The discovered communication factor is a novel biological molecule presented Prof Engelberg – Kulka. It is a peptide The chemical characterization by the bacteria. The chemical characterization of the new communication factor was particularly difficult for the researchers because of two main reasons: It is in the bacterial culture in minute amounts, and the factor decomposes under the conditions that are routinely used during standard chemical methods for characterization. Therefore it was necessary to develop a new specific method. Research has even more bacterial identified identified involved in the generation of the communication factor, said Prof. Engelberg – Kulka.

The authors argue that , such a climate change events have complex effects on the population. ‘Illustrates the study, how environmental factors may unprecedented mortality produce events and proposes that may co-infections in the heart of many of the most serious die-offs in nature lie, ‘said Craig Packer, Regents Professor of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the University of Minnesota.

The team of scientists at the University of California, the University of Illinois and the University of Minnesota, specifically examined outbreaks of canine distemper virus in 1994 and 2001 in the lions of the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. While CDV cycles generally occurred within these ecosystems, and many outbreaks of this type without a significant decrease in the lion population these epidemics resulted in an unusually high level of mortality. That is, in 1994, the outbreak of the Serengeti study area popoulation more than 35 percent down. Losses in 2001 were in the crater. Continue reading

When a red blood cell, around 120 days old, it is broken is broken down into bilirubin by hemoglobin . Insoluble converts bilirubin into a water – soluble form. – A mutation of the UDP-glucuronosyltransferase gene Gilbert’s syndrome is caused by a faulty gene. People inherit the disease from a parent. Not conjugated bilirubin at the normal rate and accumulates in the bloodstream. If levels point point, the patient the symptoms of jaundice. As Gilbert’s syndrome diagnosed? If a person has Gilbert’s syndrome and it is diagnosed, the diagnosis is usually done in his / her late teens or early twenties. As diagnosis is pretty simple, is a genetic test is usually not necessary.

If test results indicate that water-insoluble bilirubin is high, but other tests are normal, the doctor will diagnose Gilbert’s syndrome.Environment – If the patient jaundice jaundice, the doctor a few other tests, beta-carotene whether this will no underlying diseases or conditions: acute inflammation of the liver – affect the ability of the liver to conjugate and secrete bilirubin. Can inhibit the secretion of bile and removal of bilirubin -. Continue reading
