In this paper, we present results of crosses designed to elucidate the structure of recombinants in the tail-fiber region of bacteriophage T4, in which a glucosylation-dependent recombinations mechanism is operative, and the cause of the "special" recombination in glycosylated crosses is discussed. We present evidence that, when phage are nonglycosylated,(More)
Restriction maps of an alpha-amylase structural gene clone, lambda Dm65, and of four putative alpha-amylase pseudogene clones are presented. Two alpha-amylase structural genes, inverted with respect to each other, are contained in lambda Dm65. Subregions of internal DNA sequence homology within lambda Dm65 and of cross-homology between the presumptive(More)
beta-Defensins are microbicidal peptides implicated in host defense functions of phagocytic leukocytes and certain surface epithelial cells. Here we investigated the genetic structures and cellular expression of BNBD-4, -12, and -13, three prototypic bovine neutrophil beta-defensins. Characterization of the corresponding cDNAs indicated that BNBD-4 (41(More)
A cloned alpha-amylase cDNA sequence from the mouse is homologous to a small set of DNA sequences from Drosophila melanogaster under appropriate conditions of hybridization. A number of recombinant lambda phage that carry homologous Drosophila genomic DNA sequences were isolated using the mouse clone as a hybridization probe. Putative amylase clones(More)
EYE TRACKING AS A CONTROL INTERFACE FOR TELE-OPERATION DURING A VISUAL SEARCH TASK Jeffrey Neal Levy Old Dominion University, 2017 Director: Dr. James Bliss This study examined the utility of eye-tracking as a control method during tele-operation in a simulated task environment. Operators used a simulator to tele-operate a search robot using three different(More)
Twenty-three pyrophosphate analogues were screened as inhibitors of proliferating cell nuclear antigen independent DNA polymerase delta (pol delta) derived from calf thymus. Carbonyldiphosphonate (COMDP), also known as alpha-oxomethylenediphosphonate, inhibited pol delta with a potency (Ki = 1.8 microM) 20 times greater than that displayed for DNA(More)
We found that alpha-Cl-alpha-Br-phosphonoacetate (ClBrPAA) is a competitive, solute-specific inhibitor of Na+/Pi cotransport across renal cortical brush border membrane. Inhibition by ClBrPAA (Ki = 62 microM) is more than three times more effective than inhibition by phosphonoformate (PFA), the most potent Na+/Pi cotransport inhibitor known to date, and 26(More)
