Occurrence of pathogens in associated living bark beetles (Col., Scolytidae) from different spruce stands in Austria
Differences were observed in the pathogen complex of each beetle species from the different collection sites and in different years of investigation, several species showed an overlapping in their host range and infected various bark beetle species.
Steroid metabolome in plasma from the umbilical artery, umbilical vein, maternal cubital vein and in amniotic fluid in normal and preterm labor
The conjugated 3betaOH5S (the key products of the FZFA), estrogens, some polar conjugates of progesterone 5alpha/beta-reduced metabolites and some steroid 7alpha/ beta- and 16alpha-hydroxy-metabolites showed strong positive correlations with the GA.
Infections with the ascomycete fungusMetschnikowia typographi sp.nov. in the bark beetlesIps typographus andIps amitinus (Coleoptera, Scolytidae)
The ascomycete fungusMetschnikowia typographi sp.nov. is described. It infects the spruce bark beetlesIps typographus L. andIps amitinusEichl. Masses of vegetative cells and navicular asci (I.
Steroid metabolome in fetal and maternal body fluids in human late pregnancy
Evaluated data indicates increasing progesterone synthesis and its concurrently increasing catabolism with approaching parturition, and confirms declining production of pregnancy sustaining 5β-pregnane steroids providing uterine quiescence in late pregnancy, increased sulfation of further neuroinhibiting and pregnancy sustaining steroids.
Unikaryon polygraphi sp.n. (Protista, Microspora): a new pathogen of the four‐eyed spruce bark beetle Polygraphus poligraphus (Col., Scolytidae)
The microsporidium Unikaryon polygraphi sp.n., a pathogen of Polygraphus poligraphus in Austria is described based on light microscopic and ultrastructural characteristics. All life stages have
Prenatally Diagnosable Differences in the Cellular Immunity of Fetuses with Down’s and Edwards’ Syndrome
It is demonstrated that the immunological defect of the affected fetuses is already present antenatally, and can be reliably diagnosed in the second trimester of pregnancy.
Infection of Tomicus piniperda (Col., Scolytidae) with Canningia tomici sp. n. (Microsporidia, Unikaryonidae)
Canningia tomici sp. n. (Microsporidia, Unikaryonidae) infects the midgut epithelium, the gut muscules, Malpighian tubules, connective tissues, adipose tissues and the gonads of the pine shoot
Examination of the cyst of Malamoeba locustae and of the spore of Mattesia dispora with the scanning microscope
Freeze-drying was found to be the most convenient of the three methods tested for the preparation of the specimens and the fine structure of the surface of cysts of the amoeba Malamoeba locustae and that of spores of the neogregarine Mattesia dispora were examined with the scanning microscope.
The branching pattern of villous capillaries and structural changes of placental terminal villi in type 1 diabetes mellitus.
It is concluded that type 1 maternal diabetes enhances the surface area of the capillary wall by elongation, enlargement of diameter and higher branching of villous capillaries and disrupts the stromal structure of terminal villi.
Hysteroscopy after uterine fibroid embolization in women of fertile age
The purpose of the present study was to assess the types and the frequency of intrauterine abnormalities and the histological features of the endometrium after embolization.
