Complex genetic models and segregation analysis were applied to family data obtained in a hyperendemic goiter area in Brazil. The single locus and Falconer's models did not fit the data. Edward's model showed convergency, ...
Protein synthesis studies in skeletal muscle of aging rats. II. In vitro studies with 0.5M potassium chloride washed polyribosomes
To investigate further the age-related reduction in muscle protein synthesis activity found previously using a crude polyribosome/pH 5 system (Pluskal et al., 1984), a 0.5M KCl washing procedure was utilized to remove the ...
Uptake of bacteria by trophozoites of Giardia duodenalis (Say)
Rod-like bacteria were found in the cytoplasm of trophozoites of Giardia duodenalis (Say) in domestic rats (Rattus rattus). These structures were always in phagocytic vacuoles without signs of bacteria digestion or degradation ...
