Alginate-producing, mucoid P. aeruginosa is frequently found in the lungs of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), where it causes a chronic infection. The importance of alginate in the pathogenesis was demonstrated by the ability to establish chronic P. aeruginosa lung infection in rats if P. aeruginosa entrapped in minute alginate-beads were inoculated(More)
Immunocytochemical tests with eight monoclonal antibodies against either bovine or human insulin and seven polyclonal antibodies against bovine insulin were carried out to determine the presence of insulin-like neuropeptides in the brain and affiliated neuroendocrine structures of the insect Leucophaea maderae. Reaction products identified in the brain,(More)
The aim of the present study was to define at the light-microscopic level expression of prolactin and somatotropin material in the pituitary gland of the Australian lungfish, Neoceratodus forsteri, by use of polyclonal antibodies against ovine prolactin (oPRL) and bovine somatotropin (bSTH). Substances immunologically related to mammalian oPRL as well as(More)
Sera from 22 untreated patients with recently diagnosed Graves' disease (GD) were screened in an immunocytochemical tissue assay for presumptive pituitary IgG autoantibodies, as defined by the presence of immunoreaction with rat and swine pituitary cell types. Forty four patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) and 97 healthy subjects were also studied.(More)
The expression of the receptor for epidermal growth factor (EGF) has been determined on oral squamous cell carcinomas. Immunoreactive receptor was localized using a monoclonal anti-EGF-receptor antibody which reacts with sequences in the external domain of the receptor. Frozen sections were studied from 40 patients with squamous cell carcinomas. In 16(More)
The concurrent bridging of molecular dynamics and continuum thermodynamics presents a number of challenges, mostly associated with energy transmission and changes in the constitutive description of a material across domain boundaries. In this paper, we propose a framework for simulating coarse dynamic systems in the canonical ensemble using the(More)
A hole was drilled through the Ross Ice Shelf 450 kilometers from the barrier. Scientific sampling through this hole revealed a sparse population of crustaceans, fish, and microbial biomass. The seabed consists of mid-Miocene glaciomarine mud. Geothermal heat flow is average. Oceanographic data indicate an active circulation and melting at the base of the(More)
The binding sites of polyclonal antisera raised against the β-subunit of human thyroid-stimulating hormone (hTSHβ), hTSH, and ovine TSH (oTSH) have been localized in the pituitary gland of the Australian lungfish, Neoceratodus forsteri, using light microscopy. Reactivity toward anti-TSH antiserum was demonstrated in a slightly elongated and(More)
