Suppose that the cost of electrical energy is $0.12 per kilowatt hour and that your electrical bill for 30 days is$60. Assume that the power delivered is constant over the entire 30 days. What is the power in watts? If this power is supplied by a voltage of 120 V, what current flows? Part of your electrical load is a 60 W light that is on continuously. By what percentage can your energy consumption be reduced by turning this light off?
Which of the following characteristics of chloroplasts and/or mitochondria make them seem more similar to bacterial cells than to eukaryotic cells? a. Translation is sensitive to chloramphenicol and erythromycin. b. Alternate codons are used in mitochondria genes. c. Introns are present in organelle genes. d. DNA in organelles is not arranged in nucleosomes.
D.W. is a -year-old married woman with three children under years old. She came to her physician months ago with vague complaints of intermittent fatigue, joint pain, low-grade fever, and unintentional weight loss.
Her physician noted small, patchy areas of vitiligo and a scaly rash across her nose, cheeks, back, and chest at that time. Laboratory studies revealed that D.W. had a positive antinuclear antibody (ANA) titer, positive dsDNA (positive lupus erythematosus), positive anti-Sm (anti-smooth muscle antibody), elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and decreased C and C serum complement. Joint -ray films demonstrated joint swelling without joint erosion. D.W. was subsequently diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). She was initially treated with hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) and Deltasone (Prednisone) orally per day, bed rest, and ice packs. D.W. responded well to treatment, the steroid was tapered and discontinued, and she was told she could report for follow-up every 6 months unless her symptoms became acute. D.W. resumed her job in environmental services at a large geriatric facility.
What outcome criteria would support that D.W.'s condition is stabilizing?
