Effects of benzene inhalation on mouse pluripotent hematopoietic stem cells have been evaluated. Male mice 8--12 wk old were exposed to 400 ppm benzene for 6 h/d, 5 d/wk, for up to 9 1/2 wk. At various time intervals exposed and control animals were killed, and cardiac blood was evaluated for changes in white blood cell (WBC) and red blood cell (RBC)(More)
OPT-80, a novel, minimally absorbed macrocycle, is a candidate treatment option for Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) based on cure without recurrence of CDI in the hamster challenge model, good in vitro activity against C. difficile, and relative sparing of commensal gram-negative anaerobes. In this open-label, dose-ranging clinical trial, 48 evaluable(More)
Different G(1) cyclins confer functional specificity to the cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk) Cdc28p in budding yeast. The Cln3p G(1) cyclin is localized primarily to the nucleus, while Cln2p is localized primarily to the cytoplasm. Both binding to Cdc28p and Cdc28p-dependent phosphorylation in the C-terminal region of Cln2p are independently required for(More)
The G(1) cyclins of budding yeast drive cell cycle initiation by different mechanisms, but the molecular basis of their specificity is unknown. Here we test the hypothesis that the functional specificity of G(1) cyclins is due to differential subcellular localization. As shown by indirect immunofluorescence and biochemical fractionation, Cln3p localization(More)
The present study examined the discriminative stimulus effects of the D3 dopamine receptor antagonist PNU-99194A [5,6-di-methoxy-2-(dipropylamino)indan-hydrochloride] in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Eight rats were trained to discriminate cocaine (10 mg/kg, i.p.) from saline in a two-choice, water-reinforced drug discrimination procedure. In tests of stimulus(More)
Serum erythropoietin levels were randomly collected and measured by a sensitive radioimmunoassay in a hemodialysis population. For analysis, the patients were divided into two groups: those with polycystic kidney disease and those with other kidney diseases. In 12 polycystic kidney disease patients, serum erythropoietin was 22.6 +/- 2.4 mU/ml, hematocrit(More)
In the absence of shielding, "ordinary" nuclear weapons-those containing kilogram quantities of ordinary weapon-grade (6 percent plutonium-240) plutonium or uranium238-can be detected by neutron or gamma counters at a distance of tens of meters. Objects such as missile canisters can be radiographed with high-energy x-rays to reveal the presence of the dense(More)
Serum levels of immunoreactive erythropoietin (Ep) were measured in 48 normal male and female volunteers, ages 20-60 years, to establish a control value for Ep of 18.5 +/- 5.0 (mean +/- SD) mU/ml. Levels of the hormone were also measured sequentially over a 24 h period of time in an additional 17 'normal' volunteers with no diurnal variation. Diurnal levels(More)
