Visual processing breaks the world into parts and objects, allowing us not only to examine the pieces individually, but also to perceive the relationships among them. There is work exploring how we perceive spatial relationships within structures with existing representations, such as faces, common objects, or prototypical scenes. But strikingly, there is(More)
Describing certain types of spatial relationships between a pair of objects requires that the objects are assigned different "roles" in the relation, e.g., "A is above B" is different than "B is above A." This asymmetric representation places one object in the "target" or "figure" role and the other in the "reference" or "ground" role. Here we provide(More)
In higher eukaryotes a quality control system monitoring the folding state of glycoproteins is located in the ER and is composed of the proteins calnexin, calreticulin, glucosidase II, and UDP-glucose: glycoprotein glucosyltransferase. It is believed that the innermost glucose residue of the N- linked oligosaccharide of a glycoprotein serves as a tag in(More)
The eut operon of Salmonella typhimurium encodes proteins involved in the cobalamin-dependent degradation of ethanolamine. Previous genetic analysis revealed six eut genes that are needed for aerobic use of ethanolamine; one (eutR), encodes a positive regulator which mediates induction of the operon by vitamin B12 plus ethanolamine. The DNA sequence of the(More)
The p53 protein is an attractive target for immunotherapy, because mutations in the p53 gene are the most common genetic alterations found in human tumors. These mutations result in high levels of p53 protein in the tumor cell, whereas the expression level of wild-type p53 in nonmalignant tissue is usually much lower. Several canarypox virus recombinants(More)
Insulin binding to its receptor leads to negatively cooperative interactions among the receptor sites. Studies with 29 insulin analogues (animal insulins and proinsulin, insulin-like growth factor and chemically modified insulins) which vary 1,000-fold in their affinity for the receptor and in their biological potency, suggest that a discrete invariable(More)
The cob operon of Salmonella typhimurium includes 20 genes devoted to the synthesis of adenosyl-cobalamin (coenzyme B12). Mutants with lesions in the promoter-distal end of the operon synthesize vitamin B12 only if provided with 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole (DMB), the lower ligand of vitamin B12. In the hope of identifying a gene(s) involved in synthesis of(More)
Green with Envy Events is a sustainable event planning company based out of San Diego, California. This company was used when conducting a case study examining sustainable wedding practices. The research was gathered using internet research, academic journals, and information from the Green with Envy Events website. The company demographics were examined(More)
form of the PMO shows a diagnostic type IV isotherm with well-defined capillary condensation and very little hysteresis (Fig. 4). The Brunauer Emmett Teller (BET) surface area is found to be as high as 1706 m 2 /g, and the mesopore diameter is about 2.5 nm, calculated by Barrett Joynes Halenda (BJH) methods (Fig. 4), close to that seen in TEM images (Fig.(More)
