Juvenile hormone (JH) esterase found primarily in the hemolymph and tissues of insects is a low abundance protein involved in the ester hydrolysis of insect juvenile hormones, JHs. The enzyme was purified from the larval plasma of wild-type Manduca sexta using an affinity column prepared by binding the ligand,(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the 3'-terminal portion of the tobacco etch virus (TEV) genome was determined. The 2324-nucleotide sequence represented approximately one-fourth of the TEV genome and included the capsid protein gene and flanking regions. An open reading frame of 2135 nucleotides and an untranslated region of 189 nucleotides adjacent to a(More)
The sequence of the 3'-terminal 1481 nucleotides of the pepper mottle virus (PeMV) genome has been determined. The sequence was determined by dideoxy nucleotide sequencing of complementary DNA which had been inserted into M13 bacteriophage cloning vectors and was confirmed by sequencing selected regions of PeMV RNA. A discrete open reading frame of 993(More)
This paper presents the development of conceptual models that can be used in the creation of certain types of supply chain simulation projects. The supply chain considered is composed of four elements: suppliers, manufacturer, retailers, and the consumer market. The presented ideas can be used in supply chain simulation projects, which objective can be, for(More)
The sequence of the 1491 nucleotides found at the 3' end of the genome of the highly aphid-transmissible (HAT) isolate of tobacco etch virus (TEV) has been determined. The nucleotide sequence of the capsid protein gene has been identified and compared with the corresponding region of the not-aphid-transmissible (NAT) isolate of TEV and with pepper mottle(More)
Compositional analysis of the soluble tryptic peptides representing about 70% of the 293 residues of sn-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase in Drosophila melanogaster reveals a single peptide difference between the sn-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase adult (GPDHF-1) and larval (GPDHF-3) isozymes. This peptide was shown to be the carboxyl terminus by(More)
In the period from 1947 to 1962, 49 cases of intracranial tuberculoma were observed and studied at the Charles Camsell Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta, among Canadian Indians and Eskimos. Thirty-six of these cases had no pre-existing clinical meningitis. Well-marked intracranial calcification was present in 60% of skull radiographs, contrasted with 1 to 6%(More)
