Ischemia-induced cerebral infarction is more severe in older animals as compared to younger animals, and is associated with reduced availability of insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1. This study determined the effect of post-stroke IGF-1 treatment, and used microRNA profiling to identify mechanisms underlying IGF-1's neuroprotective actions. Post-stroke ICV(More)
Here we report an improved, reproducible, simple, rapid, and cost-effective PCR-based DNA synthesis method using short (25-40 bp) overlapping oligodeoxyribonucleotides (oligos). The method involves two steps; (1) assembly of multiple/overlapping oligos by PCR to generate the template DNA and (2) amplification of the template DNA sequence with the two(More)
Toxolasma texasensis acclimated to an artificial pondwater (PW) maintained a concentration of SO4 in the blood of about 1-2 mmol l(-1) . The anion transport inhibitor DIDS (5,5'-diisothiocyanatostilbene 2, 2'-disulfonic acid) reduced the uptake of 35SO4 from the bathing medium by 54%. The clearance of polyethylene glycol (PEG) injected into the blood of T.(More)
Executive Summary Communities across the United States are at-risk due to environmental change. Decision-makers must determine how best to manage community vulnerability in an environment where future environmental change is uncertain. Models project continued climate change, however, the projections have uncertainty associated with them that must be(More)
Foam fractionation is a simple, inexpensive method for separating and purifying proteins. Typically, a dilute bromelain solution with a pH ranging from 2.0 to 7.0 foams very well when bubbles are introduced into a foam fractionation column. It was observed, however, that the dilute enzyme solution only foamed between approximately pH 2.0 and 3.0 when the(More)
