Studies were performed to determine if the detoxification pathway of 1,3-butadiene (BD) through 3-butene-1,2-diol (BD-diol) is a major contributor to mutagenicity in BD-exposed mice and rats. First, female and male mice and rats (4-5 weeks old) were exposed by nose-only for 6h to 0, 62.5, 200, 625, or 1250 ppm BD or to 0, 6, 18, 24, or 36 ppm BD-diol(More)
We studied hematologic findings in 617 apparently healthy Georgia elementary, middle, and high school students, aged 10 to 19 years, and examined the influence of several parameters (race, sex, iron status, and genetic hemoglobin [Hb] abnormalities) on hypochromia and microcytosis, with or without anemia. Fourteen students (2%) (6 male, 8 female; 4 white,(More)
Although (+)-UH232 (cis-(+)-5-methoxy-1-methyl-2-(n-dipropylamino)tetralin) and (−)-DS121 (S(−)-3-(3-(cyanophenyl)-N-n-propylpiperidine) are both preferential dopamine autoreceptor antagonists, (−)-DS121 is a more effective behavioral stimulant and dopamine releasing agent. To further compare these two agents, Sokoloff's 2-deoxyglucose autoradiography(More)
Globin gene mapping of DNA from a Black newborn resulted in the detection of a chromosome with five gamma-globin genes. Based on results from digests with enzymes EcoRI and PstI, we concluded that the three genes between the 5'G gamma and 3'A gamma genes are G gamma genes with a possible 5' segment derived from A gamma. The high G gamma level in the fetal(More)
A large novel alpha-thalassemia-1 deletion which includes the zeta-, alpha 2-, alpha 1-, and theta 1-globin genes is described in a Black family living in Georgia and Florida. The deletion which was characterized by restriction enzyme analysis, extends 15 to 35 kb 5' and at least 35 kb 3' to the Cap site of the zeta-globin gene. Mental retardation was not(More)
A new deletion of approximately 8.5 kb that includes the alpha 2-, alpha 1-, and theta 1-globin genes was detected in a father and newborn son of a black family from Georgia. In the newborn baby the chromosome with the deletion occurred together with a rightward (-alpha 3.7) deletion chromosome. The resulting Hb H disease was detected at birth by the high(More)
