Before theoretical models can be built and before meaningful empirical research can be performed, a careful process of identifying the appropriate research questions and problems must be undertaken. This is the current state of research regarding the relatively new area(More)
The external cuticular surface of nematodes, which resembles cellular membranes in certain ways, appears to deteriorate with age. For example, when the permeabilities to radioactive water of young and old nematodes were compared, and the data were corrected for the different surface: volume ratios, the older nematodes were significantly more permeable. In(More)

The Archaebacterium Thermoplasma acidophilum has a histone-like protein (HTa) abundantly associated with its deoxyribonucleic acid. Each native tetrameric complex of HTa contains 20 phenylalanine residues, 4 tyrosine residues, and no tryptophan. When the protein was excited by radiation at 252 nm, which is a wavelength absorbed predominantly by(More)
During economic downturns, pressure is placed on information technology (IT) managers to find ways to make their use of technology more efficient.
