Temperature has been shown to have a significant effect on swimming performance in teleost fish. This thermal dependence has usually been attributed to correlated changes in muscle contractile physiology. However, the physical properties of all materials, including both water and living tissues, are profoundly affected by changes in temperature. In(More)
Gluconobacter oxydans ATCC 9937 was subjected to transposon mutagenesis using Tn5. A non-pigmented mutant was shown to be defective in gluconic acid dehydrogenase and to produce gluconic acid from glucose, whereas the parent strain produced 2, 5-diketogluconic acid. Cloning and sequencing of the region containing the Tn5 insertion showed that the insertion(More)
Two investigations examined qualitative features of clock drawings in normal aging and Alzheimer's disease (AD), using standard 3-point and 10-point scales and an expanded 16-point scoring system. In the first study, clock drawings by healthy adults aged 50-70 were found to be significantly better than those of adults aged 70-95 using all three scoring(More)
