The bacterial causes of subclinical mastitis were determined in samples of milk taken from one half of the udders of 159 goats in three different herds. The mean prevalence of subclinical infection was 33 percent, with prevalences of 26 percent, 39 percent and 42 percent in the three herds. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from seven (13 percent) of the(More)
Dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) is of significant recent interest as a target for drugs against parasitic and opportunistic infections. Understanding factors which influence DHFR homolog inhibitor specificity is critical for the design of compounds that selectively target DHFRs from pathogenic organisms over the human homolog. This paper presents a novel(More)
In this study, the antiproliferative activity of the organic solvent-soluble and aqueous extracts of Ocimum gratissimum leaf against the prostate cancer cells PC3·AR were evaluated by their inhibitory effects on the Androgen Receptor (AR) and Survivin protein. Two organic solvent-soluble extracts P2 and P3-2, and a water- soluble extract, PS/PT1, were found(More)
A fluorescently-labeled, conformationally-sensitive Bacillus stearothermophilus (Bs) dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) (C73A/S131C(MDCC) DHFR) was developed and used to investigate kinetics and protein conformational motions associated with methotrexate (MTX) binding. This construct bears a covalently-attached fluorophore,(More)
A USDA Early Response Team investigated deaths of several horses and a mule in northern Arizona at the request of local animal health officials. Thirteen animals (12 horses and 1 mule) housed at 5 facilities in a 7.4 square mile area died between August 1998 and January 1999. Clinical signs consisted of muscular weakness that rapidly progressed to lateral(More)
The authors describe two patients who required massive doses of benzodiazepines to treat complicated alcohol and sedative withdrawal delirium. Some of the factors that contribute to difficulties in management are discussed. Finally, we describe the advantages and disadvantages of high dose pharmacologic management and controversies regarding(More)
