A directed conversation aimed at eliciting information for psychiatric diagnosis, evaluation, treatment planning, etc. The interview may be conducted by a social worker or psychologist.
Bacteriophages whose genetic material is RNA, which is single-stranded in all except the Pseudomonas phage phi 6 (BACTERIOPHAGE PHI 6). All RNA phages infect their host bacteria via the host's surface pili. Some frequently encountered RNA phages are: BF23, F2, R17, fr, PhiCb5, PhiCb12r, PhiCb8r, PhiCb23r, 7s, PP7, Q beta phage, MS2 phage, and BACTERIOPHAGE PHI 6.
Attachment Sites, Microbiological
Specific loci on both the bacterial DNA (attB) and the phage DNA (attP) which delineate the sites where recombination takes place between them, as the phage DNA becomes integrated (inserted) into the BACTERIAL DNA during LYSOGENY.
The phenomenon by which a temperate phage incorporates itself into the DNA of a bacterial host, establishing a kind of symbiotic relation between PROPHAGE and bacterium which results in the perpetuation of the prophage in all the descendants of the bacterium. Upon induction (VIRUS ACTIVATION) by various agents, such as ultraviolet radiation, the phage is released, which then becomes virulent and lyses the bacterium.
Activated form of factor VIII. The B-domain of factor VIII is proteolytically cleaved by thrombin to form factor VIIIa. Factor VIIIa exists as a non-covalent dimer in a metal-linked (probably calcium) complex and functions as a cofactor in the enzymatic activation of factor X by factor IXa. Factor VIIIa is similar in structure and generation to factor Va.
Bacteriophage (phage) KPP10 has been used in experimental phage therapies directed against P. aeruginosa infections. To examine the eligibility of phage KPP10 as a therapeutic phage, its genome was an...
Halococcus hamelinensis was isolated from hypersaline stromatolites in Shark Bay, Australia. Here we report the genome sequence (3,133,046 bp) of H. hamelinensis, which provides insights into the ecol...
The serious global TB epidemic coupled with limited diagnostic and therapeutic technologies necessitate the study of the role phage in TB treatment. Mycobacterium phage have been used for TB diagnosis...
A newly identified virulent Cronobacter sakazakii phage, ESSI-2, was isolated from fecal samples from swine. The morphological characteristics evident under a transmission electron microscope indicate...
Virulent phage ESP2949-1, which was isolated from sewage, has an icosahedral head, a contractile tail, and a double-stranded DNA genome with a length of 49,116 bp with 50.09% G+C content. Phage ESP29...
The main aim of this study is to test an intervention to reduce unsafe drinking among HIV-positive primary care patients. The intervention consists of a brief motivational interview, which...
Background: - The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) uses a standardized set of procedures to develop a pool of potential participants for research studies. Because some of the data...
As an external validation test of the performance of the VeraCode Genotyping Test for Factor V and Factor II on the BeadXpress System, clinical trials will be conducted at three sites. Thi...
OBJECTIVES: Assess the safety and long-term efficacy of monoclonal factor IX concentrate in patients with factor IX deficiency.
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the effect of a new von Willebrand factor concentrate on bleeding time, in vivo recovery, and circulating half-life of the infused factor in patients with von Will...
