Effects of shoot X-irradiation on water uptake by single isolated roots of intact onion plants

Description: Using a micro-potometric method, it was found that x-irradiation (400 R-18 Kr) of the shoots of the onion plant Allium cepa will produce an immediate, pronounced (200%) and reversible enhancement of the water uptake by the shielded roots. Unfiltered X-irradiation (1200 R/min., 120 KVP, 5 ma) was delivered at right angles to the shoot.

The intracellular location of carotenoid pigments in the yeast- phase of Wangiella dermatitidis

Description: Carotenoids in W. dermatitids were found to be associated with membranes of lipid globules and/or proteins dispersed in the lipids in the yeast-phase of the organism. The lipid globules increase in size and the pigment concentrations increase with age of the cell. Electron micrographs show these organelles to be surrounded by a single unit membrane. The free carotenoids are extractable with ethyl ether from pigmented fractions of osmotically ruptured protoplasts only after the sample has been treated with acetone, indicating the pigment is non-covalently bound, presumably to a protein.

Determination of the complete nucleotide sequence of the xylZ region of the Pseudomonas putida TOL plasmid pDK1, encoding a subunit of the toluate oxidase complex

Description: A 1.57 kb XhoI restriction fragment derived from the TOL plasmid pDKI was subcloned into the E. Coli plasmid pUC19. The complete nucleotide sequence of this XhoI fragment was determined using both the chemical cleavage and chain termination DNA sequencing methods.

Colonial dissociation in Neisseria gonorrhoeae

Description: The studies reported herein indicate that, under the conditions commonly employed for cultivating Neisseria gonorrhoeae, colonial type T1 and T2 cultures of the organism dissociate to type T3 and T4 forms, and that this occurs both among populations of the organism grown in liquid media as well as in individual, well-isolated colonies grown on solid media.

Genetic organization and mRNA expression of enolase genes of Candida albicans

Description: The glycolytic enzyme enolase is an abundant, immunodominant antigen of the fungal pathogen Candida albicans. A C. albicans enolase cDNA was used to study the genetic organization and expression of enolase genes. Experimental results were consistent with a model predicting four enolase genes per diploid genome. Enolase steady state mRNA levels increased during logarithmic growth, but were unaffected by pH, growth form or carbon source.

Ultrastructure of Azotobacter vinelandii

Description: The purpose of this research was to reveal the morphological and cytological characteristics of Azotobacter vinelandii cells cultured in dialyzed soil medium. Culture samples taken at two, four, eight, sixteen and thirty-two days were prepared and examined with the electron microscope. Comparisons of the morphology of Azotobacter vinelandii grown in dialyzed soil medium with those grown in Burk's nitrogen-free, chemically-defined medium were done.

Ultrastructural characteristics of cultured embryonic mouse olfactory epithelial and bulb cells

Description: This laboratory is involved in physiological and histochemical studies of olfactory tissue grown in cell culture in an attempt to create an in vitro model of the olfactory system. The present study is an in-depth ultrastructural study of the morphology of cultured olfactory cells to determine the extent of similarities and differences between cultured tissues and the intact olfactory system in vivo.

An art curriculum guide for the junior high Catholic school system of the Dallas Diocese

Description: This study is about the development of a curriculum guide which projects flexibility, continuity, sequential framework, and to a certain extent, uniformity, around which each teacher may build an art program that will best meet the students' needs. Areas pertinent to developing the curriculum guide are presented in light of literature in this field. The guide may be used to facilitate the teaching of art in recognizing and understanding artistic development that is essential in bringing to fruition the inherent individual ability of all the Junior High Catholic School students.
