In vitro skin absorption and decontamination of sulphur mustard : Comparison of human and pig-ear skin
The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of an in vitro skin diffusion cell system as a model for assessing decontaminants against the chemical warfare agent sulphur mustard (SM). The in vitro absorption rates of SM ...
Responses of tomato CVs grown to fruit-harvest stage under zinc stress in glasshouse conditions
A glasshouse pot experiment, with three tomato cultivars (CVs), Blizzard, Calypso, and Liberto, was carried out to investigate the effects of three levels of Zn (0.01, 0.5, and 30 mg L-1), supplied in nutrient solution, ...
Effects of temperature on germination and hyphal growth from ascospores of A-group and B-group Leptosphaeria maculans (phoma stem canker of oilseed rape)
Ascospores of both A-group and B-group Leptosphaeria maculans germinated at temperatures from 5-20degreesC on distilled water agar or detached oilseed rape leaves. After 2 h of incubation on water agar, some A-group ...
Perceived control over events in the world in patients with eating disorders: a preliminary study
A number of theoretical models of anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN) have emphasised the role of perceived control in the onset and maintenance of the psychopathology. The present study investigated these claims ...
Opto-thermal measurement of barrier cream residence time on skin in-vivo
We report the non-invasive opto-thermal measurement of the residence time of a barrier cream on in-vivo skin. These measurements revealed an approximately exponential decrease of cream layer thickness with a 1/e disappearance ...

P-419: Phospholipase C isoforms and differentiation state of cultured human Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells.
Phospholipase C (PLC) plays an important role in cellular signalling. A number of isoforms of PLC exist; PLCγ1 is highly expressed in fetal and neoplastic tissue, while PLCδ1 is present in large amounts in differentiated ...
The roles of ascospores and conidia of Pyrenopeziza brassicae in light leaf spot epidemics on winter oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in the UK
Ascospores of Pyrenopeziza brassicae were produced in apothecia (cup-shaped ascomata) on oilseed rape debris. The conidia, which were morphologically identical to the ascospores, were produced in acervular conidiomata on ...
