A Dog That Disappeared in Florida in 2016 ‘Some How, Some Way’ Was Just Found in New York

(FREEPORT, N.Y.) — A dog that disappeared in Florida in February 2016 has been found in New York. A woman who said she found the German shepherd-Jack Russell Terrier mix brought it last week to a Long Island and New York City rescue group called Bobbi and The Strays, which traced its microchip and tracked down its astonished family in West Palm Beach, Florida. “I had said many times, ‘They’re going to find that dog. They may not find that dog alive, but somehow, some way, they’re going to find the chip on that dog and they’re going to be calling us,'” Rick Moneck told The Associated Press in a phone call on Saturday. Nonetheless, the news came as quite the shock. “I never, ever expected — you know, we kind of gave up on it,” said Moneck. “After this much time had gone by, you just move on with your life.” Moneck told Newsday, which first reported the story, that his family adopted the “beautiful” and “well-behaved” dog, named Relay, as a puppy in 2014. One day, Relay set off to explore. “I think she’s a wanderer,” Moneck told the AP. “And I think she was just an opportunist dog and happened to see that she could fit underneath the gate.” The family scoured the area and put up fliers. “The lady in the gas station said she saw a man call the dog over and walk away with the dog,” Moneck said. A blurry video appeared to show a man putting Rela...

Abstract Mashed potato powder as well as powdered infant formula (PIF) are frequently contaminated with Bacillus cereus sensu lato (B. cereus s.l.), mainly with its spores. These products have also been implicated in foodborne illnesses. Here, we characterized B. cereus s.l. isolates originating from powdered products based on sporulation assays, toxin gene profiling, and panC typing combined with a SplitsTree analysis. Furthermore, cytotoxicity assays with B. cytotoxicus isolates were performed. 78% of PIF tested positive for B. cereus s.l., whereas 92% of all mashed potato powders were positive. In total, 43 iso...

In this study, 36 ESBL-/AmpC-producing Escherichia (E.) coli isolates recovered from meat products imported into the EU from third countries (non-EU countries), both legally and illegally, were examined with regard to their antibiotic resistance profiles, virulence-associated genes and their genetic relatedness. The isolates were characterized by antibiotic susceptibility testing, multilocus sequence typing, macrorestriction analysis, microarray analyses and additional PCR assays. The most prevalent ESBL gene among the isolates was blaCTX-M-2 (n = 15), followed by the AmpC β-lactamase gene blaCMY-2 (n = 8). Th...

, Martínez-Del-Pozo Á Abstract Filamentous fungi are an invaluable source for biocontrol strategies and for production and development of different antifungal polypeptides. Within this context, cysteine-rich antifungal AFP-like peptides stand out among many different antimicrobial compounds given their production easiness, stability, versatility, and efficacy. AFP from Aspergillus giganteus represents the hallmark of this still increasing family of antifungal polypeptides. Close in silico analyses of the Fusarium graminearum genome revealed the presence of an AFP-like peptide, here designated as FgAF...

aredes J, Arana S Abstract Spoilage yeasts detection is the key to improve the quality of alcoholic fermentation beverages such as wine and cider. The metabolic activity of the spoilage yeast causes irreparable damage to many liters of final products every year. Therefore, winemakers and cider-house companies suffer a substantial economic impact. Thus, over the years, many detection techniques have been proposed to control the occurrence of spoilage yeast. Out of the many spoilage yeast genera, Brettanomyces is one of the most commonly encountered in the beverage industry. Leveraging its ability to thrive in wine ...

Here, a new transcript CmFTL3ps4 which contains three different amino acid residues compared to CmFTL3 was characterized. When driven by the Arabidopsis thaliana FT promoter, CmFTL3ps4 expression did not rescue the late flowering phenotype of the A. thaliana ft-10 mutant. When the variant sequences CmFTL3Q130K, CmFTL3G136A and CmFTL3D145...

Publication date: 7 November 2018Source: Journal of Theoretical Biology, Volume 456Author(s): Kazuto Doi, Mayuko NakamaruAbstractTransitive inference (TI) that uses known relationships to deduce unknown ones (using A > B and B > C to infer A > C given no direct interactions between A and C) to assess the opponent's strength, or resource-holding potential (RHP), is widely reported in animals living in a group. This sounds counter-intuitive because TI seems to require social cognition and larger memory capacity than other inference that does not require social cognition as much as TI; individuals need ab...

Both structures are virtually identical despite different crystal packing contacts. In both structures, the FtsH hexamer is created from two different subunits of the asymmetric unit by the three-fold symmetry of the crystals. Similar to other published structures, all subunits are loaded with...

In this study, Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) ortholog (OnSYK) was identified and characterized at expression pattern against bacterial infection, function in B cells activation pathway and inflammatory response. The cDNA of OnSYK ORF contained 1851 bp of nucleotide sequence encoding polypeptides of 616 amino acids. The deduced OnSYK protein was highly homologous to other species SYK, containing two SH2 domains and a TyrKc domain. Spatial mRNA expression analysis revealed that OnSYK had wide tissue distribution and was highly expressed in the liver. After challenge of Streptococcus agalactiae (S. agalactiae) in viv...
