The cells were then pulsed with 50 [[micro]Ci] of sulfur-35 (DuPontNEN NEX-041) and 50 [[micro]Ci] tyrosine-ring 3,5 3H (NEN) for 8 h.
But Simpson continued his work, and in 1989 he reported results from two new experiments -- one involving tritium and the other the radioactive isotope sulfur-35 -- that again pointed to a 17-keV particle.
