We report the transmittance of Antarctic snow as a function of the thickness of snow layers, in the range between 350 and 900 nm. Samples were studied near Scott Base, Ross Island, and data are presented for measurements made in early December 1996. The transmittance followed the two flux theoretica...

Administration of the petroleum ether extract of leaves of P. minima (collected from India) to female albino rats altered their regular cyclicity. Rats treated with the extract (p.o.) exhibited variations in uterine and ovarian weights and caused significant histopathological changes in the histoarc...

This paper is the first of a two-part paper on the application of selective direct control of loads for small-disturbance angle stability enhancement in power systems. The change in the utility business model and developments in enabling technologies open up new possibilities for power system reliab...

Inorganic trivalent arsenicals are vicinal thiol-reacting agents, and dithiothreitol (DTT) is a well-known dithiol agent. Interestingly, both decreasing and increasing effects of DTT on arsenic trioxide-induced apoptosis have been reported. We now provide data to show that, at high concentrations, D...

Prophenin-2 (PF-2) is a cathelicidin, 97-amino-acid antimicrobial protein stored in neutrophil secondary granules. PF-2 is expressed specifically in porcine immature myeloid cells; however, little is known about its regulation. In this study, we characterized the 5' regulatory regions of the PF-2 ge...

The LD50 value of an injected leaf extract of Pongamia glabra [P. pinnata] was 0.05 ml of 5% leaf extract for adult males of Periplaneta americana. In extract-treated males, the mushroom-shaped accessory reproductive gland exhibited disintegration of the epithelial layer and the lumen consisted of t...

The porcine antimicrobial peptide, PR-39, has several activities beyond its function of killing bacteria. Here we report that PR-39 alters macrophage viability by inhibiting apoptosis, which was induced by nutrient depletion, LPS stimulation or camptothecin treatment. This antiapoptotic effect was p...
