Generation of a ribosomal DNA probe by PCR and its use in identification of fungi within the Gaeumannomyces-Phialophora complex
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to amplify a ribosomal DNA fragment from Gaewnannomyces graminis. This fragment was labelled and tested for its usefulness as a probe in restriction fragment length polymorphism ...
Interspecific differences in the nematode surface-coat between meloidogyne-ingognita and M-arenariarelated to the adhesion of the bacterium of the Pasteuria-penetrans
Spores of the bacterium Pasteuria penetrans adhered to second-stage juveniles of both Meloidogyne incognita and M. arenaria, but in standard attachment assays far fewer adhered to the latter species. Similarly, a polyclonal ...

Myofibrillar fatigue versus failure of activation during repetitive stimulation of frog muscle fibres
1. Single fibres isolated from the anterior tibialis muscle of Rana temporaria (temperature, 2-5 degrees C; sarcomere length, 2.10 microns) were fatigued using two separate protocols that led to different degrees of ...
A species of Unguicularia on oilseed rape, and its importance in studies of the epidemiology of light leaf spot (Pyrenopeziza brassicae)
Apothecia of a species of Unguicularia were found on fallen leaves of oilseed rape from November 1989 to April 1990, and from January to July 1991. On the basis of the limited literature on this genus, these apothecia were ...
