The genetic analysis of faecal material represents a relatively non-invasive way to study animal diet and has been widely adopted in ecological research. Due to the heterogeneous nature of faecal material the primary obstacle, common to all genetic approaches, is a means to dissect the constituent DNA sequences. Traditionally, bacterial cloning of PCR(More)
OBJECTIVES In this study, the objective was to determine the anti-inflammatory properties of CyP, a cyanobacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antagonist, used in combination with antibiotic chemotherapy during infection of an in vitro meningitis model infected with Neisseria meningitidis (meningococcus). METHODS Monocultures of human meningioma cells and(More)
The isolation of cytochrome c peroxidase, cytochrome c4, cytochrome c-551 and azurin from Pseudomonas dentrificans is described. The peroxidase has a molecular weight of 63,000 and an isoelectric point of 5.6. Its absorption spectrum suggests that it contains two haem c groups/molecule. Preliminary steady-state kinetic data are reported with cytochromes(More)
INTRODUCTION Hemodynamic monitoring is an important aspect of caring for the critically ill patients boarding in the emergency department (ED). The purpose of this study is to investigate the interrater agreement of noninvasive cardiac output measurements using transcutaneous Doppler ultrasound technique. METHODS This is a prospective observational cohort(More)
