β-catenin and hedgehog signal strength can specify number and location of hair follicles in adult epidermis without recruitment of bulge stem cells
Using K14ΔNβ-cateninER transgenic mice, we show that short-term, low-level β-catenin activation stimulates de novo hair follicle formation from sebaceous glands and interfollicular epidermis, while only sustained, high-level ...
In vivo skin absorption and distribution of the nerve agent VX (O-ethyl-S-[2(diisopropylamino)ethyl] methylphosphonothioate) in the domestic white pig
The purpose of this study was to characterize the skin absorption and distribution of VX (O-ethyl-S-[2 (diisopropylamino)ethyl] methylphosphonothioate) in the domestic pig in order to evaluate the animal as a potential ...
The acute and the long-term effects of nigral lipopolysaccharide administration on dopaminergic dysfunction and glial cell activation
Sustained reactive microgliosis may contribute to the progressive degeneration of nigral dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson's disease (PD), in 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) exposed human and in non-human ...
In vitro mutation and selection of doubled-haploid Brassica napus lines with improved resistance to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum
This paper describes a new protocol to develop doubled-haploid (DH) Brassica napus lines with improved resistance to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. In this protocol, haploid seedlings derived from microspore cultures of B. napus ...
Effects of piperacillin/tazobactam on Clostridium difficile growth and toxin production in a human gut model
Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a major cause of morbidity in the nosocomial environment. Antimicrobial agents such as the third-generation cephalosporins, lincosamides and aminopenicillins are well known for their ...
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 ...
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 ...
Management of genetically modified herbicide-tolerant sugar beet for spring and autumn environmental benefit
(Institut International De Recherches Betteravieres, 2005)
Management of genetically modified herbicide tolerant sugar beet for spring and autumn environmental benefit
When used in genetically modified herbicide–tolerant (GMHT) crops, glyphosate provides great flexibility to manipulate weed populations with consequences for invertebrates and higher trophic levels, for example birds. A ...
