Fluorescence of Porphyridium cruentum in state I (cells equilibrated in light absorbed predominantly by Photosystem I) and in state II (cells equilibrated in light absorbed appreciably by Photosystem II) was examined to determine how the distribution of excitation energy was altered in the transitions between state I and state II. Low temperature emission(More)
The ndhC and ORF159 genes of the maize plastid DNA (ptDNA) were sequenced and maize ORF159 was used to screen a library of genomic DNA of the blue-green alga Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. The cyanobacterial gene homologous to ORF159 (ORF157) was isolated and sequenced. In sequencing the region upstream of ORF157, reading frames with homology to the ndhC and(More)
An analysis of the antibody titers to toxoplasmosis for 22,845 pregnant women in the Collaborative Perinatal Project was conducted in relation to clinical and laboratory findings in the mothers and children through 7 years of age. More than 900 observations were considered for each mother and child. The major findings were in the children and included a(More)
Recent efforts to improve hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC) for use in monoclonal antibody (mAb) purification have focused on two approaches: optimization of resin pore size to facilitate mAb mass transport, and use of novel hydrophobic charge induction (HCIC) mixed mode ligands that allow capture of mAbs under low salt conditions. We evaluated(More)
Cells of Porphyridium cruentum were grown in different colors of light which would be absorbed primarily by chlorophyll (Chl) (red and blue light) or by the phycobilisomes (green or two intensities of cool-white fluorescent light), and samples of these cells were frozen to -196 C for measurements of absorption and fluorescence emission spectra. Cells grown(More)
UNLABELLED A radiolabeled human neutrophil elastase inhibitor (EPI-HNE-2) may represent an improved nuclear medicine imaging agent for inflammation and infection. This peptide displays rapid pharmacokinetics due to its low molecular weight and localizes specifically on neutrophil elastase released in inflammatory sites by activated neutrophils. METHODS In(More)
