Old Buildings And The New Wilderness: The Politics Of Conservation In Cumberland Island, Georgia

Date: 08-09-2011 19:32

This thesis examines the projects of wilderness conservation and historic preservation as they interact to shape the landscape of Cumberland Island National Seashore on the Georgia coast.  The National Park Service is obligated to protect both wilderness and historic resources, but when the two coexist they expose an ideological and functional divide between celebrating a ... read full abstract ››

Superoxide Dismutase And Glutathione Status Of Isolated Guinea Pig Ledig Cells

Date: 04-09-2011 18:39

Utilization of highly enriched preparations of steroidogenic Leydig cells have proven invaluable for studing the direct effects of various hormones and chemical agents on Leydig cell function in vitro. However, recent work indicates that cultured Leydig cells stimulated to produce testosterone are often subjected to oxygen toxicity at ambient oxygen levels. It was hypothesized ... read full abstract ››

HPLC Identification Of An Oxytocin-Like Peptide From Isolated Guinea Pig Leydig Cells

Date: 04-09-2011 17:34

The 1980s heralded the discovery and identification of extra-pituitary sources of the neurohypophysial hormone oxytocin in several animal species. The presence, location and biosynthesis of significant amounts of oxytocin from the ovarian corpus luteum was followed by the immunocytochemical demonstration of an oxytocin-like peptide in the interstitial (Leydig) cells. ... read full abstract ››

Sandfly Vectors And Rodent Reservoirs Responsible For Leishmaniasis Transmission In A Remote Area Of North-sinai (egypt)

Date: 19-08-2011 23:58

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is prevalent in Sinai Peninsula (Egypt) and previous research has consistently documented the etiological agent to be Leishmania major. The present work reports the first isolation of L. tropica from a Northern Sinai community bordering Palestine. Parasite culturing, real time PCR, gene sequencing and RFLP analysis indicate CL cas ... read full abstract ››

Mechanisms By Which Hypoxia Augments Leydig Cell Viability And Differentiated Cell Function In Vitro

Date: 18-08-2011 02:22

The 1980s heralded the discovery and identification of extra-pituitary sources of the neurohypophysial hormone oxytocin in non-neural tissues of several animal species. The presence, location and biosynthesis of significant amounts of oxytocin in the ovarian corpus luteum was followed by the immunocytochemical demonstration of an oxytocin-like peptide in the testicular interst ... read full abstract ››

Spatial Relationships, Behavioral Patterns And Performance Levels Of Group-housed Domestic Rabbits

Date: 18-08-2011 02:14

Efficient use of commercial rabbit production facilities include housing the optimum number of rabbits per unit of area without adversely affecting the performance or the health of the animals. An experiment was conducted to determine the effect of pen design on animal production and management. Four different pen designs of equal area 0.74 sq. m but of unequal perimeter were ... read full abstract ››

Dna Methylation In Histoplasma Capsulatum

Date: 07-08-2011 10:07

Histoplasma capsulatum is the causative agent of histoplasmosis, a respiratory disease prevalent in the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys. The organism is found as a multicellular mold in soils contaminated with bird or bat excreta (at 25° C). Conversion to the unicellular parasitic yeast takes place when aerosolized spores are inhaled into the lungs (at 37° C). Hence ... read full abstract ››

Influence Of Sewage Network On Ground Water Quality Around Challaghata Valley Of Bangalore City

Date: 06-08-2011 18:42

Study conducted on influence of sewage network on  Ground water quality around Challaghata valley of Bangalore City, India. The ground water is believed to be comparatively clean free from pollution than the surface water but prolonged discharge of domestic sewage and solid waste causes ground water to become polluted and create health problem. Present study deals with th ... read full abstract ››
