The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is a cAMP-activated chloride channel critical to intestinal anion secretion. In addition to phosphorylation, vesicle traffic regulates CFTR in some epithelial cells. Studies of cultured intestinal cells are conflicting regarding the role of cAMP-dependent vesicle traffic in regulating chloride(More)
The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) channel is regulated by cAMP-dependent vesicle traffic and exocytosis to the apical membrane in some cell types, but this has not been demonstrated in the intestinal crypt. The distribution of CFTR, lactase (control), and fluid secretion were determined in rat jejunum after cAMP activation in(More)
The nutrition label format currently used by consumers to make dietary-related decisions presents significant information-processing demands for integration-based decisions; however, those demands were not considered as primary factors when the format was adopted. Labels designed in accordance with known principles of cognitive psychology might enhance the(More)
We examined 300 stipes of leavens coming from various material. Among these we identified 264 brances belonging to Candida king, utilizing the test for pseudomicelio production. Combininb with this test that of clamidospore production, the auxonogramma, culture media, we arrived to the classification of the species: C. Albicans 71%, C. Tropicalis 15.8%; C.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Individuals with Alzheimer disease (AD) have a higher risk of falls than their cognitively intact peers. This pilot study was designed to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of a small-group balance exercise program for individuals with AD in a day center environment. METHODS Seven participants met the inclusion criteria:(More)
The CDF-II experiment is a multipurpose detector designed to study a wide range of processes observed in the high energy proton-antiproton collisions produced by the Fermilab Tevatron. With event rates greater than 1MHz, the CDF-II trigger system is crucial for selecting interesting events for subsequent analysis. This document provides an overview of the(More)
Hand dermatitis as a result of frequent exposure to water and cleansing agents is a significant problem in the health care industry. In developing prevention efforts to address this problem, it is necessary to make appropriate recommendations for moisturizers that are compatible with latex gloves and/or handwashing agents that contain chlorhexidine(More)
