Proteins display a vast array of tertiary structures, but only a few regular motifs are common at the level of secondary structure. Establishing sequence-stability relationships for the common secondary structures should enhance our understanding of protein-folding preferences. Many groups have used model systems to examine R-helix 1 and, more recently,(More)

Abstract In this paper, we discuss the implications of ―college and career‖ readiness for students with significant cognitive disabilities, i.e., those students who take their state's respective alternate assessment on alternate achievement standards,(More)
The conditioned taste aversion (CTA) is routinely used to assess the aversive consequences of anorexic agents, including potential pharmacological therapies for obesity. In a typical CTA paradigm, rats briefly sampling a novel tastant (e.g., saccharin) are acutely administered with toxin (e.g., lithium chloride, LiCl). After as few as one taste-toxin(More)
BACKGROUND The synthetic melanocortin (MC) agonist, melanotan-II (MTII), reduces food intake and body weight for hours to days after administration. One early report on the effect of MTII suggested that part of its anorexic action may be mediated by aversive consequences. In that experiment, MTII was found to support a mild conditioned taste aversion (CTA).(More)
