An eight-rat eight-station operant conditioning arena was used to study the spatial structure and temporal stability of foraging dispersion patterns. Food was obtained by bar pressing as the population was exposed to an ascending series of the fixed and variable aspects of ratio and interval schedules of reinforcement. Dispersion patterns, defined by the(More)
The nucleotide and amino acid sequences of the mRNA and predicted polypeptide of the integral membrane small hydrophobic (SH) protein of human respiratory syncytial virus strain 18537 (a prototype strain of antigenic subgroup B) were determined from cloned cDNA. At the nucleotide and amino acid levels there was 78% and 76% identity, respectively, with the(More)
The ancestors of the human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV-1 and HIV-2) may have evolved from a reservoir of African nonhuman primate lentiviruses, termed simian immunodeficiency viruses (SIV). None of the SIV strains characterized so far are closely related to HIV-1. HIV-2, however, is closely related to SIV (SIVmac) isolated from captive rhesus macaques(More)
Proteolysis by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway is often regulated, but the mechanisms underlying such regulation remain ill-defined. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, cell type is controlled by the MAT transcription factors. The alpha2 repressor is a known ubiquitin pathway substrate in alpha haploid cells. We show that a1 is rapidly degraded in a haploids. In(More)
Previous studies suggested that simian immunodeficiency viruses isolated from African green monkeys (SIVagm) are relatively nonpathogenic. The report describes the isolation and biologic and molecular characterization of a pathogenic SIVagm strain derived from a naturally infected African green monkey. This virus induced an AIDS-like syndrome characterized(More)
A 2330 nucleotide sequence spanning the 1B (NS2), IC (NS1) and N genes and intergenic regions of human respiratory syncytial virus strain 18537, representing antigenic subgroup B, was determined by sequencing cloned cDNAs of intracellular mRNAs. Comparison with the previously reported sequences for strain A2 of subgroup A showed that 1B, 1C and N were(More)
17 culating parity for small writes expensive when disks are distributed over the network. SNS combats this problem by using a RAID level 1 (mirrored) architecture, but this approach approximately doubles the space overhead for storing redundant data. AutoRAID addresses this dilemma by storing data that is actively being written to a RAID level 1 and(More)
