Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) plants were transformed with “antisense” constructs to the genes encoding the α-and β-subunits of pyrophosphate: fructose-6-phosphate phosphotransferase (PEP), their expression being driven by the constitutive CaMV 35S promotor. (i) In several independent transformant lines, PFP expression was decreased by 70–90% in growing(More)
Adults of Schistosoma mansoni were incubated in several culture media at various time intervals ranging from 2 to 96 hr. The morphologic changes induced by the incubation were documented using both scanning and transmission electron microscopy. These included changes in the tegument, esophageal cells, and cecum. Variability was noted among worms within(More)
Evaluation of numerous procedures for collection and preparation of Schistosoma mansoni for scanning (SEM) and transmission microscopy (TEM) revealed that some commonly used methods result in introduction of osmotic or mechanical damage. Modification and selection of appropriate procedures allowed elimination of these artifacts. Not eliminated by these(More)
