botulinum needs, and which must act together for the spores
to germinate in response to the correct stimulus, such as the presence of a nutrient amino acid.
They intend to test this in the long run and expect that, if needed, common chemical treatments could help keep the spores
the atmospheric dispersal of algae and fern spores
across the island of Oahu, Hawaii, Pp.
The variation in vesicle size and the number of spores
is noteworthy for two reasons.
People who develop anthrax through inhaling spores
can develop flu-like symptoms, such as sore throat, fatigue and muscle aches.
5 cm) of water-agar containing spores
germinated on the roots were placed upside down.
The SARC SPORE
is a highly innovative approach for integrating translational and clinical study of an orphan malignancy that has historically been under-funded and under-studied," said Raphael E.
No significant germination of spores
was detected by the scientists.
Authors of the earlier study said their finding "might provide new tools to combat mycobacterial diseases such as tuberculosis by preventing the disease itself and/or its transmission by spores
By using a camera that captures 250,000 frames per second, the researchers were able to watch how the fungus shoots out its spores
like a miniature squirt gun.
As the water receded, concerns related to air quality emerged--specifically, aerosolization of mold spores
If cellular components could be obtained from spores
of individual sporangia, it would not be necessary to culture the fungus.
