In peripheral nerves MSCs can modulate Wallerian degeneration and the overall regenerative response by acting through paracrine mechanisms directly on regenerating axons or upon the nerve-supporting Schwann cells. In the present study, the effect of human MSCs from Wharton's jelly (HMSCs), differentiated into neuroglial-like cells associated to poly(More)
The central nervous system (CNS) depressant and anticonvulsant activities of iso-6-spectaline (SPEC) were investigated in animal models. The SPEC from Senna spectabilis var. excelsa (Schrad) (0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 mg/ kg) injected by oral route (p.o.) in mice caused a significant decrease in the motor activity up to 30 days after the administration and in the(More)
In the present study, we describe the effects of the concentration and route of administration of non-radioactive cesium chloride (CsCl) in inducing micronuclei in mouse bone marrow polychromatic erythrocytes (PCEs). When the dose of 500mg/kg body weight was administered perorally (p.o.), no significant incidence of micronuclei was detected. However, when(More)
The present study examined the ultrastructure of the choroid plexus of the lateral ventricle of the horse. The material was fixed in 2.5% glutaraldehyde in 0.1 m sodium phosphate buffer, pH 7.3, processed and analysed by scanning electron microscopy. The choroid plexus was characterized by regions with a predominance of villi, which resembled finger-like(More)
In the present study, we report the results of an investigation on pyrrolizidine alkaloids extracted from Senecio brasiliensis (Sprengel) Less., which were stored for more than 23 years under variable conditions of temperature and humidity and exposed to light. Both the crude alkaloid (integerrimine+retrorsine+impurities) and pure integerrimine conserved(More)
In the present study, we report the results of an investigation of the potential of nonradioactive CsCl for the induction of micronuclei in polychromatic erythrocytes of mouse bone marrow and in human lymphocytes cultured and blocked with cytochalasin-B. No significant increase in micronucleus frequency was observed in the polychromatic erythrocytes of mice(More)
