Natural dehydration regimes as a prerequisite for the successful induction of anhydrobiosis in the nematode Rotylenchulus reniformis.
Induction of anhydrobiosis in the nematode Rotylenchulus reniformis (Linford & Oliveira) was studied using direct exposure to elevated relative humidities and conditions resembling naturalExpand

Preservation of freeze-dried liposomes by trehalose.
One of the practical difficulties with the frequently proposed use of liposomes for delivery of water-soluble substances to cells in whole organisms is that liposomes are relatively unstable duringExpand

Critical aspects of fluorescent age-pigment methodologies: Modification for accurate analysis and age assessments in aquatic organisms
Fluorescent age-pigment (FAP) quantification has recently been proposed as a means of estimating age in aquatic vertebrates and invertebrates. However, various aspects related to currently adoptedExpand

Prevention of fusion and leakage in freeze-dried liposomes by carbohydrates
Abstract The ability of various carbohydrates to prevent leakage of a small, water-soluble marker from unilamellar liposomes during freeze-drying has been investigated and compared with the abilityExpand

Anhydrobiosis in nematodes—I. The role of glycerol myo-inositol and trehalose during desiccation
Abstract 1. 1. The concentrations of free glycerol, inositol and trehalose in five species of nematodes were determined. Analyses of total inositol content were also made. 2. 2. SignificantExpand
