So-called sulfur-turf microbial mats, which are macroscopic white filaments or bundles consisting of large sausage-shaped bacteria and elemental sulfur particles, occur in sulfide-containing hot springs in Japan. However, no thermophiles from sulfur-turf mats have yet been isolated as cultivable strains. This study was undertaken to determine the(More)
BACKGROUND Ribosomes in Escherichia coli change their composition and conformation in the stationary phase. Ribosome modulation factor (RMF) and ribosomal protein S22 are known to be associated with stationary phase ribosomes. RMF association causes the loss of translational activity and the dimerization of 70S ribosomes into 100S ribosomes, which may(More)
Primary intracranial germinomas constitute about 1 % of primary intracranial neoplasms [1] . They occur commonly in the pineal and suprasellar regions in childhood, and they usually present with symptoms related to increased intracranial pressure or hypothalamic dysfunction [2-5] . They rarely develop in the basal ganglia, and only 16 cases have been(More)
A serious intracerebral hemorrhage occurred as a result of a measurement for grip power performed on the 7th postoperative day of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. This type of delayed intracerebral hemorrhage after the placement of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt has not been described in the literature. The increased intracranial venous pressure produced by(More)
Twenty-five patients with tumors of the central nervous system received bromodeoxyuridine (BUdR), 200 mg/sq m, by intravenous infusion every 8 hours for 3 days before surgery. Excised tumor specimens were fixed in chilled 70% ethanol, embedded in paraffin, and cut into 6-micron sections. Each section was reacted with monoclonal antibodies against BUdR and(More)
7 pediatric patients with injuries of basal ganglia following head trauma were reported. They ranged in age from 10 months to 10 years. 5 boys and 2 girls comprised the patients. Cases 1--4 are mild cases in which the children fell down backward while playing, followed by a minimum loss of consciousness. In every case there was hemiparesis, but all of them(More)
Rats treated with streptozotocin (STZ) during the neonatal period have been used as a model of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. The present study was designed to produce another diabetes model by substituting alloxan for STZ. Male Sprague-Dawley rats of 2, 4 or 6 days of age were injected intraperitoneally with 200 mg/kg of alloxan monohydrate after(More)
A case is reported in which an aneurysm arising at the junction of the right internal carotid artery and a persistent primitive trigeminal artery ruptured to form a carotid-cavernous fistula. The internal carotid artery was ligated without any signs of brain-stem ischemia due to inverted blood flow through the primitive trigeminal artery.
The antisecretory and antiulcer activities of 2[[[3-methyl-4-(2,2,2-trifluoroethoxy)-2-pyridyl]methyl] sulfinyl]-1H-benzimidazole (AG-1749) were investigated in dogs and rats. AG-1749 inhibited both the (H+ + K+)-adenosine triphosphatase activity in canine gastric microsomes and dibutyryl cyclic AMP-stimulated acid formation in isolated canine parietal(More)
Indomethacin produces gastric corpus erosions in the fasted rat and small intestinal ulcers in the conventionally fed rat. We found that in rats fed chow pellets for 1 h after a 24-h fast, indomethacin given within 2 h after refeeding produced lesions in the gastric antrum, primarily along the lesser curvature, and also in the small intestine. The antral(More)
