You need an X-ray to confirm this. You need to X-ray both hands then using calipers to measure to rule out any other appearance of lengthening. There are too many variables from just an ordinary picture.

Re: Citing articles and copyright

No, you are not breaking the law. You must at a minimum quote the source and give credit. It is appreciated if you use the form because it cuts down on error in verifying who credit is due to. You should link to the source that you get the resource from. So if you find the paper through pubmed but y...

Re: pGP704

I recommend you look up papers where pGP704 was used in the methods and then the paper should provide their source. Call the source and ask. I imagine the Harvard or Yale microbial library has the plasmid you are looking for.

Re: Increase in free energy in glycolysis

Increase in free energy just refers to Gibbs free energy. That free energy comes from enthalpy (internal energy) - entropy (chaos). Also expressed as Gibbs Free Energy = Enthalpy - Entropy. The idea is that with each subsequent step of glycoysis there is more chaos and thus the entropy goes up and t...

That looks too big for a coyote and being from Mercer County, NJ it would be awfully far south. I would suggest you call the local wildlife department or animal control and send them the pictures. It isn't a wolf either because that would be very far south or on the run. My guess is its a lost dog. ...

Re: What do you think these are, in my blood?

If that is in fact Bartonella, that is an interesting presentation. The cell numbers are not what I would expect and stain surprisingly purple/blue.

Re: What do you think these are, in my blood?

Not knowing anything about you or your history, I would say that you don't have anything there except for platelets that are underlying/overlying your RBCs. I would like to know what the stains are and what led you to do a smear which would make this a lot easier. If it was an intracellular parasite...

It is possible, kinda. Remember that systolic pressure is the pressure measured during ventricular contraction pushing blood out into the system. Diastolic pressure is the pressure when the ventricle is not pushing. Now, if you have a region of the arm where you are measuring the pressure the diasto...

Re: Is voluntary death from breath-holding possible?

No, they won't asphyxiate. They will only have a delayed impulse breath due to the reduced CO2 levels in their blood. The impulse breath is guided by the autonomic nervous system that is responding to mounting CO2 levels in the blood and falling O2 levels (although it is much more sensitive to CO2 l...
