The Bernese authorities first regulated the movement of animals across the French border in the 18th century due to outbreaks of epidemics.

Our aim was to determine whether fucosylation of glycoproteins begins in the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) of active thyrotrophs. This would contrast with most cells studied, in which fucosylation generally is associated with the Golgi apparatus. Mouse thyrotropic tumor tissue was incubated with [35S]methionine for 2, 5, 7, 10, 30, and 90 minutes. TSH(More)
