UNLABELLED The visual analog scale (VAS) has been used to assess the efficacy of pain management regimens in patients with acute postoperative pain, but its usefulness has not been confirmed in postoperative pain studies. We studied 60 subjects in the immediate postoperative period. The specific data collected were: VAS scores versus an 11-point numeric(More)
Acknowledgements I have had the great fortune of working with two mentors during my graduate studies, Tony Movshon and Eero Simoncelli. I hold profound admiration for the excitement, insight, integrity, creativity, and rigor that these two men bring to science and I consider the lessons that I have learned from them invaluable. If I had to do it over, I(More)
To understand the molecular mechanisms induced by stress that contribute to the development of tolerance in eukaryotic cells, the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans has been chosen as a model system. Here, the response of A. nidulans germlings to heat shock is reported. The heat treatment dramatically increased the concentration of trehalose and(More)
Transcriptome profiling was conducted to detect genes whose expression is significantly changed in an Arabidopsis mutant deficient in S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase1 (SAHH1) during early seedling development when mutant phenotypes could be clearly observed. A total of 2,040 differentially expressed genes were identified, representing approximately 6.7 %(More)
BACKGROUND Pyridine-2,6-bis(thiocarboxylic acid) (pdtc) is a small secreted metabolite that has a high affinity for transition metals, increases iron uptake efficiency by 20% in Pseudomonas stutzeri, has the ability to reduce both soluble and mineral forms of iron, and has antimicrobial activity towards several species of bacteria. Six GenBank sequences(More)
