Six Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. phaseoli strains (Ciat 151, Ciat 895, Ciat 899, CE3, H2C, Kim5s) were tested for nodule occupancy in different bean cultivars at two field sites (one fertile, one acid tropical soil) and in the greenhouse. The effects of several environmental factors such as low pH, high temperature, Al and Mn toxicity, iron deficiency, bean(More)
Indomethacin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are commonly used to indirectly deduce the possible role of PGs in a process being studied. The objective of this study was to determine if indomethacin, at concentrations comparable to plasma and tissue levels obtained in humans taking therapeutic doses, predisposes human gastric cells to injury(More)
BACKGROUND Traditional therapy for refractory chylothorax in the pediatric population has included pleurodesis and thoracic duct ligation. These procedures are associated with high morbidity and questionable success rates. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed our experience with 15 patients who underwent treatment for chylous effusions using(More)
BACKGROUND The mechanism(s) whereby epidermal growth factor (EGF) protects against cellular injury remains poorly understood. Previous data in our laboratory have suggested that EGF-induced cellular proliferation in human colonic carcinoma cells (Caco-2) may involve changes in intracellular calcium content ([Ca(2+)](i)). Our current objective was to(More)
BACKGROUND The mechanism(s) whereby nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) attenuate colorectal tumor growth remains poorly understood. This study determined if NSAIDs decreased epidermal growth factor (EGF)-induced proliferation in human colonic tumor (Caco-2) cells and whether this process involved the inhibition of prostaglandin (PG) synthesis.

The relationship between soil acidity and polyamine (putrescine, spermidine, spermine) concentrations in roots was evaluated and compared to (1) nodule numbers in common beans and (2) tannin concentrations in roots. Six Phaseolus vulgaris cultivars were grown in pots in a greenhouse in soil at pH 4.5 or 5.5 and inoculated with Rhizobium leguminosarum bv.(More)
A hypoxia chamber was constructed which allowed for the sequential sampling and blood gas analysis of buffer bathing cells in culture which were subjected to graded periods of hypoxia. Following hypoxia, the human fetal small intestinal cells (CCL-241) were placed into a normoxic environment for the remainder of a 24 h study period. A cytotoxicity assay(More)
Z . Naturforsch. 43c, 636-640 (1988); received March 7/May 30, 1988 Vicia faba, Callus and Liquid Cultures, Regeneration, Phytoalexins Callus cultures of various cultivars of Vicia faba were studied for regeneration. During callus growth on agar or in liquid medium a black tissue was often observed correlated with an autolysis of some cells. With those(More)
