The Giemsa banding patterns of the chromosomes of 4 species of Procyonidae, 13 of Viverridae, and 6 of Felidae have been studied. The patterns have all been related to the basic felid karyotype. Each procyonid and viverrid has a distinctive karyotype, whereas some felids have indistinguishable karyotypes even when banded. Extensive interfamilial G-banding(More)
OBJECTIVES The Minnesota Heart Health Program was a research and demonstration project designed to reduce risk factors for heart disease in whole communities. This paper describes smoking-specific interventions and outcomes. METHODS Three pairs of matched communities were included in the study. After baseline surveys, one community in each pair received a(More)
The Minnesota Heart Health Program was a community trial of cardiovascular disease prevention methods that was conducted from 1980 to 1990 in three Upper Midwestern communities with three matched comparison communities. A 5- to 6-year intervention program used community-wide and individual health education in an attempt to decrease population risk. A major(More)
In a number of primate animals contrast medium was injected intraperitoneally to diagnose hernias as well as evaluate the normal anatomical relationships. The technical considerations are discussed. Contrast herniography and peritoneography appear useful under certain clinical circumstances.
The glucose receptor 1 developed by Shinkai was synthesized by known methods and with modifications involving the final synthetic step, installation of the phenylboronic acid moieties. Binding of the bis(alpha-hydroxycarbolxylate), tartrate, was assessed and compared to the corresponding bis(diol), erythritol, as well as the corresponding(More)
Relative effects of Beef Quality Assurance (BQA)-related defects in market beef and dairy cows and bulls on selling price at auction was evaluated during 2008. The presence and severity of 23 BQA-related traits were determined during sales in Idaho, California, and Utah. Overall, 18,949 unique lots consisting of 23,479 animals were assessed during 125 dairy(More)
Ceramides (CERs) are integral parts of the intercellular lipid lamellae of the stratum corneum (SC), which is responsible for the barrier function of the skin. Many skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis are associated with the depletion or disturbance of the level of CERs in the SC. Administration of an exogenous novel dimeric ceramide(More)
