Liston, J. (University of Washington, Seattle), W. Wiebe, and R. R. Colwell. Quantitative approach to the study of bacterial species. J. Bacteriol. 85:1061-1070. 1963.-The stability of strains of various species of gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria was investigated by subculturing each strain through ten different media, testing the substrains so produced(More)
Fresh meat, poultry, and seafood purchased from Seattle area grocery stores were investigated for the presence of Shiga-like toxin-producing Escherichia coli by using DNA probes for Shiga-like toxin (SLT) genes I and II. Of the 294 food samples tested, 17% had colonies with sequence homology to SLT I and/or SLT II genes.
Vibrio bacteriophages were isolated by enrichment from 177 of 643 samples of marine molluscan shellfish, crustaceans, seawater, and sediments. The predominant bacteriophage types isolated were specific for some strains of Vibrio parahaemolyticus. A high frequency of phage isolations was also observed with strains of agar-digesting vibrios (21 of 56) and(More)
BACKGROUND Ichthyosauria is a diverse clade of marine amniotes that spanned most of the Mesozoic. Until recently, most authors interpreted the fossil record as showing that three major extinction events affected this group during its history: one during the latest Triassic, one at the Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary (JCB), and one (resulting in total(More)
Using CsCl-Hoechst dye or CsCl-ethidium bromide gradients, satellite and nuclear DNAs were separated and characterized in three marine dinoflagellates: Glenodinium sp., and two toxic dinoflagellates, Protogonyaulax tamarensis and Protogonyaulax catenella. In all three dinoflagellates, the lowest density fraction, satellite DNA(1), hybridized to chloroplast(More)
Colwell, R. R. (University of Washington, Seattle) and J. Liston. Taxonomic analysis with the electronic computer of some Xanthomonas and Pseudomonas species. J. Bacteriol. 82:913-919. 1961.-Forty organisms, including 16 Xanthomonas spp., 5 strains of Pseudomonas solanacearum, 4 strains of P. aeruginosa, 6 strains of P. fluorescens, 5 freshly isolated(More)
Radial scars are benign lesions of the breast which cannot be reliably distinguished from carcinoma by their mammographic appearances alone [1,2]. The present wisdom is that all such lesions should be biopsied [2]. We report a retrospective study carried out to assess whether there are any ultrasound imaging features that may be useful in differentiating(More)
