In the macronuclear rRNA genes of Tetrahymena thermophila, a 413 bp intervening sequence (IVS) interrupts the 26S rRNA-coding region. A restriction fragment of the rDNA containing the IVS and portions of the adjacent rRNA sequences (exons) was inserted downstream from the lac UV5 promoter in a recombinant plasmid. Transcription of this template by purified(More)
Molecular cloning has been used to isolate the ends of that portion of the tumor-inducing (Ti) plasmid of Agrobacterium tumefaciens which has been designated T-DNA and which has been transferred to the genome of tobacco crown gall tumor cells. Analysis of the DNA sequences of the plant border clones compared with the corresponding sequences of the Ti(More)
Crown gall tumors are induced in plants by infection with the soil bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens. Because the tumor induction involves transfer of a portion of the tumor-inducing (Ti) plasmid DNA from the bacterium to the plant cells, this system is of interest for the study of genetic exchange as well as tumor induction. The boundaries of the(More)
During mammalian development, retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axons from nasal retina cross the optic chiasm midline, whereas temporal retina axons do not and grow ipsilaterally, resulting in a projection of part of the visual world onto one side of the brain while the remaining part is represented on the opposite side. Previous studies have shown that RGC(More)
Pathfinding mechanisms underlying retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axon growth from the optic chiasm into the optic tract are unknown. Previous work has shown that mouse embryos deficient in GAP-43 have an enlarged optic chiasm within which RGC axons were reportedly stalled. Here we have found that the enlarged chiasm of GAP-43 null mouse embryos appears(More)
We demonstrated that a subclone of an Abelson murine leukemia virus-transformed B-lymphoid cell line switched from mu to gamma 2b expression in vitro, by the classical recombination-deletion mechanism. In this line, the expressed VHDJH region and the C gamma 2b constant region gene were juxtaposed by a recombination event which linked the highly repetitive(More)
The ATLAS Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT) performance depends critically on the choice of the active gas and on its properties. The most important operational aspects, which have led to the final choice of the active gas for the operation of the TRT at the LHC design luminosity, are presented. The TRT performance expected at these conditions is reviewed,(More)
Several prototypes of the Transition Radiation Tracker for the ATLAS experiment at the LHC have been built and tested at the CERN SPS accelerator. Results from detailed studies of the straw-tube hit registration efficiency and drifttime measurements and of the pion and electron spectra without and with radiators are presented. r 2004 Elsevier B.V.

Aerial drift of the juvenile hormone analogue (JHA), pyriproxyfen (Nemesis 100 ec®), used to control red scale on citrus on farms close to the Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa, was suspected of causing a decline in a population of the rare dung beetle species Circellium bacchus (F.) in the Park. The effect of pyriproxyfen on fertility and egg(More)
