Myofibrillar fatigue versus failure of activation during repetitive stimulation of frog muscle fibres
1. Single fibres isolated from the anterior tibialis muscle of Rana temporaria (temperature, 2-5 degrees C; sarcomere length, 2.10 microns) were fatigued using two separate protocols that led to different degrees of ...
Dopamine releasing actions of NMDA in rat caudate putamen studied by fast cyclic voltammetry
Investigations in vitro (Clow & Jhamandas, 1989; Krebs et al., 1990) have shown that glutamic acid, acting at NMDA receptors in the absence of Mg2+ can stimulate the release of dopamine (DA) from nerve terminals in the rat ...
Splash dispersal of spores of Pseudocercosporella capsellae (white leaf spot) from oilseed rape leaves of different inclination, flexibility and age
Spore dispersal gradients were fitted well by exponential models in three experiments when simulated rain fell on to oilseed rape leaves infected by Pseudocercosporella capsellae (white leaf spot). Regressions of number ...
Hydrophobic core and surface charges of human beta-2-microglobulin probed by CD measurements
The roles of hydrophobic bonding and charge electrostatics in the stabilization of human beta-2-microglobulin have been probed by variations in solution conditions and monitored by circular dichroism in the near and far ...
Occurrence of Verticillium dahliae on linseed (Linum usitatissimum) in the UK and Germany
In July and August 1990, symptoms of verticilliosis were common in maturing crops of linseed sampled in Hertfordshire, UK and throughout Germany. Grey chlorotic or brown stripes were observed on green stems; on maturing, ...
Alternaria diseases of linseed
Fungi of the genus Alternaria possess very intriguing characteristics. They are some of the most cosmopolitan in terms of both their biological environments, and as agricultural commodities. Some pathotypes of Alternaria ...
