Differential Virulence of Clinical and Bovine-Biased Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7 Genotypes in Piglet and Dutch Belted Rabbit Models
ABSTRACT Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7 (EHEC O157) is an important cause of food and waterborne illness in the developed countries. Cattle are a reservoir host of EHEC O157 and a majorExpand
There is a growing trend among developed countries to increase the participation of youth in societal and institutional decision-making. The challenge is to move away from an illusion ofExpand
Protective role of 17 beta -estradiol against the development of Helicobacter pylori-induced gastric cancer in INS-GAS mice.
The incidence of gastric cancer is higher in men than women. Epidemiological studies suggest that female hormones reduce gastric cancer risk. We examined the effect of ovarian-dependent femaleExpand
17 β-estradiol suppresses Helicobacter pylori-induced gastric pathology in male hypergastrinemic INS-GAS mice.
Helicobacter pylori-associated gastric cancer is male predominant and animal studies suggest that sex hormones influence gastric carcinogenesis. We investigated the effects of 17β-estradiol (E2) orExpand
Mucor circinelloides: Growth, Maintenance, and Genetic Manipulation
Mucor circinelloides is a fungus that belongs to the order Mucorales. It grows as mold in the environment and can cause mucormycosis, a potentially fatal infection in immunocompromised patients. M.Expand
Plasmid-Mediated Quinolone Resistance in Shigella flexneri Isolated From Macaques
Non-human primates (NHPs) for biomedical research are commonly infected with Shigella spp. that can cause acute dysentery or chronic episodic diarrhea. These animals are often prophylactically andExpand
Construction of a Recyclable Genetic Marker and Serial Gene Deletions in the Human Pathogenic Mucorales Mucor circinelloides
Mucor circinelloides is a human pathogen, biofuel producer, and model system that belongs to a basal fungal lineage; however, the genetics of this fungus are limited. In contrast to ascomycetes andExpand
Laser-Assisted In Vitro Fertilization Facilitates Fertilization of Vitrified-Warmed C57BL/6 Mouse Oocytes with Fresh and Frozen-Thawed Spermatozoa, Producing Live Pups
The utility of cryopreserved mouse gametes for reproduction of transgenic mice depends on development of assisted reproductive technologies, including vitrification of unfertilized mouse oocytes. DueExpand
Summer Healthy-Lifestyle Intervention Program for Young Children Who Are Overweight: Results from a Nonrandomized Pilot Trial
Objective: To examine initial outcomes of an 8-week Healthy-Lifestyle Intervention Program (HIP) which included children's participation in a daily summer camp along with parents' participation in aExpand
