Spectral sensitivity of the newt taricha granulosa to visible and uv radiation

, : Spectral sensitivity of the newt taricha granulosa to visible and uv radiation. Comparative Biochemistry & Physiology A 63(2): 313-318

Using an electroretinographic technique, the eye of T. granulosa was most sensitive to wavelengths of light in the vicinity of 600 nm, in both the dark- and light-adapted states. UV sensitivity extends into the UV B region (320-290 nm). The lens of the eye fluoresces in response to UV light in the range from 310-390 nm with an observed excitation maximum between 350 and 360 nm. Fluorescence of the lens may be a contributing factor in UV sensitivity.

To compare transcription profiles in genotypes of Glycine tomentella that are differentially sensitive to soybean rust, caused by the fungal pathogen Phakopsora pachyrhizi, four cDNA libraries were constructed using the suppression subtractive hyb...

Females of Centris (Hemisiella) vittata Lepeletier were observed visiting flowers of Byrsonima sp. (Malpighiaceae) and nesting in Astronium sp. (Anacardiaceae) in a mesophytic forest area at Urbano Santos, Maranhao, Northeastern Brazil.

The phagocytic ability of polymorphonuclear cells and macrophages from aged, bed ridden patients was investigated. Phagocytosis of carbon in aged bed ridden patients did not differ from that of young controls, and extent of upregulation of granulo...

We reviewed 51 eyes of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) using indocyanine green angiography. In late-phase angiogram, the whole polypoidal structure became hyperfluorescent with dye leakage in 23 eyes (45%). The core of polypoidal structure...

The existence of inorganic polyphosphates [poly(P)] in human cells has been demonstrated. In osteoblasts, it is suggested that the concentration of cellular poly(P) is relatively high. In this study, we examined whether poly(P) accelerates the dif...
