Characterization Of Canine Photoreceptor Phosducin Cdna And Identification Of A Sequence Variant In Dogs With Photoreceptor Dysplasia, Qi Zhang, Gregory M. Acland, Charles J. Parhsall, Jeanette Haskell, Kunal Ray, Gustavo D. Aguirre

Gustavo D. Aguirre, VMD, PhD

Photoreceptor dysplasia (pd) is an autosomal recessive disease of miniature schnauzer dogs causing retinal degeneration. The disease is a homologue of retinitis pigmentosa, a group of genetically heterogeneous diseases, causing blindness in humans. A subtraction library was prepared from retinas of pd affected and age-matched normal control dogs to isolate de novo candidate genes for further examination. From the subtraction library, cDNA for phosducin (PDC), a member of the phototransduction pathway, was isolated as a transcript expressed at a higher level in the affected retina. First, the normal canine PDC cDNA was characterized to evaluate the PDC gene in the ...

Dimensions Coaching Performance: Determining The Validity And Reliability Of The State University Of New York College At Brockport Student Athlete Assessment Form (Saaf), Gregory W. Lund

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Master’s Theses

Literature pertaining to the evaluation of coaches concurs that the process of evaluating coaches should be formalized and specific (Leland, 1988; Levy, 1989; Stier, 1983; MacLean & Chelladurai, 1995). SUNY Brockport has employed the Student Athlete Assessment Form (hereafter referred to as the SAAF), to evaluate the effectiveness of its coaches at the end of each athletic season. Despite being used in various forms for 14 years as a significant data source for the overall evaluation of coaches, the validity and reliability of the SAAF are unknown. This study was conducted to determine the validity and reliability of the SAAF. Between ...

The Relationship Between Leadership/Followership In Staff Nurses And Employment Setting, Elaine S. Vandoren Apr 1998

The Relationship Between Leadership/Followership In Staff Nurses And Employment Setting, Elaine S. Vandoren

Dissertations

This study tested the hypothesis that staff nurses in hospitals used different leadership and followership behaviors than staff nurses in home care settings. Leadership behaviors were measured using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (Bass, 1995); followership was measured using Kelley’s Followership Style Questionnaire (1992). Three hospital and home care agencies belonging to a private nonprofit corporation in the Midwest provided data. A total of 136 surveys were used in data analysis; 57% of distributed surveys were returned.

Differences between the hospital and home care staff nurses were not found. Self-perception, difficulty in applying clinical behaviors to the MLQ, unknown aspects ...

Taurine Status In Cats Is Not Maintained By Dietary Cysteinesulfinic Acid, S Edgar, Claudia Kirk, Q Rogers, J Morris Mar 1998

Taurine Status In Cats Is Not Maintained By Dietary Cysteinesulfinic Acid, S Edgar, Claudia Kirk, Q Rogers, J Morris

Claudia A Kirk

Endogenous synthesis of taurine by cats is limited. Putative precursors of taurine, cysteinesulfinic acid and cysteic acid, were fed to cats to determine whether they were utilized. Groups of five cats were depleted of taurine by a resin (Colestipol(R)) diet, then given 6 dietary treatments containing (g/kg diet): 0.0, 0.4, or 0.8 taurine; or 0.98 or 1.96 cysteinesulfinic acid, or 0.4 taurine + 1.0 cysteic acid for 12 wk. Plasma and whole blood taurine concentrations and body weights were measured weekly. Concentration of taurine in semitendinosus muscle was measured initially, after 2 ...

Cherri And Lisa Go To India, Cherri Trusheim, Lisa Reising

Iowa State University Veterinarian

We spent 30 difficult days in the beautiful but impoverished country of India. Prior to the trip we made a small attempt to acquaint ourselves with the Indian culture and prepare for the shock of visiting a third-world country. Neither of us had traveled overseas before. We came to the conclusion (after the first day) that this was something that had to be experienced to comprehend, and reading a few books, watching documentaries on the Discovery Channel, or listening to others speak of their experiences while visiting the country did not do the job. Knowing a second language is always ...

Causerie, Elizabeth L. Carney

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Greetings from the office of the ISU Veterinarian! As I sit and reflect on my time as editor of this unique publication, I am struck by how fast time seems to have gone since I took on this task a volume ago. At that time, I felt certain I was up to the job if only I could figure out exactly what I was supposed to do when! Three issues later, I have a clearer idea of what it takes to make this journal a reality, and perhaps I would be less apt to agree to the job had I ...

How The East Met The West, Leah Braas Jan 1998

How The East Met The West, Leah Braas

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Recently, in August to be exact, I moved away from everything that I knew and loved and came to Iowa. At first I didn't really understand the transition that would take place in the two-day, 1100 mile trek across the United States. After all, I wasn't leaving the country, just moving to Iowa. Just moving to Iowa. What a statement, I left the land of concrete highways and moved to the land of large, silver belt buckles, and "just moving to Iowa" began to have a whole new meaning.

Dialogue: A Qualitative Study Of A Faculty Development Intervention To Assist Faculty In Exploring The Practitioner Assumptions That Impact Their Role In Higher Education And Medical Education, Donna M. Qualters

Educational Studies Dissertations

The Dialogue study is concerned with understanding how Dialogue could be applied to faculty development. Dialogue is a structured form of group interaction developed as an organizational behavior tool (Isaacs, 1993) which creates space for practitioner assumptions to be probed and insight into practice be achieved. It provides an intervention for faculty at the pre-contemplative stage of change (Prochaska, 1986), who are not motivated to modify their practice. The study focused on self-selected multi-discipline faculty from a four year institution and a public medical school. Participants ranged in experience from one to thirty five years of practice. This study was ...

College Obtains Confocal Microscope, Julie Schneider Jan 1998

College Obtains Confocal Microscope, Julie Schneider

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Iowa State University recently acquired a Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope. The microscope is located at 1082 Veterinary Medicine in the Image Analysis facility. Confocal microscopy is an improvement over conventional light and fluorescence microscopy in that a finely focused laser beam that rapidly scans the specimen at a single depth illuminates the specimen. Only a thin plane is illuminated within the object, and objects outside of the plane have little effect on the quality of the image. The result is a crisp, blur-free image. Images from optical sections taken at different depths can be stored in a computer and used ...

Making Your Practice And Facility More User-Friendly For Those With Disabilities, Rebecca Clow, Loren Will Jan 1998

Making Your Practice And Facility More User-Friendly For Those With Disabilities, Rebecca Clow, Loren Will

Iowa State University Veterinarian

As veterinarians, our duties extend beyond practicing medicine. We must realize that the veterinary profession requires excellent client communication and we must alter our way of practice to meet client needs. We must do more than compromise, empathize, and explain terms on a client's level. It is critical that we take into consideration the special needs of disabled clients. This paper will discuss some of the legal and ethical aspects of communicating with disabled clients while making your practice more user-friendly to those with these special needs. Dog guides and their care will also be discussed briefly.
