Soil pH and Copper Effects on Young ‘Hamlin’ Orange Trees
Soil pH is an important factor affecting the forms of Cu in soils and, in turn, its effects on plants. A field experiment was conducted on a Candler fine sand (sandy, hyperthermic, uncoated TypicExpand
External genitalia abnormalities in male rats exposed in utero to finasteride, a 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor.
A series of studies was conducted to determine the developmental toxicity of the 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor finasteride (MK-0906) in rats, finding that the enzymatic proteins in the genital tubercle and ventral prostate may be similar. Expand
Silica in Woody Stems
Scanning electron microscopy has been used to examine silica isolated by chemical means from the wood of 32 species of woody perennial and the results are discussed in relation to possible modes of deposition of the two sorts of silica and the tendency for silica in ray parenchyma cells to be associated with polyphenols.

A comparison of three populations of Eucalyptus obliqua L'Herit. growing on acid and calcareous soils in southern Victoria.
In the Otways district, Vic., Eucalyptus obliqua exhibits a wide edaphic tolerance and evidence is presented for the existence of ecotypes in this region. A comparison of three populations fromExpand
Critical developmental periods for effects on male rat genitalia induced by finasteride, a 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor.
It is hypothesize that finasteride causes hypospadias by preventing the formation of the medial mesenchymal plate which is necessary for assisting the movement of the urogenital sinus from the base to the tip of the genital tubercle. Expand
Neurovirulence of the UC-2 and UC-8 Strains of Bluetongue Virus Serotype 11 in Newborn Mice
In newborn Balb/c mice subcutaneous inoculation of UC-8 at doses between 10−0.2 plaque forming units (PFU) and 104.8 PFU caused a severe necrotizing encephalitis whereas UC-2 at doses of up to 104.4 PFU did not affect newborn Balbs, and the difference in neurovirulence appears to be determined by the ability ofUC-8 to infect the brain from a subcutaneously inoculation site.

SUMO wrestling with Drp1 at mitochondria
New work by Henley and colleagues identifies a key role for the SUMO protease SENP3 and its target Drp1, a key mediator of mitochondrial fission, in ischaemia. Expand
CXCR3 antagonist VUF10085 binds to an intrahelical site distinct from that of the broad spectrum antagonist TAK–779
This study sets out to characterize binding sites of the specific low MW CXCR3 antagonist VUF10085 and the broad spectrum antagonist TAK‐779 which blocks CX CR3 along with CCR2 and CCR5. Expand
Evaluation of Hot Water Treatments for Management of Ditylenchus dipsaci and Fungi in Daffodil Bulbs.
Fungal genera commonly isolated from the bulbs in association with D. dipsaci were Penicillium sp. Expand
Border disease. Virus-induced decrease in thyroid hormone levels with associated hypomyelination.
Results indicate that the hypomyelination in BD may be due to depressed levels of circulating thyroid gland hormones secondary to a noninflammatory and noncytolytic infection of the thyroid gland by BDV. Expand
