The Aquificales are widespread in marine and terrestrial hydrothermal environments. Here, we report the complete and draft genome sequences of six new members of the Aquificales: two marine species, Persephonella marina strain EX-H1 and Hydrogenivirga strain 128-5-R1 (from the East Pacific Rise, 9 degrees 50.3'N, 104 degrees 17.5'W, and the Eastern Lau(More)
Bottom and shoreline sediments of Green Bay, northern Lake Michigan, and rivers of the Green Bay drainage basin, as well as soils of the surrounding land mass, were examined for Clostridium botulinum type E. Detection was based on identification of type E toxin in enrichment cultures and was influenced by many factors. Testing smaller amounts of sample in(More)
A series of 18 2,4-diamino-5-[(1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-6-quinolyl)methyl]pyrimidines has been prepared by the condensation of 2,4-diamino-5-(hydroxymethyl)pyrimidine with 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolines in acidic medium. Several derivatives were catalytically aromatized; others were synthesized from these by routine aromatic substitution or by condensations of(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to identify factors associated with acute low back injury among municipal employees of a large city. METHODS For each of 200 injured case patients, 2 coworker controls were randomly selected, the first matched on gender, job, and department and the second matched on gender and job classification. In-person(More)
During the last two decades, knowledge has increased significantly regarding the treatment of acute pain. One of these advances has been the implementation of multidisciplinary Acute Pain Services in the hospital setting to take on accountability for acute pain management. Acute Pain Services are expanding rapidly in the Canadian health care system. Nurse(More)
The synthesis and thymidylate synthase (TS) inhibitory activity of a series of simple benzo[f]-quinazolin-1(2H)-ones are described. Fully aromatic 3-amino compounds with compact lipophilic substituents in the 9-position were found to have I50 values as low as 20 nM on the isolated enzyme, and represent the first examples of potent, folate-based TS(More)
Twelve 2,4-diamino-5-[(1,2-dihydro-6-quinolyl)methyl]pyrimidines containing gem-dimethyl or fluoromethyl substituents at the 2-position of the dihydroquinoline ring were prepared by condensations of dihydroquinolines with 2,4-diamino-5-(hydroxymethyl)pyrimidine. The dihydroquinolines were produced from the reaction of anilines with mesityl oxide or(More)
Several folate-like thymidylate synthase inhibitors are described in which the pteridine nucleus of the folic acid molecule is replaced by a benzoquinazoline moiety, which in turn is attached to the benzoylglutamate side chain by a sulfonamide link. The most potent compounds had Ki values as low as 2.5 nM against the human enzyme, were good substrates for(More)
Interdisciplinary teams are rapidly becoming the standard for the organization and delivery of acute care services. Increasingly, research is showing that an interdisciplinary approach has the potential to improve patient care. Implementing a team approach, however, has challenges because of the various perspectives that different disciplines bring. In this(More)
The modification of ribonuclease A with the heterobifunctional cross-linker, 4-succinimdyloxycarbonyl-methyl-alpha-[2-pyridyldithio]-toluene (SMPT) is described. RNase A has 11 potential sites of modification by the SMPT reagent. Tracking the two-dimensional separation and proteolytic digestion of SMPT-modified RNase A with ESI/FTICR-MS and HPLC/ESI/QIT-MS(More)
