Cultures of T. pyriformis-NT1 were grown at 20 degrees C (Tg 20 degrees C) and 38 degrees C (Tg 38 degrees C). G.L.C. analysis and D.P.H. fluorescence polarization measurements in extracted phospholipids indicated that there was increased saturation of fatty acids and relatively reduced fluidity as growth temperature was increased. Breakpoints occurred in(More)
The swimming velocity and the amplitude of the helical swimming path of T. pyriformis-NT1 cells grown at 20 degrees C (Tg 20 degrees C) and 38 degrees C (Tg 38 degrees C) were monitored between 0 and 40 degrees C in the presence and absence of electric fields. Within physiological limits the swimming velocity increased and the amplitude decreased as(More)
The Crystallographic Information File (CIF) was adopted in 1990 by the International Union of Crystallography as a file structure for the archiving and distribution of crystallographic information. The CIF standard is now well established and is in regular use for reporting crystal structure determinations to Acta Crystallographica and other journals. The(More)
In this study, we tested the somatic marker hypothesis (SMH) by using an adaptation of the Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) in which the emotional context associated with primary inducers was systematically manipulated. In this modified version of the IGT, a picture of either a happy face or a fearful face was presented after each feedback. Critically, the(More)
The proposed crystalline phase identifier consists of a number of components (layers) describing enough properties of the phase to allow a unique identification. These layers consist of the chemical formula, a flag indicating the state of matter, the space-group number and the Wyckoff sequence. They are defined in such a way that they can be incorporated(More)

There is no unique index that measures the size of the distortion found in a coordination polyhedron because different indices can result in a different ordering depending on the mode of the distortion (i.e. the third and higher moments of the bond-length distribution). This paper proposes the increase in the average bond length as a suitable index as this(More)
The structure originally reported as poly[[μ(7)-l-cysteato(2-)]disodium], [Na(2)(C(3)H(5)NO(5)S)](n) [Liu (2002). Acta Cryst. E67, m1346-m1347], has been redetermined with one of the sodium atoms replaced with a water mol-ecule and an additional proton attached to the amine group, resulting in the revised formula [Na{CO(2)CH(CH(2)SO(3))NH(3)}(H(2)O)](n).(More)
An expression to describe the force that a chemical bond exerts on its terminal atoms is proposed, and is used to derive expressions for the bond force constant and bond compressibility. The unknown parameter in this model, the effective charge on the atoms that form the bond, is determined by comparing the derived force constants with those obtained(More)
