226 Low-field relaxation and the study of ultraslow atomic motions by magnetic resonanceConventional resonance enables one to study motion of atoms by measurement of line width when the mean time r between jumps is less than 1/Aco, where Aa> is the rigid lattice line width, or by measurement of the spin-lattice relaxation time, Ti, when r ^ l / coo , where coo is the Larmor frequency. ...Ultraslow atomic motion; Magnetic resonance1964
227 Coping with methuselah the impact of molecular biology on medicine and societyThe prospect of extra-long life spawns a bloom of ethical issues, among them how to achieve intergenerational equity; how to balance health care entitlements with rising costs for the elderly; how to divide years of life between work and retirement; how to assign the responsibilities of young family...2004
228 Improvements to the finite-difference time-domain method for calculating the radar cross section of a perfectly conducing targetThe finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method has been used extensively to calculate scattering and absorption from both dielectric objects and perfectly conducting objects.

229 Genetic variation at the MCIR Locus and the time since loss of human body hairThe melanocortin I receptor (MCIR) locus makes a protein that affects the color of skin and hair. At this locus, amino-acid differences are entirely absent among African humans, abundant among non-Africans (especially Europeans), and abundant in chimpanzee/human comparisons (Rana et al. 1999, Hardin...Nonsynonymous; Chimpanzee; Constraint2004

At the...Computers; Music1971
236 Real time PCR assay for the detection of CMV using eclipse hybridization probesWe developed a qualitative real time PCR assay to detect CMV in patient samples, using a novel hybridization probe termed the Eclipse probe (Epoch Biosciences). These are single probes with a fluorescent molecule attached to the 3' end and a dark quencher on the 5' end. Also conjugated to the 5' end...Tissues Analysis; Elegans2004-08-11
237 Multidimensional transfer functions for interactive volume renderingAbstract-Most direct volume renderings produced today employ one-dimensional transfer functions which assign color and opacity to the volume based solely on the single scalar quantity which comprises the data set. Though they have not received widespread attention, multidimensional transfer function...2002-07
238 Caenorhabditis elegans rab-3 mutant synapses exhibit impaired function and are partially depleted of vesiclesRab molecules regulate vesicular trafficking in many different exocytic and endocytic transport pathways in eukaryotic cells. In neurons, rab3 has been proposed to play a crucial role in regulating synaptic vesicle release. To elucidate the role of rab3 in synaptic transmission, we isolated and cha...1997
239 Analytical characteristics of ICAT-LC-MS/MS for quantitative proteomics studiesRecent studies have employed isotope-coded affinity tags (ICAT) in concert with tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) to assess differential expression of proteins on a proteomic scale and perform unbiased quantitative comparisons between samples from different physiological or disease states. We sought ...isotope-coded affinity tags; ICAT; mass spectrometry; MS/MS; proteomic scale; FL2005-06-03
240 Long-term stimulation and recording with a penetrating microelectrode array in cat sciatic nerveWe studied the consequences of long-term implantation of a penetrating microelectrode array in peripheral nerve over the time course of 4-6 mo. Electrode arrays without lead wires were implanted to test the ability of different containment systems to protect the array and nerve during contractions o...Cats; Microelectrodes; Prosthesis Implantation; Sciatic Nerve2004
241 Too many? Too few. New study reveals current trends in U. S. neurosurgical workforceRemarkable changes in the neurosurgical specialty have taken place in the past 15 years. While advances in basic science have occurred and new technologies and therapies have proliferated, other, less propitious factors-such as the promises (some might say false promises) and hopes of managed care-h...2003-01-01
242 Neighborhood environment and health in old age: what role do individual characteristics play in this link?This research investigates the relationship among objectively assessed neighborhood SES, subjective perceptions of neighborhood environment, and self-rated physical health among older persons.
