To study amyloid beta-protein (A beta) production and aggregation in vivo, we created two transgenic (Tg) mouse lines expressing the C-terminal 100 amino acids of human amyloid precursor protein (APP): Tg C100.V717F and Tg C100.WT. Western blot analysis showed that human APP-C100 and A beta were produced in brain and some peripheral tissues and A beta was(More)
Coral reefs, one of the world's most complex and vulnerable ecosystems, face an uncertain future in coming decades as they continue to respond to anthropogenic climate change, overfishing, pollution, and other human impacts [1, 2]. Traditionally, marine macroecology is based on presence/absence data from taxonomic checklists or geographic ranges, providing(More)
Sponge-associated bacteria play a critical role in sponge biology, metabolism and ecology, but how they interact with their host sponges and the role of these interactions are poorly understood. This study investigated the role of the interaction between the sponge Aplysilla rosea and its associated actinobacterium, Streptomyces ACT-52A, in modifying sponge(More)
The influence of sea-cage aquaculture on wildfish assemblages has received little attention outside of Europe. Sea-cage aquaculture of finfish is a major focus in South Australia, and while the main species farmed is southern bluefin tuna (Thunnus maccoyii), there is also an important yellowtail kingfish (Seriola lalandi) industry. Yellowtail kingfish(More)

The damped orientational model of polymer local main-chain motion is generalized to include chain-chain interactions using multiple scattering theory in the mean field approximation and an optical potential. The resulting dynamical equation, which is in the form of a complex damped diffusion equation, still permits analytic solutions for the bond(More)
Interleukin-6 (IL-6) stimulates growth and immunoglobulin (lg) secretion in Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-infected B cells. In this study, we demonstrate that B-cell activation by IL-6 is associated with an initial induction of c-myc, a gene believed to act as a competence factor for increased RNA transcription and DNA replication, and by increases in DNA, RNA,(More)
