While a number of studies have identified host factors that influence endosymbiont titer, little is known concerning environmental influences on titer. Here we examined nutrient impact on maternally transmitted Wolbachia endosymbionts in Drosophila. We demonstrate that Drosophila reared on sucrose- and yeast-enriched diets exhibit increased and reduced(More)
Rat liver mitochondria have a specific Ca2+ release pathway which operates when NAD+ is hydrolysed to nicotinamide and ADPribose. NAD+ hydrolysis is Ca(2+)-dependent and inhibited by cyclosporine A (CSA). Mitochondrial Ca2+ release can be activated by the prooxidant t-butylhydroperoxide (tbh) or by gliotoxin (GT), a fungal metabolite of the(More)
