Effects of road salts on the composition of seasonal pond communities: can the use of road salts enhance mosquito recruitment?
Road deicing agents can enter nearby wetlands and alter the composition of aquatic communities by directly eliminating salt-intolerant species and modifying ecological interactions between tolerantExpand
RNA-seq analysis of gene expression profiles in isolated stria vascularis from wild-type and Alport mice reveals key pathways underling Alport strial pathogenesis
Previous work demonstrates that the hearing loss in Alport mice is caused by defects in the stria vascularis. As the animals age, progressive thickening of strial capillary basement membranes (SCBMs)Expand
Impact of Sensory and Motor Defects on Oral Function in an Animal Model
Objective To evaluate the combined functional impact on swallowing of tongue sensory and motor loss using a rat model. Study Design Rats underwent selective neurectomies with transection of the motorExpand
Minimally Invasive Approach to the Lingual and Hypoglossal Nerves in the Adult Rat
ABSTRACT Surgical manipulation of the sensory and motor nerves of the rat tongue is often employed in studies evaluating the oral cavity functions of mastication and deglutition. A noninvasive,Expand
Analysis of Absorbable Hemostatic Packing Compared to Physiologic Hemostasis in Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery With or Without Septoplasty
Background There currently are no randomized studies examining if absorbable hemostatic packing (AHP) results in better objective and subjective outcomes than physiologic healing in sinus surgeryExpand
Rapid Vascular Responses to Anthrax Lethal Toxin in Mice Containing a Segment of Chromosome 11 from the CAST/Ei Strain on a C57BL/6 Genetic Background
Host allelic variation controls the response to B. anthracis and the disease course of anthrax. Mouse strains with macrophages that are responsive to anthrax lethal toxin (LT) show resistance toExpand
