OBJECTIVE Anisotropic conduction characteristics, which may be expressed as the ratio of conduction velocities in the longitudinal (Vlong) and transverse (Vtrans) fibre directions, have been shown to stabilise reentry and favour the induction of sustained, uniform ventricular tachycardia. The aim of this study was to investigate whether interventions(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Recent studies involving electrophysiology and immunolabelling indicate that short-term insulin treatment of hippocampal neurons in culture induces changes in glutamate receptor function, suggesting that this receptor system can be altered on a relatively rapid time scale during diabetic conditions. To investigate this hypothesis, we(More)
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis was used to characterize 11 insect cell lines, including six from lepidoptera (five species), one from diptera and four from coleoptera (one species: Leptinotarsa decemlineata). Whatever the order and even when comparing two closely related species from the same genus (Spodoptera), the DNA fingerprints are(More)
In order to isolate new pathogens (viruses, microsporidia, etc.) or to evaluate the efficiency of some pathogens (serovarieties and mutants of Bacillus thuringiensis, fungi, etc.) in the control of Colorado potato beetle, an economically important pest, we established four cell lines from tissues of this insect. One was initiated from embryonated egg(More)
