Bacteria and Archaea play critical roles in marine energy fluxes and nutrient cycles by incorporating and redistributing dissolved organic matter and inorganic nutrients in the oceans. How these microorganisms do this work at the level of the expressed protein is known only from a few studies of targeted lineages. We used comparative membrane metaproteomics(More)
Assessed the utility of two brief neuropsychological tests in screening patients referred to a neuropsychological consulting service. Forty-three cortically impaired and 19 neurologically intact Ss completed the Cognitive Capacity Screening Exam (CCSE) and the Memory-for-Designs (MFD). The results of these tests analyzed individually and in combination were(More)
Bacteria and archaea in the dark ocean (>200 m) comprise 0.3-1.3 billion tons of actively cycled marine carbon. Many of these microorganisms have the genetic potential to fix inorganic carbon (autotrophs) or assimilate single-carbon compounds (methylotrophs). We identified the functions of autotrophic and methylotrophic microorganisms in a vent plume at(More)
Phytoplankton growth rates are limited by the supply of iron (Fe) in approximately one third of the open ocean, with major implications for carbon dioxide sequestration and carbon (C) biogeochemistry. To date, understanding how alteration of Fe supply changes phytoplankton physiology has focused on traditional metrics such as growth rate, elemental(More)
Ocean acidification as a result of increased anthropogenic CO2 emissions is occurring in marine and estuarine environments worldwide. The coastal ocean experiences additional daily and seasonal fluctuations in pH that can be lower than projected end-of-century open ocean pH reductions. In order to assess the impact of ocean acidification on marine(More)
Shotgun proteomics offers an efficient means to characterize proteins in a complex mixture, particularly when sufficient genomic resources are available. In order to assess the practical application of shotgun proteomics in the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas), liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry was used to characterize the gill(More)
Environmental meta-omics is rapidly expanding as sequencing capabilities improve, computing technologies become more accessible, and associated costs are reduced. The in situ snapshots of marine microbial life afforded by these data provide a growing knowledge of the functional roles of communities in ecosystem processes. Metaproteomics allows for the(More)
Developed and evaluated a home-based contracting program to determine its effect on the compliance rates of discharged alcohol patients to a disulfiram (antabuse) regimen. The three comparison groups included (a) no contract/no recording; (b) contract/recording; and (c) contract/recording plus instructions for positive reinforcement. Twenty-five patients(More)
