The subcellular localizations of the Dolichos biflorus seed lectin and the structurally related lectin (cross-reactive material [CRM]) from the stems and leaves of this plant were determined by immunofluorescence, immunocytochemistry, and cell fractionation procedures. Subcellular fractionation of the cotyledons using a nonaqueous procedure to minimize(More)
The major soluble cytochrome isolated from microaerobically grown cells of Shewanella putrefaciens has been shown to be a novel type of flavocytochrome with fumarate reductase activity. This flavocytochrome, located in the periplasmic fraction of cell extracts, has been purified to homogeneity and shown to contain 4 mol of haem c and 1 mol of non-covalently(More)
Adaptation of a commercially available timer for use as a means of operating an audio tape recorder several times during the day is described. Data on a mother's rates of commanding her children were collected via both physically present observer and recorder methods in order to compare the usefulness of the recordings with direct observation. There was a(More)
The TrigoCor strain of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens provides consistent control against Fusarium head blight of wheat in controlled settings but there is a lack of disease and deoxynivalenol suppression in field settings. Since production of antifungal compounds is thought to be the main mode of action of TrigoCor control, we quantified levels of a key family(More)
The experiments described are part of an ongoing evaluation of the Queen's University Tactile Vocoder, a device that allows the acoustic waveform to be felt as a vibrational pattern on the skin. Two prelingually profoundly deaf teenagers reached criterion on a 50-word vocabulary (live voice, single speaker) using information obtained solely from the tactile(More)
Identification of open set words, by an experienced normal hearing subject using the tactile vocoder developed at Queen's University, was examined. The tactile vocoder filters and processes the acoustic waveform into 16 filter channels, each of which controls a vibrator on the skin surface. After acquiring a 250-word vocabulary through the tactile vocoder,(More)

Shewanella putrefaciens can use trimethylamine oxide (TMAO) as electron acceptor under anoxic conditions. The associated cytochromes induced during growth under various respiratory conditions have been separated by liquid chromatography (DEAE Sepharose CL6b) and SDS-PAGE and characterized spectrophotometrically and by redox potentiometry. Two major low(More)
The amount of soybean agglutinin (SBA) detectable by radioimmunoassay in seeds of resistant cultivars to Phytophthora megasperma var. sojae was approximately twice that of susceptible cultivars. SBA was preferentially released at earlier times (6-9 hours) and in higher amounts in the imbibate from resistant cultivars as compared to susceptible cultivars.(More)
