We investigated the dopaminergic (DA) neuronal degeneration in animals subjected to systemic treatment of rotenone via subcutaneous delivery. Behavioral observations revealed a hypokinetic period in rats sacrificed at 3 and 5 days, and dystonic episodes in animals sacrificed at 8 days. Less than 20% of the total number of animals given rotenone depicted(More)
Oak woodland regeneration and restoration requires that seedlings develop mycorrhizas, yet the need for this mutualistic association is often overlooked. In this study, we asked whether Quercus garryana seedlings in nursery beds acquire mycorrhizas without artificial inoculation or access to a mycorrhizal network of other ectomycorrhizal hosts. We also(More)
Modern warfare necessitates that the physician recognize risk factors and clinical scenarios that contribute to the development of acute coagulopathy of trauma and the need for massive transfusion. To date, this is the only prospective study done in an active war zone that specifically looks at a self-induced bleeding diathesis problem among soldiers. If(More)
Malignant astrocytomas, the most common primary brain tumors, are predominantly fatal. Improved treatments will require a better understanding of the biological features of high-grade astrocytomas. To better understand the role of neuronal PAS 3 (NPAS3) in diseases in human beings, it was investigated as a candidate for astrocytomagenesis based on the(More)
PURPOSE To present an assortment of molecular targets evident from a variety of signal transduction pathways and downstream effectors, which may have clinical relevance for the treatment of medulloblastomas. SOURCE Data were archived from MEDLINE, using Boolean-formatted queries on the keywords including: medulloblastoma, pathology, prognosis,(More)
A new boron-based hybrid scorpionate ligand based upon one 2-mercaptopyridine (mp) and two 1-methyl-imidazoyl-2-thione (mt) units, Na[HB(mt)(2)(mp)] has been prepared. This new ligand together with the recently reported ligand K[HB(mp)(3)] have been used to prepare analogues of the original metallaboratrane complex [Ru(CO)(PPh(3)){kappa(4)-SSBS-B(mt)(3)}].(More)
This paper gives a discussion of the use of the split-Hopkinson bar with particular reference to the requirements of materials modelling at QinetiQ. This is to deploy validated material models for numerical simulations that are physically based and have as little characterization overhead as possible. In order to have confidence that the models have a wide(More)
The addition of flexible scorpionate ligand, [mpBm]⁻{i.e. HB(mt)2(mp), where mt = methyl-2-mercaptoimidazole and mp = 2-mercaptopyridine} to group eleven centres is reported for the first time. The coordination of this hybrid ligand to copper(I) and silver(I) centres in the presence of triphenylphosphine and trialkylphosphine co-ligands has been(More)
