7 The new Mormon historyMarshall, Richard StephenProfessor Klaus J. Hansen has observed that "Mormonism in 1974 differs fundamentally from the Mormonism of 1890 even though no theoretical change in doctrine may have occurred."1 This fundamental difference is obvious to any person who has studied the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-...History
8 The structural basis for molecular recognition of the capsid protein of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 by human cyclophilin A.Vajdos, Felix Francis.The human protein, Cyclophilin A, is a member of a family of enzymes, known as peptidyl-prolyl isomerases, which catalyze cis-trans isomerization of proline peptide bonds. Because proline isomerization is a rate limiting step in the refolding of some proteins, Cyclophilin A has been widely believed ...Biochemistry
9 Retroviral capsid assembly.Ganser, Barbie Kay.During retroviral maturation, the viral CA protein oligomerizes to form a closed capsid that surrounds the viral genome. Interestingly, mature capsid morphologies vary dramatically across the different genera of retroviridae. Specifically, capsids can be conical, spherical, or cylindrical. Despite t...Biochemistry
10 A computer-based model for providing empiric antibiotic therapy in a hospital.Warner, Homer R.A new model for computer-based medical decision making, called QID for Quick Infectious Disease, is described. It is based on the principles of decision analysis, using probabilities and utilities. In this study, QID was applied to the problem of recognition and empiric treatment of hospital-acquire...Biomedical Informatics
11 Validity of carbon tetrachloride-induced liver damage and nephrectomy as biological procedures for determining fate and excretion of anticonvulsant drugs.Schiffman, Donald OwenCarbon tetrachloride-induced liver damage and nephrectomy are commonly used to determine the fate and excretion of anticonvulsant drugs. It is generally assumed that such alterations do not otherwise affect the response of the central nervous system to such drugs or to the tests employed to measure ...Pharmacology & Toxicology
12 Aspects of the ingestive and cytopeptic action of phagocytes.Gyi, Ko Ko.1. Total body x-irradiation of mice in doses of 300, 400, or 500 r does not affect the phagocytosis by reticuloendothelial cells of spleen of intravenously injected ThO2 when determined 2 day following x-irradiation. Similar studies carried out on the seventh post-irradiation day revealed (1) that ...Pathology
13 A Computerized data base resource for dermatoglyphics research.Anderson, Milton Winfield.The study of the ridged skin on the plantar and palmar surfaces of man is termed "dermatoglyphics" and has been the subject of various scientific investigations particularly in medicine and human genetics. Since the dermal configurations are completely determined by the fourth moth of gestation and...Biomedical Informatics
14 The Sulfur distributin of papain and related studies.Glazer, Alexander Namiot.In the General Introduction to this Thesis, it was pointed out that the work of previous investigators posed two major problems. The first of these is that of the two "missing" sulfur atoms, and the second, that of the chemical nature of the "active site" of papain. The results of the present inve...Biochemistry
15 The Design, development, implementation, and evaluation of a computerized anesthesia charting system.Wang, XiaodongA Computerized Anesthesia Charting System (CACS) was developed and implemented as an addition to the HELP hospital information system at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Instead of using the traditional manually recorded anesthesia record, the anesthesiologists charted using a computer terminal...Biomedical Informatics
16 Expanding the spectrum of autoimmunity induced with myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein.Peterson, Lisa K.Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is an autoimmune model of MS, induced by sensitization with myelin proteins of their encephalitogenic peptides. Sensitization with amino acids 92-106 of m...Pathology
17 Hydrophilic-hydrophobic microphase-separated block copolymers: synthesis, characerization and blood compatibility.Grainger, David William.Two types of amphiphilic block copolymers--one containing repeating blocks of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) and polystyrene (PS) and another containing poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS), PEO, and heparin (Hep)--were synthesized to examine the effects of hydrophilic-hydrophobic balance on blood compatibilit...Pharmaceutics & Pharmaceutical Chemistry
18 Relationship of the spleen to the cellular elements of the blood, and subsequent finding of a leukopenic substance in inflammatory tissue.Kemp, Ileen1. The effects of splenectomy on the cellular elements of the circulating blood in the male albino rat have been investigated. Only a quantitative change in the leukocytes was observed. This change was in the form of a marked leukocytosis. The leukocytosis reached a peak 8 to 10 days after splene...Pathology
19 The pharmacology of anticonvulsant drug combinations.Weaver, Lawrence Clayton.This study represents the initiation of a systematic laboratory investigation designed to elucidate the type of interaction of anticonvulsant drugs and to disclose any unusual potentiation or antagonism by obtaining quantitative data on the potency and toxicity of various anticonvulsant drug combina...Pharmacology & Toxicology
20 Engineering factors relating to the production of smokeless fuel, oil and gas from Rocky Mountain coals, by low temperature carbonizationCarter, George W.One-hundred and forty-eight human souls in the small town of Winter Quarters near Omaha, set out on April 7, 1847 to find a new place under the sun where there would be no religious persecution. On July 24th, one-hundred and nine days after the arduous trek was begun, this hardy band of Mormon pione...Mechanical Engineering
21 Localization and characterization of dopamine D-1 receptors in the central nervous system.Dawson, Ted Murray.Dopamine, a central nervous system neurotransmitter, is considered to be intimately involved in a variety of functions including both behavior and movement. This catecholamine mediates its effects via at least two dopamine receptor populations designated dopamine type one (D-1) and dopamine type two...Pharmacology & Toxicology
22 Specificity of mycobacterial sensitins.Dietz, Thomas Morgan.The influence of various inoculation routes on the development and specificity of mycobacterial hypersensitivity reactions was investigated. The results indicated that the rate of development of skin test reactions was not determined by the inoculation route. Skin test reactions were seen within t...Pathology
23 Body temperatures in older adults.Brown, Nancy NealeThe focus of this research was to investigate and define a range of body temperature values of an older adult population. Recent awareness of the increased incidence of hypothermia in the elderly posed the question of whether the body temperatures of older adults are different from the standard val...Nursing
24 The Influence of lower extremity hypothermia on the active phase of labor.Sutherland, Kathryn Claire.An experimental study was conducted to examine the incidence of cold feet during labor, and to ascertain if a nursing intervention, applying socks, would be beneficial to parturient patients. Thirty subjects were alternately assigned to the control or experimental group. Demographic and descriptiv...Nursing
25 The identification and characterization of B56, a new family of protein phosphatase 2A regulatory subunits.McCright, Brenton K.Protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) is a major intracellular serine/threonine phosphatase that has been implicated in the regulation of the cell cycle, DNA replication, cell metabolism, and signal transduction. PP2A exists as a heterotrimeric complex whose regulatory subunits determine the substrate spec...Oncological Sciences
