Altered detrusor contractility in MPTP-treated common marmosets with bladder hyperreflexia
Bladder hyperreflexia is a common non-motor feature of Parkinson’s disease. We now report on the contractility of the isolated primate detrusor strips devoid of nerve input and show that following MPTP, the amplitude and ...
Ungulates rely less on visual cues, but more on adapting movement behaviour, when searching for forage
Finding suitable forage patches in a heterogeneous landscape, where patches change dynamically both spatially and temporally could be challenging to large herbivores, especially if they have no a priori knowledge of the ...
Diabetes confers in vitro calcific potential on serum which associates with in-vivo vascular calcification
Although vascular calcification (VC) is prevalent in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Neither is it known whether T2DM confers calcific potential (CP) on serum, enabling it to induce ...
