Glutamate transporters play an essential role in terminating the excitatory glutamatergic signal at post-synaptic receptors and in protecting neurones from excitotoxic effects, as well as replenishing the neurotransmitter supply at glutamatergic synapses. The distribution and density of glutamate transporters may be important determinants of vulnerability(More)
We report the localization of three monoclonal antibody (MAb) binding sites in the capsid protein of feline calicivirus. Gene fragments were generated by restriction enzyme digestion or the polymerase chain reaction, and expressed as beta-galactosidase fusion proteins in Escherichia coli. These chimeric molecules were screened using three MAbs. A(More)
Emerging evidence suggests that a disturbance of the glutamate neurotransmitter system may be a contributory factor to motor neuron injury in motor neuron disease. Previous autoradiographic and immunoblotting studies have suggested that there may be reduced expression of glutamate transporter proteins in pathologically affected areas of the CNS in motor(More)
A schedule-induced behavior paradigm was used to investigate the activity patterns of hyperactive children in a standardized situation. In Experiment I, 10 hyperactive and 10 normal control children matched for age, sex, and IQ were observed under conditions of baseline and schedule. Measures of a number of categorized activities were taken on a(More)
We have developed a simple, rapid and cheap method for the isolation of DNA from various sources by a further development of the silica binding method of Boom et al. (1). In combination with the alkaline lysis method for preparation of bacterial lysates, this constitutes a rapid and effective method for the isolation of plasmid DNA for sequencing and other(More)
This paper describes architectural enhancements in the Altera Stratix? 10 HyperFlex? FPGA architecture, fabricated in the Intel 14nm FinFET process. Stratix 10 includes ubiquitous flip-flops in the routing to enable a high degree of pipelining. In contrast to the earlier architectural exploration of pipelining in pass-transistor based architectures, the(More)
Feline calicivirus (FCV) is a member of the Caliciviridae and contains a positive-stranded, non-segmented. polyadenylated RNA genome. It codes for at least one structural protein [ 1. 21 and one nonstructural protein [3]. The mode of synthesis of the viral RNA is still not clear. Neil and Mengeling identified three subgenomic RNAs in addition to the full(More)
