Bacillus thuringiensis as a specific, safe, and effective tool for insect pest control.
Bacillus thuringiensis was originally considered a risk for silkworm rearing but it has become the heart of microbial insect control and the development of Bt transgenic plants. Expand
Adverse events and discomfort during magnetic resonance imaging in cochlear implant recipients.
Even with protective head bandages, 1.5-T MRI in patients with CIs led to a variety of adverse events, including discomfort or pain and displacement of the internal magnet, and these patients should be carefully monitored to decrease the likelihood of such adverse effects. Expand
Subsidence after anterior lumbar interbody fusion using paired stand-alone rectangular cages
It is demonstrated that cage subsidence is an expected occurrence after ALIF using stand-alone rectangular cages and there was no statistical correlation between the recurrence of symptoms and radiographic fusion in this study. Expand
Analysis of Genes Expression of Spodoptera exigua Larvae upon AcMNPV Infection
Using RNA-seq, groups of immune-regulated and juvenile hormone-regulated genes that are suppressed by infection with active AcMNPV are identified and will provide the tools needed to enhance the utility of the virus as an effective protein expression system and as an insecticide. Expand

It is shown that low levels of VIP and ACh produced significant mucus secretion in human glands via strong synergistic interactions; synergy was lost in glands of CF patients. Expand
Mucus secretion by single tracheal submucosal glands from normal and cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator knockout mice
A novel defect in local regulation of glands lacking CFTR which may also compromise airway defence in CF patients is revealed. Expand

Interestingly, 9 of 10 putative ORFs had high level of similarities with catalytic domain of protein tyrosine phosphatase and ORF2807 showed similarity with EP1-like proteins of C. congregata polydnavirus. Expand
Mutations of acetylcholinesterase1 contribute to prothiofos-resistance in Plutella xylostella (L.).
In vitro functional expression of AChEs in Sf9 cells revealed that only resistant AChE1 is less inhibited with paraoxon, suggesting that resistant A cholinesterase1 is responsible for prothiofos-resistance. Expand
Substance P stimulates CFTR-dependent fluid secretion by mouse tracheal submucosal glands
Results indicate that SP mediates local responses to capsaicinoids through a mechanism involving coordinated activation of CFTR and K+ channels, and loss of this local regulation in CF may contribute to reduced innate defenses in CF airways. Expand
Interleukin-1β and Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Induce MUC5AC Overexpression through a Mechanism Involving ERK/p38 Mitogen-activated Protein Kinases-MSK1-CREB Activation in Human Airway Epithelial Cells*
Mucin hypersecretion is commonly observed in many inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract. MUC5AC is generally recognized to be a major airway mucin because MUC5AC is highly expressed in theExpand
