Previous studies from our laboratory have shown that fulminant hepatitis caused by the mouse hepatitis virus, MHV-3, is dependent on production of the novel immune coagulant fgl2/fibroleukin. In this study, we investigate the role of IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha in the induction of fgl2 expression and fgl2-dependent hepatic apoptosis. Infusion of IFN-gamma in(More)
A simple tree swaying model, valid for windstorm conditions, has been developed for the purpose of simulating the effect of strong wind on the vulnerability of heterogeneous forest canopies. In this model the tree is represented as a flexible cantilever beam whose motion, induced by turbulent winds, is solved through a modal analysis. The geometric(More)
Analyses of lipid extracts from rabbit meat were carried out by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/mS) using both electron and chemical ionisation. Ten rabbit carcasses were randomly acquired on the market, from different farms; for each of them muscular tissues from hindleg and breast were analysed. The lipid fractions were extracted, separated and(More)
