Sodium dodecylsulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis reveals that zein prepared from normal maize inbred (Zea mays L.) contains six separable components. Z1 and Z2 are the predominant species, with molecular weights of 21,800 and 19,000 daltons. Amino acid analysis of these two components shows that both are rich in glutamic acid, leucine, and proline,(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation is associated with higher mortality. Identification of causes of death and contemporary risk factors for all-cause mortality may guide interventions. METHODS AND RESULTS In the Rivaroxaban Once Daily Oral Direct Factor Xa Inhibition Compared with Vitamin K Antagonism for Prevention of Stroke and Embolism Trial in Atrial(More)
During development, the ribonuclease activity of maize endo sperm homozygous for the opaque-2 gene increased earlier and, after a longer period of exponential increase, was much higher finally than in normal endosperm. The maximum difference was about sixfold and occurred 22 to 25 days after pollination. Heterozygotes on day 23 did not show a comparable in(More)
The elevated ribonuclease activity produced in the endosperm of a maize (Zea mays L.) inbred, W64A, by homozygous opaque-2, results from a more than doubled rate of ribonuclease accumulation occurring prior to 16 days post-pollination; after 16 days the rates in opaque-2 and normal are the same, suggesting that opaque-2 is no longer active. The pattern of(More)
The article is a survey of plants foods and drugs that Greeks and Romans thought to be aphrodisiac and to have a specific effect on the male libido. The article is a useful support to study the sexual therapy in ancient world.
An outbreak of the Norwalk-like virus at an acute hospital in October affected 147 patients and 200 staff. It was brought under control within two weeks, following the establishment of a team to manage the incident. Some day surgery was cancelled, but no inpatient operations were affected. The public was discouraged from visiting the hospital during the(More)
