An enzyme catalyzing the formation of a cytokinin metabolite, an O-pentosyl derivative of zeatin [Lee, Y. H., Mok, M. C., Mok, D. W. S., Griffin, D. A. & Shaw, G. (1985) Plant Physiol. 77, 635-641], was isolated from Phaseolus vulgaris embryos. Of all the potential pentose donors tested, UDP-xylose was the only substrate recognized by the enzyme. This(More)
A reductase catalyzing the conversion of zeatin to dihydrozeatin was detected in soluble fractions of immature Phaseolus vulgaris embryos. The enzyme was partially purified by ammonium sulfate fractionation and affinity, gel filtration, and anion exchange chromatography. NADPH was the only cofactor required for enzyme activity, and the pH optimum was 7.5 to(More)
An enzyme catalyzing the formation of O-glucosylzeatin in immature embryos of Phaseolus lunatus was purified 2500-fold using ammonium sulfate precipitation followed by affinity and anion exchange chromatography. The enzyme uses trans-zeatin as substrate (K(m) 28 micromolar) but not cis-zeatin, ribosylzeatin, or dihydrozeatin. Both UDP-glucose and UDP-xylose(More)
We present a detailed comparison of a variety of predictions for diffractive light vector meson production with the data collected at the HERA collider. All our calculations are performed within a dipole model framework and make use of different models for the meson light-cone wavefunction. There are no free parameters in any of the scenarios we consider.(More)
The availability of future fusion devices such as a Fusion Nuclear Science Facility (FNSF) or DEMO greatly depends on long operating lifetimes of plasma facing components in their divertors. ORNL is designing the Material-Plasma Exposure eXperiment (MPEX), a superconducting magnet, steady-state device to address the plasma material interactions of fusion(More)
Intermodal diffusion in a large-diameter plastic-clad silica step-index fiber is measured with a near-field projection of the modal pattern onto a CCD camera. The diffusion process is found to obey a 1/θ(2) dependence (where θ is the axis-crossing angle of the mode). The diffusion constant is estimated to be 1.3 × 10(-5) rad(2) m-(1). The contribution of(More)
We confront the colour glass condensate motivated dipole model parameterization of Iancu, Itakura and Munier with the available HERA data on the diffractive structure function F D(3) 2 and with existing dipole model parameterizations. Reasonably good agreement is found with only two adjustable parameters. We caution against interpreting the success of the(More)

Internal funds have been used at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to enable the initial installation of a laser based, Thomson scattering (TS) diagnostic on the prototype Material-Plasma Exposure eXperiment (Proto-MPEX). Since the funds are limited in amount and duration, the initial TS system has followed a low cost design and rapid implementation. This paper(More)
The activities of the free base and ribonucleoside forms of cytokinins bearing saturated and unsaturated N(6)-isoprenoid side chains have been examined in callus cultures derived from Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Great Northern, P. lunatus cv. Kingston, and the interspecific hybrid Great Northern x Kingston. In callus of cv. Great Northern, cytokinins bearing(More)
