Introduction of alien herbivores in sensitive island systems has resulted in massive effects on vegetation cover, floristic richness and composition of communities; some species can be even totally extirpated by grazing pressure. Goats Capra hircus and wild rabbits Oryctolagus cuniculus were introduced in the Canary Islands around 500 B.C. Barbary ground(More)
The effect of gallic acid (3,4,5-trihydroxybenzoic acid) and its alkyl esters (methyl, propyl, octyl, and lauryl) has been studied on several tumoral and nontumoral cells. Three types of behavior have been observed; the first type is represented by the mouse B cell lymphoma Wehi 231 cell line in which death occurs according to the biochemical(More)
We here report a successful pregnancy and healthy childbirth obtained in a case of total globozoospermia after intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) without assisted oocyte activation (AOA). Two semen analyses showed 100% globozoospermia on classic spermocytogram. Motile sperm organelle morphology examination (MSOME) analysis at(More)
The thioesterase activity of porcine pancreatic phospholipase A2 has been investigated with non-phospholipid substrates. The acyl-CoA hydrolase activity towards acyl-CoA derivatives is specific for long chain fatty acids (14 C, 16 C) but is unable to hydrolyze short chain acyl-CoA compounds (below 8 C). The same enzyme also shows protein deacylase activity(More)
The effect of lauryl gallate (antioxidant E-312) has been studied on the mouse B-cell lymphoma line Wehi 231. This compound is able to inhibit protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) in whole cells and in crude extracts with a better efficiency than other well-known PTK inhibitors such as herbimycin or genistein. Initial events triggered upon the incubation of(More)
The inhibitory effect of gallic acid (3,4,5-trihydroxybenzoic acid), and its ester derivatives methyl, propyl, octyl and lauryl has been tested on the tyrosine kinase activity of affinity purified c-Src from human platelets, using the artificial substrate Poly (Glu,Na,Tyr) 4:1. When tested as inhibitor of the autophosphorylation of the enzyme and the(More)
Isolation and biochemical and molecular identification of 303 strains of Escherichia coli obtained from diarrheic and healthy young alpacas of Puno-Peru, were realized. PCR amplification for 7 virulence factor genes associated with STEC, STEC O157:H7, EPEC: sxt1, sxt2, rfbO157, fliCH7, hlyA, eae y bfp were determined. A total of 39 strains (12.88%) showed(More)
