The [2-14C]deoxyglucose method was used to identify the cerebral areas related to vision in the rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta). This was achieved by comparing glucose utilization in a visually stimulated with that in a visually deafferented hemisphere. The cortical areas related to vision included the entire expanse of striate, prestriate, and inferior(More)
We compared the performances of the Third Wave Technology Invader method and the Digene Hybrid Capture 2 assay to detect high-risk human papillomaviruses in 87 cervical brushing specimens submitted in Cytyc ThinPrep media. Two different methods for the extraction of DNA from squamous epithelial cells were also evaluated.
DNA helicases (Hel) play a role in a number of processes involving DNA strand separation, including replication, repair, recombination and transcription. Rearrangement of receptor genes, which occurs in immature lymphocytes, could also be mediated by Hel. We report here the cloning from murine fetal thymus tissue of a novel putative Hel containing seven(More)
Ablation of inferior temporal (IT) cortex, particularly of the posterior region, produces severe impairment in pattern discrimination learning. The present study examined whether this impairment is associated with raised pattern discrimination thresholds. Groups of three monkeys each were given either anterior IT, posterior IT, or foveal striate lesions, or(More)
The minor lymphocyte stimulating (MLS) superantigens of mice are encoded by open reading frames (ORFs) in the 3' long terminal repeats (LTRs) of endogenous mouse mammary tumor viruses. By stimulating all T cells bearing particular TCR V beta proteins, these viral superantigens (v-SAGs) exert profound effects on T cell development and function. We have(More)
The activity of Src-related protein-tyrosine kinases is repressed by the phosphorylation of a conserved carboxyl-terminal tyrosine by another cytoplasmic protein-tyrosine kinase termed p50csk. In this study, we characterize Ntk, a protein-tyrosine kinase bearing striking similarities to p50csk. Like p50csk, Ntk possesses Src homology 3 and Src homology 2(More)
Hepatobiliary dysfunction is recognized as a major adverse effect of total parenteral nutrition (TPN). It is unknown if this is caused by a deficiency or toxicity of the TPN solution or the underlying pathophysiology of disease processes that require TPN therapy. This article presents algorithms for evaluating abnormal liver tests in patients on TPN and(More)
