Type IV bundle-forming pili of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli are required for the localized adherence and autoaggregation phenotypes. Whether these pili are also required for virulence was tested in volunteers by inactivating bfpA or bfpT (perA) encoding, respectively, the pilus subunit and the bfp operon transcriptional activator. Both mutants caused(More)
The bundle-forming pili (BFP) of enteropathogenic Escherichia coil (EPEC) are required for the development of circumscribed colonies of bacteria attached to the surfaces of cultured epithelial cells, a process termed the localized adherence (LA) phenotype. Similar lesions are evident in jejunal biopsies from EPEC-infected children. BFP production is not(More)
The connectivity index, easily computed by arithmetic and based upon the degree of connectedness at each vertex in the molecular skeleton, is shown to give highly significant correlations with water solubility of branched, cyclic, and straight-chain alcohols and hydrocarbons as well as with boiling points of alcohols. These correlations are superior to(More)
The concept of the expanded series of the connectivity index, chi, is introduced and applied to a consideration of the density of three classes of molecules. Correlations are found using two terms in the expanded series. A preliminary reflection on the extended series terms is made. It is noted that the regression equation constant in the three studies is(More)
A very significant linear correlation was found between a recently proposed connectivity index and molecular polarizability, cavity surface areas calculated for water solubility of alcohols and hydrocarbons, and biological potencies of nonspecific local anesthetics. The simplicity of calculation of the index from the connectivity in the molecular skeleton,(More)
The ability of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) to induce lipid peroxidation and DNA damage in rat hepatic nuclei was investigated. In addition, the role of iron in hepatic DNA damage was examined. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were treated with a single dose of 25--100 micrograms TCDD/kg orally, and sacrificed 3-14 days after treatment. Liver nuclei(More)
The ATLAS SemiConductor Tracker (SCT) is a silicon-strip tracking detector which forms part of the ATLAS inner detector. The SCT is designed to track charged particles produced in proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN at an energy of 14 TeV. The tracker is made up of a central barrel and two identical end-caps. The barrel(More)
The ABCD3TA is a 128-channel ASIC with binary architecture for the readout of silicon strip particle detectors in the Semiconductor Tracker of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The chip comprises fast front-end and amplitude discriminator circuits using bipolar devices, a binary pipeline for first level trigger latency, a second level(More)
Nifedipine is a photosensitive compound. Irradiation for 4 h under a fluorescent lamp placed 30 cm from a solution of nifedipine in 95% ethanol leads to complete photo-oxidation as determined spectrophotometrically. The disappearance of the reduced form and appearance of the oxidized form is best described by zero-order kinetics at concentrations higher(More)
1. 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCCD)-induced lipid peroxidation has previously been demonstrated by assessing the hepatic content of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) as well as the NADPH-dependent microsomal formation of TBARS as well as the NADPH-dependent microsomal formation of TBARS using malondialdehyde as the standard. 2.(More)
