Purinergic contribution to small intestinal afferent hypersensitivity in a murine model of post infectious bowel disease.
Increased sensitivity of the afferent innervation of the gastrointestinal tract reportedly underlies symptoms of discomfort and pain in functional bowel disorders. The present investigation aimed to examine whether the ...
A meta-analysis of sugarbeet yield responses to nitrogen fertilizer measured in England since 1980
The data from 161 experiments testing the response of sugarbeet yield to nitrogen fertilizer were assembled in a database. Three commonly used N response models (Mitscherlich, linear plus exponential and bilinear) were ...
WNT signaling regulates self-renewal and differentiation of prostate cancer cells with stem cell characteristics
Prostate cancer cells with stem cell characteristics were identified in human prostate cancer cell lines by their ability to form from single cells self-renewing prostaspheres in non-adherent cultures. Prostaspheres exhibited ...
The support of neural stem cells transplanted into stroke-induced brain cavities by PLGA particles
Stroke causes extensive cellular loss that leads to a disintegration of the afflicted brain tissue. Although transplanted neural stein cells can recover some of the function lost after stroke, recovery is incomplete and ...
Analyzing haplodiploid inheritance of insecticide resistance in whitefly biotypes
We developed new methods for analyzing inheritance of insecticide resistance in haplocliploid arthropods and applied them to elucidate resistance of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) to an insect growth regulator, ...
Capture and use of solar radiation, water, and nitrogen by sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.)
Sugar beet is spring-sown for sugar production in most sugar beet-growing countries. It is grown as a vegetative crop and it accumulates yield (sugar) from very early in its growth cycle. As long as the sugar beet plants ...
Evaluation of recombinant cytochrome p450 enzymes as an in vitro system for metabolic clearance predictions
The aim of this study was to explore the potential of recombinant cytochrome P450 (P450) enzymes for human metabolic clearance prediction. The relative abundance and relative activity approaches were compared as methods ...
