This study attempts to determine the clinical manifestations, severity and immunological features of JIA and its influence on growth and associated cardiac involvement in children below 16 years of age. This is a cross sectional study in a tertiary referral center on 50 consecutive children below the age of 16 years. Each patient was thoroughly examined and(More)
Inhibition of expression of cell adhesion molecules (CAM), including intercellular CAM-1 (ICAM-1), vascular CAM-1 (VCAM-1), and E-selectin, has been shown to be important in controlling various inflammatory diseases. The cell adhesion proteins are induced by various inflammatory cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interleukin-1, and bacterial(More)
Membrane-bound alkaline phosphatase of Bacillus licheniformis 749/c is derepressed by glucose in complex and chemically defined media. In the presence of lactate, pyruvate, or succinate the synthesis is repressed. The lactate repression neither affects total protein synthesis nor inhibits penicillinase synthesis. Thus, carbon sources specifically influence(More)

Increasingly organizations are outsourcing their business processes to offshore locations. The goals cited include cost savings, achieving strategic focus, alleviating skills shortages and seeking to implement best practices. Current reports from actual outsourcing case studies indicate that many organizational goals remain unfulfilled. This paper proposes(More)
Saline-washed cells of Bacillus licheniformis strain 749/C (constitutive for penicillinase) were able to release exopenicillinase in the presence of concentrations of chloramphenicol that prevented protein synthesis completely. The release reaction was strongly pH-dependent, occurring at a faster rate at alkaline pH in anionic or cationic buffers than at(More)
The plasma membrane of Listeria monocytogenes strain 42 was prepared by osmotic lysis of protoplasts with tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane (Tris) buffer, pH 8.2, containing MgCl(2) and glucose, followed by washing with NaCl and MgCl(2) in Tris buffer. Electron microscopy showed that the preparation was not contaminated with cytoplasmic material. The membrane(More)
Cells of uninduced Bacillus licheniformis (strain 749) in mid-logarithmic phase have no extensive intracytoplasmic membrane. After induction with cephalosporin C, characteristic organelles that contain tubules and vesicles with single-layered membranes and no visible internal substructure can be seen in thin sections in the periplasm. A magnoconstitutive(More)
