To characterize energy metabolism in rat brown adipose tissue (BAT), we carried out differential screening of a cDNA library of BAT with a cDNA probe of white adipose tissue (WAT) and isolated one cDNA clone. It contained a single open reading frame of 2,316 bases which encodes a protein of 88.2 kDa. The predicted amino acid sequence showed the highest homology (62.6%) with that of rat carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (CPTI). The transcript corresponding to this cDNA was found to be abundantly expressed in BAT and heart. Therefore, the isolated clone is concluded to encode a CPTI Hollister Outlet
like protein expressed in BAT and heart.
of educational inequality research aims at decomposing the effect of social class origin on educational choices into primary and secondary effects. We formalize this distinction and present a new and simple method that allows empirical assessment Hollister Toronto Sale
of the relative magnitudes of primary and secondary effects. Contrary to other decomposition methods, this new method is unbiased, is more intuitive, and decomposes effects of both discrete and continuous measures of social origin. The method also provides analytically derived statistical tests and is easily calculated with standard statistical software. We give examples using the Danish Longitudinal Survey of Youth.
