Of all the elements that affect the intelligibility of speech in telephony, bandwidth has been shown to be one of the most critical. This paper discusses the relation between bandwidth and intelligibility in speech, how improved bandwidth can compensate for other deficiencies such as noise and reverberation, and how the importance of wider audio bandwidth(More)
125I-Mannose--BSA is taken up by alveolar macrophages by receptor-mediated endocytosis. Uptake is macrophage-specific and does not occur in polymorphonuclear leukocytes. Binding (4 degrees C) and uptake (37 degrees C) of 125I--Man--BSA are time- and ligand concentration-dependent [Kuptake = 40 nM; Kd (4 degrees C) = 10 nM]. When adjusted for ligand(More)
Nurse hot line calls are a potential source of public health surveillance data and may help identify epidemics of emerging infectious diseases. In this study, nurse hot line data from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, showed more than a 17-fold increase in calls for diarrhea during the 1993 Milwaukee cryptosporidiosis outbreak. Moreover, consistent patterns of seasonal(More)
The distribution of a number of membrane proteins on plasmalemmal microdomains (microvilli, coated pits) and in endosomes and lysosomes of the proximal tubule epithelial cell was determined in normal rat kidneys by immunofluorescence and immunoelectron microscopy. Two major brush border proteins, 130 and 94 kD, and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase were(More)
The nature of the cytoplasmic coat present on the apical invaginations of the kidney proximal tubule cell was investigated by immuneoverlay and immunocytochemistry of renal brush borders with anticlathrin antibodies. When kidney cortex was prepared for electron microscopy using methods that enhance visualization of clathrin coats, the apical invaginations(More)
G5-IgG is a monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to some cells and tissues of the adult rat nervous and immune systems. The molecular nature of the G5 antigen from adult rat brain is described in this paper. G5 antigen in adult rat brain membrane fractions was trypsin-sensitive and heat-labile but not chloroform/methanol-soluble. It was solubilized(More)
The rate of accumulation of Luxol Fast Blue staining material in the hippocampus of motor neuron degeneration (mnd/mnd) mice, a model of Batten Disease, was quantitated. Stained material increased linearly up to 8 months of age. A quantitative immunoassay was used to measure levels of mitochondrial ATP synthase subunit 9 in brain and liver of mnd/mnd mice.(More)
G5 is a cell membrane component found in high levels in the adult rat central nervous system and in low levels on some cells of the rat immune system. Binding assays with adult brain particulate protein preparations and monoclonal antibody to G5 (G5-IgG) gave highest activity in cerebral cortex and lowest in the white matter rich regions pons and spinal(More)
