A cDNA library was constructed from RNA from the pericarp of ripe tomato fruit and four cDNAs encoding ADH2 were isolated and characterized. The cDNAs encode a peptide 379 amino acids in length. They hybridized strongly with a 1.8 kb RNA species well represented in RNA from ripe, but not from mature, unripe fruit, and strongly to a similar RNA species(More)
Because self-assessment measures are helpful in identifying handicap/communication difficulties, they have an important place in hearing screening protocols for adult/elderly persons. When impairment is used as the criterion, questionnaire results can be used to calculate sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, and efficiency for a variety of fences.(More)
Retarded adolescents' response to listener feedback was studied using an interpersonal description task. Thirty-six adolescent retarded speakers were asked to describe nonsense line figures for a confederate adult listener so that the listerner could select the same stimuli from an array. The listener responded to the descriptions with a predetermined(More)
The clonotypic T-cell antigen receptor (TCR)-beta chain contains two extracellular intrachain disulfide bonds. It belongs to the immunoglobulin gene superfamily and is subdivided into variable (V), joining (J), diversity (D) and constant (C) region. Monoclonal antibody (MoAb) KJ25 is believed to recognize an epitope in the V-domain of TCR-beta (V beta 3)(More)
We now have technology available to teach speech and language skills to children. We cannot always expect children to carry over or generalize this training and spontaneously use this "trained language" in communication situations, so we now must develop technology for teaching interpersonal communication skills. This report commented on a model presented(More)
