Mutants of the yeast Saccaromyces cerevisiae which can grow on glycerol medium in the presence of 0.05% D (+) glucosamine have been isolated. Genetic analysis of 13 of these glucosamine resistant (GR) mutants demonstrated two modes of inheritance. One group of mutants (GR 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10) gave results characteristic of non-Mendelian inheritance and it(More)
The rat secretory ductal obstruction model has been widely used to assess salivary gland injury, growth, and differentiation. In this study, a novel ductal obstruction and release procedure was used to explore the signaling pathways leading to salivary gland regeneration. Rats underwent bilateral parotid ductal obstruction in which the duct was occluded(More)
Spontaneous seizures have been reported in several baboon subspecies housed at the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research (SFBR), including Papio hamadryas anubis as well as cynocephalus/anubis and other hybrids. This study classified clinical and electroencephalographic (EEG) phenotypes in these subspecies based upon interictal and ictal findings, as(More)
SUMMARY: Nineteen years experience in directing AAALAC accredited animal research/training programs using a variety of animal models (rodents to monkeys). Experience includes developing standard operating procedures, 13 years experience with biocontainment facilities (BL3 & BL-4), interfacing with scientific investigators, and the design and construction of(More)
Coxiella burnetii phase I whole cell vaccine (WCV) is associated with risk of severe local delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) reactions in previously immunized individuals or those sensitized by natural exposure. We compared this vaccine to another investigational vaccine derived by chloroform-methanol extraction of phase I whole cells (chloroform-methanol(More)
N,N,N',N'-Tetramethylimidazolidinium dichloride (1-Im-1 2Cl) has been studied as a model system for cation-anion interactions in the interfacial regions of gemini micelles by X-ray crystallography, density functional theory (DFT) calculations, and infrared spectroscopy. Single crystals of 1-Im-1 2Cl contain 1-Im-1 dications, whose five-membered rings adopt(More)
The previously established model for determining dermal granulomatous reactivity of Q fever vaccines uses footpad injections to sensitize Hartley guinea pigs. We describe a substantial refinement to that model by substituting an alternate injection route and replacing the model with the hairless Hartley guinea pig. The experimental design incorporates a(More)
