The reconstituted pea chloroplastic outer envelope protein of 16 kDa (OEP16) forms a slightly cation-selective, high-conductance channel with a conductance of Lambda = 1,2 nS (in 1 M KCl). The open probability of OEP16 channel is highest at 0 mV (Popen = 0.8), decreasing exponentially with higher potentials. Transport studies using reconstituted recombinant(More)
Recent increases in wild boar populations in central Europe necessitated an evaluation of the current reproductive performance of this species. During a 2-year study, samples of ovaries and uteri were taken from wild boars from areas in the (northern) state of Lower Saxony and the (more southern) Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, in which wild boar have been(More)
The pea chloroplastic outer envelope protein OEP24 can function as a general solute channel. OEP24 is present in chloroplasts, etioplasts, and non-green root plastids. The heterologously expressed protein forms a voltage-dependent, high-conductance (Lambda = 1.3 nS in 1 M KCl), and slightly cation-selective ion channel in reconstituted proteoliposomes. The(More)
The chloroplast outer envelope protein OEP16 forms a cation-selective high conductance channel with permeability to amines and amino acids. The region of OEP16 directly involved in channel formation has been identified by electrophysiological analysis of a selection of reconstituted OEP16 mutants. Because analysis of these mutants depended on the use of(More)
The population density of wild boar in Lower Saxony, Germany has increased dramatically over the last decade. Today the high population causes extensive damages to crops and influences the occurrence and distribution of the Classical Swine Fever disease (CSF). Consequently the reduction of population density by hunting wild boar in zones of hog cholera is(More)
By means of about fifty skulls of dominating female animals of all age groups the formation and topgraphy of the Cavum nasi and its Sinus paranasales at the roe-deer are investigated and described by pouring out the Sinus paranasales about their physiological entrances with Technovit 7143. Amongst numerous findings the main results are in the following: 1.(More)
Invasive serotype 2 (cps2+) strains of Streptococcus suis cause meningitis in pigs and humans. Four case reports of S. suis meningitis in hunters suggest transmission of S. suis through the butchering of wild boars. Therefore, the objective of this study was to investigate the prevalence of potentially human-pathogenic S. suis strains in wild boars. S. suis(More)
Zwerchfell- und Bauchmuskulaturproben von Reh-, Rot- und Muffelwild aus niedersächsischen Revieren wurden mit Hilfe der tryptischen Verdauungsmethode auf Sarkosporidien untersucht. Die Sarkosporidienarten des Rehwildes (S. gracilis, S. capreolicanis, Sarcocystis sp.) wurden anhand der Zystenwandstruktur lichtmikroskopisch differenziert. Bei 87,3 % der(More)
Aim of the study was to examine the prevalence and regional distribution of Echinococcus multilocularis and other metacestodes and cestodes in muskrats in Lower Saxony, Germany. A total of 991 muskrats with similar numbers from all districts of the country were examined between January and December 1995. E. multilocularis metacestodes were found in 4.1% of(More)
