Isolation and Partial Characterization of a Bacterium Which Gives Off Filtrable Cells

Isolation and Partial Characterization of a Bacterium Which Gives Off Filtrable Cells

Date: May 1973
Creator: Siu, Henry H. W.
Description: The present study was on the isolation of a bacterium capable of producing filtrable forms which passed through the 0.45ยต filter membrane and regenerated the parental form; the testing of the true filtrability of the isolate; the relationship between growth of the isolate and appearance of filtrability; partial characterization of the isolate and visualization of the elements that passed through the membrane filter with electron microscopy and shadow casting technique.

Isolation and Partial Characterization of Carotenoid Pigments of Mycobacterium Rhodochrous

Isolation and Partial Characterization of Carotenoid Pigments of Mycobacterium Rhodochrous

Date: August 1971
Creator: Jorgensen, Joyce A.
Description: It was the purpose of this investigation to isolate and characterize the pigments of Mycobacterium rhodochrous by partition behavior, chromatographic data, and absorption spectra. In addition, it was the purpose to determine whether or not the type of pigments found in M. rhodochrous is typical of those found in other mycobacteria.

Isolation, Characterization and Physiological Studies of Cyanide-Utilizing Bacteria

Isolation, Characterization and Physiological Studies of Cyanide-Utilizing Bacteria

Date: December 1991
Creator: Silva Avalos, Juan G. (Juan Guillermo)
Description: Ten bacteria capable of growth on the metal-cyano complex, tetracyanonickelate (II) {K2 [Ni(CN)J } (TCN), supplied as the sole nitrogen source, were isolated. Seven isolates were identified as pseudomonads while the remaining three were classified as Klebsiella species. In addition to TCN, all isolates were able to utilize KCN although it was significantly more toxic. The degradation of TCN was most complete when supplied at growth-limiting concentrations, did not occur when ammonia was present, and resulted in the formation of nickel cyanide [Ni(CN)2] as a degradation product.

The Isolation, Cultivation and Testing of Organisms Anatagonistic to a Streptomycin Resistant Strain of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

The Isolation, Cultivation and Testing of Organisms Anatagonistic to a Streptomycin Resistant Strain of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

Date: 1951
Creator: Banister, Jack Warren
Description: The problem of finding an efficient antibiotic against Pseudomonas aeruginosa which can be used in the clinical treatment of genito-urinary tract infections resistant to treatment by streptomycin has not yet been solved. Therefore, this problem has consisted of first, the acquisition of possible inhibitors of the streptomycin resistant strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa; second, the selection and identification of those which show a marked antagonism toward this organism; third, the determination of the antibiotic spectra of the inhibitors; fourth, the determination of whether the streptomycin resistant strain could also acquire a resistance to the antibiotic produced by its inhibitors; and last, an attempt to evaluate the therapeutic possibilities of the antibiotics demonstrated.

Isolation, Identification and Cultivation of Four Phytopathogenic Fungi

Isolation, Identification and Cultivation of Four Phytopathogenic Fungi

Date: 1951
Creator: Parks, Leroy W.
Description: This investigation includes a morphological and cultural study of four rather common pathogenic fungi one of which attacks Zinnia elegans, one Lagerstroemia indica, one Ligustrum lodense and one Euonymus japonica. The problem includes, first, a determination of the genera of these four fungi as revealed by their morphology in natural habitat; second, a determination of the growth and cultural characteristics of these on Cornmeal, Potato, Bean, Prune and Carrot agars; third, a comparison of the growth and cultural characteristics of these in natural habitat with the same on the various agars used; and fourth, an evaluation of the five artificial culture media in so far as their usage is concerned in the growth and cultivation of these four species of fungi.

Isolation of a  Pseudomonas aeruginosa Aspartate Transcarbamoylase Mutant and the Investigation of Its Growth Characteristics, Pyrimidine Biosynthetic Enzyme Activities, and Virulence Factor Production

Isolation of a Pseudomonas aeruginosa Aspartate Transcarbamoylase Mutant and the Investigation of Its Growth Characteristics, Pyrimidine Biosynthetic Enzyme Activities, and Virulence Factor Production

Date: December 2004
Creator: Hammerstein, Heidi Carol
Description: The pyrimidine biosynthetic pathway is an essential pathway for most organisms. Previous research on the pyrimidine pathway in Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PAO1) has shown that a block in the third step of the pathway resulted in both a requirement for exogenous pyrimidines and decreased ability to produce virulence factors. In this work an organism with a mutation in the second step of the pathway, aspartate transcarbamoylase (ATCase), was created. Assays for pyrimidine intermediates, and virulence factors were performed. Results showed that the production of pigments, haemolysin, and rhamnolipids were significantly decreased from PAO1. Elastase and casein protease production were also moderately decreased. In the Caenorhabditis elegans infection model the nematodes fed the ATCase mutant had increased mortality, as compared to nematodes fed wild type bacteria. These findings lend support to the hypothesis that changes in the pyrimidine biosynthetic pathway contribute to the organism's ability to effect pathogenicity.

The Isolation of GATB Aptitude Patterns for Six Major Fields of Study

The Isolation of GATB Aptitude Patterns for Six Major Fields of Study

Date: August 1965
Creator: Cullum, Felder Wilson
Description: The problem of this study was to isolate General Aptitude Test Battery patterns for persons who have succeeded in certain major fields of study at North Texas State University, Denton, Texas. In addition to the basic problem stated above, an effort was made to (1) determine the significance of the relationships between GATB scores and grade-point averages for all undergraduate courses taken; (2) determine the relationships between GATB scores and grade-point averages for all undergraduate courses in the major field of study, and (3) conduct a survey of all subjects selected for this study to determine their past, present and expected future fields of occupational endeavor since graduation from college and the relationship between such employment and the individual's major field of study in college.

Israel Zangwill as an Apologist

Israel Zangwill as an Apologist

Date: August 1967
Creator: Richman, Harvey A.
Description: Israel Zangwill, novelist, playwright, poet, and essayist, can be understood and appreciated best as an apologist whose chosen mission was to introduce the Jew to the English-speaking reader, a reader who had often see the word Jew on the pages of his literature but seldom had been able to meed an authentic specimen of the group in--or out--of print. This thesis will describe the works of Zangwill from an apologetic standpoint.

The Issue with Latino Voter Turnout: How Does the Issue of Immigration Affect Latino Voter Turnout?

The Issue with Latino Voter Turnout: How Does the Issue of Immigration Affect Latino Voter Turnout?

Date: August 2013
Creator: Robert, John M.
Description: In this study, I investigate how the issue of immigration affects Latino voter turnout. I hypothesize that U.S. Latino citizens who view immigration as highly important and helpful to the United States will be more likely to turn out to vote in midterm and presidential elections. In addition to a contextual analysis on elections in Arizona and California, I perform a probit regression analysis on survey data from Pew Hispanic's 2004 National Survey of Latinos on Politics and Civic Participation. The results are mixed with respect to the initial expectations. While respondents who view immigration as important and helpful are more likely to turn out than those who view immigration as important and hurtful, the results suggest that respondents who find immigration as unimportant may not be less likely to turn out. Further, there are some differences between Latino subgroups, although these differences are minor. Ultimately, the hypotheses presented in this study find moderate support.
