We report here on the successful painting of a specific plant chromosome within its own genome. Isochromosomes for the long arm of chromosome 5 of the wheat B genome (5BL) were microdissected from first meiotic metaphase spreads of a monoisosomic 5BL line of the common wheat Triticum aestivum cv. Chinese Spring. The dissected isochromosomes were amplified(More)
Correlations in behavioural traits across time, situation and ecological context (i.e. 'behavioural syndromes' or 'personality') have been documented for a variety of behaviours, and in diverse taxa.

Fever of unknown origin is a diagnostic challenge. Among its causes are of Large Caliber Vessels Vasculitis (LCVV), including Takayasu arteritis (TA) and giant cell arteritis (GCA). Early diagnosis is vital to prevent fibrosis of the vessel wall, and consequently, stenoses, aneurysms or occlusions. Imaging techniques can be of great help in recent years,(More)
The term retroperitoneal fibrosis (Ormond’s disease) encompasses a group of diseases characterized by fibrosis and inflammation of the tissue in the retroperitoneal space, which may surround abdominal and pelvic structures including the aorta, iliac arteries, and ureters. The origin is idiopathic in about 70% of the cases. There is controversy regarding the(More)
