Mel 1a melatonin receptors belong to the super-family of guanine nucleotide-binding regulatory protein (G protein)-coupled receptors. So far, interest in Mel 1a receptor signaling has focused mainly on the modulation of the adenylyl cyclase pathway via pertussis toxin (PTX)-sensitive G proteins. To further investigate signaling of the human Mel 1a receptor,(More)
This document has been developed in an effort to provide guidance to the Florida citrus industry in making management decisions regarding Huanglongbing (HLB, citrus greening). Note that the information contained in this document reflects the best thinking of IFAS citrus researchers, based on current scientific evidence and observations under Florida(More)
Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has become a widely accepted standard procedure in the staging of patients with cutaneous melanoma and absence of clinical lymph node metastases, although there is no final proof that SLNB influences overall survival in these patients. This study investigated the accuracy of SLNB and the clinical outcome of patients after a(More)
The presence of beef cattle at three stocking rates had no impact on nutrient load (P and N) of surface runoff water when compared with pastures containing no cattle. Rationale Florida ranks third among states east of the Mississippi river and 12 th nationally in total number of beef cows (Florida Agricultural Statistics Service, 2002 Report). In contrast(More)
A membrane protein identified in cortical brain membranes and termed 'coupling cofactor', modulates G protein-coupling of the A1-adenosine receptor by reducing the catalytic efficiency of the receptor. Coupling cofactor traps the A1-adenosine receptor in the high affinity complex and, thus, is responsible for the resistance of high affinity A1-agonist(More)
Executive Summary The C-43 Basin Storage Reservoir is being constructed in northwestern Hendry County, Florida to reduce fresh water flushes into the Charlotte Harbor estuary and to provide water storage for agriculture and urban communities in Southwest Florida. This includes Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties. The reservoir is part of the(More)
