Controlling the food-borne pathogen Listeria (L.) monocytogenes is of great importance from a food safety perspective, and thus for human health. The consequences of failures in this regard have been exemplified by recent large listeriosis outbreaks in the USA and Europe. It is thus particularly notable that tolerance to quaternary ammonium compounds such(More)
A large listeriosis outbreak occurred in Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic in 2009 and 2010. The outbreak was traced back to a traditional Austrian curd cheese called "Quargel" which was contaminated with two distinct serovar 1/2a Listeria monocytogenes strains (QOC1 and QOC2). In this study we sequenced and analysed the genomes of both outbreak(More)
Dams were exposed to 0, 100, 500, or 1000 ppm lead acetate in their drinking water for 1 week and mated. Offspring were exposed via lactation and in their drinking water after weaning. At 13 weeks, a male and a female pup from each litter were anesthetized with urethane and prepared for recording of CA3-evoked field potentials in the hippocampal CA1 region.(More)
Tetanic stimulation at 50 Hz elicited long-term potentiation (LTP) in the hippocampal CA1 region of 28-day-old control animals. In contrast, no significant potentiation was seen following the same tetanus in animals chronically exposed to 1000 ppm of lead acetate during development. Gender differences were observed in animals exposed to 500 ppm of lead. In(More)
Many older, severely dependent patients in large psychiatric hospitals, who are often inadequately treated with traditional psychiatric approaches, have no realistic chance of improving or of returning to the community. At Marlboro (N.J.) Psychiatric Hospital, two programs--a senior citizens center and a transitional house--were founded in 1979 and 1981,(More)
