Tryptophan metabolism in vitamin B6-deficient mice
(Cambridge University Press, 1990-01)
Vitamin B6 deficiency was induced in mice by maintenance for 4 weeks on a vitamin B6-free diet. Tryptophan metabolism was assessed by determining the urinary excretion of tryptophan metabolites, the metabolism of [14C]tryptophan ...
Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis of genetic variation in Moringa oleifera Lam
(Blackwell Science Ltd, 1999)
Ultrastructural Changes in Salivary Glands of Tsetse, Glossina Morsitans Morsitans, Infected with Virus and Rickettsia-like Organisms.
(Journal of Invertebrate Pathology, 1990-11)
Electron microscope observations on enlarged hypertrophied salivary glands dissected from adult laboratory-reared male Glossina morsitans morsitans show a concurrent infection of the salivary gland tissue with rod-shaped ...
Isolation of Trypanosoma Brucei from the Monitor Lizard (Varanus niloticus) in an Endemic Focus of Rhodesian Sleeping Sickness in Kenya.
(Acta Tropica - Journal, 1999)
Monitor lizards were sampled along the shores of Lake Victoria to detect natural infections of potentially human-infective trypanosomes. In an area with endemic rhodesian sleeping sickness, one of 19 lizards was infected ...
Effect of the Stage of Infection by Rust on Yield of French Beans
The most critical periods of infection of French beans were planted at two sites--Kabete, where temperatures are cool and Naivasha, where it is warmer. They were inoculated with the rust pathogen at six different stages ...
Tryptophan metabolism and vitamin B6 nutritional status in patients with schistosomiasis mansoni and in infected mice
(Cambridge University Press, 1992-06)
Patients infected with Schistosoma mansoni showed an abnormal response to a test dose of tryptophan, with little increase in the urinary excretion of kynurenine, hydroxykynurenine, xanthurenic and kynurenic acids, N1-methyl ...
Simulated performance of thermal storage in a solar cooker
An explicit finite-difference method is used to simulate the thermal performance of short-term thermal storage for a focusing, indoor, institutional, solar cooker. The cooker storage unit consists of a cylindrical solid ...
Medicinal plants of Kenya: Effects on Meloidogyne incognita and the growth of okra.
Root dip in the extracts of Datura metel, Ricinus communis and Galium aparinoides significantly reduced infection by Meloidogyne incognita on okra. Soil amendment with these plants had a similar effect. Plant growth improved ...
Differentiation of Vector Species of Phlebotominae (Diptera: Psychodidae) in Kenya by Chorionic Sculpturing of their Eggs.
(The Entomological Society of America., 1992)
Chorionic sculpturing on eggs of Phlebotomus pedifer Lewis, Mutinga, and Ashford; the closely related Phlebotomus aculeatus Lewis, Minter, and Ashford (= P. elegonensis Ngoka, Madel, and Mutinga); and Phlebotomus martini ...
Schistosoma mansoni: Effects on tryptophan metabolism in mice
In mice, infection with 20–30 cercariae of Schistosoma mansoni resulted in a considerable reduction in the formation of 14CO2 from [14C]tryptophan. Infected animals excreted significantly lower amounts of kynurenine, ...
