The Spiritual Assessment Inventory (SAI) is a relationally-based measure designed to assess two dimensions of spiritual development: Awareness of God and Quality of Relationship with God. The present article reports the results of two studies: exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses of a revised SAI, which replicated five factors, and a factor analysis(More)
Given the emphasis on within-subject associations between depression and marital quality in recent theory and practice, this study was undertaken with three goals: to examine within-subject associations between depressive symptoms and marital quality over time, to address gender differences in the magnitude and direction of these associations, and to(More)
We have recently reported that a novel muscle-specific inositide phosphatase (MIP/MTMR14) plays a critical role in [Ca2+]i homeostasis through dephosphorylation of sn-1-stearoyl-2-arachidonoyl phosphatidylinositol (3,5) bisphosphate (PI(3,5)P2). Loss of function mutations in MIP have been identified in human centronuclear myopathy. We developed a MIP(More)
The formation ofp-hydroxytranylcypromine from intraperitoneally injected tranylcypromine was confirmed using two types of experiments. In the first, tranylcypromine levels were shown to be increased in brains of rats pretreated with agents known to be inhibitors of ring hydroxylation compared to rats pretreated with physiological saline. For the second set(More)
Two experiments were conducted to test the antiepileptic properties of CL 218-872, a triazolopyridizine reported to have anxiolytic and anticonvulsant effects without accompanying sedative and ataxic effects. In Experiment 1 pretreatment with CL 218-872, a recently synthesized and potent triazolopyridizine, reduced kainic acid-induced convulsions and(More)
Benzhydryl 2 beta-[(1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)methyl]-2 alpha-methylpenam- 3 alpha-carboxylate 1,1-dioxide was prepared by heating benzhydryl 2 beta-(azidomethyl)-2 alpha-methylpenam-3 alpha-carboxylate 1,1-dioxide with (trimethylsilyl)acetylene. The ester group was removed by hydrogenolysis to give sodium 2 beta-[(1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)methyl]-2 alpha-methylpenam-3(More)
A series of new 5-(1-hydroxy-2-haloethyl)-2'-deoxyuridines (3, 6, 8) were synthesized in 60-70% yields by addition of HOX (X = Br, Cl, I) to the vinyl substituent of the respective 5-vinyl-2'-deoxyuridines (2, 5, 7). Treatment of 3a,b with methanolic sulfuric acid afforded the corresponding 5-(1-methoxy-2-haloethyl)-2'-(deoxyuridines (4a,b). The(More)
A sensitive method was developed to determine permethrin extracted from phosphate buffer and cattle plasma by potassium cyanide catalyzed transesterification of this insecticide with refluxing ethanol and detection of the resulting ethyl esters by capillary gas chromatography with an electron capture detector. With a reflux time of 2 h and with(More)
