Data on the occurrence of non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), in parallel with those obtained for bacterial indicators and amoebae, are presented with the aim to collect information on the spread of NTM in drinking water distribution systems in Italy. Samples were collected from taps of hospitals and households in Central and Southern Italy. The(More)
Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are microorganisms commonly living in the environment. Nevertheless, most of them are opportunistic pathogens. To verify concentrations of NTM in some man-made habitats, analyses were performed on water and surface samples, and the data were correlated to the global microbiological quality of water. Most of the drinking(More)
Previous studies in this laboratory showed an age-related decline of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in the cerebral cortex of rats. In the present study the age-related differences in enzymatic activity were evaluated in terms of individual molecular forms. Extracts containing total, soluble and membrane-bound AChE were analyzed both by(More)
