This study analyzed the etiology of rank-order stability and change in personality over a time period of 13 years in order to explain cumulative continuity with age. NEO five-factor inventory self- and peer report data from 696 monozygotic and 387 dizygotic twin pairs reared together were analyzed using a combination of multiple-rater twin, latent(More)
The structure of the anticonvulsant 1-(4-chlorophenyl)-4-(4-morpholinyl)-2,5-dihydro-1H-imidazolin-2-one (Code: AWD 131-138, CAS-No.: 188116-07-6) was proved by IR, UV, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectra. AWD 131-138 is practically insoluble in a neutral aqueous medium at 20 degrees C (S approximately 0.08 g/l). The solubility of the substance in 0.1 N HCl is(More)
Cloacal swabs, collected from 756 wild synanthropic and exoanthropic birds of 57 species in the Czech Republic, yielded 32 strains of Salmonella typhimurium [phage types (PT) 141, 104 and 41], six isolates of S. enteritidis (PT 8, 4 and 6e), and one each of S. panama and S. anatum. Except for one S. enteritidis isolate from a grey-lag goose (Anser anser)(More)
A new epidemic clone of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium designated definitive phage type (DT) 104 has been emerging since 1990 to become most common type among S. Typhimurium isolates in Germany and Austria. Molecular fingerprinting (PFGE-pattern, plasmid profiles, IS200 pattern, ribotype, ERIC-type, OMP and MLE patterns) revealed the majority of(More)
In the course of a study which was made in order to contribute to the knowledge about influenza viruses in birds, 18 strains of avian Influenza-A-subtypes were isolated from cloaca swabs. From the Central European bird species, one strain of Influenza A/England/62 was isolated from a mallard. All other species of birds obtained from three different biotopes(More)
Isolated cysts ofSarcocystis aucheniae of the llama (Lama glama) were fed to one dog and one cat. Only the dog excreted sporocysts, measuring 13.1–15.7 (15.0±0.54)×9.0–11.3 (10.4±0.36) μm after 11 days for 21 days. A second cat, which had ingested meat of a llama containing macrocysts ofS. aucheniae as well as sarcosporidial cysts visible only under a(More)
The Bielefeld Longitudinal Study of Adult Twins (BiLSAT) is a German longitudinal study of monozygotic and dizygotic twins reared together, including more than 1,100 twin pairs aged between 14 and 80 who participated in the first wave. Data were collected at five waves of assessment between 1993 and 2009. Initially, the study focused on genetic and(More)
In skin neoplasms (so-called keratoakanthomas, papillomas, and squamous cell carcinomas) ofMastomys natalensis (GRA Giessen) virus particles and viral antigens were demonstrated in distinct epithelial layers. Nuclei of the upper parts of the stratum granulosum and disintegrated cell parts of the stratum corneum contain viral structures. The localization of(More)
