    Ten strains of Aeromonas hydrophila isolated from water samples were characterized by various methods including biochemical and physiological tests, as well as PCR-RFLP analysis with Universal 16s rRNA primers. Biochemical characterization and PCR-RFLP analysis proved to be useful, rapid and...

    Introduction and Objectives: Malassezia species as part of skin microflora of humans and other warm-blooded vertebrates are lipophilic yeasts that associate with various human diseases, especially pityriasis versicolor (PV). The objective of this study was to identify Malassezia species on the...

    Every species is limited both geographically and ecologically to a subset of available habitats, yet for many species the causes of distribution limits are unknown. Temperature is thought to be one of the primary determinants of species distributions along latitudinal and altitudinal gradients....

    Substance P has been detected in human skin and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of certain inflammatory cutaneous disorders. However, little is known about the number and distribution of substance P binding sites in the skin. Receptor autoradiography was employed to detect and quantitate...

  • Ultraviolet Light Induces Expression of p53 and p21 in Human Skin: Effect of Sunscreen and Constitutive p21 Expression in Skin Appendages. Pontén, Fredrik; Berne, Berit; Ren, Zhi-Ping; Nistér, Monica; Pontén, Jan // Journal of Investigative Dermatology;Sep95, Vol. 105 Issue 3, p402 

    It has been suggested that p53 plays an important role in skin carcinogenesis. The p21 molecule acts as a downstream effector of wild-type p53 by enacting cell cycle arrest. We studied p53 and p21 expression in sun-exposed skin. Healthy volunteers were exposed to ultraviolet irradiation (UVA +...

    Gene flow among hybridizing species with incomplete reproductive barriers blurs species boundaries, while selection under heterogeneous local ecological conditions or along strong gradients may counteract this tendency. Congeneric, externallyfertilizing fucoid brown algae occur as distinct...

    Human aging is associated with immunosenescence, a process characterized by alterations in numerical and functional features of immune system components. Dendritic cells (DCs) are the main antigen-presenting cells, playing a pivotal role in adaptive and innate immunity. Therefore, we...

    California contains the southernmost native populations of most Pacific Coast salmon and trout, many of which appear to be rapidly headed toward extinction. A quantitative protocol was developed to determine conservation status of all salmonids native to the state. Results indicate that if...
