One of the most widely cited features of the neural phenotype of autism is reduced "integrity" of long-range white matter tracts, a claim based primarily on diffusion imaging studies. However, many prior studies have small sample sizes and/or fail to address differences in data quality between those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and typical(More)
We have studied the growth on acetate, the metabolism of acetate enzymes, and respiration of a series of citrate synthase mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The results confirmed and extended our previous observation that cytosolic citrate synthase is not necessary for growth on acetate. Deletion of mitochondrial citrate synthase (CS1) protein resulted in(More)
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of DNA was used to detect the etiologic agent of murine typhus, Rickettsia typhi, in experimentally infected adult fleas. A primer pair derived from the 17-kilodalton antigen sequence of typhus and spotted fever group rickettsiae was used to amplify a 434-base-pair (bp) fragment of the genome of the murine(More)
This study examined sequential associations between child play and caregiver talk in 98 caregiver-child dyads (Mmental age  = 14 months). Fifty dyads included a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Analyses revealed sequential associations between child play and caregiver follow-in (FI) utterances (utterances related to the child's attentional focus)(More)
