Re:NGC 4385
NGC 4385. He II{lambda}4686 and N III{lambda}4640 WR features are
present in this starburst galaxy, according to Durret & Tarrab (1988).
An optical spectrum by Salzer (1989) shows essentially the same
features. Conti (1991) has identified a narrow emission feature near
4660 A as [Fe III], while Salzer et al. (1989) identifies it as C IV.
We detect N III{lambda}4640 and He II{lambda}4686 in the blue bump and
C III{lambda}5696 and C IV{lambda}5808 in the red bump. We find a high
number of WR stars compared to O stars. The WR/O ratio is 0.13 for the
nuclear region of NGC 4385.

Re:NGC 4385
NGC 4385 -- WR signatures of N III {lambda}4640, He II {lambda}4686 and
possibly also C IV {lambda}5808 have been detected by Campbell & Smith
(1986). The first two lines are also found in the spectrum of Durret &
Tarrab (1988), who signal also a possible detection of
C III {lambda}4658. The findings are confirmed by Conti (1991) according
to a spectrum of Salzer; according to Conti C III {lambda}4658 has more
likely to be identified with [Fe III] {lambda}4658.

UM 499 (UGC 7515, Mkn 52, NGC 4385); Figure 13
Figure 13a shows the HI distribution of the UM 499 system. UM 499 (Figure
13b) is the other HII galaxy added to the sample by relaxing the absolute
magnitude selection criterion. Like UM 477, it is morphologically distinct
from the ``true'' dwarfs in the sample. Its HI distribution is well
resolved, revealing a centrally peaked column density structure, in
contrast to the double lobed structure of UM 477. Optically, it has the
appearance of a barred disk galaxy with faint traces of spiral structure.
The velocity field indicates differential rotation, though it lacks
spatial and velocity resolution to detect any asymmetries that might
The companion UM 499A, given in Figure 13c, is a cataloged galaxy
(MCG +00-32-004) lying west of UM 499. It has a very disturbed HI
distribution, with a central density enhancement. It has a low surface
brightness stellar component at the center of its neutral gas
distribution, and an HI velocity field showing ordered rotation, likely
solid body rotation.

The bar in NGC 4385 is not well defined
except by the non-symmetrical luminosity
distribution of spiral-like fragments; there is
no smooth, definite bar as in NGC 1300.
The redshift is v_o = 1969 km/s.

Re:NGC 4385
NGC 4385 (Mrk 52); SBas, starburst.
A large bibliography and an extensive discussion of the UV and optical
properties of this galaxy are given in Durret & Tarrab (1988). To
summarize, NGC 4385 is a starburst galaxy with plentiful H I and extended
H II. It is a typical H II region galaxy, where the ionized gas is
concentrated in a central region of a few kiloparsecs and many H II
regions are distributed along the spiral arms. The presence of the
Wolf-Rayet emission feature at 4650 A, as well as the possible P Cygni
profiles in N V and C IV in the UV, suggest the present of Wolf-Rayet
stars. Population synthesis implies that the dominant contribution is
given by WN7 and WC8.

Re:NGC 4385
NGC 4385 (Mrk 52). This galaxy studied in PE87 is manifestly a later-type
spiral, probably SBb or SBbc, but with much weaker arms than is typical
of these classes. While included in the discussion of PE87, we will
discuss it no further here.
