Picocyanobacteria represented by Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus have an important role in oceanic carbon fixation and nutrient cycling. In this study, we compared the community composition of picocyanobacteria from diverse marine ecosystems ranging from estuary to open oceans, tropical to polar oceans and surface to deep water, based on the sequences of(More)
Texcocan-Aztec peoples in the Valley of Mexico used both picture symbols and lines and dots for numerical notation. Decipherment and analysis of mid-16th-century native pictorial land documents from the Texcocan region indicate that the line-and-dot system incorporated a symbol for zero and used position to ascribe values. Positional line-and-dot notation(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to review the results of percutaneous transluminal renal artery angioplasty (PTRA) in patients with atherosclerosis to assess safety, anatomic and functional outcome, and differences in outcome between ostial and nonostial lesions. METHODS We used retrospective review of 52 consecutive patients who had undergone(More)
The in-situ lens-bound protein layer (LBPL) was characterized on hydrogels of varying water content and ionic-binding capacity. The LBPL proved to be critically dependent on the ionic binding capacity of a given hydrogel. On nonionic polymers the LBPL invariably was thin and largely insoluble. Histochemical staining allowed the detection of all major types(More)
Phytoplankton growth rates are limited by the supply of iron (Fe) in approximately one third of the open ocean, with major implications for carbon dioxide sequestration and carbon (C) biogeochemistry. To date, understanding how alteration of Fe supply changes phytoplankton physiology has focused on traditional metrics such as growth rate, elemental(More)
[3H-Et]Nitrosourea was administered to male (101 X C3H) mice by i.p. injection at exposure levels of 10 mg/kg or 100 mg/kg. At intervals from 1 h to 6 days following treatment, the ratio of O6-ethylguanine to N7-ethylguanine in testis DNA averaged 1.13 following the 100 mg/kg exposure and 0.72 following the 10 mg/kg exposure. The amount of O6-ethylguanine(More)
Proteins generated during primary production represent an important fraction of marine organic nitrogen and carbon, and have the potential to provide organism-specific information in the environment. The Bering Sea is a highly productive system dominated by seasonal blooms and was used as a model system for algal proteins to be tracked through the water(More)
Chemical analysis was carried out on clinically obtained hazy white hydrogel lenses that had been exposed to hydrogen peroxide disinfection. Analysis revealed that hazing was a surface phenomenon limited to high water content ionic matrix hydrogels (type IV), the type associated with the deposition of large amounts of lysozyme. We subjected unworn lenses to(More)
