Previous studies suggest that olfactory cues from damaged and fermented fruits play important roles in resource recognition of polyphagous spotted wing Drosophila flies (SWD), Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura) (Diptera: Drosophilidae). They are attracted to fermented sweet materials, such as decomposing fruits but also wines and vinegars, and to ubiquitous(More)
Angiotensin II (AII) has been implicated as an important factor in the pathophysiology of heart diseases. Following the recent identification of two subtypes of the AII receptor in cardiac tissue of animals, we investigated the possible occurrence of these, or similar, subtypes in human atrial tissue. In right-atrial tissue from patients undergoing heart(More)
This study examines the effects of angiotensin II on hypertrophy and proliferation of aortic smooth muscle cells from spontaneously hypertensive and Wistar-Kyoto rats and the receptor subtypes mediating these effects. In quiescent confluent cells, angiotensin II induced a dose-dependent increase in thymidine and leucine incorporation without stimulating(More)
A method is described which allows a very efficient determination of the modified nucleosides of tRNA. The technique involves enzymatic degradation of the tRNA to nucleosides at pH 7.6 and their separation by two-dimensional thin-layer chromatography on cellulose-coated aluminum foils. Based on the analysis of two mammalian tRNAs it is shown that the(More)
In psychopharmacological tests in rats and mice, 4-(5-chloro-benzofuranyl-2)-1-methylpiperidine HC1 (CGP 4718 A) was found to exert behavioral effects typical of both monoamine oxidase (MAO)-A and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) uptake inhibitors (reserpine antagonism, L-5-HTP potentiation, antiaggressive activity in isolated mice). The potential antidepressant(More)
