A series of experiments to define the lethal potency (LD50) and electrophysiological properties of the venom of the Australian Rough-scaled Snake (Tropidechis carinatus) are described. Crude pooled venom contains at least five fractions which were separated using liquid chromatography and high pressure liquid chromatography techniques (Fractions I-V). LD50(More)
MTBE-Gehalt bei 15% (1,3% Benzol, 27% Aromaten). Der erste Kraftstoff mit einem nennenswerten MTBE-Anteil (ca. 7% nach Untersuchungen des Ministeriums für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Raumordnung des Landes Brandenburg, 1996) auf dem deutschen Markt ist seit 1995 das „Super plus“ mit einem Benzolgehalt von <1% und max. 30% Aromaten. Außer in den USA und(More)
1 Some effects of the sea-anemone toxin ATX-II on mammalian nerve-muscle preparations have been described. 2 When ATX-II (10(-8)-10(-6) M) was applied to rat hemidiaphragm preparations, both directly and indirectly generated twitch responses were potentiated and prolonged. At the same time the resting tension of the preparations increased. 3 The increase in(More)
Some effects of the sea anemone toxin, ATX-II, on vertebrate skeletal muscle have been described. At a concentration of 1 X 10(-7)-1 X 10(-6)M, ATX-II caused a sodium-dependent depolarization of the muscle fibres of the rat soleus and extensor digitorum longus, of the mouse soleus and extensor digitorum longus and of the chicken posterior latissimus dorsi.(More)
Soleus and extensor digitorum longus muscles were isolated from rats. The muscles were exposed to ATX-II, a toxin isolated from extracts of the sea-anemone Anemonia sulcata . The toxin caused a dose-dependent increase in the frequency of miniature endplate potentials in both types of muscle. The increase in frequency could be reversed by the application of(More)
Electrophysiological effects of a polypeptide toxin isolated from the sea anemone Bolocera tuediae (BTTX II) on isolated fast and slow rat skeletal muscle and on cultured rat myotubes are described in this paper. Nanomolar concentrations of BTTX II cause a concentration-dependent depolarization. This effect is prevented by the presence of tetrodotoxin.(More)
Aviation fuels are well characterised regarding their physical and chemical properties. Health effects of fuel vapours and of liquid fuel are described after occupational exposure and in animal studies. Exposure of the general population (airport visitors and people living in the vicinity of airports) may occur during fuel supply particularly in warm(More)
For evaluation of the carcinogenic potency of an environmental chemical or a mixture of chemicals, epidemiological or workplace studies, animal studies, and in vitro tests are the three major strategies used. Asbestos fibers and 1,2-dichloroethane are chosen as examples. They illustrate that the strategies may enable the implementation of measures by health(More)
