Chandan Saini et al.
Comparative biochemistry and physiology. Part A, Molecular & integrative physiology, 233, 84-88 (2019-04-12)
Humans have greatly altered Earth's night-time photic environment via the production of artificial light at night (ALAN; e.g. street lights, car traffic, billboards, lit buildings). ALAN is a problem of growing importance because it may significantly disrupt the seasonal and
Sisi Gao et al.
General and comparative endocrinology, 275, 30-37 (2019-02-06)
Stress-induced inhibition of innate immune activity has been observed in a variety of wild birds and may increase chances of infection because this activity constitutes the first line of defense against pathogens. We previously reported that the transient elevation of
Sisi Gao et al.
The Journal of experimental biology, 220(Pt 2), 322-327 (2016-11-05)
Stress-induced effects on innate immune activity in wild birds have been difficult to predict. These difficulties may arise from the frequent assumptions that (1) the stress response influences different components of the immune response similarly, (2) stress-induced effects do not
Susannah S French et al.
Biology open, 1(5), 482-487 (2012-12-06)
The field of ecoimmunology is currently undergoing rapid expansion, whereby biologists from a wide range of ecological disciplines are increasingly interested in assessing immunocompetence in their study organisms. One of the key challenges to researchers is determining what eco-immune measures
Ping Zhang et al.
The Journal of antimicrobial chemotherapy, 73(3), 615-619 (2017-12-07)
Staphylococcus aureus small colony variants (SCVs) cause persistent infections and are resistant to cationic antibiotics. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) have been suggested as promising alternatives for treating antibiotic-resistant bacteria. We investigated the capacity of the human cationic AMP LL-37 to kill
Pavlos Anastasiadis et al.
Journal of nanobiotechnology, 12, 24-24 (2014-07-07)
Immuno-compromised patients such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy are susceptible to bacterial infections leading to biofilm matrix formation. This surrounding biofilm matrix acts as a diffusion barrier that binds up antibiotics and antibodies, promoting resistance to treatment. Developing non-invasive imaging
Rouba Ghobeira et al.
Biomedical materials (Bristol, England), 12(1), 015017-015017 (2017-01-25)
For most tissue engineering applications, surface modification and sterilization of polymers are critical aspects determining the implant success. The first part of this study is thus dedicated to modifying polycaprolactone (PCL) surfaces via plasma treatment using a medium pressure dielectric
