Transplantation of kidneys from older donors is being advocated to expand the organ donor pool. However, the prevalence of atherosclerosis and age-induced renal structural alterations account for the variable function of allografts procured from these older donors. Pretransplant biopsies are sometimes used to evaluate kidneys from older donors, but to date(More)
Our light and electron microscopy observations have revealed that the chromatic unit for the caudal fin in the blue variant of the Siamese fighting fish consists exclusively of dermal chromatophores comprised of compact and overlapping light-reflecting motile iridophores underlined by a layer of light absorbing melanophores. The 2 subtypes that make up(More)

The present investigation was undertaken to study the nature of neuro-melanophore junction in the white-spotted rabbit fish Siganus canaliculatus. In vitro experiments using split fin preparation indicated that melanophores of S. canaliculatus are highly responsive to potassium ions and adrenergic agonists. Potassium ions and the adrenergic agonists induced(More)
The pharmacokinetics of tobramycin were determined in six healthy camels (Camelus dromedarius) following the intravenous (i.v.) and intramuscular (i.m.) administration of single doses of tobramycin sulphate (40 mg/ml). The half-life to tobramycin was 189 +/- 21 min and the mean residence time was 254 +/- 26 min. The apparent volume of distribution (area(More)
The effect of R. stricta water extract on glucose homeostasis was studied in normal and streptozotocin diabetic rats. R. stricta had no effect on fasting glucose levels in normal and diabetic rats up to 7 h after its oral administration. In normal and diabetic rats R. stricta did not produce any significant effect on an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).(More)
