Green turtle (Chelonia mydas) nesting has increased dramatically in Florida over the past two decades, ranking the Florida nesting aggregation among the largest in the Greater Caribbean region. Individual beaches that comprise several hundred kilometers of Florida’s east coast and Keys support tens to thousands of nests annually. These beaches encompass(More)
We have demonstrated that the beta nerve growth factor will interact with various acidic proteins apparently nonspecifically. When 125I-labeled beta nerve growth factor at a concentration of 3.8 X 10(-10) M is incubated with an acidic protein at 2 mg/ml (4.5 X 10(-6)-4.4 X 10(-5) M), a complex is formed. This complex changes the isoelectric point of the(More)
Recent studies showing that type VII collagen is a component of anchoring fibrils suggests that the absence of anchoring fibrils in recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa may be due to a defect in the synthesis, secretion, and deposition of type VII collagen. That hypothesis is further supported by recent studies suggesting that monoclonal antibodies to(More)
Culture of embryonic chicken dorsal root ganglia for periods exceeding a week generally require serum supplementation and a trophic factor such as nerve growth factor. In this communication we describe the culture of chicken E-9 dorsal root ganglia for periods up to 2 weeks in a system that is composed only of a simple basic salts solution and 10 ng/ml (3.8(More)
When 125I-beta nerve growth factor binds to sympathetic and sensory neurons, some labeled ligand is sequestered (becomes inaccessible to the external milieu) in a time- and energy-dependent manner. It would appear that the higher affinity receptor (type I) participates in this process to a greater extent than does the lower affinity receptor (type II) [(More)
