Invasion 1x9

Interpretive Summary: It may be possible to enhance culturally and ecologically important forbs during restoration by creating small, carefully cultivated 'seed source islands' from which plants disperse themselves naturally over time. In our tests, all three forbs used increased in occurrence across the landscape three years after establishing islands. However, the shape (square versus rectangular) of the island did not affect forb distribution. We believe establishing seed islands of forbs or other desired species during restoration, especially after application of a broadleaf herbicide during weed control may enhance species richness and diversity and provide species critical for invasion resistance.

Although generally considered an extracellular pathogen, expanding evidence indicates that H. pylori also invades gastric epithelial cells (34). One possible explanation for the persistence of H. pylori infection despite vigorous host immunological defenses and antibiotic therapy is the existence of an intracellular bacterial reservoir. H. pylori infection predominantly triggers a T helper type 1 immune response characteristic of intracellular pathogens (37). In addition, electron microscopy studies of gastric biopsy samples obtained from infected humans demonstrate the presence of H. pylori within epithelial cells (14, 54). Recently, intracellular bacteria were identified in gastric epithelial progenitor cells in a murine model of infection (27). Furthermore, the ability of H. pylori to invade mammalian epithelial cells has been documented in gastric adenocarcinoma-derived epithelial cell lines (3, 33, 35, 39). A study on bacterial entry demonstrated that H. pylori enters into gastric cells through a zipper-like phagocytic mechanism that requires protein kinase C and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (23). Amieva and colleagues (3) reported that following H. pylori invasion of AGS cells, large vacuolar compartments are formed in which the bacteria can persist for long periods. In addition, the authors demonstrated that H. pylori can egress from this compartment and infect other gastric cells. These observations could be of fundamental importance in understanding how the bacterium escapes from the host immune response and persists in the gastric epithelium. However, significant controversy still remains regarding the ability of the bacteria to invade epithelial cells and the bacterial factors involved. Furthermore, the mechanisms promoting intracellular survival of H. pylori remain uncharacterized.

Helicobacter pylori's intracellular compartment acquires late endosomal and lysosomal markers. Panels A and B show the distribution of GFP-Rab7 (green) and Lamp-1 (blue) protein for control (A) and wild-type H. pylori-invaded cells (B). Details of the vacuolar compartment showing Lamp1 and Rab7 recruitment are presented in panels C and D, respectively. Panel E shows the distribution of GFP-Rab7 (green) and Lamp-1 (blue) for AGS cells invaded by an H. pylori vacA mutant strain. The inset in panel E shows in detail the morphology of the intracellular compartment of the vacA mutant bacteria. The recruitment of Lamp1 and Rab7 to the bacterial compartment is shown in detail in panels F and G, respectively. Panels H to J show the distribution of GFP-CD63 (green) for uninfected AGS cells (H) and AGS cells infected with wild-type (I) or VacA mutant (J) H. pylori, respectively. The insets in panels I and J show details of the bacterial niches. All of the microphotographs were taken with a spinning disk confocal microscope with a 100 oil objective. The scale bar in panel I is equivalent to 3 μm. Immunolabeled bacteria are shown in red. For all experiments, the invasion time was 24 h.

H. pylori invasion causes fusion of phagolysosome and bacterial compartments in FcIIa-expressing AGS cells. Panel A shows a fluorescent confocal micrograph of GFP-Rab7-positive phagosomes in FcIIa-expressing AGS cells, and panel B shows the merged image with the bright-field micrograph showing single 3-μm latex beads contained in each of the compartments. The exposure of AGS cells to wild-type H. pylori for a 12-h period caused the fusion of latex bead-containing phagolysosomes to form large GFP-Rab7-positive vacuoles (C), which contain multiple latex beads as shown in panel D. The exposure of AGS cells to vacA mutant H. pylori for a 12-h period did not alter the morphology of Rab7-positive engineered phagolysosomes (E and F). A DIC micrograph of an AGS cell infected with H. pylori containing multiple 3-μm latex beads in single large vacuoles is shown in panel G. Panel H shows details of the vacuole indicated in panel G. The arrows in panel H show motile intracellular H. pylori cells sharing the same vacuolar compartment with latex beads.

After managing to subdue the home invader, Officer Nolan immediately calls the police. They arrive and do standard crime scene procedure then leave. The next day, Officer Nolan resumed duty but works on the front desk. A second investigation happens because of the home invasion, so Nolan remained at the station.

Laid down in 1936, Bismarck was launched in February 1939 and its outfitting proceeded quickly in the shadow of impending war. Even so, Bismarck missed the beginning of the war and the great offensive effort of the Kriegsmarine (KM) during the invasion of Norway. Commissioned in August 1940, Bismarck departed swiftly for sea trials which lasted until the end of the year.

George McLean is an 87-year-old former first lieutenant in the 10th Company, 3168 Signal Service Battalion. On Jan. 15, 1945, his unit was attached to the XIV Army Corps during the invasion of Luzon, the largest island in the Philippines. 041b061a72
