The transfer kinetics of [3H]-1-palmitoyl-2-oleoylphosphatidylcholine ([3H]POPC) and 1-palmitoyl-2-(pyrenyldecanoyl)phosphatidylcholine (PyrPC) from POPC small unilamellar vesicles were examined at 37 degrees C with lipid concentrations ranging from 0.1 to 40 mM. The rate of [3H]POPC transfer was determined by analyzing the movement of this lipid from(More)
We have previously demonstrated that spontaneous phospholipid transfer between bilayer vesicles at higher vesicle concentrations is characterized not only by a first-order desorption rate but also by a second-order process dependent on vesicle concentration (Jones & Thompson, 1989b). We have extended our studies to examine the mechanism of this second-order(More)
The kinetics of spontaneous transfer of various glucosyl- and galactosylceramides between 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoylphosphatidylcholine vesicles have been examined at 45 degrees C. Bovine brain galactosylceramides, kerasin and phrenosin, were found to transfer with biexponential kinetics. The kerasin fast pool is approximately 17% with a half-time of 29 h and the(More)
Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is under consideration as an alternative to chlorination as a disinfectant for public water supplies. A new assay was developed to qualitatively and quantitatively measure the metabolites of 36ClO2 in water and biological fluids. Studies in the rat indicated that the metabolites of ClO2 were Cl-, ClO-2, and ClO-b. At maximum(More)
The effect of gibberellic acid on the content and distribution of silicon in the stem, leaf sheath, and leaf lamina of sugarcane was analyzed in relation to the effect of gibberellic acid on stem growth. Silicon content was measured by neutron activation analysis, and its distribution was followed by scanning electron microscopy and X-ray analysis.Foliarly(More)
Lateral Inhibition (LI) phenomena occur in a wide range of sensory modalities and are most famously described in the human visual system. In LI the activity of a stimulated neuron is itself excited and suppresses the activity of its local neighbours via inhibitory connections, increasing the contrast between spatial environmental stimuli. Simple organisms,(More)
