Peyronie's disease is characterized histologically by excessive collagen deposition in the lesion. We examined the collagen types in Peyronie's disease plaque tissues compared to unaffected tissues from the same patient, other control tissues, and Dupuytren's contracture. Gel electrophoresis of pepsin-solubilized collagen demonstrated the presence of type I(More)
Locked pectoral spines of the Channel Catfish Ictalurus punctatus more than double the fish's width and complicate ingestion by gape-limited predators. The spine mates with the pectoral girdle, a robust structure that anchors the spine. This study demonstrates that both spine and girdle exhibit negative allometric growth and that pectoral spines and girdles(More)
Grape pomace is a potential source of natural antioxidant and antimicrobial agents. Phenolic compounds, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties of pomace extracts from four Virginia-grown grape varieties were investigated. White grape pomaces had higher (P < 0.05) solvent extraction yield than red varieties. Concentrations of total phenolic (TPC), total(More)
