We propose a simple mathematical model by applying Michaelis-Menton equations of enzyme kinetics to study the mutualistic interaction between the leaf cutter ant and its fungus garden at the early stage of colony expansion. We derive sufficient conditions on the extinction and coexistence of these two species. In addition, we give a region of initial(More)
The three-dimensional architecture of the vascular network of the nasal septum of the gerbil rat was studied using the corrosive resin cast technique. The angioarchitecture of the nasal septum observed with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) showed that a vascular network is disposed in the lamina propria. The capillaries, arterioles, venules and arteries(More)
The three-dimensional architecture of the vascular network of the rat's lingual papillae has been studied employing the corrosive resin cast technique. The casts of the microvasculature of these types of papillae (the small conical filiform, true filiform, fungiform and vallate papillae) have been observed under scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The(More)
AIMS To investigate the relation between localised amyloidosis and immunocytic dyscrasia. METHODS Open lung biopsy specimens from a 72 year old man with multiple nodules in the right middle and lower lung were stained with haematoxylin-eosin, Congo red, and antibodies against IgG, IgA, IgM, and kappa and lambda light chains. Semi-nested PCR amplification(More)
