Transportable data from non-target arthropod field studies for the environmental risk assessment of genetically modified maize expressing an insecticidal double-stranded RNA
As part of an environmental risk assessment, the potential impact of genetically modified (GM) maize MON 87411 on non-target arthropods (NTAs) was evaluated in the field. MON 87411 confers resistanceExpand

Activated carbon adsorption of chloroacetanilide herbicides and their degradation products from surface water supplies
A recent (1995–2001) 175-site surface drinking water monitoring programme in the United States showed that one community water system (Nashville, Illinois) was particularly successful at removingExpand

Characterization of the ecological interactions of Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean, MON 89788, for use in ecological risk assessment.
As part of an ecological risk assessment, Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybean (MON 89788) was compared to a conventional control soybean variety, A3244, for disease and arthropod damage, plant response toExpand

Biodegradation of N-phosphonomethyliminodiacetic acid by microorganisms from industrial activated sludge.
A microbial population that biodegraded N-phosphonomethyliminodiacetic acid (PIA), a key component of glyphosate (N-phosphonomethylglycine) process waste, was established. The stoichiometricExpand

Microbodies in fungi: a review
SummaryMicrobodies are ubiquitous organelles in fungal cells, occurring in both vegetative hyphae and spores. They are bounded by a single membrane and may contain a crystalloid inclusion withExpand

Spheroplast formation and partial purification of microbodies from hydrocarbon-grown cells ofCladosporium resinae
SummaryCells ofCladosporium resinae form greater numbers of microbodies when grown onn-alkanes than when grown on glucose. To facilitate isolation of microbodies, hydrocarbon-grown cells wereExpand

Characterization of partially purified microbodies from hydrocarbon-grown cells of Cladosporium resinae
Cells of the filamentous fungus Cladosporium resinae synthesize many more microbodies when they are grown on an n-alkane than when they are grown on glucose. Cladosporium resinae was grown on n-dod...
