The rat middle colon spontaneously generates regularly occurring giant contractions (GCs) in vitro. We investigated the neurohumoral and intracellular regulation of these contractions in a standard muscle bath. cGMP content was measured in strips and single smooth muscle cells. The circular muscle strips generated spontaneous GCs. Their amplitude and(More)
Over the past two decades, great strides have been made to improve the energy efficiency of electronics, appliances, and lighting and thereby reduce their energy use and the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by their use, largely through technological innovation and oversight in codes and standards initiatives and voluntary programs. However, relatively(More)
We investigated the in vivo and in vitro locus of actions of prokinetics: motilin, erythromycin, and ABT-229. The test substances were infused close intra-arterially in short segments of the jejunum in the intact conscious state. Each prokinetic acted on a presynaptic neuron and utilized at least one nicotinic synapse to stimulate circular muscle(More)
The distribution, morphology, and central projections of the mesencephalic trigeminal neurons in the frog Rana ridibunda were studied with tracing techniques. Retrograde tracing with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) or the fluorescent tracer Fluorogold, and anterograde tracing by means of Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin, the fluorescent dye DiI, and HRP were(More)
JAMES McCARTIN: Well, I would say there are certain things that haven't changed in the post-conciliar Church by the behavior of this audience. You were very compliant, for which I am very grateful. [Laughter] Thanks for being so cooperative yesterday and throughout today. First of all, I want to just say a quick word about how impressed I have been with the(More)
This is an investigation of the effects of active immunization against gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin on brain and male sexual organ concentration of catecholamines and 5-hydroxytryptamine. The treatment induces antibodies against GnRH with consequent interference with reproductive function as indicated by the(More)
