Several Pseudomonas solanacearum strains which produced no detectable extracellular polysaccharide (EPS) in planta had been reported to remain highly virulent when tested at high inoculum concentrations (P. Xu, M. Iwata, S. Leong, and L. Sequeira, J. Bacteriol. 172:3946-3951, 1990; P. Xu, S. Leong, and L. Sequeira, J. Bacteriol. 170:617-622, 1988). Two of(More)
A derived response method of acquiring frequency specific auditory evoked potentials that utilizes a pure tone in combination with a toneburst is applied to the measurement of hearing sensitivity in guinea pigs, chinchillas and pocket gophers. Two experiments which demonstrate that thresholds acquired via tone-derived responses are 10 to 15 dB more(More)
The stratum corneum can be dissociated into single squames by homogenization in ether. We have reaggregated the free corneocytes into a multilayered lamellar structure resembling an intact stratum corneum. The reconstituted stratum corneum reacts with fluorescein-conjugated lectins, unlike the intact tissue. We infer that the lack of binding in the intact(More)
The stratum corneum can be dissociated into single squames by several extraction methods: mechanically, with organic solvents, and with detergents. We have performed studied of reaggregation from single squames prepared by these methods. Mechanically dispersed corneocytes recombined into a lamellar-like structure closely resembling intact stratum corneum.(More)
Epidermal cells from pigmented areas of a patient with vitiligo were cultured in MCDB-153 medium, which supports the clonal growth of undifferentiated keratinocytes and melanocytes. The cells were grown on collagen-coated substrata. After the cells reached semiconfluence, the composite of substratum and cells was emplaced onto dermabraded vitiliginous areas(More)
A technique is described which verifies neural activity to a very faint continuous sine wave through subtraction of two different far-field whole nerve action potentials from one another. A brief transient is presented to an animal in order to elicit a supra-threshold action potential. The technique is then repeated, but on the second trial a near-threshold(More)
BACKGROUND The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) is a multi-ligand receptor in the immunoglobulin superfamily. RAGE is localized throughout ascending sensory pathways (skin, peripheral nerve, dorsal root ganglion, spinal cord), and in cell types interacting with sensory neurons (endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, monocytes and(More)
A two step procedure recovers proteins from sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gels. The proteins are eluted by electrophoretic dialysis. The eluent is then passed through an Amberlite CG-400 anion-exchange resin. The recovery of protein is nearly total. The recovered proteins have no detectable sodium dodecyl sulfate contamination. With gels that have(More)
