The introduction of tau imaging agents such as 18F-THK523 offers new hope for the in vivo assessment of tau deposition in tauopathies such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), where preliminary 18F-THK523-PET studies have demonstrated significantly higher cortical retention of 18F-THK523 in AD compared to age-matched healthy individuals. In addition to AD, tau(More)
In the first inbred generation (I1) of cv. Black 4495 a dark green, slowly growing mutant (coded ds) was found, whereas the I1 of its self-compatible dihaploid, B16, comprised this ds mutant and in addition the mutants virescens (v) and yellow margin (ym). The occurrence of ds and ym might trace back to diploid S. phureja, one of the ancestors of Black(More)
The results of extensive crosses between the non-tuberous species Solanum brevidens and S. etuberosum on the one hand and ten tuber-bearing Solanum species on the other are presented. Three crosses gave rise to viable progeny. Two progenies consisted of diploid plants only of the strictly self-incompatible species of the mother parent. One cross, viz. S.(More)
14 Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera, is an abundant environmental bacterium that can 15 efficiently colonize the intestinal tract and trigger severe diarrheal illness. Motility, and the 16 production of colonization factors and cholera toxin, are fundamental for the establishment of 17 disease. In the aquatic environment, V. cholerae persists(More)
