Magnetic Resonance Imaging Lesions in the Central Nervous System of a Dog with Canine Monocytic Ehrlichiosis
Linda G. Lang,John F. Griffin,Jonathan M. Levine,Edward B. Breitschwerdt
Case Reports in Veterinary Medicine , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/379627
Abstract: A ten-year-old neutered male dog was examined for tetraparesis, vestibular dysfunction, ataxia,and vertebral column hyperesthesia of 10 days duration. On magnetic resonance imaging (MRI),there were multifocal, punctate, T2-hyperintense lesions in the brain and cervical spinal cord andintracranial leptomeningeal contrast enhancement. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis revealed apredominantly mononuclear pleocytosis and mildly elevated protein. Ehrlichia canis wasdiagnosed by serum immunofluorescent antibody (IFA) testing. The dog improved withadministration of doxycycline. This report describes MRI central nervous system findings in a dogwith ehrlichiosis.

Surfactant Protein-A Modulates LPS-Induced TLR4 Localization and Signaling via β-Arrestin 2
Vicky Sender, Linda Lang, Cordula Stamme
PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0059896
Abstract: The soluble C-type lectin surfactant protein (SP)-A mediates lung immune responses partially via its direct effects on alveolar macrophages (AM), the main resident leukocytes exposed to antigens. SP-A modulates the AM threshold of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) activity towards an anti-inflammatory phenotype both in vitro and in vivo through various mechanisms. LPS responses are tightly regulated via distinct pathways including subcellular TLR4 localization and thus ligand sensing. The cytosolic scaffold and signaling protein β-arrestin 2 acts as negative regulator of LPS-induced TLR4 activation. Here we show that SP-A neither increases TLR4 abundancy nor co-localizes with TLR4 in primary AM. SP-A significantly reduces the LPS-induced co-localization of TLR4 with the early endosome antigen (EEA) 1 by promoting the co-localization of TLR4 with the post-Golgi compartment marker Vti1b in freshly isolated AM from rats and wild-type (WT) mice, but not in β-arrestin 2?/? AM. Compared to WT mice pulmonary LPS-induced TNF-α release in β-arrestin 2?/? mice is accelerated and enhanced and exogenous SP-A fails to inhibit both lung LPS-induced TNF-α release and TLR4/EEA1 positioning. SP-A, but not LPS, enhances β-arrestin 2 protein expression in a time-dependent manner in primary rat AM. The constitutive expression of β-arrestin 2 in AM from SP-A?/? mice is significantly reduced compared to SP-A+/+ mice and is rescued by SP-A. Prolonged endosome retention of LPS-induced TLR4 in AM from SP-A?/? mice is restored by exogenous SP-A, and is antagonized by β-arrestin 2 blocking peptides. LPS induces β-arrestin 2/TLR4 association in primary AM which is further enhanced by SP-A. The data demonstrate that SP-A modulates LPS-induced TLR4 trafficking and signaling in vitro and in vivo engaging β-arrestin 2.

Witnesses of God: Exhortatory Preachers in Medieval al-Andalus and the Magreb
Jones, Linda G.
Al-Qantara : Revista de Estudios Arabes , 2007,
Abstract: This article analyzes the rhetorical and ritual characteristics of pious exhortation (wa,z) as practiced in al-Andalus and the Maghreb, based on specimens from two homiletic sources. The texts are considered in light of hagiographical and juridical data in order to assess the social role of exhortatory preachers and to explain the extraordinary impact of their sermons. The sermon's affective power derives from the preacher's personal charisma, rhetorical prowess, and his active engagement of his audience in the production of their own charismatic experience. The hagiographies considered depict the wa,iz as a witness to God's omnipotence, precipitating the religious conversion of even the socially marginalized. Este artículo analiza los aspectos retóricos y rituales de la exhortación piadosa (wa,z) practicada en al-Andalus y el Magreb, tomando como base documental dos fuentes homiléticas. Los textos se analizan a la luz de noticias hagiográficas y jurídicas con el fin de determinar el papel social de los wu,,az y el impacto de sus sermones. El poder seductor del sermón se halla en función del carisma del predicador, sus dotes de oratoria y su afán en involucrar activamente a su auditorio en su propia experiencia carismática. Los textos hagiográficos examinados presentan al wa,iz como testigo de la omnipotencia divina, propiciando la conversión religiosa, incluso de individuos situados al margen de la sociedad.

Islām al-kāfir fī āl al-khu ba: concerning the conversion of “infidels” to Islam during the Muslim Friday sermon in Mamluk Egypt
Jones, Linda G.
Anuario de Estudios Medievales , 2012,
Abstract: Ibn al- ājj al-‘Abdarī a Maliki jurist in Mamluk Cairo, denounced a religious “innovation” (bid‘a) that had apparently become current in fourteenthcentury Egypt: “Infidels” would interrupt the Muslim Friday sermon in order to profess or reiterate their conversion to Islam before the entire congregation. Ibn al- ājj urged preachers not to tolerate such interruptions under any circumstances, a posture that seems at odd with Mamluk policy of inducing such conversions especially among the Coptic community. The Maliki jurist’s legal arguments furnish new insights into the hitherto unexplored role of the Friday liturgical sermon in the conversion to Islam. This article will explain the legal basis of Ibn al- ājj’s opposition to this practice, propose some explanations for the motivations behind the would-be convert’s interruption of the sermon, and relate this phenomenon to the historical context of tense Muslim-Christian relations in fourteenth-century Mamluk Egypt. Ibn al- a al-‘Abdarī, un jurista malikí en el Cairo mameluco, denunció una “innovación religiosa” (bid‘a) que se extendió en el Egipto del siglo XIV. Los “infieles” interrumpían el sermón del viernes, aparentemente, para proclamar o reiterar su conversión al Islam ante la congregación. Ibn al- a instó a los predicadores a no tolerar dichas interrupciones bajo ninguna circunstancia –postura que parece contradecir a la política impuesta por los mamelucos de forzar la conversión de los infieles, sobre todo de los procedentes de la comunidad copta. Los argumentos legales de Ibn al- a arrojan nueva luz sobre el papel, hasta entonces ignorado por los estudiosos, del sermón del viernes en la conversión al islam. El artículo analiza las bases jurídicas de la oposición manifestada por Ibn al- a hacia esta práctica, explica los posibles motivos que indujeron a los conversos a interrumpir el sermón islámico y relaciona este fenómeno con el contexto histórico de las tensas relaciones entre musulmanes y cristianos en el Egipto mameluco.
“The Christian Companion”: A rhetorical trope in the narration of intra-muslim conflict during the Almohad epoch
Jones, Linda G.
Anuario de Estudios Medievales , 2008,
Abstract: This paper will explore representations of intra-Muslim conflict between the Almohads and Andalusi Muslim chieftains as reflected in the Almohad chronicle al-Mann bi l-imama by Ibn Sahib al-Sala. Following Foucault’s notion of the “violence of representation”, I analyze the rhetorical strategies the author employs to create binary oppositions contrasting the legitimacy of the Almohads with the illegitimacy of their enemies, focusing especially on the “Christian companions” of the Andalusi rebels, and comparing his narratives of Almohad and rebel violence. I conclude that the representations of violent conflict positively reify Almohad identity as the defenders of the true faith. En este ensayo se examinarán las representaciones de conflictos intramusulmanes entre los Almohades y los caudillos andalusíes reflejadas en la crónica almohade, al-Mann bi l-imama de Ibn Sahib al-Sala. Siguiendo la noción foucauldiana de la “violencia de la representación”, analizo las estrategias discursivas que emplea el autor para construir “oposiciones binarias”, contrastando la legitimidad del poder almohade a la ilegitimidad de sus enemigos, centrándome particularmente en los “compa eros cristianos” de los rebeldes andalusíes, y comparando las imágenes de la violencia almohade y rebelde. Concluyo que las representaciones de conflicto violento juegan un papel positivo, reafirmando la identidad almohade como defensora de la religión verdadera.
