Thermodynamic considerations predict changes of the Na+ pump current (Ip)-voltage (V) relationship of animal cells upon variations of the electrochemical gradients against which cations must be pumped. Experimental data in support of the predictions are sparse. Therefore, the effect on the Ip-V relationship of various electrochemical gradients for pumped(More)

Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) are counted among the most toxic substances known and are responsible for human botulism, a life-threatening disease characterized by flaccid muscle paralysis that occurs naturally by food poisoning or colonization of the gastrointestinal tract by BoNT-producing clostridia. To date, 7 serologically distinct serotypes of BoNT(More)
The new generation shell, eGanges, designed for PDAs, is evaluated as a peace aid. Its interactive visualization of navigable, nested fishbones, called Rivers because of their tributary structure and flow, can represent the major deductive premises of rules, procedures, policies, causation or strategies (RPPCS). Minor deductive premises are collected from(More)
The inferential operations of mildly mentally retarded students reading at the intermediate level were investigated using methods based on discourse comprehension theory. We hypothesized that problems encountered in reading by these students are related to difficulties in generating logical inferences. Mildly retarded junior-high students and nonretarded(More)
