Karyotype Evolution in the Horseshoe Bat Rhinolophus sedulus by Whole-Arm Reciprocal Translocation (WART)
Robertsonian (centric) fusion or fission is one of the predominant modes of chromosomal rearrangement in karyotype evolution among mammals. However, in karyotypes composed of only bi-armed chromosomes, creation of new ...
Comparison of Coxiella burnetii Excretion between Sheep and Goats Naturally Infected with One Cattle-Associated Genotype
The main reservoir of Coxiella (C.) burnetii are ruminants. They shed the pathogen through birth products, vaginal mucus, faeces and milk. A direct comparison of C. burnetii excretions between naturally infected sheep and ...
Use of micro-rotation imaging to study JNK-mediated cell survival in Theileria parva-infected B-lymphocytes
Lymphocytes infected with the protozoan parasite Theileria parva are transformed to permanently proliferating cells, an event underlying the pathology of the disease. However, the molecular signalling mediating this process ...
Relative incompetence of European rabbits for Lyme disease spirochaetes
To determine whether rabbits may serve as reservoir hosts for Lyme disease spirochaetes in Europe, we compared their competence as hosts for Borrelia afzelii, one of the most prevalent European spirochaetal variants, with ...

Betrachtungen über die Vielfalt des Lebens
Im Beitrag wird der Vielfalt des zeitbegrenzten Lebens in seinen verschiedenen Erscheinungsformen nachgegangen. Die Spanne der Betrachtungen reicht von kosmischen Gebilden, geologischen Erscheinungen, menschlichen ...
Effects of infection with Anguillicola crassus and simultaneous exposure with Cd and 3,3′,4,4′,5-pentachlorobiphenyl (PCB 126) on the levels of cortisol and glucose in European eel (Anguilla anguilla)
To investigate whether the stress response of European eels infected with Anguillicola crassus is influenced by environmental pollutants, experimentally infected eels were exposed to Cd and/or to 3,3′, 4,4′, 5-pentachlorobiphenyl ...
Distribution of the cholinergic nuclei in the brain of the weakly electric fish, Apteronotus leptorhynchus: Implications for sensory processing
Acetylcholine acts as a neurotransmitter/neuromodulator of many central nervous system processes such as learning and memory, attention, motor control, and sensory processing. The present study describes the spatial ...
