We report the first results from a search for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) in the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search experiment at the Soudan Underground Laboratory. Four Ge and two Si detectors were operated for 52.6 live days, providing 19.4 kg d of Ge net exposure after cuts for recoil energies between 10 and 100 keV. A blind analysis was(More)
We search for the technicolor process pp-->rhoT/omegaT-->WpiT in events containing one electron and two jets, in data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 390 pb(-1), recorded by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. Technicolor predicts that technipions pi(T) decay dominantly into bb, bc, or bc, depending on their charge. In these events b(More)
We evaluated concentrations of excitatory amino acids released from slices into the superfusing solution and also evaluated extracellular field potential recordings and histological appearance of slice tissues to evaluate several sodium-channel modulating drugs as potential treatments for ischemia. The selective sodium-channel blocker tetrodotoxin (TTX, 1(More)
Glutamate and/or aspartate is the probable transmitter released from synaptic terminals of the CA3-derived Schaffer collateral, commissural, and ipsilateral associational fibers in area CA1 of the rat hippocampal formation. Slices of the CA1 area were employed to test the effects of adenosine- and gamma-aminobutyrate (GABA)-related compounds on the release(More)
Excitatory synaptic transmission in the CNS can be modulated by endogenous substances and metabolic states that alter release of the transmitter, usually glutamate and/or aspartate. To explore this issue, we have studied the release of endogenous glutamate and aspartate from synaptic terminals of the CA3-derived Schaffer collateral, commissural and(More)
The neurofibromatosis 2 tumor suppressor protein, merlin or schwannomin, functions as a negative growth regulator; however, its mechanism of action is not known. In an effort to determine how merlin regulates cell growth, we analyzed a recently identified novel merlin interactor, hepatocyte growth factor-regulated tyrosine kinase substrate (HRS). We(More)
The neurofibromatosis 2 tumor suppressor protein schwannomin/merlin is commonly mutated in schwannomas and meningiomas. Schwannomin, a member of the 4.1 family of proteins, which are known to link the cytoskeleton to the plasma membrane, has little known function other than its ability to suppress tumor growth. Using yeast two-hybrid interaction cloning, we(More)
BABAR, the detector for the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric e þ e À B Factory operating at the Uð4SÞ resonance, was designed to allow comprehensive studies of CP-violation in B-meson decays. Charged particle tracks are measured in a multi-layer silicon vertex tracker surrounded by a cylindrical wire drift chamber. Electromagnetic showers from electrons and photons(More)
The meta-analysis technique of literature review was applied to a total of 26 previous studies to assess the longitudinal stability of postretention mandibular intercanine width. Weighted averages and standard deviations for the means of 1,233 subjects were compared for linear changes in intercanine transverse dimensions during treatment (T1), immediately(More)
