Mediterranean forests are vulnerable to numerous threats including wildfires due to a combination of climatic factors and increased urbanization. In addition, increased temperatures and summer drought lead to increased risk of forest fires as a result of climate change. This may have important consequences for C dynamics and balance in these ecosystems.(More)
Membrane proteins in circulating blood cells were examined in chick embryos on the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 10th incubation day, in chicks immediately after hatching, and in adult birds. Haemoglobin electrophoresis patterns were determined on cellulose acetate after solubilisation with urea, and in gradient of pH and concentration on acrylamide gels after(More)
The complete lipoprotein profile is thought to give more information about the individual risk of coronary heart disease than total cholesterol alone. Although total cholesterol has a low sensitivity in the correct assessment of the risk of coronary heart disease, it may be of value in screening programs because of its low cost. In this study of 5,335(More)
An analysis of red cell membrane proteins in acute and chronic lymphatic leukaemia, Hodgkin's disease, lymphosarcoma, and myeloma was carried out. The electrophoretic pattern after solubilisation in urea or SDS was examined, along with migration on cellulose acetate or acrylamide in different buffers. Protein acid, basic and neutral amino acid percentages(More)
Epidemiological surveys indicate an inverse relationship between cancer occurrence and serum cholesterol. Low serum cholesterol might be either a risk factor for cancer or the effect of factors associated with cancer itself, such as biological properties of malignant cells, tumor mass, and poor nutritional status. We have measured serum cholesterol in 975(More)
Understanding the spatial and temporal variation in soil respiration within small geographic areas is essential to accurately assess the carbon budget on a global scale. In this study, we investigated the factors controlling soil respiration in an altitudinal gradient in a southern Mediterranean mixed pine–oak forest ecosystem in the north face of the(More)
A study of membrane proteins in pernicious anaemia and other haemolitic and anhaemolytic erythropathies is reported. Cellulose acetate and acrylamide gel electrophoresis was carried out and acid, neutral and basic amino acid contents were determined. Relatively specific alterations were noted. Chromatographic analysis of the amino acids suggested that in(More)
