The dynamin-related GTPase Dnm1 controls mitochondrial morphology in yeast. Here we show that dnm1 mutations convert the mitochondrial compartment into a planar 'net' of interconnected tubules. We propose that this net morphology results from a defect in mitochondrial fission. Immunogold labelling localizes Dnm1 to the cytoplasmic face of constricted(More)
Plasma phosphatase was first determined by Martland (1925) and then by Kay (1930), using glycerophosphate and estimating the inorganic phosphate liberated at 370 C. at a specified pH and in a given time. The procedure has been variously modified and simplified by Jenner and Kay (1932), Bodansky (1933), Shinowara, Jones, and Reinhart (1942). Several(More)
There is much evidence indicating the non-identity of acid phosphatases of different origin. Davies (1934) has shown that the acid phosphatase of the red cell differs from that of spleen in that the former hydrolyses x-glycerophosphate much more readily than the ,-compound, while with the spleen enzyme ,-glycerophosphate is hydrolysed more quickly.

Pure silica (SiO, ) exists at room temperature in the four different modifications: quartz, tridymite, cristobalite, and fused silica. The first three are crystalline, but fused silica is a non-crystalline solid, a glass. Tridymite, cristobalite, and fused silica are metastable, but at room temperature they do not invert within measurable time to the only(More)
