We investigated the involvement of birds in the ecology of the western black-legged tick, Ixodes pacificus, and its associated zoonotic bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi and Anaplasma phagocytophilum, at two interior coast-range study sites in northern California. Anaplasma phagocytophilum, the agent of granulocytic anaplasmosis (GA), and B. burgdorferi s.s.,(More)
Larval and nymphal western blacklegged tick, Ixodes pacificus Cooley & Kohls (Acari: Ixodidae), were collected from birds, rodents, and lizards at Quail Ridge Reserve located in Napa County in northwestern California. Species from three vertebrate classes were sampled simultaneously from two transects during two consecutive spring seasons. Feeding larval(More)
Rat liver poly(A)-containing RNA was translated in an ascites cell-free system. Labeled protein precipitable by antibody directed against rat serum albumin was identified as pre-proalbumin based on its size and partial NHZ-terminal sequence. However, when an ascites membrane fraction was added to the translation reaction, the albumin antibody-precipitable(More)
Rat liver poly(A)-containing RNA greatly stimulated incorporation of radioactive amino acids into protein when added to a wheat germ in vitro translation system. Approximately 7% of the labeled synthetic product was precipitated following indirect immunoprecipitation with antisera to rat serum albumin. Analysis of this material, and of the cyanogen bromide(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective was to compare short-term effectiveness of aripiprazole with three other second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) in the treatment of first-episode psychosis. METHOD In a naturalistic, 'single-blind' design, 60 subjects experiencing their first psychotic episode were treated for 8 weeks with aripiprazole (n = 19), risperidone (n =(More)
Total rat liver poly(A+)-RNA has been isolated from phenobarbital-treated rats and fractionated on sucrose gradients to enrich for glutathione S-transferase B mRNA. Poly(A+)-RNA fractions were assayed for glutathione S-transferase B mRNA activity by in vitro translation and those fractions enriched in glutathione S-transferase B mRNA were used as a template(More)
