N-acetyltransferase (NAT) and melatonin were determined in the optic lobe of the giant freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii de Man. The prawns were divided into three groups: fast-growing "jumper" males; slow-growing "laggard" males; and females. Both NAT and melatonin levels in the jumper and laggard males were comparable, whereas those of the female(More)
Giant freshwater prawns, Macrobrachium rosenbergii de Man, were reared under three different lighting conditions: continuous darkness (DD), 12 hr of light and 12 hr of darkness (LD 12:12) and continuous light (LL). After one month, the prawns were sacrificed and optic lobes isolated from the eyestalks were determined for N-acetyltransferase (NAT) activities(More)
The effect of melatonin administration on nerve growth factor (NGF) was studied in the submandibular glands of adult Swiss male mice. Melatonin injection, at 1 microg daily for 30 days, resulted in an increase in the NGF content as detected by immunohistochemistry. The submandibular gland weight and the area of the granular convoluted tubules, which(More)
Adult males of Schistosoma mansoni were preincubated in 5-hydroxytryptamine (5HT) and processed through the glyoxylic acid fluorescence technique to visualize 5HT-containing neural elements. 5HT fluorescence was seen as a series of cross-sectional rings beginning behind the ventral sucker toward the tail end. The rings were connected by two lateral nerve(More)
