The minimal structure in the heat-stable inhibitor protein of cAMP-dependent protein kinase required for a low nanomolar potency of inhibition is the peptide Thr6-Tyr-Ala-Asp-Phe-Ile-Ala-Ser-Gly-Arg-Thr-Gly-Arg-Arg-Asn-Ala-+ ++Ile22-NH2 (PKI-(6-22)-amide). While primary structural determinants for interaction with the protein kinase are distributed(More)
An explicit statement of a statistic which is a nonparametric analogue to one-way MANOVA is presented. The statistic is a multivariate extension of the nonparametric Kruskal-Wallis test (1952). The large sample reference distribution of the test statistic is derived together with a set of computational formulas for the test statistic. In addition two post(More)
Cognitively intact anxious elderly subjects were randomly assigned to either a progressive muscle relaxation-training condition or control condition (ns = 15) and then completed selected subtests from the Wechsler Memory Scale--Revised. Despite significant reductions in state anxiety in the relaxation group, no significant differences were detected between(More)
The authors examined the roles of depression and attachment to fathers in college women's eating dysfunctions. Three-hundred six undergraduate women completed (1) a diagnostic measure of eating dysfunctions that categorized them as asymptomatic, symptomatic but not eating disordered, or eating disordered; (2) 3 dimensional measures of attachment to fathers;(More)
For elderly volunteers (10 high and 10 low on anxiety) scores on the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children, Mini-Mental State Examination, and subtests of the Wechsler Memory Scale--Revised suggested anxiety adversely affected sustained attention of these elderly persons, but may not be evident on verbal and figural memory tasks.
Fishbein's Theory of Reasoned Action was used to formulate a persuasive communication in an attempt to influence unclassified American college students' beliefs, attitudes, intentions, and behaviors regarding signing up for a career as a registered nurse. A two-stage cluster sample was used to assign 90 male and female students to either an experimental or(More)
To determine the content, structure, objectives, and organization of death education curricula in American medical schools, a cross-sectional survey was developed. The data, representing 100% of the population, demonstrated that such curricula expanded markedly during the past decade. The developmental stimuli for death education, sources of funding, and(More)
PKI(6-22)amide is a 17 residue peptide corresponding to the active portion of the heat-stable inhibitor of cAMP-dependent protein kinase. The peptide is a potent (Ki = 1.6 nM), competitive inhibitor of the enzyme. The photoreactive peptide analog (4-azidophenylalanine10)PKI(6-22)amide was synthesized in both its non-radiolabeled and tritiated forms by(More)
