    Notes: Summary The ultrastructure of the flagellar apparatus of the marine quadriflagellate green algaTetraselmis subcordiformis is described in detail. Special consideration is given to the functional significance of the contractile rhizoplast and also to a complex structure which anchors the flagellar apparatus to the cell membrane and theca. The flagellar apparatus lies at the base of a deep apical depression. Four basal bodies lie in a zigzag row with their long axes nearly parallel. Outer adjacent pairs of basal bodies are structurally linked by a Z-shaped, ribbon-like structure. A striated fiber (transfiber) connects each outer basal body with the inner basal body of the opposite, mirror image pair. A complex system of four laminated oval discs (rhizanchora), microtubule rootlets and fibrous material anchor the flagellar apparatus and rhizoplasts to the plasma membrane and theca. A 4-2-4-2 arrangement of microtubule rootlets is present. Rhizoplasts, which are contractile organelles, branch into five distinct arms and associate with the near outer basal body and each of the four rhizanchora. Rhizoplast contraction is thought to be linked to flagellar activity and may act to alter the direction of motion of the cell.

    Notes: The intrinsic viscosity of cellulose xanthate solutions was studied as a function of the electrolyte content of the solvent, and found to decrease sharply with increase in electrolyte concentration. All electrolytes tested except sodium and lithium hydroxides produced essentially the same reduction in intrinsic viscosity for solutions of equivalent ionic strenghts, indicating that the effect was largely one of interaction between the solvent ions and the charged xanthate groups. Hydroxides induced a greater viscosity reduction. The reason for this was not fully resolved; however, indications were obtained that the hydroxides, in addition to behaving as electrolytes toward the charged xanthate groups, also interact with the hydroxyl groups on the parent cellulose chain.Light scattering measurements, as well as data on the variation of the intrinsic viscosity with molecular weight in various solvents, showed that the change in intrinsic viscosity with electrolyte concentration could be accounted for by a change in configuration, or degree of coiling of the molecule. Calculations indicated that in pure water cellulose xanthate should approach a rigid rod configuration whereas in 6% caustic coiling occurs and the molecule resembles more a random configuration.

    Notes: Auger sputter profiles of thin AI films on InP are presented and shown to be susceptible to an unusual type of ion beam induced interfacial distortion. It is found that recoil implantation and atomic mixing produce a differential broadening of the In and P at the interface which can seriously affect the integrity of the Auger profile. Energy shifts in the AI Auger peak indicate that this distortion is associated with AIP formation to a depth dictated by the ion beam energy and species. Experimental requirements for the reduction of interfacial distortion are discussed. We also consider the influence of the ion beam on the topography and morphology of the InP surface in relation to interfacial distortion.

    Notes: Proton magnetic resonance has been used to study water in Douglas fir and western red cedar. The free induction decay, when combined with a knowledge of chemical composition of the wood, gives an accurate measure of the absolute moisture content. Spin-lattice relaxation was found to be significantly different for the two species. In sapwood, three distinct spin - spin relaxation times, T2, were measured and assigned, with the help of anatomical data, to water in and on the cell wall, water in the ray and latewood tracheid lumens, and water in the earlywood tracheid lumens. This T2 behavior was explained by a model in which free water in a void exchanges with a small fraction of bound water on the lumen surface. The three T2's were almost independent of moisture content, suggesting physically separate compartments. The behavior of the three water components during drying was studied. The fiber saturation point could be determined from a single T2 measurement on a green sapwood sample. Magnetic resonance imaging of logs was investigated.

    Notes: Medical grade silicone rubber manufactured by Dow Corning Corporation was implanted subcutaneously in beagle dogs. At specified time intervals, the implants were removed at which time physical properties and weight changes were determined. A change in the physical properties was observed after six months implantation. Tensile strength decreased 7%, elongation 10% and the modulus at 200% extension increased 8%. After two years implantation, tensile strength had decreased 8%, elongation 15%, and 200% modulus increased 16%. After two weeks implantation, a 0.4% weight gain was seen, and after four weeks implantation the samples had gained 0.7%. However, after four weeks the weight gains stabilized and from four weeks to two years, they never exceeded 0.91%. The increase was due mainly to lipid absorption. No phospholipid or protein was detected. A chloroform/methanol extraction of the samples before implantation demonstrated 1.7% extractable silicone polymer. Samples not extracted before implantation, but extracted after implantation also demonstrated 1.7% extractable silicone polymer. This data suggests extractable silicone polymer does not leach from the medical grade silicone rubber during implantation.The data also suggests that the rubber is not being degraded to extractable silicone polymers during implantation. There were no significant differences in percent lipid up-take or the lipid profiles between samples which had extractable silicone polymer extracted before implantation and/or those which were not extracted before implantation.It should be pointed out that the slight changes in physical properties measured in this study should not be great enough to alter the performance of the rubber in the subcutaneous environment.

    Description: Severe malaria is caused by the apicomplexan parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Despite decades of research, the distinct biology of these parasites has made it challenging to establish high-throughput genetic approaches to identify and prioritize therapeutic targets. Using transposon mutagenesis of P. falciparum in an approach that exploited its AT-rich genome, we generated more than 38,000 mutants, saturating the genome and defining mutability and fitness costs for over 87% of genes. Of 5399 genes, our study defined 2680 genes as essential for optimal growth of asexual blood stages in vitro. These essential genes are associated with drug resistance, represent leading vaccine candidates, and include approximately 1000 Plasmodium -conserved genes of unknown function. We validated this approach by testing proteasome pathways for individual mutants associated with artemisinin sensitivity.
