The normal range of many chemical, physical, and biological (hormonal) properties of fetal bovine, calf, and newborn calf sera collected commercially are presented. We attempt to relate these properties to growth promotion in vitro. Whereas no definitive conclusions could be drawn from the data, high growth hormone levels, low endotoxin levels, and low(More)
The non-Abeta component of Alzheimer's disease amyloid (NAC) is copurified with amyloid from the brain tissue of Alzheimer's disease victims and is immunohistochemically localized to amyloid fibrils. NAC is a hydrophobic peptide fragment from the NAC precursor protein (NACP/alpha-synuclein) that is localized to presynaptic terminals. We used a polymorphic(More)
When Caenorhabditis elegans encounters an unfavourable stimulus at its anterior, it responds by initiating an avoidance response, namely reversal of locomotion. The amphid neurons, ASHL and ASHR, are polymodal in function, with roles in the avoidance responses to high osmolarity, nose touch, and both volatile and non-volatile repellents. The mechanisms that(More)
The reaction pathways of high-spin iron hydride complexes are relevant to the mechanism of N2 reduction by nitrogenase, which has been postulated to involve paramagnetic iron-hydride species. However, almost all known iron hydrides are low-spin, diamagnetic Fe(II) compounds. We have demonstrated that the first high-spin iron hydride complex, LtBuFeH (LtBu =(More)
Ritalin (methylphenidate hydrochloride), Benzedrine (amphetamine sulfate), and Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine sulfate) were examined for oncogenicity using a serial line of Fischer rat embryo cells, which was previously shown to be a sensitive and accurate indicator of chemicals carcinogenic for rodents. At the concentrations tested, none of the 3 drugs(More)
