Glutamatergic transmission is crucial to the segregation of ON and OFF pathways in the developing retina. The temporal sequence of maturation of vesicular glutamatergic transmission in rod and cone photoreceptor and ON and OFF bipolar cell terminals is currently unknown. Vesicular glutamate transporters (VGLUTs) that load glutamate into synaptic vesicles… (More)
Thin films of LiCoO2 have been synthesized in which the strongest x-ray reflection is either weak or missing, indicating a high degree of preferred orientation. Thin film solid state batteries with these textured cathode films can deliver practical capacities at high current densities. For example, for one of the cells, 70% of the maximum capacity between… (More)
The impedance of the junction between a solid or aqueous electrolyte and a metal electrode at which no charge transfer processes occur (blocking contacts) follows closely the constant phase angle form, Z = A(j omega)-n, over a wide frequency range, where A is a constant, and the frequency exponent n is typically in the range of 0.7 to 0.95. Several models… (More)
The antibiotic resistance (AR) patterns of 462 Escherichia coli isolates from wastewater, surface waters, and oysters were determined. Rates of AR and multiple-AR among isolates from surface water sites adjacent to wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) discharge sites were significantly higher (P < 0.05) than those among other isolates, whereas the rate of AR… (More)
This article examines the way that non-clinical support services are provided in healthcare settings through outsourcing partnerships. The integrated support services model and benefits to patient experience and safety as well as organizational efficiency and effectiveness are explored through an examination of services at a busy urban community hospital.
