The bacteriophage population is large, dynamic, ancient, and genetically diverse. Limited genomic information shows that phage genomes are mosaic, and the genetic architecture of phage populations remains ill-defined. To understand the population structure of phages infecting a single host strain, we isolated, sequenced, and compared 627 phages of(More)
In both exposed and protected areas of progressively older people the underside of the epidermis becomes increasingly flattened out. This flattening is accompanied by a comparable rarefaction of the superficial blood vessels. In this article we review the architecture of the elastic fiber framework in the papillary dermis of skin protected from the sun;(More)
This study yielded the following findings on the morphologic facial skin differences between black and white women: The epidermis of black skin has more and larger singly distributed melanosomes in the keratinocytes and corneocytes than that of white skin. The stratum lucidum in black skin is not altered by sunlight exposure. The epidermis of black skin(More)
In glycomethacrylate sections of sun-exposed skin, we found the epidermis a sensitive index of damage. The stratum corneum of severely damaged skin was often compact and laminated, or gelatinous, and sometimes contained vesicles full of proteinous material. These vesicles arose from the enlarged and distinctly cellular-thick stratum lucidum. Sometimes there(More)
Sequential steroid administration of estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) in spayed pigtailed macaques was used to precisely control the time course of sex skin swelling. After removal of the P implant, the sex skin swelled considerably and the water content of the sex skin increased manyfold over that of back skin. During the swelling phase, hyaluronate(More)
In vitro frog gastric mucosa was employed as a model for a combined physiological, biochemical, and ultrastructural study of the morphological changes which accompany the onset of acid secretion by the oxyntic cell. The histamine H2-receptor antagonist metiamide was used to provide a reproducible control state. Stimulation of acid production by theophylline(More)
Recent research has demonstrated that Exosurf (EXSF), a newly synthesized artificial surfactant, increases survival when administered endotracheally to premature infants with RDS. This study examines the effects of EXSF on static respiratory system compliance (Crs). Thirty-four patients received two doses of EXSF in this rescue protocol. Crs (mL/cmH2O/kg)(More)
As average life expectancy is increasing, the ageing of skin presents a growing problem for dermatologists. When considering ageing it is important to distinguish between the effects of true biological ageing and environmental factors, such as exposure to sun. Epidermal changes associated with ageing involve the flattening of its underside, a reduction in(More)
The involvement of de novo protein synthesis in acid secretion by the in vitro bullfrog gastric mucosa was examined using the inhibitors cycloheximide and puromycin. Both inhibitors reduced [3H]leucine incorporation by more than 90%. The inhibition of protein synthesis had no influence on spontaneous acid secretion nor did it effect secretory stimulation by(More)
We have used GMA-embedded tissues sectioned 2-3 mu for the identification of granulated cells in wounded and normal macaque tissues. Mast cell granules stain brilliantly with Giemsa or with PAS counterstained with alcian blue, neutrophils stand out clearly when treated with the PAS method and macrophage granules stain with PAS as well as with basic dyes.(More)
