Response to joint attention (RJA) is impaired in preschoolers with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and is pivotal to social and communication development. Response to joint attention was examined at 14 and 24 months in 51 children at high risk for autism (siblings of children with autism). Outcome groups at age 3 years included ASD (n = 16), broader autism(More)
The analysis of sera obtained from animals vaccinated or revaccinated with inactivated vaccines against foot and mouth disease (FMD) virus showed that these vaccines induced antibodies against the virus infection-associated (VIA) antigen, detectable by agar gel immunodiffusion (AGID). The present study evaluates the antibody response to protein 3D and the(More)
We report here the isolation of a mutant tRNAPhe that suppresses a double missense auxotrophic mutation in trpA of Escherichia coli, trpA218. The doubly mutant protein product differs from wild-type TrpA by the replacements of Phe22 by Leu and Gly211 by Ser. A partial revertant TrpA phenotype can be obtained from trpA218 by changing either Leu22 back to Phe(More)
The oligonucleotide AGAGGAGGU, complementary to the 3' end of 16S RNA has been shown to inhibit 70S initiation complex formation on E. coli ribosomes (Taniguchi, T. and Weissmann, C., 1978. Nature, 275, 770-772). We have prepared this nonanucleotide in larger quantities by a combination of DEAE cellulose-urea chromatography and reverse phase (RPC 5)(More)
In this paper we describe the construction of a yeast tRNACys UGA suppressor. After specific hydrolysis of the parent molecule, the first base of the anticodon GCA was replaced by a uracil. The resulting molecule, harboring a UCA anticodon, was injected into Xenopus laevis oocytes in order to test its biological activities. The level of aminoacylation was(More)
This technique provides a simple and reliable means of obtaining an operative arteriogram after carotid endarterectomy. Detection of unsuspected abnormalities before the wound is closed allows the surgeon to correct any abnormalities immediately with hopes of decreasing the incidence of postoperative neurological deficits.
