Then there's this:
The possibility of an anomalous coupling between the top and charm quarks and the gluon field...was explored in a model-independent way using an effective Lagrangian that is gauge invariant under a nonlinear realization of SU(3)C x SU(2)L x U(1)Y. Even for the current 200 pb-1 of integrated luminosity at the Fermilab Tevatron, the new physics scale that strongly modifies the coupling of t-c-g must be larger than about 2.5 TeV if no signal is found within a 3 sigma confidence limit. For 1 fb-1 of data, this constraint can be pushed up to 3.8 TeV.
