One important aspect of the safety assessment of genetically engineered crops destined for food and feed uses is the characterization of the consumed portion of the crop. One crop currently under development, glyphosate-tolerant soybeans (GTS), was modified by the addition of a glyphosate-tolerance gene to a commercial soybean cultivar. The composition of(More)
The compositional analyses and safety assessment of glyphosate-tolerant soybeans (GTS) were previously described. These analyses were extensive and included addressing the potential effects on seed composition from the genetic modification. Detailed compositional analyses established that GTS, which had not been treated with glyphosate, were comparable to(More)
A major challenge in developing therapies based on progenitor or stem cell populations (from sources other than bone marrow) involves developing a mode to deliver these cells in a manner that optimizes their viability, engraftment, proliferation, and differentiation. We have previously isolated a hepatic progenitor cell (HPC) population from adult liver(More)
Fluorescence detected sedimentation velocity (FDS-SV) has emerged as a powerful technique for the study of high-affinity protein interactions, with hydrodynamic resolution exceeding that of diffusion-based techniques, and with sufficient sensitivity for binding studies at low picomolar concentrations. For the detailed quantitative analysis of the observed(More)

Bacteriol. 85:649-653. 1963.-The morphology of Shepard's "T-strain" organisms from the human genital tract was investigated. The incubation of "T-strains" in 20% CO(2) with 80% nitrogen for 4 to 5(More)
T-strain mycoplasmas require urea for propagation, but urea metabolism also occurs in nonpropagating viable cultures. Ammonia results from this metabolism and alkalinizes the medium. Ammonium ions and an alkaline pH both inhibit the multiplication of T strains and reduce the viability of T strains in broth. These toxic effects of urea metabolism currently(More)
