  • airborne fungal spores
  • A University of Cincinnati research team led by Dr. Tiina Reponen, with funding from NIH's National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, set out to look at specific airborne fungal spores in homes to see if different types of fungi affect allergies in infants differently. (nih.gov)
  • Also, it was found that incubation of fungal cultures for extended periods (2-6 weeks) led towards production of larger numbers of airborne fungal spores. (edu.au)
  • Pollen
  • Our reports not only include the identification and enumeration of the fungal spores trapped on the sample but other important IAQ analytes (pollen, insect fragments, fibrous particulate matter, skin and overall background density). (emsl.com)
  • Pseudomonas syringae), pollen, fungal spores and volcanic ash amongst others. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adhesion
  • A point of consensus among investigators who have directed their attention to such events in plants, insects, and vertebrates isthat spore adhesion to the host cuticle or epithelium is more than a simple binding event. (booktopia.com.au)
  • Spore adhesion and appressorium formation is inhibited by hydrolytic enzymes such as α-mannosidase, α-glucosidase, and protease, suggesting that the adhesive materials are composed of glycoproteins. (wikipedia.org)
  • lungs
  • Dr Geoffrey Scott, Chairman of the Fungal Research Trust which funded the study, said: 'These new findings are potentially of major significance to people with allergic diseases of the lungs and damaged immune systems - especially those being sent home from hospital. (prohealth.com)
  • surface
  • For example, the initial events of adh«sion of fungal spores to the exposed surface tissues of the host are essential for subsequent invasion of the plant or animal and establishment of pathogenesis. (booktopia.com.au)
  • This family of proteins includes the rodlet proteins of Neurospora crassa (gene eas) and Emericella nidulans (gene rodA), these proteins are the main component of the hydrophobic sheath covering the surface of many fungal spores. (wikipedia.org)
  • Following spore attachment and germination on the host surface, the emerging germ tube perceives physical cues such as surface hardness and hydrophobicity, as well as chemical signals including wax monomers that trigger appressorium formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Plants
  • Washington, Oct 11 (IANS) Researchers have developed a method to bombard seeds with electrons to kill fungal spores and viruses and ensure untainted food, as well as protect plants. (thaindian.com)
  • concentration
  • On the other hand, the size distribution curve of the airborne spores produced at higher air flows was correspondingly slightly shifted towards larger sizes, which is related to less efficient loosening of spores and corresponding increase in concentration of clumps consisting of more than one spore. (edu.au)
  • The results confirm that fungal spores and biological particles may account for a major fraction of supermicron aerosol particle number and mass concentration over vegetated continental regions and should thus be explicitly considered in air quality and climate studies. (atmos-chem-phys.net)
  • Cellular glycerol concentration sharply increases during spore germination, but it rapidly decreases at the point of appressorium initiation, and then gradually increases again during appressorium maturation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Stages
  • As the environmental conditions become favorable in later stages, the spores could be wakened again. (ceramics.org)
  • plant
  • Our aim in choosing the topics and contributors was to demonstrate common approaches to studies of fungal-plant and fungal-animal interactions, particularly at the biochemical and molecular Ievels. (booktopia.com.au)
  • 3. The Plant Cell Wall as a Barrier to Fungal Invasion. (booktopia.com.au)
  • Ascochyta pisi is a fungal plant pathogen that causes ascochyta blight on pea, causing lesions of stems, leaves, and pods. (wikipedia.org)
  • Initial
  • For Rhizopus, the initial steep decrease in particle generation for the first 20 min of the process was followed by quite stable spore production for the following 10 h of process operation. (edu.au)
  • results
  • The new parameterization results in similar root mean square errors (RMSEs) and correlation coefficients compared to the FBAP observations as the previously existing fungal spore emission parameterizations, with some improvements in the bias. (atmos-chem-phys.net)
  • Alaska
  • The mysterious orange-colored goo that washed up on the shore of a remote Alaska village this month has now been identified fungal spores, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. (ibtimes.com)
  • Alaska, Aug 19 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A group of scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have announced that a mysterious orange goo recently discovered on the shoreline of an Alaskan village is in fact not an egg but fungal spores. (thaindian.com)
