The male human body found in an Alpine glacier on September 19, 1991 ("Tyrolean Iceman") has, for the first time in history, given scientists a chance to perform detailed anatomical, histological, and molecular investigations on the organs of a person from the Neolithic Age (5350-5100 B.P.). In the present study, tissue samples aseptically taken from the(More)
Two bacterial isolates, designated AMG-D1T and AMG-D2, were recovered from 25-35-million-year-old Dominican amber. AMG-D1T and AMG-D2 biochemically most closely resemble Staphylococcus xylosus; they differ physiologically from other staphylococci. Fatty acid analysis and comparisons with extensive databases were unable to show relatedness to any specific(More)
Optic nerves of adult fish and amphibia can successfully regenerate, in part because their glial cells, unlike those of mammals, provide an environment permissive to regrowth. We altered the environment of regenerating dorsal root axons in the frog, Rana pipiens, by grafting segments of optic nerve to test the permissiveness of CNS glial cells to other(More)
