Biological stress response terminology: Integrating the concepts of adaptive response and preconditioning stress within a hormetic dose-response framework.
This article offers a set of recommendations that scientists believe can achieve greater conceptual harmony in dose-response terminology, as well as better understanding and communication across the broad spectrum of biological disciplines. Expand
Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection: role of a surface protein in the attachment organelle.
Attachment of Mycoplasma pneumoniae to host cell by means of a specialized terminus initiates infection. Monoclonal antibodies to a surface protein (Pl) inhibit this process, and react with a regionExpand
Acute exposure of laboratory mice to manganese oxide.
An acute inhalation exposure of laboratory mice to respirable Mn3O4 aerosols is described and systemic distribution of the manganese was observed in various tissues following exposure. Expand
Phylogeny of Rubus Subgenus Idaeobatus (Rosaceae) and its Implications Toward Colonization of the Hawaiian Islands
Sequence identity, genetic distance, and phylogenetic analysis all suggest that R. macraei is distantly related to New World and Asian species of subg. Expand
Size Considerations for Establishing a Standard for Inhalable Particles
The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required, under the amended Clean Air Act of 1977, to review the scientific basis for the total suspended par-ticulate (TSP) ambient air qualityExpand
Increased pulmonary susceptibility to streptococcal infection following inhalation of manganese oxide.
In this study, laboratory mice exposed to manganese oxide aerosols, then infected with airborne Streptococcus pyogenes, showed greater mortality rates than infected control animals, and Immunity against streptococci did not counteract the toxic effects of mananese oxide inhalation and streptitiscal infection.

This paper describes the use of an experimental airborne infectious disease model capable of predicting subtle changes in host defenses at concentrations below which there are any other overt toxicological effects. Expand
Correlation of effects of inhaled versus intratracheally injected males on susceptibility to respiratory infection in mice.
Similar effects on susceptibility to lung bacterial infection were seen whether chemicals were deposited in te lung by inhalation or by intratracheal injection. Expand
Botryosphaeria mamane sp. nov. associated with witches'-brooms on the endemic forest tree Sophora chrysophylla in Hawaii
Botryosphaeria mamane sp. nov. occurs on the leguminous forest species Sophora chrysophylla in Hawaii. Inoculation did not demonstrate a causal re- lationship, but the fungus is consistentlyExpand
Influence of ozone on pentobarbital pharmacokinetics in mice.
It appears possible that PEN-induced sleeping time might be increased due to an decrease in hepatic metabolism of PEN, despite previous studies indicating that acute exposure to ambient concentrations of ozone increases pentobarbital (PEN)- induced sleeping time in female mice. Expand
