Compression tests of GN1 and GN2 scaffolds were performed in wet conditions using PBS solutions by means of a universal testing machine until 75% deformation (10 N load cell at a displacement rate = 0.01 mm/s).
The taxonomic identification of the GN2 was based on 16s rDNA analysis.
The authors soon found, however, that nutrient utilization patterns obtained with Biolog GN2 microtiter plates that best discriminated among isolates from humans and geese with respect to Wyth Lake (the study reported here) were not the same as those that best discriminated between humans and geese in the Silver Lake study.
The same bristle hair stimulation traces were also adequate to identify spikes originating from GN2. Although this neuron's spike also originates at the point of stimulation and propagates in both directions, it is smaller in amplitude and conduction velocity than GN1 (0.41 mV and 2.6 m/s), and does not appear on our segment 10 recording site (Fig.
Soils in the study site are typically Gn2.15 according to Northcote (1979).
