'Candidatus Rhabdochlamydia porcellionis', an intracellular bacterium from the hepatopancreas of the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber (Crustacea: Isopoda).
Intracellular bacteria were observed in the hepatopancreas of the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and electron microscopic observations were used toExpand
Rickettsia hoogstraalii sp. nov., isolated from hard- and soft-bodied ticks.
A novel spotted fever group Rickettsia was found in Haemaphysalis sulcata ticks collected from sheep and goats in Croatia in 2006. At the same time, a genetically identical organism was co-isolatedExpand
“Candidatus Bacilloplasma,” a Novel Lineage of Mollicutes Associated with the Hindgut Wall of the Terrestrial Isopod Porcellio scaber (Crustacea: Isopoda)
ABSTRACT Pointed, rod-shaped bacteria colonizing the cuticular surface of the hindgut of the terrestrial isopod crustacean Porcellio scaber (Crustacea: Isopoda) were investigated by comparative 16SExpand
Quantitative Morphology of Epithelial Folds.
The shape of spatially modulated epithelial morphologies such as villi and crypts is usually associated with the epithelium-stroma area mismatch leading to buckling. We propose an alternativeExpand
Ontogenetic Development of Porcellio scaber: Staging Based on Microscopic Anatomy
Abstract Arthropods exhibit a vast variety of morphological forms. Developmental studies on diverse arthropod groups will help clarify how these forms evolved during arthropod evolution. TheExpand
Bacterial community structure analyses to assess pollution of water and sediments in the Lake Shkodra/Skadar, Balkan Peninsula.
GOAL, SCOPE AND BACKGROUND Lake Skadar is the largest lake of the Balkan Peninsula, located along the Montenegro-Albanian border. The unique features of the lake and wide range of endemic, and rareExpand
Life cycle of Rickettsia slovaca in L929 cell line studied by quantitative real-time PCR and transmission electron microscopy.
Rickettsia slovaca, a member of spotted fever rickettsiae, is an agent of a mild human disease known as Tibola or Debonel. Using quantitative real-time PCR we identified the highest point ofExpand
Eco-morphological studies on pleopodal lungs and cuticle in Armadillidium species (Crustacea, Isopoda, Oniscidea).
Terrestrial isopods (Crustacea, Isopoda, Oniscidea) have adapted to land life by diverse morphological, physiological and behavioral changes. Woodlice species exhibit a large variety in this respect,Expand
Imaging of intracellular spherical lamellar structures and tissue gross morphology by a focused ion beam/scanning electron microscope (FIB/SEM).
We report the use of a focused ion beam/scanning electron microscope (FIB/SEM) for simultaneous investigation of digestive gland epithelium gross morphology and ultrastructure of multilamellarExpand
Temporal and spatial expression of ostreolysin during development of the oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus).
In the mushrooms Pleurotus ostreatus and Agrocybe aegerita, expression of the hemolytic proteins ostreolysin and aegerolysin, which belong to the aegerolysin family, has been shown to be initiatedExpand
