Water beetles in mountainous regions in southeastern Brazil
(Brazilian Journal of Biology, 2012-05-01) [Artigo]
Os inventários fornecem informações do estado da biodiversidade de um local ou uma região geográfica. O inventário de espécies é a base para o estudo de sistemática e é essencial para a ecologia, a biogeografia e a ...
Differences in the number of hemocytes in the snail host Biomphalaria tenagophila, resistant and susceptible to Schistosoma mansoni infection
(Genetics and Molecular Research, 2010-01-01) [Artigo]
The relationships between schistosomiasis and its intermediate host, mollusks of the genus Biomphalaria, have been a concern for decades. It is known that the vector mollusk shows different susceptibility against parasite ...
Natural rubber latex used as drug delivery system in guided bone regeneration (GBR)
(Materials Research, 2009-06-01) [Artigo]
In this work, we propose natural rubber latex (NRL) membranes as a protein delivery system. For this purpose Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) was incorporated into the latex solution for in vitro protein delivery experiments. ...
The influence of physical instream spatial variability on Chironomidae (Diptera) assemblages in Neotropical streams
(Limnologica, 2016-09-01) [Artigo]
In this study, the Chironomidae assemblages were studied in order to test the following hypotheses: a) mesohabitat type and substrate complexity affect the richness, abundance, and composition of the fauna; b) mesohabitat ...

(Virus Research, 2018-06-02) [Artigo]
Human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) is one of the main etiological agents of diseases of the lower respiratory tract, and is often responsible for the hospitalization of children and the elderly. To date, treatments ...
Oxytocin Sustained Release Using Natural Rubber Latex Membranes
(International Journal Of Peptide Research And Therapeutics, 2016-12-01) [Artigo]
The demand for biomaterials with properties that provide sustained release of substances with pharmacological interest is constant. One candidate for applications in this area is the Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) extracted ...
Genetic variability of Herpailurus yagouaroundi, Puma concolor and Panthera onca (Mammalia, Felidae) studied using Felis catus microsatellites
(Genetics and Molecular Biology, 2006-01-01) [Artigo]
We used four microsatellite loci (Fca08, Fca45, Fca77 and Fca96) from the domestic cat, Felis catus, to investigate genetic variability in specimens of Herpailurus yagouaroundi (jaguarundi, otter cat, eyra), Puma concolor ...
Application of natural rubber latex as scaffold for osteoblast to guided bone regeneration
(Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 2017-10-15) [Artigo]
Natural rubber latex (NRL) from Hevea brasiliensis is a colloidal system composed of cis-1,4-polyisoprene. Its applications have grown due its angiogenic and wound healing activity. NRL has been used in guided bone ...
