Nine 115- to 180-kg, hay-adapted, Holstein steers were fed an experimental diet with added sodium sulfate that induces polioencephalomalacia (PEM). Five calves developed the disease. Thiamine concentrations in blood, CSF, brain, and liver were not indicative of thiamine deficiency. The odor of hydrogen sulfide in eructated rumen gas was associated with the(More)
Changes in elevation between 1975 and October 1980 along a leveling line across the Long Valley caldera indicate a broad (half-width, 15 kilometers) uplift (maximum, 0.25 meter) centered on the old resurgent dome. This uplift is consistent with reinflation of a magma reservoir at a depth of about 10 kilometers. Stresses generated by this magmatic resurgence(More)
The biological and forensic use of ion-interaction reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography for the determination of hydrogen sulfide-derived methylene blue is evaluated by measuring the sulfide content in tissues from sulfide-treated mice. Various preparative conditions were examined. The determinations of background levels of sulfide from(More)
Strain accumulation during the 1980-85 interval has been measured by means of trilateration surveys in the Shumagin and Yakataga seismic gaps, which are the two regions identified as the most likely sites for the next great thrust earthquakes along the Alaska-Aleutian arc. No significant strain accumulation was detected in the Shumagin gap, but experience(More)

The plate tectonics model of the Pacific moving northwest relative to North America implies that the regional strain in California should be simple shear across a vertical plane striking N45 degrees W or equivalently equal parts of north-south contraction and east-west extension. Measurements of the strain accumulation at seven separate sites in southern(More)
3-Benzoyl-2-quinolinecarboxaldehyde has been synthesized and characterized for use as a precolumn fluorogenic reagent for the ultrahigh sensitivity determination of primary amines by micro-column liquid chromatography with laser-induced fluorescence detection. The reaction conditions and the spectral properties of the derivatives were investigated with(More)
