The two techniques of flow cytometry analysis (FCM) and immunohistochemical localisation of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdUrd) incorporation after in vivo administration, were combined to study proliferation in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck region. Care was taken in this study to ensure that similar material was processed using both techniques such(More)
Trehalose is a disaccharide sugar that is now considered to be widely distributed among higher plants. Trehalose has been attributed a number of roles, including control of basic plant processes, such as photosynthesis, and conferring tolerance to abiotic stresses, such as desiccation and high salinity. Trehalose is also a common storage sugar used by(More)
UNLABELLED Nitrogen regulation in Escherichia coli is a model system for gene regulation in bacteria. Growth on glutamine as a sole nitrogen source is assumed to be nitrogen limiting, inferred from slow growth and strong NtrB/NtrC-dependent gene activation. However, we show that under these conditions, the intracellular glutamine concentration is not(More)
The proliferative potential of human solid tumours, in vivo, was investigated using bromodeoxyuridine (BrdUrd) incorporation and flow cytometry (FCM). Patients with solid tumours from a variety of sites were injected with 500 mg BrdUrd, intravenously, several hours prior to biopsy or surgical excision. The labelling index (LI), duration of S-phase (Ts) and(More)
Techniques were described for recording trigeminal evoked potentials in humans in response to maxillary gum stimulation. Variations in the responses as a function of stimulating and recording electrode position and stimulus intensity were presented. A standard methodology was proposed in order to obtain the characteristic response repeatedly. The(More)
Trigeminal evoked potentials were recorded before and 6 weeks after a percutaneous retrogasserian glycerol rhizotomy was performed in 22 patients with tic douloureux. The latency of the trigeminal evoked potential (TEP) N20 peak and the sensory threshold to electrical stimulation of the maxillary gum were measured in each patient. The N20 latency(More)
It is thought that during latent infection, Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli are retained within granulomas in a low-oxygen environment. The dormancy survival (Dos) regulon, regulated by the response regulator DosR, appears to be essential for hypoxic survival in M. tuberculosis, but it is not known how the regulon promotes survival. Here we report that(More)
BACKGROUND Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain GV3101 (pMP90) is widely used in transient gene expression assays, including assays to study pathogen effectors and plant disease resistance mechanisms. However, inoculation of A. tumefaciens GV3101 into Nicotiana tabacum (tobacco) leaves prior to infiltration with pathogenic and non-host strains of Pseudomonas(More)
