Genetic and physical mapping of Avr1a in Phytophthora sojae.
The interaction between soybean and the phytopathogenic oomycete Phytophthora sojae is controlled by host resistance (Rps) genes and pathogen avirulence (Avr) genes. We have mapped the Avr1a locus inExpand

Lung volumes in infants who had mild to moderate bronchopulmonary dysplasia
Abstract“New” bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) has been suggested to be a maldevelopment sequence with reduced alveolarisation of the lungs; affected infants then would be predicted to have low lungExpand

Correlation of interleukin-6, serum lactate, and C-reactive protein to inflammation, complication, and outcome during the surgical course of patients with acute abdomen.
In the present scenario, doctors have to rely on radiological methods for diagnosis of acute abdomen in addition to their clinical skill. The use of serum markers for assessing the outcome of suchExpand
