Abstract: Se evaluó el papel de los receptores alfa1- alfa2- y beta-adrenérgicos cerebrales en la acción renal de las endotelinas (ETs). La administración intracerebroventricular (ICV) de ETs a ratas macho conscientes resultó en un incremento en la excreción urinaria de sodio a la 1, 3 y 6 horas del período de recolección de orina. La administración ICV de prazosin, un antagonista selectivo del receptor alfa1-adrenérgico, inhibió la respuesta natriurética de las ETs-ICV. Por el contrario, el pretratamiento central con yohimbina (un antagonista del receptor alfa2-adrenérgico) o con atenolol (un antagonista del receptor beta1-adrenérgico) no alteró significativamente la respuesta urinaria a la ET-ICV. Nuestros resultados demuestran que las endotelinas cerebrales se encuentran involucradas en los procesos que regulan el balance electrolítico e indican que el sistema nervioso simpático cerebral, a través del receptor alfa1-adrenérgico, participa en la acción natriurética de las ETs. Experiments were conducted to investigate the role of brain the alpha1- alpha2 and beta-adrenergic receptors on the renal effects elicited by central injection of ETs. Cerebroventricular administration of endothelins (ETs) to conscious male hydrated rats resulted in an increase in urinary sodium excretion at 1, 3 and 6 hr period of urine collection. Central administration of prazosin (an alpha1-adrenergic receptor antagonist) inhibited the increase in sodium and urine excretion induced by ICV-ETs. Yohimbine (an alpha2-adrenergic receptor antagonist) or atenolol (an beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist) did not altered the urinary response to ET-IVT. Our results demonstrate a role for brain endothelin in the regulation of electrolyte balance and indicate that the sympathetic nervous system, through the alpha1-adrenergic receptor subtype, is involved in the natriuretic action of ETs.

Abstract: the rid assay is one of the in vitro methods used for in-process control in the production of rabies vaccines for veterinary use. it has been shown to be very useful for determining antigen concentration in the final bulk product. the work presented in this paper, including the production and standardization of candidate standard reagents for use in the radial immunodiffusion assay (rid) was carried out at the pan american institute for food protection and zoonoses (inppaz/paho/who). the study was completed with the cooperation of the faculty of veterinary sciences, national university of la plata (nulp), argentina, where the validation of the proposed standards and the quality control of samples from 28 different batches of rabies vaccines produced with pasteur strain rabies virus (pv) in bhk cells were performed. the activity of the vaccines was determined by in vivo (nih) and in vitro (rid)assays. the results of the candidate reagents for the reagent standardization tests showed stability, sensitivity and reproducibility. the relative potency the 1.2 between the problem vaccines and the reference vaccine was estimated by variance and regression analysis. the results of our validation study show that the inppaz (paho/who) is capable of producing and distributing the above-mentioned standard reagents, as well as of providing support for the incorporation of the rid technique (sensitive, rapid and inexpensive) to the laboratories that manufacture rabies vaccines in latin america and the caribbean.

Abstract: seeds that are unable to germinate easily are known as dormant ones and, in some cases, special treatments are required to make them germinate. there are some species, for that the way to achieve germination of seeds is not known and the mechanisms that make seeds become dormant are often ignored. in order to develop the new technologies that may contribute to improvement of germination in dormant seeds, this research examined the effect of magnetic fields with strengths of 5 mt and 10 mt over the germinating process of rice (oryza sativa l.) and tomato (solanum lycopersicum l.) seeds. the increase of biomass in seedlings belonging to these species was also studied. the o. sativa and s. lycopersicum seeds were exposed to magnetic fields at periods of time 1, 10, 20, and 60 min and 24 and 48 h. petri dishes and styrofoam flowerpots were used for the experiments. fourteen treatments were made with four replicates per species. the results showed positive effects over the seed germination in o. sativa seeds with exposure times of 1 min and 48 h. in s. lycopersicum seeds, a 10 min-exposure showed positive effects as compared with control seeds. the seedlings from these species presented the faster increase on biomass (length and weight) along the second week with treatments t3, t5, t6, and t10 .

Abstract: En un huerto de lechosa cv. Cartagena Roja se estudió el desempe o del fertirriego nitrogenado y riego sobre el rendimiento del cultivo. Se evaluaron cuatro tratamientos de fertilización nitrogenada y tres de riego, utilizando cintas de goteo, y se registró la humedad del suelo usando un TDR y mediante gravimetría. La cosecha se inició al final del período lluvioso y se prolongó durante veinte y un semanas del período seco. Se encontró que la descarga de los emisores resultó altamente uniforme en sus distintas modalidades de operación. Los tratamientos de fertilización nitrogenada no se vieron reflejados en el rendimiento de las plantas pero sí en el adelanto de la cosecha en los tratamientos con mayor dosis de fertilizante. Los tratamientos de riego tampoco afectaron los rendimientos, lo cual se atribuyó al efecto de la humedad almacenada en el perfil durante el período húmedo. Nitrogenous fertilization and watering performance on yield of a papaya orchard cv. Red Cartagena was studied.

Abstract: This paper presents an off-line integrated full ballast to supply a 35W assembly of Power LEDs. The proposed solution integrates an input PFC stage (a flyback converter operating in DCM) and a DC-DC output converter (a buck converter) into a single switch power stage, operating with peak current control. As it will be shown, this control scheme maintains the current through the load constant, regardless of the instantaneous value of the DC link voltage. This issue allows the use of a small capacitor for the DC link, which enhances the overall system reliability. The complete ballast has full dimming capability, and all the analysis and design steps are presented, thus ensuring the fulfilling of the existing regulations. The novelty of the final solution comes from the simplicity and robustness of the control scheme in an integrated compact single-switch power stage. A final prototype of the ballast has been built and tested, and experimental results are shown in the last part of the paper. Finally, conclusions and future developments are shown.
