Cultivars of several cereal crops have been developed with acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS)
insensitivity to imidazolinone herbicides and are now an important tool for weed management.
Options for screening for imidazolinone resistant lines include direct herbicide application,
biochemical assays for AHAS activity and DNA-based methods. Herbicide and biochemical
assays for AHAS...
The utero-ovarian vasculature of domestic animals has been a
popular research subject, especially concerning the roles of the uteroovarian
artery and vein in the unilateral luteolytic phenomenon
demonstrated in these animals. No reports in the literature, however,
have been found regarding the smooth muscle physiology of these vessels.
Thirty-six female guinea pigs were placed on a scorbutogenic
diet for 14 days and then divided into groups of four. Three groups
received adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) with each group given
10, 20, or 40 units. Three groups each received 50 mg of ascorbic
acid and three groups received 50 mg...
This investigation attempts to demonstrate that the development
of the early 20th century biological enterprise involved a striving for a
unifying theoretical perspective. A skeletal substantiation of this is
given by an overview of early 20th century biology in which some
biologists began recognizing a multiplicity of different orders of...
Perdeutero-spiropentane (C₅D₈) has been synthesized and infrared and Raman spectra are reported for the first time. Wavenumber assignments are made for most of the fundamental vibrational modes. Gas phase infrared spectra were recorded at a resolution (0.002 cm⁻¹) sufficient to resolve individual rovibrational lines and show evidence of strong Coriolis...
