The perception of face gender was examined in the context of extending "face space" models of human face representations to include the perceptual categories defined by male and female faces. We collected data on the recognizability, gender classifiability (reaction time to classify a face as male/female), attractiveness, and masculinity/femininity of(More)
The status of suppressor T cells (Ts) was assessed in seven children with the hyper IgE syndrome (recurrent staphylococcal infections, eczematous skin rash, and elevated serum IgE) to determine whether a deficiency in Ts is associated with increased IgE synthesis. When circulating T cells and their subsets were enumerated with the aid of monoclonal(More)
Functional cDNA clones coding for three isoforms of the human prostaglandin E receptor EP3 subtype have been isolated from kidney and uterus cDNA libraries. The three isoforms, designated hEP3-I, hEP3-II and hEP3-III, have open reading frames corresponding to 390, 388 and 365 amino acids, respectively. They differ only in the length and amino acid(More)
The two-stage leukocyte migration agarose test (indirect LMAT), shown to be a sensitive in vitro assay for cell-mediated immunity, was used to study Kveim reactivity in vitro in patients with sarcoidosis. No Kveim-induced inhibition of leukocyte migration in agarose or Kveim-induced lymphocyte transformation in vitro was found in 23 patients with(More)
1. NK1 and NK2 receptors have been characterized in guinea-pig lung membrane preparations by use of [125I-Tyr8]-substance P and [125I]-neurokinin A binding assays in conjunction with tachykinin-receptor selective agonists ([Sar9Met(O2)11]substance P for NK1 and [beta Ala8]neurokinin A (4-10) for NK2) and antagonists (CP-99,994 for NK1 and SR48968 for NK2).(More)
Our study investigated the carbon:nitrogen:phosphorus (C:N:P) stoichiometry of mangrove island of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef (Twin Cays, Belize). The C:N:P of abiotic and biotic components of this oligotrophic ecosystem was measured and served to build networks of nutrient flows for three distinct mangrove forest zones (tall seaward fringing forest,(More)
The SPEAR (or " F IM S ′′) instrumentation has been used to conduct the first large-scale spectral mapping of diffuse cosmic far ultraviolet (FUV, 900-1750Å) emission, including important diagnostics of interstellar hot (10 4 K – 10 6 K) and photoionized plasmas, H 2 , and dust scattered starlight. The instrumentation's performance has allowed for the(More)
We describe the design and development of the CHIPS microchannel plate detector. The Cosmic Hot Interstellar Plasma Spectrometer will study the diffuse radiation of the interstellar medium in the extreme ultraviolet band pass of 90Å to 260Å. Astronomical fluxes are expected to be low, so high efficiency in the band pass, good out-of-band rejection, low(More)
