SUMMARY A model is presented for the estimation of genetic effects from the diallel cross and related populations of a fixed set of random-mating varieties with arbitrary gene frequencies at all loci assuming diploid inheritance, two alleles per locus...

Glucose, sorbitol, fructose, and inositol are present in peripheral nerve and spinal cord. Marked elevation of these substances occurs in these tissues in mildly diabetic animals. These alterations provide biochemical mechanisms which could be significant...

This report presents recently developed formulas for use in the measurement of two ordering effects found in sequences of freely recalled items. These effects are respectively labelled clustering and intertrial repetition. Clustering, as defined by Bousfield...

1. 1. A procedure is described for the assay of maltase, isomaltase, sucrase, lactase, cellobiase, and trehalase activity in homogenates of human small-intestinal mucosa. The disaccharide hydrolysis and the coupled enzyme reactions yielding a colored...

The relation between the area of contact and the constriction resistance which holds for a single circular contact spot is widely used in electric contact theory, although the normal mode of contact is by a large number of microcontacts. A method of finding...

A detailed experimental investigation of the gabbro-eclogite transformation in several basalts has been carried out. More than 200 runs at temperatures between 900 and 1,250°C and pressures up to 30 kbar were made, and the resultant phase assemblages...

The experiment tests the notion that naturally occurring states of physiological arousal are manipulable in the same way that drug-induced arousal states have proven to be. The state of arousal studied is that produced by pain from electric shock. All...

SummaryOptic fibers of retinal origin terminate in the lateral geniculate body exclusively in the so called glomerular synapses. They can be recognized on the basis of their unusually large irregular mitochondria having very few cristae. In the cat the...

A set of conditions are described which determine whether or not two successive portions of a given program can be performed in parallel and still produce the same results. The conditions are general and can be applied to sections of the program of arbitrary...

As a step beyond the Hartree—Fock technique in the search for better energies,wavefunctions, and the general description of molecular formation and dissociation, a configuration‐mixing method of the following nature is developed and illustrated for...

In some communication problems, it is a good assumption that the channel consists of an additive white Gaussian noise forward link and an essentially noiseless feedback link. In this paper, we study channels where no bandwidth constraint is placed on...

By the technique of artificial RNA-DNA hybridization the fraction of Xenopus laevis wild type DNA complementary to homologous 28-S and 18-S ribosomal RNA is found to be **0**.07 % and **0**.04 % respectively. The ribosomal RNA-DNA...

Under appropriate conditions, data merely about the ordering of objects—or of the separations between objects—is sometimes sufficient to fix the positions of those objects on an essentially numerical scale. This paper uses both mathematical and...

Meteoritic, solar and terrestrial rare-earth distributions.

The effect of cations on insulin release was studied in the isolated pancreas of the rat perfused with a synthetic perfusate consisting of albumin and buffer. The omission of calcium and magnesium ion completely inhibited insulin release stimulated by...

A virus, inactivated by ultraviolet light, was used to fuse together cells from different species of vertebrate, and the resulting heterokaryons were examined by autoradiographic and cytological techniques. Heterokaryons could be made with both differentiated...

“An even greater disappointment to all interested in synaptic physiology has been the failure tu elucidate the nature of any chemical trasmitter in the mammalian nervous system other then acetylcholine. It is a sorry situation that despite considerable...

The low-lying even-parity spectrum of 16O and 17O is described by mixing the usual states in the spherical shell model with deformed states obtained by exciting particles out of a deformed core.

Predators that spend a large proportion of their food collecting budget on the catching and killing of prey after the prey have once been discovered are shown to specialize on prey of a certain size. Such specialist predators frequently coexist in hunting...

Four rules are proposed to explain the photoluminescent efficiency of Eu3+‐activated oxides: (a) uv absorbing groups in the host lattice should be nearest neighbors in the crystal structure to have sufficient wavefunction overlap; (b) the emission spectrum...

Refinement of the crystal structure of In2O3 at two wavelengths

The viscoelastic properties of some polyester-urethanes are compared with the properties of other polymers. The behavior observed is anomalous in that these polyurethanes exhibit an unusually high value of modulus well above their Tg, unaccounted for...

Our object is to present a broad review of this subject as a branch of hydrodynamics, referring both to the well known `implosion' mechanism first analysed by Lord Rayleigh and, more particularly, to the recently perceived possibility that effects of...
