The localization of protochorophyllide (Pchlide) and of NADPH-protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase (POR, EC 1.6.99.1) within (etio)chloroplasts has been investigated at selected stages of greening of barley seedlings. Pchlide pigment and POR protein contents were evaluated in different plastid membrane fractions by fluorescence spectroscopy and immunoblot(More)
BACKGROUND Three doses of the investigational AS02(v)-adjuvanted hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccine HB-AS02 have been shown to induce more rapid seroprotection and higher anti-HBs antibody concentrations in patients with renal insufficiency than four doses of FENDrix™ (HB-AS04), an adjuvanted HBV vaccine licensed in Europe for use in this population.

Observed crest speeds of maximally steep, breaking water waves are much slower than expected. Our fully nonlinear computations of unsteadily propagating deep water wave groups show that each wave crest approaching its maximum height slows down significantly and either breaks at this reduced speed, or accelerates forward unbroken. This previously noted crest(More)
