The white pine cone beetle, Conophthorus coniperda, exhibited dose and enantiospecific responses to alpha-pinene in stands of mature eastern white pine, Pinus strobus, in a seed orchard near Murphy, North Carolina, USA. (-)-alpha-Pinene significantly increased catches of cone beetles to traps baited with (+/-)-trans-pityol. (+)-alpha-Pinene did not increase catches of ...

Seismic reflection profiles reveal steeply landward-dipping splay faults in the rupture area of the magnitude (M) 8.1 Tonankai earthquake in the Nankai subduction zone. These splay faults branch upward from the plate-boundary interface (that is, the subduction zone) at a depth of approximately 10 kilometers, approximately 50 to 55 kilometers ...

Rhizobitoxine is a phytotoxin synthesized by some strains of the legume symbiont genus Bradyrhizobium and the plant pathogen Pseudomonas andropogonis. We demonstrate here a new enzymatic assay which is 100-fold more sensitive than previous assays and can detect as little as 1.0 pmol of rhizobitoxine. The assay is based on ...

Tiapride icv 400 micrograms/rabbit exhibited analgesic and synergistic effects on electroacupuncture analgesia (EAA) in rabbits. Both electroacupuncture (EA) and tiapride (icv 400 micrograms/rabbit) enhanced the beta-endorphin-like immunoreactive substance (beta-EPIS) level in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) measured by radioimmunoassay (RIA). When EA and tiapride were used in combination, a further increase of ...

The true incidence of pneumoperitoneum associated with mechanical ventilation is unknown, but current estimates range from rare to 7 percent of intubated intensive care unit patients. This syndrome should be strongly suspected when pneumoperitoneum develops in a mechanically ventilated patient with a combination of (1) peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) greater ...

Intensive forest management led to elevated losses of nitrogen from a recently harvested loblolly pine plantation in North Carolina. Measurements of nitrogen-15 retention in the field demonstrated that microbial uptake of nitrogen during the decomposition of residual organic material was the most important process retaining nitrogen. Management practices that remove ...

Three parameters were used to measure differences between Arkansas progressor and regressor lines of chickens in response to Mycoplasma gallisepticum inoculations. The responses of regressor and progressor lines to M. gallisepticum did not differ as judged by antibody response, severity of airsacculitis, and resistance of tracheal ring tissue cultures from ...

N6-(Carbamoyl)-L-lysine (CA-Lys), N6-(2-imidazolidinone-N-carbonyl)-L-lysine (INC-Lys), and N6-(2-hydroxyethylcarbamoyl)-L-lysine (HEC-Lys) were synthesized. The radioactive products obtained from enzymatic hydrolysates of polylysine that had been reacted with 1,1'ethylene-bis(1-nitrosourea) (EBNU) [carbonyl-14C] and EBNU [ethylene-14C] coincided with the authentic samples of CA-Lys, INC-Lys, and HEC-Lys on thin-layer chromatography. The main product was CA-Lys and the amounts ...
