To identify the mechanisms underlying muscle aging, we have undertaken a high-resolution differential proteomic analysis of gastrocnemius muscle in young adults, mature adults, and old LOU/c/jall rats. Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and subsequent MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry analyses led to the identification of 40 differentially expressed proteins.(More)
Development of urban groundwater has historically been constrained by concerns about its quality. Rising urban water tables and overabstraction from rural aquifers in the UK have led to a renewed interest in urban groundwater, particularly the possibility of finding water of acceptable quality at depth. This study assessed the microbial quality of(More)
Current strategies to protect groundwater sources from microbial contamination (e.g., wellhead protection areas) rely upon natural attenuation of microorganisms between wells or springs and potential sources of contamination and are determined using average (macroscopic) groundwater flow velocities defined by Darcy's Law. However, field studies of sewage(More)
ion for dry-season irrigation and wet-season (monsoonal) recharge. We show that 20 GRACE (CSR, GRGS) datasets of recent (2003 to 2007) groundwater storage changes 21 (ΔGWS) correlate well (r=0.77 to 0.93, p-value <0.0001) with in situ borehole records from a 22 network of 236 monitoring stations and account for 44% of the total variation in terrestrial 23(More)
Deeply weathered crystalline rock aquifer systems comprising unconsolidated saprolite and underlying fractured bedrock (saprock) underlie 40% of sub-Saharan Africa. The vulnerability of this aquifer system to contamination, particularly in rapidly urbanizing areas, remains poorly understood. In order to assess solute and viral transport in saprolite derived(More)
1 Ground water is an almost ubiquitous source of generally high-quality fresh water. These characteristics promote its widespread development, which can be scaled and localized to demand, obviating the need for substantial infrastructure1. Globally, ground water is the source of one third of all freshwater withdrawals, supplying an estimated 36%, 42% and(More)
Postmortem tenderization is caused by enzymatic degradation of key structural proteins in myofibrils as well as in extracellular matrix, and of proteins involved in intermyofibrillar linkages and linkages between myofibrils and the sarcolemma. The function of these proteins is to maintain the structural integrity of myofibrils. Current data indicate that(More)
This paper presents a preface to this Special Issue on the results of the QUEST-GSI (Global Scale Impacts) project on climate change impacts on catchment scale water resources. A detailed description of the unified methodology, subsequently used in all studies in this issue, is provided. The project method involved running simulations of catchmentscale(More)
Idaho’s potato growers face increasing price and production risks as the potato industry undergoes structural change. In response, producers have shortened potato crop rotation to counteract the price risk. A risk-neutral discrete stochastic sequential programming (DSSP) model was developed to analyze the affects of the shortened rotation on expected(More)
Three travel cost models are used to estimate non-fishing recreation demand at the Snake River reservoirs recreation area in eastern Washington. The opportunity cost of time is specified in the "traditional" and McConnell-Strand models as a fraction of the exogenous market wage rate and in the two-step decision model as a function of socioeconomic(More)
