A rise was observed in the percent and absolute value of non-rosette-forming lymphocytes in the peripheral blood and… (More)
The concentrations of cAMP and the activity of adenyl cyclase and specific cAMP-phosphodiesterase were determined in certain structures of rabbit brain. Statistically significant differences were found in the concentrations of cAMP; and enzyme activity between certain structures of the brain, particularly in the structures of the brain stem: mesencephalon,… (More)
