Application of SEM and EDX in Studying Biomineralization in Plant Tissues.

This chapter describes protocols using formalin-acetic acid-alcohol (FAA) to fix plant tissues for studying biomineralization by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and qualitative energy-disp...

Library preparation methods for next-generation sequencing: Tone down the bias.

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has caused a revolution in biology. NGS requires the preparation of libraries in which (fragments of) DNA or RNA molecules are fused with adapters followed by PCR ampl...

Observational study on preoperative surgical field disinfection: Povidone-iodine and Chlorhexidine-alcohol.

Surgical site infection (SSI) rate is reported to range around 16%. Preoperative skin disinfection is keystone for SSI reduction. Chlorhexidine-alcohol has been reported to be more effective than Povi...

Assessment of pregnenolone effects on alcohol intake and preference in male alcohol preferring (P) rats.

Neuroactive steroids can modulate a variety of neurobehavioral functions via the GABAergic system. This study was conducted to determine the importance of the neurosteroid pregnenolone on the regulati...

Incidence of hypersensitivity skin reactions in patients on full-dose low-molecular-weight heparins during pregnancy.

Background: Low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWH) are the most commonly used anticoagulants for the treatment and prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in pregnancy. Hypersensitivity skin reactions ass...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Clinical protocols used to inhibit the growth or spread of NEOPLASMS.

Vinblastine derivative with antineoplastic activity against CANCER. Major side effects are myelosuppression and neurotoxicity. Vindesine is used extensively in chemotherapy protocols (ANTINEOPLASTIC COMBINED CHEMOTHERAPY PROTOCOLS).

Substances interfering with the metabolism of ethyl alcohol, causing unpleasant side effects thought to discourage the drinking of alcoholic beverages. Alcohol deterrents are used in the treatment of alcoholism.

Phospholipids which have an alcohol moiety in ethereal linkage with a saturated or unsaturated aliphatic alcohol. They are usually derivatives of phosphoglycerols or phosphatidates. The other two alcohol groups of the glycerol backbone are usually in ester linkage. These compounds are widely distributed in animal tissues.

A carbamate derivative used as an alcohol deterrent. It is a relatively nontoxic substance when administered alone, but markedly alters the intermediary metabolism of alcohol. When alcohol is ingested after administration of disulfiram, blood acetaldehyde concentrations are increased, followed by flushing, systemic vasodilation, respiratory difficulties, nausea, hypotension, and other symptoms (acetaldehyde syndrome). It acts by inhibiting aldehyde dehydrogenase.
