In the maturation of the Escherichia coli antibiotic Microcin B17 (MccB17), the McbA prepro-antibiotic is modified post-translationally by the multimeric microcin synthetase complex (composed of the McbB, -C, and -D proteins), which cyclizes four cysteines and four serines to thiazoles and oxazoles, respectively. Herein, we report the purification of(More)
Fifteen patients who demonstrated condylar sag after intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy for the correction of mandibular prognathism were treated nonsurgically to establish the desired postoperative occlusion. A mean inferior displacement of 3.33 mm and anterior displacement of 2.18 mm were observed tomographically after surgery. Postoperatively, a(More)

Twenty fresh canine hearts were used to compare the peak left ventricular pressures required to disrupt prosthetic mitral valves sutured in place with horizontal mattress sutures using either subannular or supraannular placed pledgets. Separate groups were developed to determine the effect of leaving the whole mitral valve apparatus or only the posterior(More)
