UNLABELLED The purpose of our study was to assess the onset and quality of muscle paralysis and intubation conditions with succinylcholine (Sch) or rocuronium (Roc) during rapid-sequence induction. Patients were randomly assigned to receive thiopental (5 mg/kg) and Sch (1.5 mg/kg) or thiopental (5 mg/kg) and Roc (1.2 mg/kg). The anesthesiologists performing(More)
Temperature-sensitive (ts) mutants of vesicular stomatitis virus, New Jersey serotype, classified in complementation group E contain lesions in the NS gene, which manifest as marked electrophoretic mobility differences of the mutant NS proteins in SDS-polyacrylamide gels. We have cloned full-length cDNA copies of the mutant NS mRNAs, and have determined(More)
The gene, epn-1, encoding endothiapepsin (Epn), an aspartic protease (AspP) synthesized and secreted by the ascomycete fungus responsible for chestnut blight, Cryphonectria (Endothia) parasitica, was identified and characterized. Inspection of the nucleotide and deduced amino acid (aa) sequences revealed perfect agreement with the experimentally derived(More)
BACKGROUND Resuscitation guidelines caution against extreme extension or flexion of an infant's head because tracheal obstruction may occur. No data support this recommendation. The authors therefore examined the dimensions of the tracheal lumen in neutral, extended, and flexed head positions in infants undergoing general endotracheal anesthesia for(More)
There have been inconsistencies in the literature regarding asymmetrical neural control and results of experiments using TMS techniques. Therefore, the aim of this study was to further our understanding of the neural relationships that may underlie performance asymmetry with respect to the distal muscles of the hand using a TMS stimulus–response curve(More)
A full length cDNA copy of the NS mRNA of the Missouri strain (Hazelhurst subtype, New Jersey serotype) of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) has been cloned and sequenced. The mRNA is 856 nucleotides long (excluding polyadenylic acid) and encodes a protein of 274 amino acids (mol. wt. 31 000). Comparison with the NS gene of the Ogden strain (Concan subtype,(More)
We have determined the organization within the terminal domains of the major large double-stranded RNA genetic elements associated with the hypovirulent strain EP713 of the chestnut blight pathogen Cryphonectria (Endothia) parasitica. Only the polyadenylated strand contained long open reading frames. Furthermore, only RNA of the same polarity as the(More)
