The gene coding for the Bacillus subtilis extracellular neutral protease was isolated from strain BGSC 1A341, an overproducer carrying the nprR2 region, and from strain 168, a normal producer with the nprR1 sequence. The sequence of about 600 nucleotides upstream from the start codon of the protease gene was determined for both strains. The two regions are(More)
An established anterior cruciate ligament deficiency-induced articular cartilage degeneration was used to evaluate the effects of intrasynovial injection of hyaluronic acid upon cartilage destruction. In this study, proteoglycan solubility under associative and dissociative conditions was compared in two treatment protocols at intervals of seven, 13, and 17(More)
Overexpression of cyclin D1, the regulatory subunit of cyclin-dependent kinases (cdk4 and cdk6) involved in cell cycle control, has often been found in breast cancer and other types of human cancer. Increased expression, or stability, of cyclin D1 molecules may cause sufficient cdk4 activation to produce retinoblastoma protein phosphorylation independently(More)
Overstrain tendonitis are common pathologies in the sport horses. Therapeutic approaches to tendon healing do not always result in a satisfactory anatomical and functional repair, and healed tendon is often characterized by functional impairment and high risk of reinjury. Recently, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and platelet rich plasma (PRP) have been(More)
Incomplete humeral condylar fracture was diagnosed by means of radiology, CT, scintigraphy, arthroscopy and bone biopsy in two English Pointer dogs. In both cases an acute thoracic limb lameness, unrelated to a known episode of major trauma, was observed. Incomplete humeral condylar fracture, mainly described in the Spaniel breeds, has been recently(More)
Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells have been shown to have multiple lineage differentiation properties and to be suitable for tissues regeneration in many degenerative processes. Their use has been proposed for the therapy of joint diseases and tendon injuries in the horse. In the present report the genetic manipulation of Equine Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells(More)
Platelet concentrates are widely used in mammalian regenerative medicine to improve tissue healing. Chelonians (Testudines) would benefit from the application of thrombocyte preparations to regenerate damaged tissues, since traumatic injuries are leading causes of morbidity and mortality for both wild-living and domesticated animals. The aim of this study(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of an extra-articular surgical technique using absorbable suture material for the stabilization of traumatic coxofemoral luxation in dogs. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, clinical study. ANIMALS Fourteen client-owned dogs with recent and long-standing traumatic coxofemoral luxation (13 craniodorsal and 1 ventral). (More)
Blood stream forms of Trypanosoma lewisi from rats previously infected were labelled in vitro by galactose-oxidase oxidation followed by NaB3H4 reduction and subjected to 7.5% SDS-polyacrylamide gel analysis, by this procedure 8 bands were detected on SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. We conclude that surface composition of Trypanosoma lewisi resulted(More)
A four-year-old, male Italian hound was presented with severe spasticity of both thoracic limbs that worsened with external stimuli. The remainder of the neurological and general physical examination was normal. Complete blood cell count, chemistry profile, and serology for protozoal diseases were within normal limits. Survey radiography of the(More)
