The Rvachev-Baroyan-Longini model is a space-time predictive model of the spread of influenza epidemics. It has been applied to 128 cities of the USSR, and more recently, to forecasting the spread of the pandemic of 1968-1969 throughout 52 large cities. It is a deterministic, mass-action, space and time continuous model. The model has been applied to the(More)
The metabolism of linoleic acid by washed human platelets was investigated. [1.14C] linoleic acid was converted to [1.14C] hydroxy octadecadienoic acids (HODEs) at about the same rate with which [1.14C] 12-HETE was produced from [1.14C] arachidonic acid. The total radioactivity in HODEs was distributed among two isomers: 13-HODE (85%) and 9-HODE (15%) as(More)
Dickeya solani is an emerging pathogen that causes soft rot and blackleg diseases in several crops including Solanum tuberosum, but little is known about its genomic diversity and evolution. We combined Illumina and PacBio technologies to complete the genome sequence of D. solani strain 3337 that was used as a reference to compare with 19 other genomes(More)
By modifying the nuclear genome of its host, the plant pathogen Agrobacterium tumefaciens induces the development of plant tumours in which it proliferates. The transformed plant tissues accumulate uncommon low molecular weight compounds called opines that are growth substrates for A. tumefaciens. In the pathogen-induced niche (the plant tumour), a(More)
To determine the extent and origin of the stimulation of 15-lipoxygenase activity in atherosclerotic aortas, formation of hydroxy-derivatives from arachidonic acid was measured by HPLC-analysis and 15-lipoxygenase mRNA expression was investigated by RNA blot and in situ hybridization in atherosclerotic and normal rabbit aortic tissues. The synthesis of(More)
The hydroxylated derivatives of polyunsaturated fatty acids may be potent modulators of basic biological responses involved in pathological processes, including atherosclerosis. The object of the present investigation was to study the effects of monohydroxylated fatty acids (namely 12-HETE) on the properties of aortic smooth muscle cells (SMC) in culture.(More)
Several species of the genus Dickeya provoke soft rot and blackleg diseases on a wide range of plants and crops. Dickeya solani has been identified as the causative agent of diseases outbreaks on potato culture in Europe for the last decade. Here, we report the complete genome of the D. solani IPO 2222T. Using PacBio and Illumina technologies, a unique(More)
We have investigated whether cellular metabolism of linoleic acid (18:2) can influence prostacyclin (PGI2) production by cultured rat aortic smooth muscle cells (SMC) and tissues. Incubation of rat SMC homogenates with [1-14C]18:2 results in the enzymatic synthesis of [14C]13-HODE (hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid) and to a lesser extent [14C]9-HODE as defined(More)
