Micro-organisms in filarial larvae (Nematoda).
Geneious! Simplified genome skimming methods for phylogenetic systematic studies: A case study in Oreocarya (Boraginaceae)1
Genome skimming represents a much-improved primary data collection over PCR+Sanger sequencing when chloroplast DNA (cpDNA), nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA), and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are the target sequences.
Abnormally elevated VTG concentrations in flounder (Platichthys flesus) from the Mersey estuary (UK)--a continuing problem.
Molecular and cellular pathology in environmental impact assessment
The role of glutathione in L-2-chloropropionic acid induced cerebellar granule cell necrosis in the rat
It is shown that a marked and sustained reduction in cerebellar GSH content by L-CPA may leave granule cells vulnerable to cytotoxic free radical damage leading to cell death, possibly mediated through excitatory amino acids, as well as supplementing GSH concentrations by administration of the isopropyl ester of glutathione (ip-GSH) at 1 g/kg, s.c.
Cat's Eyes and Popcorn Flowers: Phylogenetic Systematics of the Genus Cryptantha s. l. (Boraginaceae)
The hypothesis of repeated, unidirectional dispersal events, from North to South America, is generally supported and the multiple, derived evolution of perenniality, reduction in nutlet number, nutlet heteromorphism, smooth nutlet sculpturing, heterostyly, and cleistogamy are supported.
Ultrastructure of Heterocolpate Pollen in Cryptantha (Boraginaceae)
The described heterocolpate pollen in the Boraginaceae may represent a major apomorphy for the tribes Eritricheae and Cynoglosseae and possibly other taxa, however, further comparative studies within these groups are needed to assess definitively the extent of this putative apoorphy.
Phylogenetic Implications of Pollen Ultrastructure in the Oldfieldioideae (Euphorbiaceae)
The pollen structure of members of Euphorbiaceae subfamilies Oldfieldioideae and Phyllanthoideae was studied using scanning and transmission electron microscopy in order to assess taxonomic…
