Transfer of alien chromosome segments from various Triticeae species into cultivated wheats, commonly referred to as "chromosome engineering", is currently benefiting from the recent, impressive advancements in molecular genetics, cytogenetics and genomics, which are providing new insights into the genetic and physical organization of even complex plant(More)
A 43-year-old male who sustained a superficial hand injury developed streptococcal toxic shock-like syndrome and died within 48 hours. The clinical course of the illness in this previously well patient was rapid and fulminant. The organism responsible was a group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus which was identified as opacity factor negative, M serotype 1, T(More)
Clostridium sordellii is an infrequent human pathogen. It has been demonstrated to be occasionally responsible for myonecrosis or gas gangrene. Interestingly, in the obstetric literature, some cases of postpartum maternal deaths have been associated with C sordellii infection causing a rapidly lethal toxin mediated syndrome. This is the first reported case(More)
The present study aimed to do an in-depth analysis of the effect of leaf scald on rice physiology by combining gas exchange measurements, photosynthetic pigment pools and examining the activities of enzymes involved in the antioxidant system. The size of leaf scald lesions increased from 3.1 mm at 24 h after inoculation (hai) to 25.2 mm at 120 hai. For the(More)
The avidin-biotin-peroxidase technique is proposed for the immunological localization of beta-endorphin in the rat spinal cord. A rabbit specific antibody anti-human beta-endorphin was first obtained and then identified by immunoblotting and incubated with a quick-frozen section of young rat spinal cord. The use of a specific antibody with the(More)
