Ultrastructural investigation of the vesicular glands in Scutigera coleoptrata (Chilopoda, Notostigmophora).
In the notostigmophoran centipedes, two pairs of vesicular glands have evolved. These paired glands are situated in the first and second trunk segment and open via cuticular ducts in the upper part of the particular pleura. The vesicular glands of Scutigera coleoptrata were investigated using light...
The pheromonal gland of Lymantria dispar: morphology and evidence for its innervation.
The morphological features of the glandular epithelium that secretes pheromone in the polyphagous pest gypsy moth Lymantria dispar are described by light and electron microscopy. The monolayered gland cells are covered by the folded cuticle of the intersegmental membrane between the 8th and 9th abdo...
Suitability of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor antibodies for immunohistochemistry evaluated on tissue sections of receptor gene-deficient...
We assessed the specificity of muscarinic receptor (MR) antibodies in immunohistochemical labelling on tissue sections by analysing specimens from wild-type and respective gene-deficient mice. Of 24 antibodies evaluated in this study, 16 were tested at 18 different conditions each, and eight of them...
[A contribution of the C. elegans model to the role of glial cells to the neuronal response].
Osteology of Paedocypris, a miniature and highly developmentally truncated fish (Teleostei: Ostariophysi: Cyprinidae).
We found 61 characters that have been affected by developmental truncation. A comparison with the skeletal development of a close relative, the zebrafish Danio rerio, demonstrates that the majority of the absent bones or skeletal structures in Paedocypris are those that appear late in the ossificati...
Morphological and histological organization of the pyriform appendage of the tetrabranchiate Nautilus pompilius (Cephalopoda, Mollusca).
The pyriform appendage, an organ only found in nautiloid cephalopods was investigated with histological, histochemical and ultrastructural methods in order to characterize the anatomical and the cytological structure of this organ. The pyriform appendage is situated within the genital septum and lie...
The hantaviral load in tissues of naturally infected rodents.
Hantaviruses cause a lifelong and asymptomatic infection in naturally infected hosts as well as in experimentally infected rodents. Understanding the ecology and pathogenesis of hantaviruses requires an interdisciplinary research approach, which links laboratory experiments with results gained from...
Low doses of monocrotaline in rats cause diminished bone marrow cellularity and compromised nitric oxide production by peritoneal macrophage...
Effects of yeast-derived beta-glucans on blood cholesterol and macrophage functionality.
We measured the capacities of the glucans to lower blood cholesterol. Our results showed that consumption of diets containing yeast-derived beta-glucan indicated a dose-dependent decrease in plasma cholesterol levels, with Betamune having a significantly stronger effect than WGP (Whole Glucan Partic...
In vivo implantation of 2,2'-bis(oxazoline)-linked poly-@?-caprolactone: Proof for enzyme sensitive surface erosion and biocompatibility
We have demonstrated that 2,2-bis(2-oxazoline) linked poly-epsilon-caprolactone (PCL-O) is degraded in vitro enzymatically by surface erosion which could enable the novel use of this material for drug delivery and other biomedical applications. In this study, degradation, erosion (weight loss) and t...
