NEW ENZYMES ISOLATED HERE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 3 December 1959
NEW ENZYMES ISOLATED HERE Two enzymes that accomplish a vital phase of nutrition and growth— the incorporation'of sulphur into living cells—have been isolated by biochemists at the University of California Medical Center, San Francisco. One of the newly-isolated enzymes acts upon methionine — an essential amino acid and source of sulphur in food — to form an intermediate compound, cystathionine. The second enzyme cleaves cystathionine to produce cystine, the main sulphur-containing substance in human and animal cells. Methionine cannot be manufactured in the body and must be obtained in food. Cystine can be made in the body, and it gets its sulphur from methionine. The w'ork was done by Dr. David M. Greenberg, chairman of the department of biochemistry, in collaboration with two foreign scientists who came to the Medical Center for advanced training. They were Dr. Ahmed S. M. Selim of Cairo and the late Dr. Yoshihiko Matsuo, who died shortly after his recent return to Japan. The stu...

STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT KERR REGARDING STUDENT REGULATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 17 December 1959
STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT KERR REGARDING STUDENT REGULATIONS Since the issuance on October 22 of the Regulations on Student Government, Student Organizations, and Use of University Facilities, many questions of interpretation have been qraised on the various campuses. Several appear c to be of sufficient importance to justify an additional statement. L Can student governments and student organizations sponsor the discussion on campus of off-campus issues? Of course they can. In fact, even a moderately careful reading of the regulations should show that they liberalize the conditions under which such discussions may be held. The most important liberalization is to permit the formulation of rules under which candidates for public office and the proponents and opponents of election issues may espouse their causes on the campuses. 2. Can recognized student organizations take positions on ofT-campus issues? The answer is yes so long as they do not purport to act in the name of the Universit...

X-RAYS AND HEREDITY [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 17 December 1959
X-RAYS AND HEREDITY Diagnostic x-rays have been widely and greatly overestimated as a source of radiation that might affect heredity. This is the major conclusion of a unique study of x-ray examinations in a large and representative sample of the population, recently completed by University of California radiation safety consultants in cooperation with the Permanente Medical Group of Oakland. Their study gives the first direct calculation of diagnostic irradiation of the reproductive organs in persons under 30. The investigators report that the average person in their 100,000—patient sample would receive about 1.5 roentgens of radiation (the figure may be as low as 1.2) to the ovaries or testes from diagnostic x-rays during the first 30 years of life. This is only about one-third of the most widely-quoted figures based on previous, indirect estimates of genetically significant radiation. It is about one-third to one-half the ex- posure from natural "background'* radiation sources —c...

Notes From the Union Sports and Recreation Program [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 17 December 1959
Notes From the Union Sports and Recreation Program U.C.M.C. CAGERS LOSE TO V.F.W. OF HUNTER'S POINT The U.C.Medical Center Basketball Team dropped its first two basketball games to the high-towering V.F.W. and Hunters Point teams on the local ccurt during the past week. The scoring punch of Ron Marin da, Hap Stallman, and Duke Lewis held a little sway over the height and rebounding abilities of the latter two teams. Despite first—half leads in both instances, the Medical Center Team lost 73 to 96 to V.F.W. and 59 to 65 to Hunters Point. Coach Bud Alexander states "The team looks exceptionally good even though they lost." Bud considers the team capable of coming up with a first-place trophy in the City "Class A" League which will begin after the Christmas vacation. Bud also states "Our boys out-played both of these teams from the floor. Our big problem is lack of height. Gordon Helmers, 6 ft. 4 in. center, was out due to an ankle injury for the Hunters Point game, and Bob Albo, 6 ft....
