Structural and compositional features of bacterial cell samples and of lipopolysaccharide±protein complex isolated from the cell surface of the plant-growth-promoting rhizobacterium Azospirillum brasilense (wild-type strain Sp7) were characterised using Fourier transform (FT) Raman spectroscopy. The structural spectroscopic information obtained is analysed(More)
Structural and compositional features of whole cells of the plant-growth-promoting rhizobacterium Azospirillum brasilense Sp7 under standard and heavy metal-stressed conditions are analysed using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and compared with the FT-Raman spectroscopic data obtained previously [J. Mol. Struct. 563±564 (2001) 199]. The(More)
Effects of exercise training on ␣-moto-neurons. Evidence is presented that one locus of adaptation in the " neural adaptations to training " is at the level of the ␣-motoneurons. With increased voluntary activity, these neurons show evidence of dendrite restructuring, increased protein synthesis, increased axon transport of proteins, enhanced neuromuscular(More)
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is caused by mutation(s) in the phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) gene which lead to deficient PAH activity and an accumulation of phenylalanine in the blood. The primary pathologic finding is hypomyelination and gliosis of central nervous system white matter. Similar white matter pathology is observed in the Pahenu2 mouse, a genetic(More)
The relative content of calcitonin gene-related peptide in lumbar motoneuron cell bodies (semiquantitative immunohistochemistry) and sciatic nerve was examined in rats who had previously undergone a 16-week period of endurance training on a motor-driven treadmill. Soleus motoneurons were identified in the spinal cord by their fluorescence following(More)
1. Businesses have an unrivalled ability to mobilize human, physical and financial capital, often manage large land holdings, and draw on resources and supply products that impact a wide array of ecosystems. Businesses therefore have the potential to make a substantial contribution to arresting declines in biodiversity and ecosystem services. To realize(More)
