This study was undertaken to assess the suitability of urinary 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHPyr) as a biological marker of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) exposure in coal liquefaction workers. This is believed to be the first evaluation of the method in coal liquefaction workers. Ten workers were selected from a group of 30 workers considered likely to be at(More)
The objec t of the exper iments here described, and of others to be repor ted later , has been to de termine if possible wherein lies the differcene between the composi t ion of blood of h u m a n individuals hav ing syphili t ic infection and of normal blood of the species. The present paper , dealing with surface tension and solubility, a ims to show t h(More)
Studies in coal liquefaction workers were conducted to examine relationships between work activities, exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and excretion of urinary 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP). In a single-week study in operators, the end of work period 1-OHP excretion was an order of magnitude higher than in a shadow control subject, who(More)
The effect of hyaluronate on chondrogenesis in cultures of chick limb-bud mesoderm cells, derived from stage 20--21, 23--24 and 26 embryos grown at different cell densities and in 3 different culture media, was studied. The results show that hyaluronate at a concentration of 500 microgram/ml, does not consistently produce an inhibition of chondrogenesis in(More)
Stringent control of ion and protein transport across the mitochondrial membranes is required to maintain mitochondrial function and biogenesis. In particular, the inner mitochondrial membrane is generally impermeable to proteins entering the matrix except via tightly regulated protein import mechanisms. Recently, cell penetrant peptides have been shown to(More)
THESE EXPERIMENTS SHOW: 1. That the surface tension of normal blood serum is considerably lowered by standing undisturbed for a period of 1 hour (time-drop). 2. That the greatest time-drop recorded is with serum diluted approximately 10,000 times in fresh serum, and 50,000 times in heated serum. 3. That immune serum is not affected in the same manner by(More)
