The signaling cascades governing neuronal migration are believed to link extracellular signals to cytoskeletal components. MAP1B is a neuron-specific microtubule-associated protein implicated in the control of the dynamic stability of microtubules and in the cross-talk between microtubules and actin filaments. Here we show that Reelin can induce mode I(More)
BACKGROUND The signaling cascades governing neuronal migration and axonal guidance link extracellular signals to cytoskeletal components. MAP1B is a neuron-specific microtubule-associated protein implicated in the crosstalk between microtubules and actin filaments. RESULTS Here we show that Netrin 1 regulates, both in vivo and in vitro, mode I MAP1B(More)
In many share problems there is a priori given a natural set of possible divisions to solve the sharing problem. Cooperative games related to such share sets are introduced, which may be helpful in solving share problems. Relations between properties of share sets and properties of games are investigated. The average lexicographic value for share sets and(More)
Nash equilibria for strategic games were characterized by Peleg and Tijs (1996) as those solutions satisfying the properties of consistency, converse consistency and one-person rationality. There are other solutions, like the e-Nash equilibria, which enjoy nice properties and appear to be interesting substitutes for Nash equilibria when their existence(More)
The control of pathogenic fungi, especially downy mildew, represents the main problem in organic viticulture as only few fungicides, above all copper salts, can be used. As the copper causes problems of environmental impact, the Regulation EC n. 473/2002 fixed a ceiling on the use of copper compounds. Two years field trials were carried out in organic(More)
BACKGROUND The research question for this study was as follows: Is the Code of Ethics for Nurses in Italy (Code) a valid or useful decision-making instrument for nurses faced with ethical problems in their daily clinical practice? METHOD Focus groups were conducted to analyze specific ethical problems through 11 case studies. The analysis was conducted(More)
PURPOSE Previous studies have demonstrated the ability of retinal cells derived from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) to survive, integrate into the host retina, and mediate light responses in murine mouse models. Our aim is to determine whether these cells can also survive and integrate into the retina of a nonhuman primate, Saimiri sciureus, following(More)
We assessed the use of essential oils in controlling Fusarium wilt in tomato. Clove oil, thyme oil, rosemary oil and their major components, as well as the two commercial products, Bioxeda (based on clove oil) and Sporatec (containing rosemary oil, clove oil and thyme oil) were assessed in vitro and in a greenhouse pot trial. The in vitro tests consisted of(More)
