Crosses of females from Mormoniella stocks containing pe-333 type cross incompatibility with males from stocks lacking the incompatibility produced progeny that included 29 males with unexpected eye colors. Eight of these males gave rise to stocks that included some individuals with "speckled" eyes, containing sectors or spots of different colors. In these(More)
Although malignant neoplasm of the venous system is rare, leiomyosarcoma of large veins (predominantly the inferior vena cava) constitutes more than 75% of this condition. Symptoms are subject to tumor location and stenosis or obstruction of the venous system. This report describes the cases of two patients with leiomyosarcoma originating in large veins.(More)
Four stocks derived from aberrant segregation of R-locus genes in male progeny following incompatible crosses in Mormoniella have shown characteristics suggesting that genes found on added chromosomal fragments in these stocks have separated from each other. In most cases, this separation was associated with elevated temperatures at the time of and(More)
Melanin-deficient mutants of Wangiella dermatitidis were studied by comparing a spontaneous mutant (Mel 3) with the parental wild type (wt) in four strains of mice and by comparing various UV-induced mutants in a single strain of mouse. Mice were inoculated intravenously with 3 x 10(6), 1 x 10(7), 3 x 10(7) or 1 x 10(8) yeast-like cells and mortality(More)
Worksite cholesterol screening programs are becoming increasingly prevalent. Variability in cholesterol measurements frequently renders the interpretation of single or repeated cholesterol determinations problematic, complicating employee counseling within screening programs. In the setting of a corporate cholesterol screening program, this study quantifies(More)
Low frequency ultrasonic energy was utilized in an attempt to induce visible mutations in the parasitoid wasp Mormoniella vitripennis (Walker). Ultrasonic exposure at a frequency of 20,000 cycles per second was accomplished in aqueous medium with a commercially obtained energy source. Among the 22,396 progeny of exposed males and females, 63 phenotypically(More)
