To enrich the source of germplasm of cultivated olive (Olea europaea subsp. europaea L.), inter-subspecific hybrid plants have been produced by experimental crosses between several varieties of cultivated olive and Asian and African accessions of the wild related subspecies cuspidata. Germination of putative hybrid seeds was enhanced by using in vitro(More)
Adventitious shoot organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis are the basis for implementing new genetic variability and biotechnological approaches in woody species, particularly if mature tissues from valuable cultivars are used. To date, these technologies are only applied to few tree species due to the absence of efficient regeneration protocols. In(More)
Pigs are important reservoirs of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC). The entrance of these strains into the food chain implies a risk to consumers because of the severity of hemolytic uremic syndrome. This study reports the prevalence and characterization of STEC throughout the pork production chain. From 764 samples, 31 (4.05%) were stx positive(More)
We report a 10-year-old child with Robinow's syndrome who had a 2-week history of headaches and dizziness. On the day of admission, he developed a focal onset seizure with rapid secondary generalization. The seizures were intractable despite adequate doses of benzodiazepine, phenytoin, and phenobarbital, requiring a pentobarbital drip. Continuous(More)
