Induction of histone acetylation in the nucleus accumbens (NAc), a key brain reward region, promotes cocaine-induced alterations in gene expression. Histone deacetylases (HDACs) tightly regulate the acetylation of histone tails, but little is known about the functional specificity of different HDAC isoforms in the development and maintenance of(More)
Overall performance, including ease of use, total hands-on time, incubation and processing times, sensitivity, and specificity, of each of nine enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) were compared by using 222 individual fecal samples submitted for the detection of Giardia lamblia. The assays evaluated were manufactured by Alexon, Inc., Cambridge(More)
Chronic social defeat stress in mice produces a susceptible phenotype characterized by several behavioral abnormalities consistent with human depression that are reversed by chronic but not acute exposure to antidepressant medications. Recent work in addiction models demonstrates that the transcription factor ΔFosB and protein kinase calmodulin-dependent(More)

A total of 417 fecal samples preserved in 10% buffered formalin and PVA were submitted to a commercial microbiology laboratory only for the detection of Giardia lamblia. Results from fecal specimens collected from 411 patients with gastrointestinal symptoms were compared using the following methods: (a) standard Ova & Parasite (O&P) concentration; (b)(More)
