Athletes, especially in contact and collision sports, are at risk for anterior and, less commonly, posterior glenohumeral instability. Studies have demonstrated that both types of instability can be successfully treated with surgery, using either open or arthroscopic techniques. For athletes with anterior instability, open stabilization has a slightly lower recurrence ...

In this paper, the hydrogen (H2)-dependent discoloration of azo dye amaranth by Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 was investigated. Experiments with hydrogenase-deficient strains demonstrated that periplasmic [Ni-Fe] hydrogenase (HyaB) and periplasmic [Fe-Fe] hydrogenase (HydA) are both respiratory hydrogenases of dissimilatory azoreduction in S. oneidensis MR-1. These findings suggest that HyaB and HydA ...
