Tb33: Utilization Of Amino Acids From Proteins: Manual Of Procedures, Hermon Dehaas, Ellen H. Morse

Technical Bulletins

To meet the protein needs of the newly developing countries and the increasing world population, plant proteins and protein mixtures will be required in larger and larger amounts. The proteins studied in this investigation included an animal and a vegetable protein that are important agricultural products of the United States. While general information about the nutritive quality of these proteins is available, this regional study was designed to contribute to an understanding of the reasons for the quality differences and to provide a basis for formulating protein mixtures of high quality using various protein sources.

Some Observations On Maccoa Duck Behaviour, Paul A. Johnsgard Dec 1968

Some Observations On Maccoa Duck Behaviour, Paul A. Johnsgard

Paul Johnsgard Collection

The recent comprehensive review of Maccoa Duck Oxyura maccoa biology by Clark (1964) has provlded the first detailed summary of the species' reproductive behaviour patterns and other aspects of breeding in this little-studied stiff-tail. It has been evident that the evolutionary relationships of the Maccoa Duck to the other southern hemisphere stiff-tails and the northern species of Oxyura are still uncertain at best, as evidenced by the varied taxonomic treatment that the Maccoa has received from Delacour and Mayr (1945), who regarded it as a race of O. australis, from Boetticher (1952), who consldered it as a race of O ...


Distribution Of The Porcupine, Erethizon Dorsatum, In Mexico, J. Knox Jones Jr., Hugh H. Genoways Dec 1968

Distribution Of The Porcupine, Erethizon Dorsatum, In Mexico, J. Knox Jones Jr., Hugh H. Genoways

Mammalogy Papers: University of Nebraska State Museum

The first Recent record of the porcupine, Erethizon dorsatum, from Mexico comprised fragmentary remains associated with human occupancy from a cave east of Cuatro Cienegas, Coahuila (Gilmore, 1947 : 158-159). Later, Benson (1953 : 511-512) reported two specimens from western Sonora from < the lower flood plain of the Rio Sonora, close to the Gulf of California >> (one from 6 mi. N Puerto Kino and the other from Rancho Santa Ana, about 45 mi. W Hermosillo), and Dickerman (1962 : 108) recorded the species from Hda. Las Margaritas in northern Coahuila. No additional reports of Recent porcupines from Mexico have come to our attention, and four specimens of Erethizon dorsatum couesi Mearns, 1897, in the Museum of Natural ...

Airplane-Seeded Wheat – Aid To Double Cropping, John Watts, S. H. Phillips Dec 1968

Airplane-Seeded Wheat – Aid To Double Cropping, John Watts, S. H. Phillips

Agronomy Notes

Airplane-seeding of wheat has been increasing since its start in 1965 in Fulton County, Kentucky. Over 20,000 acres were seeded in the fall of 1968, with the acreage concentrated in the Purchase and Bowling Green areas.

Farmers report these advantages for aerial seedings: (1) early establishment of small grain; (2) similar seeding cost as compared to drilling; (3) labor use in normal seeding operations diverted to other farm operations.


A Study Of The Relationship Between The Sugar Content Of Enzyme Converted Starch And Pick Values Of A Coated Sheet, David A. Mrochek Dec 1968

A Study Of The Relationship Between The Sugar Content Of Enzyme Converted Starch And Pick Values Of A Coated Sheet, David A. Mrochek

Paper Engineering Senior Theses

The purpose of this experiment was to convert starch by the use of enzyme. The conversion was carried out in a way to produce variations in the reducing sugar contents of the cooked starch. These starches were then applied as the adhesive in a coating mixture. Draw downs were made using the variety of coatings and then the sheets were tested for surface strength. The IGT Pick Tested was used. It was hoped that a definite relationship between sugar contents and pick values could be obtained. This, however, was not the case and the experiment would have to be considered ...

Serum Immunoglobulins In The Differential Diagnosis Between Intrahepatic Viral Jaundice And Extrahepatic Obstructive Jaundice, Gerald A. Logrippo, Thomas A. Fox, Melvin A. Block

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Serum immunoglobulin levels are reported in 75 patients with jaundice: 32 with jaundice due to virus hepatitis and 43 with jaundice due to obstruction. The degrees and variations of serum immunoglobulins (Ig), (IgM, IgG and IgA) in virus hepatitis (IH and SH) with jaundice are compared with those found in obstructive jaundice. In 32 of the patients with jaundice from virus hepatitis, serum IgM (100%) and IgG (75%) were elevated above 2 Standard Deviations from the mean values. Neither IgM nor IgG levels were elevated above 2 Standard Deviations from the mean values in 33 of 43 patients (76.7 ...

Tetracycline-Based Measurements Of The Bone Dynamics In The Rib Of A Girl With Hyperphosphatasia, S. Jett, H. M. Frost Dec 1968

Tetracycline-Based Measurements Of The Bone Dynamics In The Rib Of A Girl With Hyperphosphatasia, S. Jett, H. M. Frost

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Tetracycline-based quantitative histological analysis was made of a rib biopsy taken from a girl afflicted with hyperphosphatasia. The study revealed essentially normal bone dynamics on trabeculae, but greatly increased turnover in the compacta, which was largely composed of woven bone. Since both bone resorption and lamellar bone formation could be unequivocally demonstrated on periosteal, Haversian, and cortical-endosteal surfaces, it is suggested that the direct cause of the cell behavioral abnormality responsible for this disease may arise locally within the bone, but external to the bone cells. Because of its familial nature, however, the ultimate cause probably represents an inborn intracellular ...


Ecological Determination Of The Hour Of Nest Opening By An Ant, A. Dwight Smith Dec 1968

Ecological Determination Of The Hour Of Nest Opening By An Ant, A. Dwight Smith

Loma Linda University Electronic Theses, Dissertations & Projects

The timing of daily opening of the nest entrance by the red harvester ant Popnomyrmex californicus was studied during all four seasons. Multiple regression analysis of several , environmental variables shows that the variation from day to day in mean opening time can be attributed to temperature differences, with the time that a given temperature was reached being the most important single variable for the autumn days studied. An equation incorporating this and the minimum temperature was sufficient to specify the mean opening time to within a few minutes. For the spring days, it was necessary to combine sunrise time with ...


Simple Methods For Detection Of Bacteriuria In The Physician's Office, E. G. Heinze Jr., A. Hodari, T. Connolly, D. Jones, F. Cox, E. L. Quinn Dec 1968

Simple Methods For Detection Of Bacteriuria In The Physician's Office, E. G. Heinze Jr., A. Hodari, T. Connolly, D. Jones, F. Cox, E. L. Quinn

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Two simplified quantitative urine culture techniques, suitable for use in the physician's office, were shown to be reliable and practical. The miniature culture method (Testuria) and flood-plate technique gave comparable quantitative results, and the latter also yielded prompt information of organism specificity which was helpful in judging the significance of the culture findings.


Management Of Massive Hemoptysis, Eduardo Arciniegas, Conrad R. Lam Dec 1968

Management Of Massive Hemoptysis, Eduardo Arciniegas, Conrad R. Lam

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Massive hemoptysis demands immediate investigation and treatment. Bronchoscopy done while the bleeding is active is essential to accurate localization of the site of origin and the cause of hemorrhage. Emergency pulmonary resection should be carried out if death is to be prevented by suffocation or exsanguination. Illustrative cases are presented.


Hospital Involvement In Regional Medical Programs, Robert M. O'Bryan Dec 1968

Hospital Involvement In Regional Medical Programs, Robert M. O'Bryan

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

The purpose of Regional Medical Programs is to improve the care of patients with heart disease. cancer, stroke or related diseases. Rather than subsidizing the cost of patient care, the program encourages the medical profession and medical institutions to establish voluntary, cooperative arrangements that will result in making the latest advances in these diseases available to patients. Programs are planned and implemented at local (Regional) levels through broad-based decision-making processes. This paper reviews five Regional Medical Programs with emphasis on various approaches hospitals are using to implement the program, and lists six criteria applicable to developing operational activities.


Enzyme Histochemistry Of The Human Carotid Body, Gerald Fine, Pablo Enriquez, Azorides R. Morales Dec 1968

Enzyme Histochemistry Of The Human Carotid Body, Gerald Fine, Pablo Enriquez, Azorides R. Morales

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Histochemical enzymatic survey of 25 "normal" human carotid bodies removed at autopsy from patients three days to 83 years of age revealed a variety of oxidative and hydrolytic enzymes in the lobular and interlobular cells. The intensity of the reactions was greater in the lobular cells. Acid phosphatase was the only enzyme that was limited to the cells comprising the lobules.
