Crossroads: How the Blues Shaped Rock 'n' Roll (and Rock Saved the Blues)

The blues revival of the early Nineteen Sixties introduced new existence to a seminal style of yankee track and encouraged an enormous new international of singers, songwriters, and rock bands. The Rolling Stones took their identify from a Muddy Waters track; Led Zeppelin solid bluesy riffs into tough rock and heavy steel; and ZZ best did megastar enterprise with boogie rhythms copped from John Lee Hooker.

The Twin Sister Planets Venus and Earth: Why are they so different?

This ebook explains the way it got here to be that Venus and Earth, whereas very related in chemical composition, zonation, measurement and heliocentric distance from the sunlight, are very various in floor environmental stipulations. it really is argued the following that those alterations should be accounted for by means of planetoid catch techniques and the next evolution of the planet-satellite procedure.

T o demonstrate apo-B localization Hoff and G a u b a t z (1975) followed a fixation method which began with washes in cacodylate buffer, followed by incubation of thin sections in a peroxidase localization medium and hydrogen peroxide. 2. This was followed by dehydration in graded ethanols and embedding in S p u r r ' s medium (Spurr, 1969). By using this m e t h o d , Hoff and G a u b a t z (1975) were successful in localizing apo-B in h u m a n intracranial arteries. The most significant single contribution made by electron microscopy to the understanding of the morphologic events in atherosclerosis is the characterization of the spindle cells located in the intima of atherosclerotic vessels of experimental animals as being " m o d i f i e d " smooth muscle cells (Parker, 1960; Parker and O d l a n d , 1966).

A histochemical identification of calcium oxalate described by Yasue (1969) also gives excellent results. Decalcification is occasionally necessary t o un­ cover the lipid core in the lesions (Vesselinovitch, 1962). d. Enzyme Histochemistry. Enzyme histochemical staining methods are 28 DRAGOSLAVA VESSELINOVITCH AND K A T T I F I S C H E R - D Z O G A also employed in the study of atherosclerosis and they are useful in studies concerned with lysosomal enzymes such as acid phosphatase, ^-glucuron­ idase, and acid lipase or cholesteryl esterase.

G o m o r i (1955) described the presence of nonspecific esterases o n various types of lipofuchsins and Gedigk and Bontke (1956) found esterases and acid phosphatases in a variety of lipid pigments. Lipofuchsins, including " c e r i o d , " are derived from a number of lipids or lipoproteins, probably by oxidation. It seems possible that this lipid oxidation may take place in en­ dothelial cells or macrophages, since most of the lipid pigments were noted within these cells. Intimal lesions may be related to progressive oxidation and accumulation of these pigments (Gonzales, 1963).
