a light-microscopic immunocytochemical study of the endocrine pancreas in the australian fat-tailed dunnart (sminthopsis crassicaudata).the endocrine pancreas of the australian fat-tailed dunnart (sminthopsis crassicaudata) was investigated by means of immunocytochemistry using the avidin-biotin-peroxidase technique. this was a light microscopic study using this established technique and has not been previously investigated. serial paraffin sections were stained individually with primary antibodies for anti-porcine glucagon, anti-beef pork insulin, anti-human somatostatin, and anti-avian pancreatic polypeptide (app), anti-bovine ...19921352914
the geographic distribution and host range of capillaria hepatica (bancroft) (nematoda) in australia.the geographic distribution, host range and prevalence of capillaria hepatica were recorded in 4629 house mice, mus domesticus, 263 black rats, rattus rattus, and 58 norway rats, r. norvegicus. the parasite was found at five localities, all in or near large towns along the coast. the two rattus species appeared to be the primary hosts of c. hepatica in australia. published and unpublished data on helminth infections of australian native mammals from 1162 murids (26 species), 3018 marsupials (67 ...19911787037
[studies on the echinonematinae (nematoda)].complementary data on the echinonematinae have been obtained by study of "the australian helminth collection, formerly the univeristy of adelaide, department of zoology helminth collection, currently housed in the south australial museum", and by a morphological and biological study of new material. the echinonematinae actually known are the following: -- seurechina chaneeti n. gen., n. sp., parasite of dasyurus hallucatus (west australia) does not have large cephalic hooks but about 50 rings of ...19807458168
isolation and characterization of melanopsin (opn4) from the australian marsupial sminthopsis crassicaudata (fat-tailed dunnart).melanopsin confers photosensitivity to a subset of retinal ganglion cells and is responsible for many non-image-forming tasks, like the detection of light for circadian entrainment. recently, two melanopsin genes, opn4m and opn4x, were described in non-mammalian vertebrates. however, only one form, opn4m, has been described in the mammals, although studies to date have been limited to the placentals and have not included the marsupials. we report here the isolation and characterization of an opn ...200717785267
