The expression and localisation of mRNAs for 5 alpha reductase Type I (5 alpha R-I) and Type II (5 alpha R-II) isoenzymes in human benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) were investigated by RT-PCR and by in mini hybridisation (ISH) using digoxigenin labelled riboprobes. In addition, we also examined the isoenzymes mRNA expression in primary BPH cultures of… (More)
We have developed a coculture system for primary fibroblast and epithelial cells derived from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) that retained many of the characteristics of the intact human prostate. In contrast to separately cultured prostate fibroblast and epithelial cells, cocultures of fibroblasts and epithelial cells maintained messenger ribonucleic… (More)
Pasteurella multocida serogroup A is commonly isolated from nasal swabs of clinically healthy calves and also from diseased lung tissue in bovine pneumonia. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of the virulent strain P. multocida 671/90, which has been characterized previously in experimental infections of calves and mice.
Pasteurella multocida is a major pathogen of farm animals and has worldwide distribution. Here we report the draft genome sequences of four strains that were isolated from animals in the United Kingdom and the United States and represent pathogenic and commensal presentation of the bacterium.
