Mycobacterium sp. strain LB501T utilizes anthracene as a sole carbon and energy source. We analyzed cultures of the wild-type strain and of UV-generated mutants impaired in anthracene utilization for metabolites to determine the anthracene degradation pathway. Identification of metabolites by comparison with authentic standards and transient accumulation of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) inhibit cyclooxygenase (COX) activity, which is the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of prostaglandins. Previous studies have indicated that NSAID therapy, and in particular NSAIDs that specifically target the inflammatory cyclooxygenase (COX-2), impair bone healing. We compared the(More)
STUDY DESIGN Data was gathered from biomechanical testing of 10 thoracic human cadaveric spines. Spines were tested intact and with a Luque rectangle fixed with wire or cable. OBJECTIVES To compare the rigidity of fixation and intraspinal penetration of sublaminar monofilament wire and multistrand cable under identical conditions using human cadaveric(More)
