Recently we demonstrated a strong induction of activin expression after skin injury, suggesting a function of this transforming growth factor-beta family member in wound repair. To test this possibility, we generated transgenic mice that overexpress the activin betaA chain in the epidermis under the control of a keratin 14 promoter. The transgenic mice were(More)
Responses in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) juveniles (fry) fed diets containing genetically modified maize (Bt-maize, MON810) expressing Cry1Ab protein from first-feeding were investigated during a 99-day feeding trial. Four experimental diets were made; each diet contained ∼20% maize, either Bt-maize or its near-isogenic maternal line (non-GM maize).(More)
Despite a long history of rearing Atlantic salmon in hatcheries in Norway, knowledge of molecular and physiological aspects of juvenile development is still limited. To facilitate introduction of alternative feed ingredients and feed additives during early phases, increased knowledge regarding the ontogeny of the digestive apparatus in salmon is needed. In(More)
A cross-sectional study on the correlates of elderly disability was conducted in Taiwan. A total of 400 subjects was randomly selected according to Barthel Index scores from among 2600 subjects, which was a sample of a previous community-based health survey of elderly aged 65 or over. After comprehensive interviews and examinations of the subjects,(More)
The antitumour activity of peritoneal macrophages, added to tumour inocula (Winn test), was determined. Macrophages harvested from mice immunised with tumour, or from tumour-bearing mice, suppressed or inhibited tumour growth when in direct contact with tumour cells. Incubation of macrophages exhibiting antitumour activity with tumour cells yielded(More)
Thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal M phi of mice were treated with calcium ionophore A23187 prior to incubation with tumor cells. Supernatants prepared from the incubation mixtures were assayed for their effects on incorporation of 3H-thymidine into tumor cells. Significant inhibition of incorporation was observed in most instances. Ingestion of(More)
