Soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr) leaves contain a low level (0.05 micromole per gram fresh weight) of gamma-aminobutyric acid (Gaba) but the concentration of this non-protein amino acid increased to 1 to 2 micromoles per gram fresh weight within 5 minutes after transfer of plants or detached leaves from 33 degrees C to 22 degrees C or lower temperatures.

Mechanistically, hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) appears useful for the treatment of osteomyelitis. HBO increases the oxygen tension in infected tissue, including bone. An adequate oxygen tension is necessary for oxygen-dependent killing of organisms by the polymorphonuclear leukocytes and for fibroblast activity leading to angiogenesis and wound healing. HBO has a(More)
A polylactic-polyglycolic acid synthetic absorbable suture material (Vicryl, Polyglactin 910) was compared with black silk and plain catgut in human oral tissues. Inflammation was graded clinically and histologically after seven days. Handling characteristics, including suture retention, were evaluated. Vicryl and black silk sutures produced comparable(More)
A study was developed in an attempt to investigate the possible usefulness of the local anesthetic agent, bupivacaine hydrochloride, for oral surgery. The results show that bupivacaine hydrochloride is an effective local anesthetic agent. It has a rapid onset time, a high frequency of surgical anesthesia, a long duration, and a low incidence of side(More)

Bacteriol. 91:309-311. 1965.-Extracts of erythrocytes infected with Anaplasma marginale were found to contain more catalase activity than normal erythrocytic preparations. The increase in catalase activity appeared concurrently with(More)
The resurrection of W. E. B. Du Bois as a pioneering social scientist foundational to the field of sociology is a project that has been underway, arguably, for at least three decades (Bobo 2007). One important entry in this intellectual project came with the publication by the University of Chicago Press, in its " Heritage of Sociology Series, " under the(More)
