The University of Missouri EM Core is a resource center for scanning and transmission electron microscopy, providing investigators with consultation, training, access to instrumentation, and extensive services. The facility was established in 1995 by combining the electron microscopy resources of the College of Veterinary Medicine; the School of Medicine; and the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. In 2000 the Core was expanded by the incorporation of the Department of Geological Sciences' Microbeam Analysis Facility. The Electron Microscopy Core is hosted by the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology.

  • Isolation and characterization of a baculovirus associated with the insect parasitoid wasp, Cotesia marginiventris, or its host, Trichoplusia ni 

    Grasela, James J. (James John), 1951-; McIntosh, Arthur H.; Shelby, Kent S.; Long, Steve (University of Wisconsin, 2008)
    A multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (MNPV) was isolated from Trichoplusia ni (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) larvae that had been stung by the parasitoid Cotesia marginiventris (Cresson) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae). The wild ...
  • Electrochemical properties of carbon nanoparticles entrapped in silica matrix 

    Bok, Sangho, 1972-; Lubguban, Arnold A.; Gao, Yuanfang; Bhattacharya, Shantanu, 1974-; Korampally, Venumadhav, 1972-; Hossain, Maruf; Gangopadhyay, Shubhra (Electrochemical Society, 2008)
    Carbon-based electrode materials have been widely used for many years for electrochemical charge storage, energy generation, and catalysis. We have developed an electrode material with high specific capacitance by entrapping ...
  • Oxidative stress-mediated mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to angiotensin II-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in transgenic ren2 rats 

    Wei, Yongzhong; Clark, Suzanne E.; Thyfault, John P.; Uptergrove, Grace M.E.; Wenhan, Li; Whaley-Connell, Adam T.; Ferrario, Carlos M.; Sowers, James R. (James Russell), 1942-; Ibdah, Jamal A. (American Society for Investigative Pathology, 2009)
    Emerging evidence indicates that impaired mitochondrial fatty acid [beta]-oxidation plays a key role in liver steatosis. We have recently demonstrated that increased angiotensin (ANG) II causes progressive hepatic steatosis ...
  • Regulation of floral organ abscission in Arabidopsis thaliana 

    Cho, Sung Ki; Larue, Clayton T., 1977-; Chevalier, David; Wang, Huachun; Jinn, Tsung-Luo; Zhang, Shuqun, 1970-; Walker, John C. (The National Academy of Sciences of the USA, 2008)
    Abscission is a developmental program that results in the active shedding of infected or nonfunctional organs from a plant body. Here, we establish a signaling pathway that controls abscission in Arabidopsis thaliana from ...
  • Disseminated chlorellosis in a dog 

    Quigley, R. R.; Knowles, K.E.; Johnson, G. C. (American College of Veterinary Pathologists, 2009)
    An adult dog with ataxia and a lingual mass, previously diagnosed as protothecosis, was euthanized. At the postmortem examination, the lingual mass, regions of the lungs and hilar lymph nodes, liver, mesenteric and sublumbar ...
  • Green nanotechnology from tea : phytochemicals in tea as building blocks for production of biocompatible gold nanoparticles 

    Nune, Satish K.; Chanda, Nripen; Shukla, Ravi; Katti, Kavita K.; Kulkarni, Rajesh R.; Thilakavathy, Subramanian; Mekapothula, Swapna; Kannan, Raghuraman; Katti, Kattesh V. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009)
    Phytochemicals occluded in tea have been extensively used as dietary supplements and as natural pharmaceuticals in the treatment of various diseases including human cancer. Results on the reduction capabilities of ...
  • Green nanotechnology from cumin phytochemicals : generation of biocompatible gold nanoparticles 

    Katti, Kavita K.; Chanda, Nripen; Shukla, Ravi; Zambre, Ajit; Suibramanian, Thilakavathi; Kulkarni, Rajesh R.; Kannan, Raghuraman; Katti, Kattesh V. (NIH Public Access, 2009)
    The powerful antioxidant characteristics of various phytochernicals within cumin prompted us to test their efficacy in reducing sodium tetrachloroaurate to corresponding gold nanoparticles. We, herein, report an unprecedented ...
  • Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonism attenuates vascular apoptosis and injury via rescuing protein kinase B activation 

    Wei, Yongzhong; Whaley-Connell, Adam T.; Habibi, Javad, 1947-; Rehmer, Jenna; Rehmer, Nathan; Patel, Kamlesh D.; Hayden, Melvin; DeMarco, Vincent G.; Ferrario, Carlos M.; Ibdah, Jamal A.; Sowers, James R. (James Russell), 1942- (American Heart Association, 2008)
    Emerging evidence indicates that mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) blockade reduces the risk of cardiovascular events beyond those predicted by its blood pressure-lowering actions; however, the underlying mechanisms remain ...
