TLDR
Slices of kidney, 3 mm thick, are fixed in 10% formalin containing 5% K2Cr2O7 and 2.5% acetic acid for 18 hr, washed 8 hr in running water, and 6 μ paraffin sections prepared as usual. Expand

  • 15 November 1973
TLDR
The temperature dependence over the range 5–25°C of State III respiration as well as succinoxidase and NADH oxidase activities is significantly less for fish than for mammalian or avian mitochondria, and the possible adaptive value is discussed. Expand

  • 15 March 1973
TLDR
Overall thermostability of these respiratory enzyme systems is not obviously correlated with the phylogenetic history of the species but does in most cases correspond to the thermal environment to which the species is adapted. Expand
Effect of α-particle and X-ray irradiation on DNA synthesis in tissue cultures

  • 15 August 1961
TLDR
The results of these experiments show that the fraction of cells in a culture synthesizing DNA is not markedly affected by α-particles and X-rays in the dose used in the experiment, consistent with the view that the target may possibly be the DNA template (or maybe DNP because of the high value for the molecular weight in one case).

  • 15 March 1973
TLDR
In the fish and amphibian species a wide range of thermostability was found which appeared to be correlated with the normal thermal environments of the animals, and at least in the frog enzyme stability was not altered by acclimating the animals to different temperatures. Expand

  • 1 July 1953
Abstract Experiments on the inactivation of desoxyribonuclease by deuteron and electron bombardment are described, and it is deduced that the sensitive volume of the molecule is a sphere of radius caExpand
Stability of amphibian monoamine oxidase and the inhibitory action of semicarbazide
Abstract 1. (1) Amphibian monoamine oxidase differes markedly from the corresponding enzyme in mammalian tissue suspensions in at least two respects. In the first place it is progressivelyExpand
The inactivation of monomolecular films of protein and its relation to the lifetime of active radicals formed in water by x-radiation.
  • C. Smith
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Archives of biochemistry and biophysics
  • 1 June 1954
TLDR
The half-life time of the radicals produced in the water by the x-radiations, and assumed to be responsible for the inactivation, can be calculated to be between about 10 −5 and 10 −6 sec. Expand
