The relationship between the intracellular Ca2+ transient and the isometric twitch force in frog muscle fibres
The calcium-sensitive fluorescent indicator fluo-3 was used to monitor the intracellular free calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i) during isometric twitches in twenty-nine single muscle fibres from the anterior tibialis muscle ...
Identification of the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita, using monoclonal antibodies raised to non-specific esterases
The esterase isozyme from Meloidogyne incognita with pI similar to 4.95 was purified using a Rotofor electrophoresis system. The purified enzyme was then used to raise monoclonal antibodies. Hybridoma cell lines producing ...
An approximate expression of KImax for sphere/nozzle corner cracks
Based on the flat-nozzle model loaded by uniform biaxial tension, using the O-integral of the weight function method and introducing suitable free-surface correcting factors M, M, and a curvature correcting factor M, an ...
An in-vitro study of the effect of hydrocolloid patch occlusion on the penetration of triamcinolone acetonide through skin in man
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of occlusion using hydrocolloid-containing patches on in-vitro triamcinolone acetonide (TACA) penetration of the epidermis while monitoring the uptake of water by the patches ...
A study of the combustion synthesis of MoSi and MoSi-matrix composites
The combustion synthesis of MoSi from elemental powders was investigated. Higher completion of the reaction was achieved by the use of prior compaction of powders and higher heating rates. The reaction mechanism was studied ...
Comparison of two sympatric Pasteuria populations isolated from a tropical vertisol soil
An isolate of Pasteuria (designated PPMJ) recovered from the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica, was characterized using host preference, spore morphometrics, and serology, and compared with another sympatric Pasteuria ...
Health, health promotion and the elderly
This paper looks at the findings from 178 interviews with people aged over 75 years, examining the importance of health and health promotion to the elderly
Interaction between fenbendazole and piperonyl butoxide : pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic implications
The effect of the cytochrome P450 inhibitor, piperonyl butoxide on the pharmacokinetics and anthelmintic efficacy of the benzimidazole compound fenbendazole was studied in sheep and goats. Pretreatment of goats with the ...
