Chemiosmotic phosphorilization is COMPLETELY different from substrate-level phosphorilization. Chemiosmosis (contrary to its name doesnt involve water) involves the breaking down of adenosine triphosphate to use energy for the pumping and leaking of the hydrogen protons, across a double membrane. substrate level phosphorilization is when the extra phosphate is handed to the intermediate, usually from NADH, or FADH.

You can never be too careful

Pubic Lice

WHAT IS IT?
Pubic lice, commonly referred to as "crabs" are small, crab-shaped insects (Pthirus pubis), which attach themselves to human hairs. Crabs usually live in the pubic hair but can sometimes be found in axillary or armpit hair, facial hair, or even eyelashes. Infection is common and found worldwide.

WHAT CAUSES IT?
Pubic lice occur when adult lice lay eggs, called nits, on the hair shaft close to the skin. The egg, which is white to yellow and oval shaped, requires 7-10 days to hatch into a nymph. Nymphs and adult lice feed on human blood.

WHAT ARE ITS COMMON SYMPTOMS?
It is possible to be infested with pubic lice and have no symptoms. More commonly, itching occurs, which worsens at night. Pubic lice are difficult to see because of their location and appearance. Grayish-white lice blend in with white skin and brown lice can be mistaken for moles or can be hard to see on black skin. A rash or faint bluish spots might be noted at the site of bites. If lice infest the eyebrows or eyelashes, the eyes may become inflamed.

HOW IS IT TRANSMITTED?
Pubic lice are usually transmitted through direct physical contact, especially of the genital areas. Occasionally transmission can occur through contact with an infested person's sheets, towels or clothes, as they can survive without a human host for one to two days. They are rarely transmitted from furniture or toilet seats because the lice that fall from their host are usually injured or dying. Lice cannot jump from person to person, nor can they be transmitted to or by animals. Infestation with pubic lice and the development of noticeable symptoms may occur immediately, or may be delayed 2-4 weeks if eggs have not hatched.

HOW IS IT TREATED?
Because pubic lice and their eggs are not affected by ordinary soap and water, your health care provider will recommend a medication to destroy the lice. Permethrin 1% crème rinse is most commonly used, and a single treatment is almost always effective. This is available without a prescription through the pharmacy. It is important that you read all of the directions before beginning, and follow them precisely.

Treatment procedure for crab lice (using Permethrin 1% crème rinse):

Wash pubic hair; towel dry.

Saturate hair with crème rinse; leave on for 10 minutes; thoroughly rinse off with water; dry with a clean towel.

Following treatment, nits may still be attached to hair shafts. Comb with a fine-tooth comb or use tweezers or fingernails to remove nits.

CAN YOU PREVENT IT?
Once the lice have been destroyed by treatment, it is important to take the following measures to prevent re-infestation.

Put on clean clothing following treatment.

Machine wash all clothing (especially undergarments), towels, bed linen and any items that have come in contact with the skin since the onset of symptoms. Items that cannot be laundered may be dry cleaned, or wrapped in a plastic bag for 30 days.

Sanitize the bathroom and shower. You may use bathroom cleaner or bleach solution.

Inform others with whom you have had recent intimate contact so they can be examined for signs of infestation.

Avoid intimate contact until condition is resolved and partners, if infested, have also completed treatment.

Re-treat one time only in 7-10 days if lice are still found. Seek medical assistance if the problem persists.

WHAT IF LICE ARE IN MY EYEBROWS/EYELASHES?
If only a few nits or lice are found then you may be able to remove them with your fingernails or by using a RIT comb. If additional treatment is needed then see your health care provider as a prescription for an opthamalic-grade petrolatum ointment may be needed. DO NOT USE Permethrin or pryethrin products on your face - near eyes or mouth.

REMEMBER:
It is common to have itching present after treatment for 1-2 weeks due to the allergic reaction from the bites. However, please notify the Dial-A-Nurse if you have any of the following problems:

Redness, swelling, tenderness or drainage around areas of infestation

Accidental contact of medication with your eyes

Questions or concerns about your treatment

Those Brits

Millennium Dome pubic lice up for sale

People will be able to buy pubic lice from the Millennium Dome's Body Zone after plans to sell off the limbs and torso had to be scrapped.

There were plans to sell off the Zone to raise £10m, but they've been dropped because it's been discovered that the Zone would collapse if engineers try to take it apart

Henry Butchers International, the specialist auctioneer chosen to sell off the Dome's zones and its state-of-the-art equipment, say there are other opportunities to buy.

"The Body Zone is structurally unsuited for relocation, so instead we will be attempting to sell some of the body parts. We will be selling the heart and the brains and the eye, and the pubic lice," said John Cowing.

Even attempting to sell off the body's panels, in the same way the company disposed of pieces of turf at Cardiff Arms Park in the late 1990s, would not work, reports The Independent.

A public auction will be held at the Dome's Skyscape pavilion from 27 February to 2 March, but Butchers expect to shift much of the merchandise by private treaty either to sponsors or collectors after the sale brochures are sent out in early January.
