The "refereed" or "peer review" status of a journal comes from the Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory (http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com/), as supplied by the publisher. The term refers to the system of critical evaluation of manuscripts/articles by professional colleagues or peers. The content of refereed publications is sanctioned, vetted, or otherwise approved by a peer-review or editorial board. The peer-review and evaluation system is utilized to protect, maintain, and raise the quality of scholarly material published in serials. Publications subject to the referee process are assumed, then, to contain higher quality content than those that are not.

Viremia and serum antibodies in Macacus rhesus monkey after inapparent infection with European tick-borne encephalitis virus

Authors: Slonim, D; Závadová, H (1977) Journal of Hygiene, Epidemiology, Microbiology and Immunology 21:460-464. HERO ID: 1248055

Inapparent infection was called forth in M. rhesus monkeys by means of subcutaneous inoculation of ETBE virus. 2. Viremia was found in 18 (86 per cent) of 21 monkeys. In all the 18 monkeys, specific virus-neutralizing antibodies were found; in 17 of them complement-fixing antibodies developed in addition. 3. Neutralizing antibodies (N greater than or equal to 1.7 log10) were first recorded on 10th day with a peak on 32nd day, retaining, after a small decrease, a relatively high level in all reacting animals. 4. Complement-fixing antibodies were first found on 18th day, showing a peak on 22nd day whereafter they dropped considerably or even disappeared so that on 150th day they were present in a low titre in only 35 per cent of the originally reacting monkeys. 5. The findings were compared with the situation in naturally infected humans and in hamsters infected inapparently (experimentally) with ETBE virus.

The effect of ligand size and stereochemistry on the reactivity of the alpha and beta chains within hemoglobin

Authors: Olson, JS; Binger, C (1976) Biochimica et Biophysica Acta 434:428-439. HERO ID: 1292477

[Less] The reactions of human hemoglobin A with methyl, ethyl, n-propyl, n-butyl, iso-butyl, sec-butyl, and . . . [More] The reactions of human hemoglobin A with methyl, ethyl, n-propyl, n-butyl, iso-butyl, sec-butyl, and tert-butyl isocyanide were examined in the presence and absence of inositol hexaphosphate. As the size and bulk of the aliphatic side-chain increases, the relative association rates and affinities of the beta-chains for isonitriles increase compared to those of the alpha chains. This result indicates that the beta heme pocket within hemoglobin is more open and accessible to ligand molecules than the alpha heme pocket.

INVESTIGATIONS ON ESOPHAGEAL CARCINOGENICITY BY METHYLPHENYL-NITROSAMINE AND ETHYL-ALCOHOL IN RATS

Author: Schmahl, D (1976) Cancer Letters 1:215-218. HERO ID: 1580352

[More] Methyl-phenyl-nitrosamine was administered subcutaneously or orally to Sprague-Dawley rats. Carcinomas of the esophagus were found in 46-87% of the animals. The induction period of tumors was 170-290 days. Simultaneous application of 25% ethyl alcohol given instead of drinking water did not alter tumor incidences and induction periods. Hepatotoxic effects of ethyl alcohol were not observed. Mean life expectancies of animals were not reduced.

Metabolism and distribution of DDT in mouse in relation to poisoning symptoms

Authors: Gupta, B; Agarwal, HC (1974) Indian Journal of Experimental Biology 12:402-405. HERO ID: 1239438

[More] The metabolism of DDT (50293) and its distribution in tissues of the mouse were related to toxicity symptoms. Male Swiss-Albino-mice were given a single dose of 1,400 milligrams per kilogram DDT subcutaneously. DDT metabolites were extracted, separated and identified from tissue homogenates prepared when animals were killed at 24 and 48 hours. For distribution studies, animals were observed for symptoms of toxicity and were grouped according to severity, including a category for recovered animals. Some animals were killed at each stage of poisoning and the DDT contents of brain, spinal cord, liver, kidney, and adipose tissue were determined. DDT determinations were by thin layer and gas chromatography in both studies. The major metabolite in almost all tissues was p,p'-DDE (72559). In the liver TDE (72548) was detected. DDT concentrations in the tissues increased with time and severity of poisoning symptoms. The brain and the spinal cord contained the lowest amounts of DDT, 11.4 and 12.3 ppm respectively, when the mice showed no symptoms. This increased to 61.8 and 68.6 ppm when the mice were dead and declined to 14.7 and 26.0 ppm respectively in the mice which recovered almost completely. In adipose tissue the DDT concentration increased steadily and was maximal in mice which recovered. The authors conclude that symptoms of toxicity are directly related to the concentration of DDT in the brain and spinal cord but not to concentrations in other tissues including the liver, kidney, and fat.

Cytochrome P-450 gene cluster from Rhodococcus ruber and uses thereof in ether fuel cleavage

Authors: Chauvaux, S; Miras, I; Beguin, P HERO ID: 1248195

[More] The present invention is directed to a cytochrome P-450 gene cluster involved in the cleavage of ether fuel additives. More especially, the present invention pertains to the nucleic add sequence of genes responsible for the biodegradation of ethyl tert-butyl ether (ETBE) in Rhodococcus ruber, and to several applications ensuing from the knowledge of this sequence, such as probes and biosensors for detecting a pollution by an ether fuel, and for assessing the potential of a contaminated soil to cleave said ether fuel. The invention also pertains to methods for rendering a cell able to cleave ether fuel additives, and to recombinant bacteria useful for ether fuel depollution of a contaminated effluent.
