BACKGROUND In alpha1-AR knockout (alpha1ABKO) mice that lacked cardiac myocyte alpha1-adrenergic receptor (alpha1-AR) binding, aortic constriction induced apoptosis, dilated cardiomyopathy, and death. However, it was unclear whether these effects were attributable to a lack of cardiac myocyte alpha1-ARs and whether the alpha1A, alpha1B, or both subtypes(More)
We previously identified an alpha1-AR-ERK (alpha1A-adrenergic receptor-extracellular signal-regulated kinase) survival signaling pathway in adult cardiac myocytes. Here, we investigated localization of alpha1-AR subtypes (alpha1A and alpha1B) and how their localization influences alpha1-AR signaling in cardiac myocytes. Using binding assays on myocyte(More)
We previously identified an 1-AR-ERK ( 1A-adrenergic receptor–extracellular signal-regulated kinase) survival signaling pathway in adult cardiac myocytes. Here, we investigated localization of 1-AR subtypes ( 1A and 1B) and how their localization influences 1-AR signaling in cardiac myocytes. Using binding assays on myocyte subcellular fractions or a(More)
Our laboratory has been working for the last several years with bacterial strains (designated as 1B-A, 1B-C, 1B-E, and 1D-3) isolated from South Dakota wheat foliage and residue which are able to antagonize Fusarium graminearum in laboratory plate assays and in field plot trials. Although we have known for many years that the bacterial strains are endospore(More)
<lb>Wheat is most vulnerable to infection by Fusarium graminearum during anthesis, while spring barley<lb>becomes vulnerable to infection at early head emergence. If prolonged periods of favorable weather for<lb>infection occur after these growth stages, multiple infections may occur, resulting in lower yield and quality<lb>and higher deoxynivalenol (DON)(More)
Several microbial strains belonging to different taxa, isolated from various parts of the world, have been shown to have the ability to antagonize Fusarium graminearum to different extents under various conditions. Some of these microbial strains are being developed as biological control agents (BCAs) for control of FHB. Different BCAs have different(More)
Selected Bacillus and Paenibacillus strains isolated from South Dakota wheat foliage and residue have been shown to antagonize isolates of Fusarium graminearum causing FHB, as well as antagonizing Pyrenophora tritici-repentis which causes tanspot. Application of whole live cells of these bacterial biocontrol agents (BCAs) as well as application of(More)
