The tardigrade class Mesotardigrada was erected on the basis of the description of Thermozodium esakii by Gilbert Rahm in 1937. In some characteristics, T. esakii is intermediate between members of the classes Eutardigrada and Heterotardigrada. The class Mesotardigrada is known only from Rahm's published drawings of T. esakii; no voucher specimens are(More)
Growth factors may play a role in the tissue remodeling of long-surviving allografts. The aim of these experiments was to investigate the pattern of expression of platelet-derived growth factor and epidermal growth factor receptors in relation to the immunohistopathology of rat cardiac allografts. Heart grafts were transplanted between LEW and F344 and(More)
Extreme environments sometimes support surprisingly high meiofaunal diversity. We sampled runoff from the acidic hot springs of Unzen, Japan. This is the type locality of Thermozodium esakii Rahm, 1937, the only tardigrade in the class Mesotardigrada, which remains contentious in the absence of corroboration or supporting specimens. Our sampling revealed at(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the phenotype of macrophages that infiltrate normal and transplanted rat tissues. The macrophage monoclonal antibodies ED1, ED2, ED3, 52-1D4, ER15, and OX43, together with antibodies against lymphocyte and class II MHC antigens, were used in an indirect immunofluorescence technique with sections of normal(More)
