The physiological role of the mannitol cycle in the wheat pathogen Stagonospora nodorum (glume blotch) has been investigated by reverse genetics and metabolite profiling. A putative mannitol 2-dehydrogenase gene (Mdh1) was cloned by degenerate PCR and disrupted. The resulting mutated mdh1 strains lacked all detectable NADPH-dependent mannitol dehydrogenase(More)
Dried tears from keratoconjunctivitis sicca eyes fail to exhibit the fern-like crystallization patterns observed with tears from eyes with normal tear function. To test our hypothesis that the extent of ferning depends on the ratio of salts to protein and mucin in the tear sample, dried tears from six normal subjects were subjected to scanning electron(More)
We evaluated the effectiveness of an in-office microwave disinfection procedure which allowed for the disinfection of up to 40 soft contact lenses at one time. Ciba AOSept cases filled with sterile unpreserved saline were contaminated with one of six FDA test challenge microorganisms at a concentration of approximately 10(3) colony forming units per(More)
