When Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells, grown in galactose, glucose or mannose, were treated with 1.5 mm hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) for 30 min, an important decrease in the ATP, and a less extensive decrease in the GTP, CTP, UTP and ADP-ribose levels was estimated. Concomitantly a net increase in the inosine levels was observed. Treatment with 83 mm menadione(More)
Infestations with cattle ticks, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus and Rhipicephalus annulatus, economically impact cattle production in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Vaccines containing the recombinant R. microplus BM86 gut antigen were developed and commercialized to induce an immunological protection in cattle against tick infestations.(More)
Although it remains unclear whether they are related to one another, tau aggregation and phosphorylation are the main pathological hallmarks of the neuronal disorders known as tauopathies. The capacity to aggregate is impaired in a variant of the tau 3R isoform that lacks residues 306-311 (nomenclature for the largest CNS tau isoform) and hence, we have(More)
