Calcium hydroxide is a material which has been used for a variety of purposes since its introduction into dentistry in the early part of the twentieth century. In its pure form, the substance has a high pH, and its dental use relates chiefly to its ability to stimulate mineralization, and also to its antibacterial properties. A range of products has been(More)
Trichoderma reesei is a filamentous fungus widely used as an efficient protein producer and known to secrete large quantities of biomass degrading enzymes. Much work has been done aimed at improving the secretion efficiency of this fungus. It is generally accepted that the major bottlenecks in secretion are protein folding and ornamentation steps in this(More)
This study reviews the 'real world' potential (i.e. efficacy and effectiveness) of restorative approaches towards home care for frail older adults. Such approaches aim to go beyond traditional home care goals of 'maintenance' and 'support' towards improvements in functional status and quality of life. Our review of the literature included searches of health(More)

The cellular levels of the three translational initiation factors, IF1, IF2, and IF3, increase as a function of growth rate in parallel with those of ribosomes. Therefore both ribosomal and initiation factor gene expression is under metabolic control. To address how expression of the Escherichia coli gene for IF1, infA, is regulated, a 3-kilobase region of(More)
We have conducted in vivo investigations of the rate of clearance of prepared antibody/dsDNA immune complexes from the circulation of rabbits and have correlated the results with some in vitro immunologic properties of the complexes. Those complexes that fix complement most efficiently in vitro (as manifested by their complement-mediated binding to human(More)
Data from an applied research project on ageism among health professionals were used to examine nurses' attitudes toward aging and working with older adults. Nurses were compared with groups of other health professionals, and sources of variation within the nurses (e.g., employer, work setting, gerontology education) were examined. Nurses had less accurate(More)
