Assessing the effect of interventions on quality of life in cardiac patients lacks sensitivity because there is no specifically validated scale for measuring depression in cardiac patients. A questionnaire of 35 items (selected for face validity) was given to 246 cardiac outpatients (age 59.3 +/- 14.1 years, 159 male, 87 female). The Beck Depression Scale(More)
We have cloned three linked genes serine-1 (ser-1), proline-1 (pro-1) and acetate-2 (ace-2) that lie near the centromere on the right arm of linkage group III (LGIIIR) of Neurospora crassa. The ser-1 gene was cloned by sib selection. A chromosomal walk that spans 205 kilobases (kb) was initiated from ser-1. Complementation analysis with clones isolated(More)
Serine hydroxymethyltransferase (SHMT) occupies a central position in one-carbon (C1) metabolism, catalyzing the reaction of serine and tetrahydrofolate to yield glycine and 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate. Methylenetetrahydrofolate serves as a donor of C1 units for the synthesis of numerous compounds, including purines, thymidylate, lipids, and methionine.(More)
Even though it has been over 20 years since Spence and Robbins (1992) first showed perfectionism and workaholism to be closely related, the relationship between perfectionism and workaholism is still under-researched. In particular, it has remained unclear why perfectionism is linked to workaholism. Using data from 131 employees, this study—examining(More)
delta 1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase (P5CR; [L-proline: NAD(P+) 5-oxidoreductase]; EC 1.5.1.2) catalyzes the final step in proline biosynthesis. We have shown that the proline-1 (pro-1) locus of Neurospora crassa encodes P5CR. The pro-1 gene was localized to a 3.2 kb region by complementation of (restoration of proline-independent growth to) a proline(More)
