Distribution and characterization of integrons in Escherichia coli strains of animal and human origin.
One hundred and twenty clinical and commensal Escherichia coli strains isolated in Switzerland from humans and from companion and farm animals were analysed for the prevalence of integrons of classesExpand

PAT protein mRNA expression in primary rat hepatocytes: Effects of exposure to fatty acids.
Excess energy is stored as neutral lipids in lipid droplets (LDs) whose surface is coated by PAT proteins, each playing a distinct cellular function. The adipocyte differentiation-related proteinExpand

Comparative genomic hybridization and physiological characterization of environmental isolates indicate that significant (eco-)physiological properties are highly conserved in the species Escherichia
Escherichia coli, the common inhabitant of the mammalian intestine, exhibits considerable intraspecies genomic variation, which has been suggested to reflect adaptation to different ecologicalExpand

Evidence of horizontal gene transfer between human and animal commensal Escherichia coli strains identified by microarray.
Bacteria exchange genetic material by horizontal gene transfer (HGT). To evaluate the impact of HGT on Escherichia coli genome plasticity, 19 commensal strains collected from the intestinal floras ofExpand

Mitigating Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans in Europe
The infectious chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) has been responsible for severe population declines of salamander populations in Europe. Serious population declines and loss ofExpand

Adaptive management of species recovery programs: A real-world application for an endangered amphibian
We used an adaptive approach to decide whether to use captive breeding, headstarting of tadpoles or direct translocation of eggs, with the aim of establishing a new population while minimizing the impact of harvesting. Expand

Validation and cost-effectiveness of an alternative method to quantify Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis infection in amphibian samples using real-time PCR
Abstract The chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) is considered one of the main causes of amphibian declines worldwide. Detection of Bd infection relies on both histological andExpand

Iodothyronines as Lipid-lowering Agents
Abstract It is a common notion that thyroid status is linked to energy expenditure and body weight, and thyroid hormones (THs) have always deserved attention for their potential use asExpand
Use of an in vitro model of hepatic steatosis for studying the anti-oxidant and antisteatotic effects of fucoidan polysaccharides
Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is characterised by fat accumulation in hepatocytes in the form of triacyglycerols (TAGs) within cytosolic lipid droplets. Fucoidans (FUs) are biologicallyExpand
