and gait is mostly derived from studies that measured
and reported EF as a composite score [12,18,19]. Relatively
few studies have focused on the age-related deficits
in specific components of executive function and
most of these studies were based on a traditional set of
tests of executive function, without detailing specific
components. The conclusions drawn from these studies
might, therefore, be limited by their methodologies. The
putative executive measures might not load on a single
executive construct, and might overlap with each other
Electrophoresis is defined as the transport of electrically charged particles in a direct current electric field. Electrophoretic separation is based on differential rates of migration in the bulk of the liquid phase and is not concerned with reactions occurring at the electrodes. In the early days, electrophoresis was carried out either in free solution or in the supporting media such as paper, cellulose acetate, starch, agarose, and polyacry lamide gel.

The sensitivity of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) makes it a potential diagnostic test for detection of M.
tuberculosis in samples with low bacillary load.
Aim: To assess the efficiency of PCR as compared to routine diagnostics in detection of M. tuberculosis from sputum
samples of suspects referred to a tuberculosis clinic and those identified during a morbidity survey.
Methods: Respiratory samples (sputum with or without saliva) from 144 individuals were examined by PCR, using MPB64
primers, culture and microscopy.
Thus, ultrafine dusts of the same dimensions as nanoparticles mainly penetrate the body via
inhalation and are deposited in the lungs. A portion of these dusts can be distributed directly to
the brain via the olfactory nerves. The lungs do not necessarily succeed in totally eliminating
these undesirable particles, which then cause pulmonary inflammation. This can lead to the
development of lung diseases specific to the nature of the dusts that caused them.
In another recent study by our group (Gürlek et al. 2009) similar
salivary ICTP levels were detected in smoker, non-smoker and ex-smoker patient groups
with similar clinical periodontal findings. Smoking status was confirmed by salivary
cotinine analysis but there was no clinically healthy control group in that study and the
number of teeth present, average probing depths and attachment levels were all similar in
the three study groups. There were no significant differences in saliva ICTP concentrations
between the smoker and non-smoker patient groups.
