Amine and carboxyl groups of the cell wall of Bacillus subtilis were chemically modified individually to neutralize their electrochemical charge for determination of their contribution to the metal uptake process. Mild alkali treatment removed ca. 94% of the constituent teichoic acid (expressed as inorganic phosphorus) and allowed estimation of metal(More)
Ten men repeatedly performed leg exercise (100-150 W) for 7 min with 30-min recovery periods interspersed. Both legs were made ischemic by total occlusion (OCCL), first for 3 min immediately after exercise and second for 30 s before exercise ended and 3 min into recovery. In addition legs were occluded for 3 min at rest (seated). OCCL at rest increased mean(More)
ST amplitude distributions were studied in 41 patients with acute myocardial infarction by deriving isopotential maps from a 5 x 7 electrode precordial matrix. Independent data on infarct size and localization were obtained utilizing the technetium 99m stannous pyrophosphate scintigraphic method. The locus of maximal ST elevation was stable for at least two(More)
Sections and freeze-fractured preparations showed an S layer on the surface of Pseudomonas-like strain EU2. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of cell envelopes extracted with 1% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) at room temperature showed three proteins (45K, 55K, and 110K). The 55K protein was identified as the S-layer protein. Incubation in 1.5 M guanidine(More)
Cells of Bacillus subtilis, when suspended in a 5mM metal solution, bind metals tenaciously to their cell walls. These metal-loaded cells, when mixed with a synthetic sediment and put under laboratory conditions to simulate low-temperature sediment diagenesis, nucleate the formation of a mixed assemblage of crystalline metal phosphates, metal sulfides, and(More)
