Cell types in the dorsal periaqueductal nucleus (PAGd) were studied with the aid of the rapid Golgi method in young cats. The neurons were subdivided into fusiform and stellate types with several varieties of the latter class according to the final destination of their axons. Fusiform neurons send their axons to the neuropil of the Ncom. In turn these(More)
Stellate cells (Stc) in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus of the cat are divided according to cell body size and shape, dendritic branching pattern and axonal arborization into large, medium-size and small categories. Each of these were divided in different cell types. Three types of large Stc, six types of medium sized Stc and one type of(More)
OBJECTIVES Anthropometric indices have been associated with insulin resistance in children. This study (1) determined the association between insulin resistance and anthropometric indices, including body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), WC/height, weight/(sitting height)(2), and WC/sitting height, and (2) compared the abilities of these five(More)
The involvement of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylizoxazole-4-propionic acid (AMPA) receptors in induction of long-term potentiation (LTP) was examined in rat hippocampal slice preparation. Using conventional extracellular recording, excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) and population action potentials (PSs), evoked by low-frequency stimulation of the(More)
We have determined the presence and distribution of intracellular progesterone receptors (PRs) and glucocorticoid receptors (GRs) in the lung of adult female rabbits using immunohistochemistry. The effects of ovariectomy and administration of oestradiol benzoate (10 micrograms for 3 consecutive days) upon PR and GR immunoreactivity were also studied. The(More)
The modulation of kainate-induced responses by pentobarbitone and the 2,3-benzodiazepine GYKI-53784 (LY303070), a potent non-competitive AMPA antagonist, was studied in vivo using both extracellular recordings of antidromic field potentials and intracellular recordings from abducens motoneurons in ketamine/diazepam-anesthetized rats. In previous studies on(More)
In pentobarbitone-anaesthetized rats, the effects of two AMPA receptor antagonists, the competitive antagonist 2, 3-dihydroxy-6-nitro-7-sulfamoyl-benzo-(F)-quinoxaline (NBQX) and the non-competitive 2,3-benzodiazepine GYKI 53655, were compared on excitatory synaptic transmission of trigeminal origin in intracellularly-recorded abducens motoneurons. The(More)
The reverse staining, with imidazole-SDS-zinc, of PEG-linked proteins separated by SDS-PAGE was studied. Using model conjugates (interferon-alpha 2b (IFN-alpha2b) reacted with either a branched-chain (40,000) PEG (PEG2,40) or a linear monomethoxy PEG polymer (Mr of 12,000) and chromatographically purified monoPEG2,40-IFN-alpha2b), conventional small-format(More)
