Modification of gibberellin signalling (metabolism & signal transduction) in sugar beet: analysis of potential targets for crop improvement
Sugar beet, Beta vulgaris spp. vulgaris is a biennial long day plant with an obligate requirement for vernalization (prolonged exposure to low temperature). As a spring crop in temperate European climates, it is vulnerable ...
The citrus flavanone naringenin inhibits inflammatory signalling in glial cells and protects against neuroinflammatory injury
Neuroinflammation plays an integral role in the progression of neurodegeneration. In this study we investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of different classes of flavonoids (flavanones, flavanols and anthocyanidins) ...
An immunohistochemical and stereological analysis of PSI-induced nigral neuronal degeneration in the rat
Systemic administration of the proteasomal inhibitor I (PSI) to rats was reported to cause progressive nigral dopaminergic neuronal loss but this is disputed. A major controversy centres over the use of manual counting of ...
The p21-activated kinase is required for neuronal migration in the cerebral cortex
The normal formation and function of the mammalian cerebral cortex depend on the positioning of its neurones, which occurs in a highly organized, layer-specific manner. The correct morphology and movement of neurones rely ...
Overcoming the nail barrier : A systematic investigation of ungual chemical penetration enhancement
This study investigated the in vitro nail permeability of penetrants of varying lipophilicity—caffeine (CF, log P −0.07), methylparaben (MP, log P 1.96) and terbinafine (TBF, log P 3.3) and the effect of 2 novel penetration ...
Comparative analyses of the abundance of Leptosphaeria maculans and L. biglobosa ascospores in air samples using traditional PCR and Real-Time PCR
(Institute of Plant genetics PAS in Poznan, 2009)
The effect of delivery via narrow-bore needles on mesenchymal cells
Aims: Recently, there have been numerous preclinical and human studies investigating the regenerative capacity of cell suspensions following their direct injection into a target organ: the fundamental parameters for ...
Cortical interneurons require p35/Cdk5 for their migration and laminar organization
Projection neurons and interneurons populate the cerebral cortex in a layer-specific manner. Here, we studied the role of Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (Cdk5) and its activator p35 in cortical interneuron migration and disposition ...
Imagining the impossible : motor representations in anosognosia for hemiplegia
Anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP) is characterised by poor insight or underestimation of hemiplegia after brain injury. Recent explanations of AHP have used an established ‘forward model’, which proposes that normal motor ...
Hydrology of the combination irrigation system in the Wadi Faynan, Jordan
The field system of the Wadi Faynan in southern Jordan was fed by an ancient combination irrigation system that incorporated runoff farming and diversion irrigation techniques. The hydraulic characteristics of this system ...
