Mixed monolayer protected gold clusters (MMPCs) functionalized with quaternary ammonium chains efficiently transfect mammalian cell cultures, as determined through beta-galactosidase transfer and activity. The success of these transfection assemblies depended on several variables, including the ratio of DNA to nanoparticle during the incubation period, the(More)
The laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB) can be revised to sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) for various reasons. Data are limited on the safety and efficacy of single-stage removal of LAGB and creation of LSG. A retrospective review of cases was performed from 2010 to 2013. From the primary LSG group, a control group was matched in a 2:1 ratio. Thirty-two(More)
Yersinia enterocolitica and related Yersinia species share many temperature-dependent biological attributes. The present report documents temperature-dependent production of a bacteriocin-like substance only among Yersinia strains which ferment L-rhamnose, raffinose, and melibiose and which have been tentatively designed Y. intermedia. When tested by the(More)
We studied a group of 31 bacterial isolates from clinical specimens, received by the Centers for Disease Control since 1961, which have been denoted thermophilic for their unusual ability to grow at 50 degrees C. Microbiological characteristics were determined for the group, and an assessment of their clinical significance was made based on retrospective(More)
Yersinia intermedia produces a temperature-dependent (25 degrees C) bactericidal substance that is active against other Yersinia species. Crude preparations of the inhibitory substance were inactivated by chymotrypsin, trypsin, pronase, and heating but were not affected by lipolytic enzymes, chloroform, or other organic solvents. These data suggest that the(More)
