The solubilities of extracellular polysaccharide fractions produced by 14 oral streptococcal strains were compared in water, aqueous lithium and guanidine salt solutions, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), and a 9:1 DMSO-water mixture. The best results for solubilizing the fractions were obtained with the DMSO-water mixture procedure, which used the water and DMSO(More)
Parotid saliva samples from caries-resistant and caries-rampant individuals were electrophoresed on polyacrylamide gel slabs. The parotid saliva of the caries-rampant group showed a significantly higher level of anodemigrating proteins, predominantly isoamylases, and a significantly lower level of cathode-migrating proteins than that of the caries-resistant(More)
Formation of a Schiff base between the ethylamine residue of serotonin and an appropriate carbonyl residue at the receptor site may be among the forces holding serotonin onto the receptor. Reduction of this imine may provide a means of permanently labeling receptors as a preliminary to their isolation.
Accurate measurement of the intensity of the proton and the anti-proton beams is a basic requirement of the Tevatron instrumentation. The proton and anti-proton fluxes enter directly into a calculation of the luminosity provided to the experiments and the life-times of the different beams can give information on the mechanisms for beam loss. Since the(More)
Pooled paratoid saliva was dialyzed in cellophane membranes against water for periods of up to 1 week and loss of proteins was monitored by acrylamide gel-electrophoresis. A gradual loss of cationic proteins was observed whereas anionic proteins were not appreciably affected. Loss of the cationic proteins could be greatly reduced by performing dialyses(More)
