The central grassland region of North America is characterized by large gradients of temperature and precipitation. These climatic variables are important determinants of the distribution of plant species, and strongly influence plant morphology and tissue chemistry. We analysed regional patterns of plant litter quality as they vary with climate in(More)

6085 Background: We evaluated the prognostic significance of thymidylate synthase (TS), and Excision Repair Cross-Complementation Group 1 protein (ERCC1) in patients (pts) with nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT). METHODS Pretreatment tumor biopsy specimens from 41 pts with locally advanced NPC were analyzed for TS(More)
Yeast exopolysaccharide (EPS) are composed of unique sugar units, which offers an interesting perspective with respect to various food applications. This study aimed to characterize the EPS from Rhodotorula minuta BIOTECH 2178. Toxicological assessment of the EPS was investigated to ensure that it is safe for human consumption. The yeast EPS revealed high(More)

Two week old female Rhode Island Red chicks were subjected to closed fracture of the right radius in order to study the effect of estrogen and a 2 g hypergravity environment on post fracture metabolism of callus. The healing area showed a well formed callus after 1 week with a high degree of calcification in 2 weeks. Callus wet weight was lower in(More)
NASA Tech Briefs, April 2007 pose. This macroinstruction code simulates fracture strengths of specimens by use of a combination of a random-number generator (for probability of failure), CARES/Life, and ANSYS finite-element modeling for specimens having randomly chosen dimensions based on a statistical distribution and parameters thereof specified by the(More)
