We studied the distribution of genes and recombination in wheat (Triticum aestivum) group 1 chromosomes by comparing high-density physical and genetic maps. Physical maps of chromosomes 1A, 1B, and 1D were generated by mapping 50 DNA markers on 56 single-break deletion lines. A consensus physical map was compared with the 1D genetic map of Triticum tauschii(More)
We describe a new method for the rapid fractionation of plasma lipoproteins, which makes use of a new non-ionic, iodinated, density gradient medium, iodixanol, commercially available as Optiprep(TM). The method is simple: plasma or serum is mixed with iodixanol followed by centrifugation in a vertical or near vertical rotor. Separation of VLDL, LDL and HDL(More)
Autologous saphenous vein grafts, unlike internal mammary artery grafts, suffer many late occlusions as a result of excessive proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and the superimposition of atheroma on the resulting thickened intima. We investigated the possible basis of this difference using organ cultures. Internal mammary artery segments and(More)
Nipah virus causes periodic livestock and human disease with high case fatality rate, and consequent major economic, social and psychological impacts. Fruit bats of the genus Pteropus are the natural reservoir. In this study, we used real time PCR to screen the saliva and urine of P. vampyrus from North Sumatera for Nipah virus genome. A conventional(More)
AIM The aim of this retrospective study was to examine the outcome of patients referred to a dedicated clinic for dental extractions while they were prescribed either oral or intra-venous (IV) bisphosphonates (BPs). The following parameters were assessed: mode of BP administration, indication for BP prescription, incidence of BRONJ, concomitant risk factors(More)
PROBLEM The World Health Organization (WHO) developed a guideline with 10 control measures to reduce transmission of A(H5N1) avian influenza virus in markets in low-resource settings. The practical aspects of guide implementation have never been described. APPROACH WHO's guideline was implemented in two Indonesian markets in the city of Makassar to try to(More)
