitioner is entitled to partition, but that as it cannot be made in kind ...
