Comparative immunocytochemical study of the subcommissural organ
SummaryThe subcommissural organs (SCO) of 76 specimens belonging to 25 vertebrate species (amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals) were studied by use of the immunoperoxidase procedure. The primaryExpand

Vasopressin-induced von Willebrand factor secretion from endothelial cells involves V2 receptors and cAMP.
Vasopressin and its analogue 1-deamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin (DDAVP) are known to raise plasma von Willebrand factor (vWF) levels. DDAVP is used as a hemostatic agent for the treatment of vonExpand

Immunocytochemical investigation of the hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system in birds
SummaryThe results of an immunohistochemical investigation of the hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system in several species of birds have shown that: (1) mesotocin and vasotocin are synthesized inExpand

Compartments and perivascular arrangement of the meninges covering the cerebral cortex of the rat
SummaryThe intercellular clefts of the brain and the leptomeninges, and the perivascular spaces were studied with reference to the results obtained in a previous study (Krisch et al. 1983). TheExpand

Identification and partial characterization of the secretory glycoproteins of the bovine subcommissural organ-Reissner's fiber complex. Evidence for the existence of two precursor forms.
The subcommissural organ (SCO) is a brain gland whose secretory material is released into the cerebrospinal fluid where it condenses into a thread-like structure known as Reissner's fiber (RF). ThisExpand

Opsin-immunoreactive outer segments in the pineal and parapineal organs of the lamprey (Lampetra fluviatilis), the eel (Anguilla anguilla), and the rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri)
SummaryThe pineal complex of Lampetra fluviatilis, Anguilla anguilla and Salmo gairdneri was studied by means of the indirect immunohistochemical antiopsin reaction.Opsin-immunoreactive material wasExpand

Pinealocyte projections into the mammalian brain revealed with S-antigen antiserum.
Neural processes from mammalian pinealocytes have been discovered in several brain areas. These processes were visualized immunocytochemically in the Djungarian hamster, Phodopus sungorus, with anExpand
