Monoclonal Antibodies in Immunodiagnosis and Immunotherapy (2019)

Podoplanin (PDPN)/T1 alpha is known as a specific marker of lymphatic endothelial cells and type I alveolar cells. Sensitive and specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for PDPN are needed for immunohistochemical…


Coming of age: Do female harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) from the North Sea and Baltic Sea have sufficient time to reproduce in a human influenced environment?

Kesselring, Tina; Viquerat, Sacha; Brehm, Ralph; Siebert, Ursula
PLOS ONE (2017)

The harbour porpoise is the only cetacean species native to German waters. Since human pressures are suggested to shorten their reproductive lifespan, basic knowledge on reproduction is strongly required. One…


The possible effects of high vessel traffic on the physiological parameters of the critically endangered Yangtze finless porpoise (Neophocaena asiaeorientalis ssp. asiaeorientalis)

Nabi, Ghulam; Hao, Yujiang; McLaughlin, Richard William; Wang, Ding
Frontiers in Physiology (2018)

Poyang is the largest freshwater lake in China, where the acoustic environment and space for the critically endangered Yangtze finless porpoises (YFPs) has been altered by heavy vessel traffic and…
