A young patas monkey was run on a treadmill for 15-20 min at speeds in excess of 15 km times h-1 over a range of laboratory air temperatures from 0 to 55 degrees C. Cost of locomotion for the monkey was 83% that predicted for a running mammal of similar weight, 4 kg. At the highest steady-state running of speeds, the patas monkey's energy expenditure was 11(More)
The formation of covalent isopeptide cross-links between cell surface protein molecules by the enzyme transglutaminase C influences cell adhesion and morphology. Retinoid-inducible cross-linking activity associated with this enzyme is present in the developing rat cerebellar cortex [Perry M. J. M. et al. (1995) Neuroscience 65, 1063-1076]. A monoclonal(More)
Covalent cross-linking of cell surface proteins by the calcium-dependent enzyme transglutaminase C may be implicated in cell-cell interactions and growth regulation. We demonstrate the presence of the enzyme in rat cerebellar cortex during postnatal development. Transglutaminase C was induced in cerebellar granule neurons in culture by retinoic acid,(More)
PURPOSE To examine the effect of a home orofacial exercise program on increasing oral aperture among adults with systemic sclerosis (SSc). METHOD Forty-eight adults with SSc were assigned randomly to the multifaceted oral-health intervention or usual dental care control group. Participants with an oral aperture of <40 mm in the intervention group received(More)
