Cryptic Lineages of the Genus Escherichia
ABSTRACT Extended multilocus sequence typing (MLST) analysis of atypical Escherichia isolates was used to identify five novel phylogenetic clades (CI to CV) among isolates from environmental, human,Expand

Fecal collection, ambient preservation, and DNA extraction for PCR amplification of bacterial and human markers from human feces.
Feces contain intestinal bacteria and exfoliated epithelial cells that may provide useful information concerning gastrointestinal tract health. Intestinal bacteria that synthesize or metabolizeExpand

Enumeration of waterborne Escherichia coli with petrifilm plates: comparison to standard methods.
Escherichia coli is often monitored in environmental waters as an indicator of the possible presence of human pathogens associated with feces. Petrifilm E. coli/coliform count plates (3M,Expand

Spawning in the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha): activation by internal or external application of serotonin.
The zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha, was recently introduced accidentally into the Great Lakes and, due in part to its prodigious reproductive capacity, is spreading rapidly in temperate freshExpand

Physiological Aspects of Zebra Mussel Reproduction: Maturation, Spawning, and Fertilization
SYNOPSIS. The prolific reproductive capabilities of the zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha , have facilitated the rapid spread and high densities of this biofouling organism since its accidentalExpand

Insulin attenuates vasopressin-induced calcium transients and a voltage-dependent calcium response in rat vascular smooth muscle cells.
Insulin attenuates the contractile responses of vascular smooth muscle (VSM) to various agonists. Insulinopenic and insulin-resistant rats lack this normal attenuation of vascular contractileExpand

Inhibition of Rho protein stimulates iNOS expression in rat vascular smooth muscle cells.
Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) is upregulated in arterial injury and plays a role in regulating VSMC proliferation and restenosis. InflammatoryExpand

Authentication of Canned Tuna and Bonito by Sequence and Restriction Site Analysis of Polymerase Chain Reaction Products of Mitochondrial DNA
Methods of authenticating already canned fish were developed, using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) followed by sequencing and restriction site analysis. The canning process degrades DNA to fewerExpand

Using zebra mussels to monitor Escherichia coli in environmental waters.
Use of the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) as an indicator of previously elevated bacteria concentrations in a watershed was examined. The ability of the zebra mussel to accumulate and purgeExpand
