The structure of cercal sensilla, the cercal nerve and the central projections of the cercal sensory nerve of a notopteran (Grylloblatta sp.) are described and compared with other orthopteroid insects in which the cercal sensory system and central connections are well known. The cercal sensilla are similar to those of gryllids and blattids, but the gross… (More)
CTL derived from (C3H x B6.K1)F1 animals were sensitized against L cells that express the transfected gene product Q10d/Ld. These CTL were highly crossreactive against three other class I molecules, H-2Kbm1, H-2Ld, and H-2Kd. In an attempt to define this crossreactive epitope it was noted that between 25 and 39% of amino acids in the alpha helices and… (More)
Janus kinase (JAK) enzymes are involved in cell signaling pathways activated by various cytokines dysregulated in allergy. The objective of this study was to determine whether the novel JAK inhibitor oclacitinib could reduce the activity of cytokines implicated in canine allergic skin disease. Using isolated enzyme systems and in vitro human or canine cell… (More)
During Northern Hemisphere winters, the West Coast of North America is battered by extratropical storms. The impact of these storms is of paramount concern to California, where aging water supply and flood protection infrastructures are challenged by increased standards for urban flood protection, an unusually variable weather regime, and projections of… (More)

Population structure of melon-headed whales (Peponocephala electra) in the Hawaiian Archipelago: Evidence of multiple populations based on photo identification.
The finger extension game was designed in response to a learning exercise by two students on preclinical assignment. It is an activity designed to facilitate the rehabilitation process of the finger extensors on a subcorti-cal level. Occupational therapy literature emphasizes exercise techniques rather than incorporating activities with exercise. This game… (More)
This research was partially funded through a grant from the McDowell Foundation. However, the points of view and opinions expressed in project documents are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Foundation. The purpose of the Dr. Stirling McDowell Foundation for Research into Teaching is to fund research, inquiry and… (More)
Electron microscopic studies show that transplanted segments of sensory axons of varying lengths degenerate within 7-14 days whereas transplanted segments of crustacean motor axons survive morphologically intact for 20-30 days. The middle portion of an isolated motor axon segment degenerates less rapidly than portions of the same axon located nearer the… (More)
