Glucose- or nitrogen-starved cultures of Escherichia coli exhibited enhanced resistance to heat (57 degrees C) or H2O2 (15 mM) challenge, compared with their exponentially growing counterparts. The degree of resistance increased with the time for which the cells were starved prior to the challenge, with 4 h of starvation providing the maximal protection.(More)
Stationary-phase Escherichia coli cultures showed enhanced osmotic resistance as compared with cultures in mid-logarithmic growth or preadapted to osmotic stress. The osmotolerance that developed during starvation or osmotic adaptation required de novo protein synthesis. Of the 22 polypeptides induced during osmotic shock, five were also starvation proteins.
Arterial blood gases were measured in 62 patients, none of whom was critically ill, to determine the effect of transnasal fiberoptic bronchoscopy on oxygenation status. Blood samples were obtained at regular intervals during the procedure. Thirty-four patients who were bronchoscoped while breathing room air had a significant drop in the arterial P02(More)
During the past two decades, we have had the opportunity to study a large number of patients with the rare hemolytic anemia, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. Sixteen surgical procedures have been performed upon ten patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. From this experience, we have developed certain recommendations for preoperative(More)
Escherichia coli starvation proteins include several heat shock proteins whose induction by heat is controlled by the minor sigma factor, sigma 32. The level of sigma 32 increased in wild-type E. coli upon starvation, and three sigma 32-controlled heat shock proteins (DnaK, GroEL, and HtpG) were not induced during starvation in an isogenic delta rpoH(More)
In order to study the function of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) immediate early gene 2 (ie2) (UL122) gene products made at late times during infection, cDNA clones were isolated from an expression library made with 74 h post-infection mRNA. Based on screening of the library, 1% of transcripts in infected cells at this time were ie2 region-specific, and(More)
A long-term study of 17 patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria revealed an unexpectedly high incidence of functional and anatomic renal abormalities. All patients demonstrated varying degrees of hematuria and proteinuria distinct from hemoglobinuria. All patients also had granular casts in multiple urinalyses. Evaluation of renal function(More)
This is a study of the ventilatory functions of 1,805 normal Mexican-American, white, and black students of six public schools in Houston, Texas, with ages ranging from 7 to 20. A roll-seal piston type spirometer was used. The best performed forced vital capacity curve of each student was selected by the computer program from which the following(More)
