Let's get pickled! : a Pickles collection by Brian Crane( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Growing old is great fun when you keep your sense of humor and never forget the wonder and energy of childhood. Let's Get Pickled!, the latest collection of Pickles cartoons, feeds on unconditional love-of pets, old friends, and, of course, family-to provide zinger-filled humor. Earl and Opal, a wise-but-spunky loving couple, have been married for 50-plus years. The Pickles' 30-something remarried daughter and her son round out this sweet intergenerational comic that appeals to both sexes and all age groups. Pickles appears in almost 500 newspapers and has steadily grown in popularity since its debut 16 years ago. Readers nationwide turn to the strip again and again for its good-natured wit and wry humor."--Publisher description

Getting old is not for sissies. But as Brian Crane's crotchety but endearing seniors Earl and Opal Pickles do it, it can be humorous and often touching. This seventh collection continues the adventures of grandparents Earl and Opal; their precocious grandson, Nelson; quirky family members and friends; and the family's dog and cat, who offer their own distinctive views of the goings-on

The cook( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's a long holiday weekend at the Lambda Epsilon Zeta sorority house, and a handful of girls stay behind to indulge in three days of partying, sex games, and strangely delicious meals prepared by the weird new chef. But as the sisters begin to disappear one-by-one, the remaining coeds find themselves trapped in a nightmare of graphic slaughter, involuntary cannibalism, and heaping helpings of gourmet nudity. Mark Hengst, Makinna Ridgway, and Kit Paquin star in this bloodspattered black comedy that cuts like a knife, tastes like chicken and serves up a scrumptious feast of carnage courtesy of The Cook

"By letter dated the 27 November, 1975, the Honourable Warren Allmand, Solicitor General of Canada, requested the Correctional Investigator: "... to inquire into the matter of the Millhaven incident in accordance with the following terms of reference: the events leading up to the use of gas and force in the cell range G-1 and the ECA (environment control area) of Millhaven Institution, on November 3rd, 1975, as well as the events following the said use of gas and force, and whether the directives, instructions, and standing orders which pertain to the use of gas and force were followed: and to make suggestions with a view to improving the directives, instructions, and standing orders which pertain to the use of gas and force, and/or the way in which such directives, instructions, and standing orders are used.""--p.

Structure and enzymology of the chemotaxis histidine kinase, CheA by Anna Rusch Greenswag( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Bacterial chemotaxis enables changes in motility via response to the surrounding chemical environment and is noted for its high signal gain, range, and sensitivity. The efficacy of the bacterial chemotaxis signaling pathway is highly dependent on the propagation of the extracellular chemical signal through a hexagonal array comprised of: methyl-accepting chemotaxis protein receptors, histidine kinase CheA, and coupling protein CheW. CheA is the principal enzyme in the chemotaxis pathway and is composed of five domains (P1-5). Initiation of the phospho-relay by CheA ends in rotational switching of the flagellar rotor. CheA only achieves a broad range of autophosphorylation activity when associated with chemoreceptors. This dissertation focuses on the structural and biochemical changes during the CheA autophosphorylation event. The propensity of Thermotoga maritima CheA to naturally undergo trans autophosphorylation was elucidated and strategic mutations enabled generation of disulfide-locked CheA variants to further probe protein dynamics. Employing small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS), the resting state of CheA was determined to be globular. Where upon nucleotide addition the protein transitioned to a dynamic state as a result of the movement of P1 and P4 domains to facilitate transfer of the [gamma]-phosphate. Coupling crystallographic and biochemical data, a model was generated of CheA that is able to account for variances in enzymatic activity, incorporating key structural features to the functional response of signal transduction. To further the understanding the influence the receptors impart to CheA, chemoreceptor cytoplasmic kinase-control modules based on the E. coli aspartate receptor, Tar, were covalently fused into a dimer and trimerized by a foldon domain (TarFO). SAXS, multiangle light scattering, and pulsed-dipolar electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy of spinlabeled proteins indicate that the TarFO is soluble, monodisperse, and assembles into homogenous trimers wherein the protein interaction regions closely associate at the opposite ends of the foldon domain. The TarFO activates CheA autophosphorylation to the same degree as membrane integrated receptors and stabilizes a planar conformation of the kinase consistent with current array models for the assembly state of the ternary complex. Overall, these studies illuminate a planar CheA active structure and provide a more in depth investigation of the CheA autophosphorylation event

Characterizing Protein Conformations Using Copper-Based Pulsed Dipolar Esr Spectroscopy And Complimentary Biophysical Methods by Gregory Edward Merz( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Proteins play an important and diverse role in all living organisms. If proteins are unable to carry out their prescribed functions, the results can be problematic, or even fatal, for an organism. For example, in humans, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's are just 2 of the many diseases caused by proteins which either do not function, or function incorrectly. Proteins can also perform chemical transformations which are very difficult via synthetic methods, such as the oxidation of methane to methanol and the fixation of dinitrogen to ammonia. Understanding the mechanisms of these processes may lead to much more efficient catalysts, greatly reducing the large energy expenditures currently required. In biochemistry, the link between structure and function has been well established, and so in order to understand the mechanisms and functions of proteins, we must understand their structures. In many cases, the structures of flexible proteins can be difficult to elucidate, especially if multiple conformations exist simultaneously. Here, we use copper-based pulsed dipolar ESR spectroscopy (PDS) and other, complimentary biophysical and biochemical methods to characterize protein conformations in flexible proteins. These include mutants of Superoxide Dismutase 1 (SOD1) which cause familial ALS, and the Drosophila melanogaster circadian clock protein Period. By using these techniques, we show that fALS mutants of SOD1 tend to aggregate in solution as opposed to the wild-type (WT) protein which does not. Furthermore, we propose a structural mechanism by which this aggregation occurs. In the Period protein, we have discerned small differences in the conformation of mutants that mimic phosphorylation vs. the WT. These subtle changes may cause differences in circadian behavior observed in fruit flies
