Testing alleged mediumship : methods and results
Mediums claim to be able to communicate with the deceased. Such claims attract a considerable amount of public interest and, if valid, have important implications for many areas of psychology. For over 100 years, researchers ...
Haptoglobin beta chain isoforms in the plasma and peritoneal fluid of women with endometriosis
To estimate the expression of haptoglobin (Hp) beta chain isoforms in the peritoneal fluid (PF) and plasma (PL) of women with and without endometriosis.
Floating Drug Delivery Systems : Need And Development
Recent scientific and patent literature shows increased interest in academics and industrial research groups regarding the novel dosage forms that can be retained in the stomach for a prolonged and predictable period of ...
Vitamin D binding protein in endometriosis
Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis is a powerful method for identifying post-translationally modified molecules in biological fluids. We examined the presence and expression of vitamin D binding protein (DBP) in the ...
Wheat archive links long-term fungal pathogen population dynamics to air pollution
We used the PCR to study the presence of two plant pathogens in archived wheat samples from a long-term experiment started in 1843. The data were used to construct a unique 160-yr time-series of the abundance of Phaeosphaeria ...
Development of Oculimacula yallundae and O-acuformis (eyespot) on leaf sheaths of winter wheat in the UK in relation to thermal time
In a controlled environment (15/10 degrees C) (day/night) container experiment on winter wheat (cv. Avalon), eyespot incidence (percentage of plants affected) and number of leaf sheaths penetrated after 6 weeks increased ...

Relationship between oxalate, oxalate oxidase activity, oxalate sensitivity, and white mold susceptibility in Phaseolus coccineus
Sclerotinia sclerotiorum is a necrotrophic pathogen that devastates the yields of numerous crop species, including beans. The disease in common bean and pea is referred to as white mold. We examined the relationship between ...
Patterns of ascospore release in relation to phoma stem canker epidemiology in England (Leptosphaeria maculans) and Poland (Leptosphaeria biglobosa)
Experiments over five growing seasons at Rothamsted (1998/99-2002/03), four seasons at Boxworth (1998/99, 1999/2000, 2001/02, 2002/03) in England (Leptosphaeria maculans) and three seasons (1998/99-2000/01) at Poznan in ...
The use of conventional and quantitative real-time PCR assays for Polymyxa graminis to examine host plant resistance, inoculum levels and intraspecific variation
A real-time PCR protocol based on 18S rDNA sequences was developed to provide a specific, sensitive and quantitative assay for the root-infecting virus vector Polymyxa graminis. The assay was calibrated with zoospore ...
