This investigation analyzed the effects of tactual and kinesthetic resources on the social studies achievement and attitude test scores and shortand long-term memory of fourthgrade suburban students. Students’ learning-style perceptual preferences were identified using the Learning Style Inventory and subsequently youngsters were taught social-studies(More)
Uterine fibroids are an important problem for women of reproductive age. Although hysterectomy has been the traditional treatment for fibroids, many women are interested in a less invasive therapy. Magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) is a new technique for treating a variety of solid tumors. It has been tested and approved by the U.S. Food(More)
The protein YbiV from Escherichia coli K12 MG1655 is a hypothetical protein with sequence homology to the haloacid dehalogenase (HAD) superfamily of proteins. Although numerous members of this family have been identified, the functions of few are known. Using the crystal structure, sequence analysis, and biochemical assays, we have characterized YbiV as a(More)
We have determined the crystal structure of a phosphatase with a unique substrate binding domain from Thermotoga maritima, TM0651 (gi 4981173), at 2.2 A resolution by selenomethionine single-wavelength anomalous diffraction (SAD) techniques. TM0651 is a member of the haloacid dehalogenase (HAD) superfamily, with sequence homology to trehalose-6-phosphate(More)
The structure of an O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) from the thermophile Methanococcus jannaschii has been determined using multinuclear multidimensional NMR spectroscopy. The structure is similar to homologs from other organisms that have been determined by crystallography, with some variation in the N-terminal domain. The C-terminal domain(More)
BACKGROUND Within NHS North West England there are 24 primary care trusts (PCTs), all with access to different types of library services. This study aims to evaluate the impact the type of library service has on online resource usage. METHODOLOGY We conducted a large-scale retrospective quantitative study across all PCT staff in NHS NW England using(More)
Local newspapers, radio and TV are always on the lookout for stories, especially during an election campaign. So if you are taking part in the campaign by meeting candidates or arranging workplace visits, make sure everyone knows about it.
BACKGROUND Intestinal failure-associated liver disease causes significant mortality in patients with short bowel syndrome. Steatosis, a major component of intestinal failure-associated liver disease has been shown to persist even after weaning from parenteral nutrition. We sought to determine whether steatosis occurs in our murine model of short bowel(More)
