An immunohistochemical reaction was used to study the locations of calretinin-positive cells on frontal sections of the anterior part of the mouse cerebral cortex. A previously undescribed population of cells with a characteristic structure was found at the anterior horns of the lateral ventricles. These cells had small (8–10 μm) round bodies giving rise to(More)
Immunohistochemical studies of calretinin (CR) in forebrain structures adjacent to the anterior horn of the lateral ventricle in adult mice allowed us to detect a population of previously unknown mono- and bipolar cells whose bodies and processes were coated with polymorphous spines (PS) (Morfologiya, 135, No. 3, 7–19 (2009)). CR-positive spiny (CR+PS)(More)
Human neural stem/progenitor cells provide a useful tool for studies of neural development and differentiation, as well as a potential means for neuroreplacement therapeutic needs in the human CNS. Stem cells isolated from developing human central nervous system of 8-12-week fetuses were transplanted to the forebrain and cerebellum of young and adult rats(More)
A number of epidemiological studies have established a link between insulin resistance and the prevalence of depression. The occurrence of depression was found to precede the onset of diabetes and was hypothesized to be associated with inherited inter-related insufficiency of the peripheral and central insulin receptors. Recently, dicholine succinate, a(More)
The distributions of mitochondria and synapses in two areas of harbour porpoise cerebral cortex were examined by quantitative electron microscopy of sections stained for cytochrome oxidase. The distribution of cytochrome oxidase-positive and total mitochondria in the visual cortex of the lateral gyrus and in the auditory cortex of the temporal operculum was(More)
Experimental data were reviewed which demonstrated that the neonatal injection effects of certain biologically active drugs (ACTH4–10 fragment and its analogue Semax, piracetam, caffeine, levetiracetam, busperone, etc.) could be detected in adult animals as changes in physiological and behavioral reactions and in several morphological traits as well.(More)
Plasmids containing four GFP-tagged isoforms of the human GDNF gene, with both pre- and pro-regions (pre–pro- GDNF), with the pre- (pre-GDNF) or the pro-region (pro-GDNF) alone, and without the pre- and pro-regions (mGDNF), were used to transfect HEK293 cells (human embryonic kidney cell line). The effect of the transgenic products on the growth of(More)
Neural stem cells of human brain were cultured for a long time and successfully transplanted into the brain of rats exposed to acute hypoxia. Stem and committed cells, neuroblasts, and astrocytes were revealed in transplants by immunohistochemical assay. The transplants and brain tissue were not separated with a glial barrier. Human neuroblasts widely(More)
Mice with previously implanted electrodes for recording the cortical electroencephalogram and electromyograms underwent all-day baseline videopolysomnography with a 12/12 light cycle, after which animals received doses of 24 or 48 mg/kg of the neurotoxin precursor MPTP (1-methyl-4-phenyl-1.2.3.7-tetrahydropyridine) or physiological saline (controls) and(More)
The AGAPEPAEPAQPGVY proline-rich peptide (PRP-1) was isolated from neurosecretory granules of the bovine neurohypophysis; it is produced by N. supraopticus and N. paraventricularis. It has been shown that PRP-1 has many potentially beneficial biological effects, including immunoregulatory, hematopoietic, antimicrobial, and antineurodegenerative properties.(More)
