The maltose system in Escherichia coli consists of cell envelope-associated proteins and enzymes that catalyze the uptake and utilization of maltose and alpha,1-4-linked maltodextrins. The presence of these sugars in the growth medium induces the maltose system (exogenous induction), even though only maltotriose has been identified in vitro as an inducer(More)
The development, differentiation, and pattern formation of isolated distal parts of avian leg buds that had grown ectopically on the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) or in the coelomic cavity were studied. The grafts grown on the CAM invariably gave rise to cartilage and soft connective tissue. In some cases muscle tissue was also found. The CAM grafts did(More)
True accessory nuclei with the characteristic “double” membrane structure have been observed in the oocytes of the dipterans (Nematocera) Phryne cincta and P. fenestralis. They seem to arise from proliferations of the nuclear membrane. Although they often cling to the nucleus after their formation, they differ from it in certain structural details; their(More)
Traits related to fatness, important as economic factors in pork production, are associated with serious diseases in humans. Genetical genomics is a useful approach for studying the effects of genetic variation at the molecular level in biological systems. Here we applied a whole-genome association analysis to hepatic gene expression traits, focusing on(More)
Human hand anlagen of different developmental stages are studied light and scanning electron microscopically. The findings are compared with experimental and ultrastructural results obtained from avian limb anlagen. Shaping, cell differentiation and the spatial arrangement of different cells are found to be the basic processes of hand development. The(More)
This article reports on a study of laws, regulations, and policies governing Immunization Information Systems (IIS, also known as "immunization registries") in states and selected urban areas of the United States. The study included a search of relevant statutes, administrative codes and published attorney general opinions/findings, an online questionnaire(More)
malQ mutants, lacking amylomaltase, cannot grown on maltose. However, when maltose is present in the medium, it can be accumulated to high internal levels. In a subsequent slow reaction, accumulated maltose becomes acetylated and leaks back into the medium. The enzyme responsible for this acetylation uses acetyl-CoA as acetyl donor and can be measured in(More)
