Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene.

1NM-PP1 treatment of mice infected with Toxoplasma gondii. (1/207)

Bumped kinase inhibitors (BKIs) target analog-sensitive kinases, which the genomes of mammals rarely encode. Previously, we demonstrated that a BKI effectively suppressed the in vitro replication of Toxoplasma gondii, the causative pathogen of toxoplasmosis, by targeting T. gondii calcium-dependent protein kinase 1 (TgCDPK1) (Eukaryotic Cell, 9: 667-670). Here, we examined whether the BKI 1NM-PP1 reduced parasite replication in vivo. A high dose of 1NM-PP1, by intraperitoneal injection, just before the parasite inoculation effectively reduced the parasite load in the brains, livers, and lungs of T. gondii-infected mice, however, a low dose of 1NM-PP1 with oral administration didn't change the survival rates of infected mice.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - An unusual trophic subsidy and species dominance in a tropical stream. AU - Lancaster, Jill. AU - Dobson, Michael. AU - Magana, Adiel M. AU - Arnold, Amanda. AU - Mathooko, Jude. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - In classical theory, species are assumed to achieve dominance through competitive exclusion, but if food resources are limiting, cross-habitat trophic subsidies could also underpin dominance. The impact of dominant species on community dynamics may depend on the energy base of population size. We report on an unusual, spatially subsidized population of a tropical, stream-dwelling crab that dominates the benthic fauna of a Kenyan stream. Diet and stable isotope analyses indicated that this crab is a true omnivore, with terrestrial subsidies dominating both plant and animal resources..

Many models of parasitic infections lead to an approximately Poisson distribution of parasites among hosts, in stark contrast to the highly over-dispersed distributions that are usually encountered in practice. In this paper, a model is analyzed which, while assuming all individuals to be alike, can still lead to a very heterogeneous distribution of parasites among the host population. The model can be viewed as a very simple mean field interacting particle system, with the particles corresponding to the individual hosts, which behaves like an associated deterministic system when the number of hosts is large. The deterministic system describes the evolution over time of the proportions of the population with different parasite loads, and its equilibria are interpreted as typical distributions of parasites among hosts. Despite its simplicity, the model is complicated enough mathematically to leave a number of open problems. ...

Background: The diagnosis of Chagas disease is complex due to the dynamics of parasitemia in the clinical phases of the disease. The molecular tests have been considered promissory because they detect the parasite in all clinical phases. Trypanosoma cruzi presents significant genetic variability and is classified into six Discrete Typing Units TcI-TcVI (DTUs) with the emergence of foreseen genotypes within TcI as TcIDom and TcI Sylvatic. The objective of this study was to determine the operating characteristics of molecular tests (conventional and Real Time PCR) for the detection of T. cruzi DNA, parasitic loads and DTUs in a large cohort of Colombian patients from acute and chronic phases. Methodology/Principal Findings: Samples were obtained from 708 patients in all clinical phases. Standard diagnosis (direct and serological tests) and molecular tests (conventional PCR and quantitative PCR) targeting the nuclear satellite DNA region. The genotyping was performed by PCR using the intergenic ...

By: Heidi Stevenson. This is the Age of Aluminum. As the scientific dean of aluminums biological effects, Dr. Chris Exley, says, Pandoras box has been opened. We are living with aluminum in virtually every aspect of our lives, from structures to transportation to water supplies to cosmetic and health products to household cleaners to our food. It is in everything, including our bodies. The mad headlong rush to tear aluminum out of the earth leaves a swathe of destruction and destroyed lives behind it.. Aluminum is an exceptionally versatile chemically active element, which is why its ubiquitous in todays world. However, it has no natural role in any biological form. It is a highly toxic poison. Unfortunately, as Dr. Exleys apt metaphor suggests, we cannot simply close the lid. One way or another, we must live with it.. The problem in todays society is that most of the financing for research is coopted by the profit imperative. As a result, far too little science is dedicated to concerns ...

Morphometrics is the study of co-variation of biological form and its causes. Its development over the last decades has reached several biological sciences with a traditional descriptive approach, such as morphological sciences. The new geometric morphometric tools allow not only objective quantitative analysis, but also to assess qualitative traits due to the chance of recovering the form under study. This is possible because of the application of biometry techniques, instruments and software that allow the acquisition and analysis of shape coordinates that represent the geometry of the specimen, and that are not limited to obtaining linear data that lack of precision and ...

The two paths of lysine synthesis seem to be quite unusual in the consistency of their dichotomous distribution over a broad range of biological forms. This consistency suggests that these paths did not arise sporadically, and that their distribution pattern was not disturbed by genetic exchange. It appears probable that neither path emerged in an organism possessing the other, since a partial appearance of either path in the presence of the other may well have been selected against, and an appearance in toto is thought unlikely in view of the number of enzymes involved in each path. It is thus assumed that the two lysine paths arose individually in organisms incapable of lysine synthesis ...
Recently the phenomenon of predisposition to helminth infection has been reported in a number of studies: those individuals which are heavily infected before treatment with an anthelmintic tend also to acquire heavy parasite burdens following a period of reinfection. This correlation between parasite burdens in initial and reinfections is generated by differences between hosts in their exposure to infective stages and in their susceptibility to infection. Inter-host differences in these factors also generate the aggregated or over-dispersed parasite distributions that are usually observed. This paper uses probability theory to predict the correlation between initial and reinfection parasite burdens assuming that those inter-host differences which generate over-dispersion remain constant for a given individual between initial and reinfection periods. The predicted correlation is considerably greater than is observed in most published data sets. Over-dispersion is thus generated by variability ...
I also had blood drawn on 5/23 to check my thyroid levels. My FT3 was actually higher than last time I had blood drawn in March, although I was on less Cytomel. Since muscle testing in April had revealed that I am somewhat blocking on the Cytomel but testing really good on Naturethroid, I decided to take the plunge, go up from 1 grain NT to 2 grains, and reduce Cytomel from 68.75 mcg to 12.5 mcg. It scares me a little since I dont want my RT3 issues to come back, which basically means going hypoT, but I cant deal with all the heart racing from T3 either. It also would be nice to stop taking the beta blocker. In addition, Dr. D said that a lot of her patients are able to reduce thyroid meds as the bacterial and parasite load goes down. Once they heal completely many of them are able to go off thyroid meds completely, even if they have been on them most of their lives, or they take a much smaller dose. Thats awesome! ...

article{9cc27631-773b-4625-add5-aeb353c7d0cb, abstract = {,p,Parasite diversity and abundance (parasite load) vary greatly among host species. However, the influence of host traits on variation in parasitism remains poorly understood. Comparative studies of parasite load have largely examined measures of parasite species richness and are predominantly based on records obtained from published data. Consequently, little is known about the relationships between host traits and other aspects of parasite load, such as parasite abundance, prevalence and aggregation. Meanwhile, understanding of parasite species richness may be clouded by limitations associated with data collation from multiple independent sources. We conducted a field study of Lake Tanganyika cichlid fishes and their helminth parasites. Using a Bayesian phylogenetic comparative framework, we tested evolutionary associations between five key host traits (body size, gut length, diet breadth, habitat complexity and number of sympatric ...
Parasites can influence traits related to the fitness of the host, including host behavior. I studied the behavior of the Ozark zigzag salamander (Plethodon angusticlavius), that was naturally infected with the larval stage of an ectoparasitic mite (Hannemania eltoni) to determine if parasitism was associated with altered behavioral patterns. Experiments were designed to answer three specific questions: (1) Can level of parasitism be detected via chemical cues by conspecifics? (2) Does level of parasitism influence agonistic behavior of males in male-male interactions? and (3) Is parasitism associated with altered foraging behavior of females? In experiment 1, males and females were tested in separate two-choice experiments in the following test conditions: (a) fecal pellet of male with low parasite load versus fecal pellet of male with high parasite load, (b) fecal pellet of male with low parasite load versus control (chemical blank) pellet, and (c) fecal pellet of male with high parasite load versus
Fuel economy can be part of a business case for a fleet making the decision to buy new HD hybrid drivetrain technologies. Chassis dynamometer tests using SAE Recommended Practice J2711 on a bus equipped with an Allison EP SYSTEM ™ hybrid system and operated on standard bus driving cycles have produced impressive gains of over 60%. Preliminary urban bus field tests, on the other hand, have shown lower fuel economy gains. The difference can be attributed, in part, to the use of accessories - most importantly air conditioning - which are parasitic loads on the vehicle. In this paper the characteristics of driving cycles are studied to determine those factors which have the strongest influence on fuel economy for hybrids. The data show that the number of stopping events in a route or cycle is a strong influence as is the average vehicle speed. Energy analysis will show the relationship of fuel economy benefit and battery energy within a driving cycle ...
The residuals treatment process deals with excess activated sludge, screening, and grit materials removed from the other treatment process areas at the plant.. Screening and grit from the headworks process are transported to landfill for disposal. The excess activated sludge is treated in aerobic digesters. The digester process is another biologic form of treatment. It reduces the activated sludge by 40-50% when it is aerated for a period of 18-21 days.. After the sludge has been digested it is removed, thickened and sent to a belt press for dewatering. The sludge cake concentration after dewatering is 17- 18%, the material is then put in a windrow building were it is turned over several times during over @ 7-10 day period; this allow the cake solids to increase to 25-30%. The sludge is then removed and sent to landfill for disposal.. Thank You for visiting us.. Oscar King. Senior Operator - Collections ...

Abstract: Structural analysis of primate limb bones using engineering beam theory can reduce complex biological forms to a few readily interpretable and functionally relevant parameters. Several methods of obtaining and analyzing these structural parameters are described, including computed tomography, multiple plane radiography, photon absorptiometry, and automated digital analysis. Examples of applications of these data to problems in primate adaptation and evolution include improved estimation of body mass in fossil species, investigation of relative fore- and hindlimb mechanical loadings (dominance), and study of more subtle within and between species differences in behavior as reflected in variations in limb bone shape. In addition, it is shown that combined analyses of diaphyseal and articular structure can provide information on aspects of structural evolution of primate limb bones not evident from independent analysis of either type of characteristic alone.. ...
Ben said that they did two years of extensive research regarding evolution before doing this film. However, he has said evolution is lightning striking a mud puddle in several talk show interviews, which is a straw man argument against abiogenesis, not evolution. One team extensively researching evolution for two years (with a bias towards the results) is also hardly on par with the numerous groups and individuals who have made researching evolution their lifes work. Eugenics is nothing more than the idea that artificial selection techniques, such as those used by animal breeders, can be used on humans as well. Evolution is the study of change, specifically, changes in biological forms. While the artificial selection techniques of eugenics and breeding do fit under this umbrella, the main concern of evolutionary study is the understanding of natural selection. While these techniques can, theoretically, be used against a population by forcing individuals to breed or sterilize themselves, in ...

On this episode of ID the Future, philosopher of biology Paul Nelson continues his discussion with host Andrew McDiarmid about Nelsons recent visit to the Galapagos Islands, made famous by Charles Darwin. Nelson explains how Darwin was right - partly. Darwin urged biologists to consider the history of a plant or animal, an idea that was much neglected in the work of his predecessors. As Darwins experience on the Galapagos showed, and as Nelsons experience there echoed, history must be part of our explanation for how species and populations have become the way they are today. At the same time, there are demonstrated limits to evolutionary change, Nelson argues, and so natural history alone cannot be the entire explanation for the origin of biological form. ...

Introduction. A central concern of the pro/anti transhumanist debate is whether to restrict our human bodies to a biological form or to expand our personal existence onto non-biological platforms. The anti-transhumanist position is that we are our DNA-birthed bodies. I suggest that cybernetics may very well offer a means for expanding the human being.. In Jean-Pierre Dupuys essay Cybernetics Is An Antihumanism: Advanced Technologies and the Rebellion Against the Human Condition, Dupuy misstates the cybernetics premise. Dupuy suggests that cybernetics in its quest for control is something anti-human. Alternatively, I suggest that cybernetics is simply an extension of life, much like a modern primate digging stick or insectoid behavioral pattern all of which quests for control over the environment. Failure to exert control over ones environment is tantamount to extinction, for no environment provides all the requisites for life at all times without manipulation. Even bacteria control their ...
