sleep patterns in kleine-levin syndrome.diurnal and nocturnal sleep records were obtained from a male and a female with kleine-levin syndrome, during excessive daytime sleep attacks and while they were asymptomatic. a common pattern of abnormal sleep was seen in both patients even during the asymptomatic period. the female, aflicted with a severe form of periodic hypersomnia, showed nocturnal and diurnal sleep onset rem periods. the different pattern of sleep abnormality in the female could be an expression of the severity of her symp ...200190606
effect of stimulus intensity on short latency somatosensory evoked potentials.the peripheral and central potentials evoked by percutaneous electrical stimulation of the median nerve were investigated in a group of neurologically normal subjects. we found: (1) motor threshold stimulation gave consistently submaximal responses and probably does not represent an optimal intensity for routine use. (2) the sum of motor plus sensory threshold gave potentials which were consistently at, or close to, maximal in amplitude. this intensity was comfortable for all subjects. (3) when ...200190608
biological role of gramicidin s in spore functions. studies on gramicidin-s-negative mutants of bacillus brevis atcc9999.gramicidin-s-negative mutants of bacillus brevis atcc9999 have been isolated with a remarkly higher yield after ethidium bromide or acridine orange treatment, than after n-methyl-n'-nitro-n-nitrosoguanidine treatment. four (miv, smr170, r5 and eb 16) of 38 isolated mutants were characterized with respect to the lesion in gramicidin-s-synthesizing activity. the mutants sporulate to the same extent as the parental strain except mutant smr 170 which sporulates less. however, mutant spores were more ...197990616

[animal experimental studies on the volume expanding effect of hydroxyethyl starch 40000 in the dog acute hemorrhagic shock].after acute hemorrhagic shock in dogs the hemodynamics of hydroxyethyl starch (mw: 40,000) are studied. the experiment shows that this plasma expander has a good efficiency for 3 to 4 hours. the indications of application of this colloidal solution are discussed.197990651
characterization of the antigenic determinants of cholera toxin subunits.the antigenic specificity of purified preparations of a subunit, b subunit, alpha chain, and gamma chain of cholera toxin was studied by double immunodiffusion and radioimmunoassay with antisera produced in rabbits and mice. rabbits immunized with a subunit produced serum antibodies which were capable of binding radiolabeled a subunit, alpha chain, and b subunit. rabbits immunized with alpha chain produced serum antibodies that would bind radiolabeled alpha chain and a subunit. rabbits immunized ...197990654
the indirect rat mast cell degranulation test reconsidered.the indirect rat mast cell degranulation test for the detection of human reaginic antibodies was reinvestigated. when the mast cells were incubated with human reaginic serum at concentrations exceeding approximately 3%, a massive, non-specific histamine release occurred, irrespective of the presence or absence of allergen. at tolerated serum concentrations (below 3%), the allergen concentration did not influence the release process. we conclude that the indirect rat mast cell test is not applica ...197990655
complement profiles in monkeys subjected to aggregate (immune complex) anaphylaxis, and following injection of soluble and particulate polysaccharides.complement profiles were established in four groups of macaca irus monkeys: (i) aggregate (immune complex) anaphylaxis was induced following immunization, with ovalbumin. upon challenge, systemic arterial pressure decreased from 115 to 50 mm hg (mean values) in 10 min. the complement profiles revealed decreases in: c1q to less than 10% of initial value within 5 min; c4 proportional to hypotension; c3 slowly to 60% at 24 h; c5, c6, c7, c8 and factor b to about 80% of initial value in 5--30 min. c ...197990656

establishment, characterization and virus expression of cell lines derived from radiation- and virus-induced lymphomas of c57bl/ka mice.permanent cell lines have been established in vitro from lymphoid tumors induced in c57bh/ka mice by fractionated x-irradiation or by inoculation of the radiation leukemia virus (radov). the cultured cells are lymphoblastic, replicate rapidly in vitro, and are tumorigenic in vivo. the cell surface markers thy 1, ly 1, ly 2,3 and gix are expressed by the lymphoid tumor cells in the mouse and persist in the corresponding cell lines; expression of the h-2 and tl antigens is greatly reduced during i ...197990660
tobacco leaf mesophyll peroxidase. isolation, purification and some properties.two isoperoxidases, p1 and p2, were isolated from tobacco mesophyll leaves by the combined methods of ammonium sulphate precipitation, page and deae-cellulose column chromatography. the ph otpima for p1 and p2 were 7.0 and 7.5 respectively. the values of km for h2o2 were 1.82 and 0.87 mm for p1 and p2. results from this investigationsuggest that these isoperoxidases differ in their electrophoretic, catalytic and physical properties.197990669
purification of a new high activity form of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase from rat liver and the effect of enzyme inactivation on its immunochemical reactivity.a new form of cytoplasmic glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (e.c.1.1.1.49) was purified from rat liver by protamine sulfate precipitation, ammonium sulfate fractionation, ion exchange chromatography with diethylaminoethyl cellulose, and affinity chromatography with cibacron blue agarose and nadp agarose. this form of the enzyme has a specific activity of over 600 units/mg of protein and gives essentially a single band by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. the form of the enzyme isolated by this ...197990677
the inhibition by xanthine phosphodiesterase inhibitors of the induction of alkaline phosphatase activity in hela cells: relationship of enzyme activity to cyclic amp concentrations.the three xanthine derivatives, caffeine, theophylline and 3-isobutyl-1-methyl-xanthine (ibmx) produced dose-dependent increases in cyclic amp concentrations in hela cells after long term treatment. only ibmx produced increases over the first 60 minutes, with a peak of approximately 5-fold control values five to 10 minutes after the addition of the drug. about four hours after the addition of either 0.67 or 1.0 mm ibmx there was a second peak in the concentration of cyclic amp which was at least ...200190681

[clinical application of nk 631, a new derivative of bleomycin (author's transl)].it is impossible to accurately evaluate nk 631 as an anticancer agent from the findings only in the 7 cases; hence, the following is no more than the author's impression about the drug. however, nk 631 appeared to exert a similar anticancer effect to the currently available bleomycin. in other words, the drug will completely cure or greatly improve the early cases of squamous cell carcinoma, and bring about a transient regression in the advanced cases. the response of malignant lymphoma to this ...200190742
