RNA-Based Assessment of Diversity and Composition of Active Archaeal Communities in the German Bight
Archaea play an important role in various biogeochemical cycles. They are known extremophiles inhabiting environments such as thermal springs or hydrothermal vents. Recent studies have revealed a significant abundance of ...
Tandem Affinity Depletion: A Combination of Affinity Fractionation and Immunoaffinity Depletion Allows the Detection of Low-Abundance Components in the Complex Proteomes of Body Fluids
Protein biomarker discovery in the low concentration range of human body fluids requires the enrichment of the proteins of interest. Here we report on a tandem affinity strategy: In the first step, we isolated a human ...
Exceptionally Long CDR3H Are Not Isotype Restricted in Bovine Immunoglobulins
Exceptionally long third complementarity determining regions of the heavy chain (CDR3H) were previously described as a specificity of bovine IgG and IgM immunoglobulins. In addition, the genomic organization of the ...
The role of organizational culture in modeling buyerseller relationships in the fresh fruit and vegetable trade between Ghana and Europe
In this paper, a model for buyer-seller relationships between Ghanaian fresh fruit and vegetable exporters and their buyers in Europe is provided. Organizational culture is brought into the limelight as an important ...
A High Resolution Genome-Wide Scan for Significant Selective Sweeps: An Application to Pooled Sequence Data in Laying Chickens
In most studies aimed at localizing footprints of past selection, outliers at tails of the empirical distribution of a given test statistic are assumed to reflect locus-specific selective forces. Significance cutoffs are ...
Toxicity, growth regulatory and repellent activities of medicinal plant extracts on Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidea)
Housefly, Musca domestica, is a major vector for many medical and veterinary pathogenic organisms. The development of naturally occurring insecticides, represent one of the most promising approaches for their ecochemical ...
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN GRAZING INTENSITY, VEGETATION STRUCTURE AND SURVIVAL OF NESTS IN SEMI-NATURAL GRASSLANDS
One of the causes of decline of farmland birds in Europe is the loss of broods. Here, we investigated if region, cattle grazing intensity, habitat edges and vegetation structure around artificial nests influence predation, ...
Importance of husk covering on field infestation of maize by Sitophilus zeamais Motsch (Coleoptera: Curculionidea) at Bako, Western Ethiopia
An experiment was conducted to determine the importance of husk covering on field infestation of maize by the maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais, at Bako, western Ethiopia. Five maize genotypes, G1 (SZSYNA99- F2 -33-4-2 X ...
Biological detoxification of the mycotoxin deoxynivalenol and its use in genetically engineered crops and feed additives
Deoxynivalenol (DON) is the major mycotoxin produced by Fusarium fungi in grains. Food and feed contaminated with DON pose a health risk to humans and livestock. The risk can be reduced by enzymatic detoxification. Complete ...
Prospects for a European Animal Welfare Label from the German Perspective: Supply Chain Barriers
The Federal Government of Germany as well as the European Commission are discussing the establishment of an animal welfare label. This label should enable consumers to make a conscious purchasing decision on animal welfare ...
