Isoprene is the most abundant non-methane bio-genic volatile organic compound (BVOC), but the processes governing secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation from isoprene oxidation are only beginning to become understood and selective quantification of the atmospheric particulate burden remains difficult. Organic aerosol above a tropical rainforest located(More)

Jack R JR. Stachybotrys chartarum, trichothecene mycotoxins, and damp building-related illness: new insights into a public health enigma. surface nucleolin serves as receptor for DNA nanoparticles composed of pegylated polylysine and DNA. Increased skeletal muscle tumor necrosis factor-alpha and impaired insulin signaling persist in obese women with(More)
Biopesticides can be effective in controlling their target pest. However, research regarding allergenicity and asthma development is limited. We compared the ability of fungal biopesticide Metarhizium anisopliae (MACA) and house dust mite (HDM) extracts to induce allergic responses in BALB/c mice. The extracts were administered by intratracheal aspiration(More)
Three groups of 200-gm rats were injected subcutaneously with neostigmine methylsulfate (1 mg/kg/day) for 7, 30, and 100 days. Electrophysiological changes were assessed in vitro, using microelectrode techniques to examine diaphragm muscles of treated and untreated animals. Miniature end-plate potential (MEPP) amplitude decreased in neostigmine-treated(More)
