The aim of this study was to determine the prostaglandins (PGs) production and ovarian function in gilts after intrauterine infusions of 10(6) and 10(9) colony-forming units (cfu)/ml of Escherichia coli (E. coli). In Experiments 1 and 2, 30 ml of saline or 30 ml of E. coli suspension containing 10(6) or 10(9)cfu/ml, were infused once into each uterine horn(More)
Die Anwendung herkömmlicher CT-/MRT-unterstützter Navigationsverfahren sind bei Weichteileingriffen im Kopf-Hals-Bereich aufgrund des Gewebeshifts unzureichend. Ferner lassen sich hierbei Veränderungen, die sich im Rahmen invasiver Maßnahmen ergeben, nicht darstellen. Ein Navigationssystem für die Sonographie im Weichteilbereich unter Verwendung eines(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of intrauterine Escherichia coli infusion on the patterns of plasma LH, prolactin, progesterone, androstenedione, testosterone, oestrone, oestradiol-17beta, cortisol and 13,14-dihydro-15-keto-prostaglandin F2alpha (PGFM) in gilts during the oestrous cycle. On day 4 of the oestrous cycle (day 0), 25 mL of(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of three active substances, diflufenican, mesosulfuron-methyl and iodosulfuron-methyl-sodium, applied in combination, on soil microbial counts, the structure of soil microbial communities, activity of soil enzymes and their resistance to the tested product, the biochemical indicator of soil fertility, and(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate zinc's influence on the resistance of organotrophic bacteria, actinomyces, fungi, dehydrogenases, catalase and urease. The experiment was conducted in a greenhouse of the University of Warmia and Mazury (UWM) in Olsztyn, Poland. Plastic pots were filled with 3 kg of sandy loam with pHKCl - 7.0 each. The experimental(More)
An experiment has been performed to determine the activity of arylsulphatase in soil submitted to pressure of four polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: naphthalene, phenanthrene, anthracene, and pyrene, in the amount of: 0, 1,000, 2,000, and 4,000 mg kg-1 dm of soil. Soil samples were also applied some organic substances, such as: cellulose, sucrose, and(More)
The use of fungicides in crop protection still effectively eliminates fungal pathogens of plants. However, fungicides may dissipate to various elements of the environment and cause irreversible changes. Considering this problem, the aim of the presented study was to evaluate changes in soil biological activity in response to contamination with azoxystrobin.(More)
Urease activity was determined in soil contaminated with four polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs): naphthalene, phenanthrene, anthracene, and pyrene in the amount of 0, 1,000, 2,000, and 4,000 mg·kg DM soil. Organic materials – cellulose, sucrose, and compost – were applied to the samples in the amount of 0 and 9 g·kg DM soil. The experiment was carried(More)
Next-generation herbicides are relatively safe when used properly, but the recommended rates are relatively low, which can lead to overdosing. This study evaluated the responses of soil-dwelling microorganisms and soil enzymes to contamination with the Boreal 58 WG herbicide. The analyzed product contains active ingredients flufenacet and isoxaflutole. All(More)
Heavy metals when present in amounts equal to the geochemical background do not interfere with the soil metabolism, which is associated with the growth and development of soil microorganisms as well as the processes of synthesis and re-synthesis, governed by intraand extracellular enzymes. In the said concentrations, heavy metals do not cause undesirable(More)
