A case of tropical pyomyositis in a temperate climate is reported and 29 more cases are reviewed from the literature. Because of its rarity and deceiving clinical presentation, the disorder may go unrecognized for weeks in nontropical regions. The role of various imaging modalities in timely and accurate diagnosis and nonsurgical management of this disorder(More)
The release and survival of ascospores of a UK Sclerotinia sclerotiorum isolate were studied. Apothecia placed in a spore clock apparatus with different lighting regimes at 15 degrees C released ascospores continuously with an increasing rate for the duration of experiments (72-84 h). Spore release was not confined to light or dark periods in alternating(More)
Neutrophil adhesion and recruitment represents one of the early cellular events that occur during hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (IR) injury and plays a critical role in determining the extent of tissue damage. The adhesion molecules, such as selectins and intercellular adhesion molecules (ICAM), are important in mediating neutrophil-endothelial cell(More)
ABSTRACT The feasibility of developing a forecasting system for carpogenic germination of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum sclerotia was investigated in the laboratory by determining key relationships among temperature, soil water potential, and carpogenic germination for sclerotia of two S. sclerotiorum isolates. Germination of multiple burials of sclerotia to(More)
ABSTRACT A predictive model for production of apothecia by carpogenic germination of sclerotia is presented for Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. The model is based on the assumption that a conditioning phase must be completed before a subsequent germination phase can occur. Experiments involving transfer of sclerotia from one temperature regime to another allowed(More)
What is a narrative environment? Simply put, it is a space that facilitates a story. Although this art has been perfected in the real world by theme park designers, in the virtual world, space as a narrative medium is just beginning to be explored. Current applications focus on three dimensions, but ignore the fourth— time. Thus much of cyerspace is, at(More)
The plant pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum can cause serious losses on lettuce crops worldwide and as for most other susceptible crops, control relies on the application of fungicides, which target airborne ascospores. However, the efficacy of this approach depends on accurate timing of these sprays, which could be improved by an understanding of the(More)
