Techniques employing base specific deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-binding fluorochromes and flow cytometry (FCM) are potentially useful for obtaining information of the compositional features of chromatin or chromosomes of mammalian cells. Fluorescent compounds which form complexes preferentially at the A-T rich regions (i.e., DNA-reactive Hoechst dyes) or the(More)
A large body of nonexperimental literature finds residing in a disadvantaged neighborhood is deleterious for mental health, and recent evidence from the Moving to Opportunity (MTO) program—a social experiment giving families living in high-poverty neighborhoods the opportunity to move to low-poverty neighborhoods—suggests a causal effect of moving to a(More)
Electrical and ionic penetration of latex gloves, both intact and with holes, was investigated using salt solutions. Also, simultaneous measurements were made of electrical conduction and bacteriophage penetration, and the effect of latex stretching on effective hole size. The presence of holes was apparent, although the onset of current passage was often(More)

A variant population (CdR) of cultured Chinese hamster cells (line CHO) was derived that is more than 100 times as resistant to the cytotoxic effects of Cd2+ than is the parent population. The effects on RNA metabolism of exposure to sublethal concentrations of Cd2+ were studied in CHO and CdR. Exposure to 2 X 10(-7) M CdCl2 for 24 h resulted in increased(More)
