Metabolically active heterocysts isolated from wild-type Anabaena sp. strain CA showed high rates of light-dependent acetylene reduction and hydrogen evolution. These rates were similar to those previously reported in heterocysts isolated from the mutant Anabaena sp. strain CA-V possessing fragile vegetative cell walls. Hydrogen production was observed with(More)
OBJECTIVES Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) are autoimmune diseases of the peripheral nervous system. A clinical hallmark of GBS and CIDP is the albumino-cytologic dissociation in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Changes in the CSF levels of proteins other than albumin in patients with GBS and CIDP are(More)
Aerobic photoproduction of H2 was demonstrated in Anabaena spp. strains CA and 1F when cells were growing under nitrogen-fixing conditions. The rates of production, measured either by the hydrogen electrode or in a flow system by gas chromatography, were 10 to 15% of the rate of photosynthetic O2 evolution or 50 to 80% of the rates of acetylene reduction.(More)
Using MS/MS, we have identified ions at m/z 399, 421, 609.4, and 819.9 as those of tris (2-butoxyethyl) phosphate, originating in the gray rubber stoppers commonly used as closures in commercial sources of peptides and proteins. The compound is readily extracted by contact with organic solvents such as alcohol or acetic acid and even by water alone. Zinc(More)
The hexakis (4-diemthylaminopyridyl) benzene hexacation of 1 is investigated as an extreme example of the ability of electrospray ionization to allow transfer of small multivalent ions to the gas phase. The hexacationized benzene ring ions are stabilized by forming gas phase complexes with two to five trifluoromethanesulfonate counterions. MS/MS analysis(More)
A human truncated macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) cDNA encoding amino acid residues from 3 to 149 of the native M-CSF was isolated by using the polymerase chain reaction. When introduced into Saccharomyces cerevisiae by a general secretion vector pVT 102u/alpha, it directs the expression of the biologically active dimeric form of M-CSF. Through(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop an instrument used in measurement of physiological parameters in laboratories or field. Method A: computer was used to process data in the telemetry system. The frequency-time division modulation technique was adopted. The low frequency signals were directly connected to the computer serial port after demodulation, and measurement(More)
