Mutations in the RNA Granule Component TDRD7 Cause Cataract and Glaucoma
It is demonstrated that Tdrd7 nullizygosity in mouse causes cataracts, as well as glaucoma and an arrest in spermatogenesis, and a role for RGs in vertebrate organogenesis is demonstrated.

Gamma-ray spectroscopy experiments for levels in 39K below 8.4 MeV excitation
The gamma-ray spectroscopy of sixty excited states in 39K below an excitation energy of 8.4 MeV has been studied. The data were obtained mainly from the 36Ar+ alpha reaction at beam energies between…

Decay scheme of excited states in 67Ge
Excited states in 67Ge were studied using the reaction 64Zn( alpha ,n gamma ). Excitation functions for the production of 67Ge determined the Q value for this reaction to be -8993+or-5 keV.…

The end-point energy of the superallowed Fermi decay of 38mK
The threshold for the 38Ar(p,n)38K reaction has been measured relative to the thresholds for 10B(p,n)10C and 14N(p,n)14O. The value deduced for the 38mK beta endpoint energy, 5020.71+or-0.85 keV,…
