Here is the answer sent by Mr Hamish McWilliam from EBI (where the MEDLINE
server is running):

The difference is OpenBQS adds a wildcard when it builds the SRS query:
> - [medline-AllText:actb*] gives 228 entries
> - [medline-AllText:actb] gives 150 entries
> Performing the same query at PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/)
> gives similar answers:
> - "actb*" gives 255 entries
> - "actb" gives 165 entries
> The remaining differences are probably due to slight differences in the
> PubMed data at NCBI and the exported MEDLINE data.
