A non-redundant database of nuclear, protein-encoding, genomic DNA sequences highlighting nuclear pre-mRNA introns was constructed using information contained in the SWISS-PROT and GenBank sequence databases. This Intron DataBase (IDB) contains information about (i) introns (including nucleotide sequence, location, phase, length, GC content and(More)
The sequence of a genomic clone encoding a 100-kDa stress protein of Plectonema boryanum (p-ClpB) was determined. The predicted polypeptide contains two putative ATPase regions located within two highly conserved domains (N1 and N2), a spacer region that likely forms a coiled-coil domain, and a highly conserved consensus CK2 phosphorylation domain. The(More)
The effects of ethanol administered as a 15% solution in drinking fluid on weight gain, soluble liver protein and the activity of the three enzymes of oxygen radical metabolism (i.e., superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase) were studied in five inbred strains of mice (129/ReJ, BALB/c, C3H/HeSnJ, C57BL/6J, Csb) and Sprague Dawley rats,(More)
Fungal fimbriae are surface appendages that were first described on the haploid cells of the smut fungus, Microbotryum violaceum. They are long (1-20 microm), narrow (7 nm) flexuous structures that have been implicated in cellular functions such as mating and pathogenesis. Since the initial description, numerous fungi from all five phyla have been shown to(More)
The catalase activity in the liver, kidney, lung, and blood hemolysate was measured in newborn, 21-, 70-, 175-, and greater than 400-day-old mice from the strains BALB/c, Csb, C3H/HeSnJ, C3H/S, C57BL/6J, SW, and 129/ReJ. Catalase activity was found to be highest in the liver (approximately 0.33 U/mg protein) followed by the kidney (approximately 0.13 U/mg(More)
Neuroendocrine tumors of the rectum constitute approximately 19 per cent of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). The histologic characteristics of the tumor seem to be an indicative prognostic factor. Optimal treatment of NETS of the rectum has been widely debated, but more recent studies suggest that treatment depends upon the size. The medical(More)
Recently, the incidence of bronchopulmonary carcinoid has increased substantially, whereas survival associated with both subtypes has declined. We reviewed our experience with bronchopulmonary carcinoid to identify factors associated with long-term survival. We reviewed our cancer registry from 1985 to 2009 for all patients undergoing surgical resection(More)
Selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase activity was assessed in the liver, kidney, lung and blood of mice from seven strains (129/ReJ, BALB/c, C3H/HeSnJ, C3H/S, C57BL/6J, Csb, and S.W.) at five ages (newborn, 21, 70, 175 and +500 days old). Activity was highest in the liver (0.25 U/mg protein) followed by blood hemolysate (0.16 U/mg protein) with kidney(More)
Focus CUR Introduction Furman University is the oldest, largest, and most selective private institution in South Carolina. Founded in 1826, Furman is one of the leading liberal-arts colleges in the United States and is an exemplar of a new type of liberal-arts institution that is grounded in the humanities, arts, and sciences and that promotes development(More)
