BACKGROUND The recently described Type VI Secretion System (T6SS) represents a new paradigm of protein secretion in bacteria. A number of bioinformatic studies have been conducted to identify T6SS gene clusters in the available bacterial genome sequences. According to these studies, Salmonella harbors a unique T6SS encoded in the Salmonella Pathogenicity(More)
Drugs of abuse, such as amphetamine (AMPH), share the ability to activate the mesolimbic dopamine (DA) system. The behavioral effects of AMPH are largely mediated by increased DA neurotransmission in the nucleus accumbens. However, there is evidence that serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine - 5-HT) systems may regulate forebrain DA function. We examined the role(More)
The present study aimed at measuring seropositivities for infection by Ascaris suum and Toxocara canis using the excretory/secretory (E/S) antigens from Ascaris suum (AES) and Toxocara canis (TES) within an indigenous population. In addition, quantification of cytokine expressions in peripheral blood cells was determined. A total of 50 Warao indigenous were(More)
The humoral and cellular responses against excretory/secretory proteins and soluble extracts of Giardia intestinalis were evaluated in the course of experimental G. intestinalis infection in BALB/c mice. Production of IgG1, IgG2a, IgA, and IgE antibodies against excreted/secreted proteins and soluble extract was detected after infection by G. intestinalis.(More)
Some of the behavioral effects of d-amphetamine (d-AMPH) are mediated by an increase in dopamine neurotransmission in the nucleus accumbens. However, there is evidence that gamma-amino-butyric-acid-B (GABA-B) receptors are involved in some behavioral effects of D-AMPH and cocaine. Here, we examined the effects of baclofen on the discriminative stimulus(More)
In this paper we present a LST product obtained from Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) data. The product has been validated with in situ measurements carried out in the framework of the CarboEurope-Flex-Sentinel-2 (CEFLES2) campaign. In addition the paper present a comparison between the proposed product and the LST retrieved from different(More)
