An acute 72hr growth inhibition test using ampicillin on a mixed population of microalgae (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata., Chlorella spp., Scenedesmus spp.)Download
Increased use of pharmaceuticals such as antibiotics has lead to the presence of biologically active antibiotics (i.e ampicillin) in surface waters, causing awareness of possible human and environmental health concerns. These non-target effects could cause effects on aquatic ecosystems and...
Coral reef degradation and loss of coral species is occurring at increasing rates throughout the world's oceans, where corals are faced with the effects of a destructive combination of natural and anthropogenic stressors. Overfishing, tourism, extraction of fossil fuels, coral mining, increased...
Comparing the anti-microbial effect of penicillin to that of chlorine dioxide on three opportunistic pathogensDownload
Introduction: The discovery of penicillin is a watershed in the history of medicine. Today, antibiotics are a part of everyday life. However, some speculate that society may return to the pre-antibiotic era if the increasing emergence and spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria cannot be slowed....
Bacteria are commonly encountered cell culture contaminants. Due to the costly consequences of media contamination and the loss of research production, further research should be devoted to the prevention of contamination so time and money are not wasted. Phage have been demonstrated to prevent...
Congenital malformations are a major cause of infant morbidity and mortality, and exposure to teratogens such as ethanol/alcohol during pregnancy can have harmful effects on the developing embryo. The severity of fetal damage depends upon the amount and timing of fetal exposure to alcohol, as...
Induction of apoptotic cell death by the dietary flavonol, quercetin, in MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 breast adenocarcinoma cell linesDownload
Numerous studies have provided considerable evidence on quercetin's potential as a chemotherapeutic agent. Quercetin is a highly bioavailable dietary flavonoid that induces apoptosis in different cancer cell lines. Currently, the reported effects of this compound have been observed at...
Background: Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a multigene disorder commonly associated with hyperphagia and obesity. Children with PWS have increased fat mass and decreased lean mass before the onset of hyperphagia and obesity. Severe hypotonia and reduced muscle strength are typically present in...
Ontogeny of Albertosaurus sarcophagus: Speedy adults or fast juveniles? How the development of the species affected the biomechanics and the implications for hunting strategiesDownload
The focus of this study was to examine the overall speeds that can be reached by Albertosaurus sarcophagus and comparing the results of Struthio camelus to determine the likelihood of those speeds being reached. The first step of the study was to determine the allometric relations that were...
Hypertension is the number one reason to visit the family physician in Canada and is responsible for substantial health care expenses. Approximately one third of community-dwelling Canadians with hypertension have blood pressure (BP) levels exceeding recommended thresholds, and this is partly...
