Functional Identification and Characterization of an Arabidopsis thaliana Gene Involved in Vitamin B6 Biosynthesis
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is a biological coenzyme seemingly involved in environmental stress tolerance and an important vitamin in human nutrition produced in plants as well as fungi and bacteria. A series ...
Phage-coupled Piezoelectric Biodetector for Salmonella typhimurium
Salmonella typhimurium is a leading cause of foodborne illness and a critical threat agent for potential bioterrorism. Current rapid detection initiatives include biosensors that routinely incorporate antibodies for ...
Roosting behavior and habitat dynamics of male Indiana bats (Myotis sodalis) following a large-scale natural disturbance
Indiana bats (Myotis sodalis) have been the subject of numerous ecological studies, partly because they are endangered. A majority of research has focused on maternity colonies and relatively less is known about males. ...
Yolk androgen deposition in two passerine species: Do females play favorites?
Eggs of oviparous species contain variable amounts of androgens, such as testosterone (T), dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and androstenedione (A4). Previous studies in birds show that yolk androgens of maternal origin have ...
Multivariate Analysis of Chlamydia pneumoniae Lung Infection in Two Inbred Mouse Strains
This investigation was aimed at dissecting the mechanisms of C. pneumoniae pathogenesis by multivariate analysis of challenge experiments in a mouse model of C. pneumoniae lung infection. To facilitate these analyses, a ...
