The molecular species of cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate (cAMP) receptor proteins (high-affinity-binding proteins) present in hormone-dependent and -independent rat mammary carcinomas were identified and characterized. Three major types of cAMP receptor proteins, with molecular weights of 39,000, 48,000, and 56,000, specifically incorporated the(More)
Although there has been extensive empirical research on the characteristics of psychiatric patient assailants and their staff victims, there has been a dearth of empirical research on the nature of the precipitants of these patient/staff interactions. Building on the few earlier studies, this year-long, retrospective, empirical study of patient precipitants(More)
The estrogen and cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate (cAMP)-binding activities changed markedly when 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced mammary tumors of Sprague-Dawley rats regressed following daily injections of either tamoxifen or pharmacologic doses of 17 beta-estradiol. cAMP binding increased eightfold to tenfold, whereas estrogen binding(More)
Study of a diverse set of chiral smectic materials, each of which has twist grain boundary (TGB) phases over a broad temperature range and exhibits grid patterns in the Grandjean textures of the TGB helix, shows that these features arise from a common structure: "giant" smectic blocks of planar layers of thickness l(b) > 200 nm terminated by GBs that are(More)
Garlic (Allium sativum) is known to have many beneficial attributes such as antimicrobial, antiatherosclerotic, antitumorigenetic, and immunomodulatory properties. In the present study, we investigated the effects of an aqueous garlic extract on macrophage cytokine production by challenging the macrophage J774A.1 cell line with the garlic extract in the(More)
