Recent studies of Saccharomyces cerevisiae revealed sensors that detect extracellular amino acids (Ssy1p) or glucose (Snf3p and Rgt2p) and are evolutionarily related to the transporters of these nutrients. An intriguing question is whether the evolutionary transformation of transporters into nontransporting sensors reflects a homeostatic capability of… (More)
Invasive bacterial disease occurs frequently among native populations in the Arctic. Although a variety of bacteria are involved in invasive bacterial disease in Greenland, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and other staphylococci are responsible for most cases (69%); incidence varies according to region and ethnicity.
Synchronization between single motor unit (SMU) discharges in separate muscles has been estimated from peaks in averaged electromyographic (EMG) recordings from one muscle triggered from SMU discharge in another. This study evaluated the effect of EMG signal cancellation on this measure of synchronization. SMU activity was recorded with 8 fine-wire… (More)
