Ubiquitin and alpha B-crystallin belong to a class of proteins which are overexpressed in a variety of human neuropathological conditions associated with increased cellular stress. In this study we have examined the brains of aged rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta; n = 10, mean age: 29.7 years) using antibodies against the stress proteins ubiquitin, alpha(More)
Marinesco bodies (MB) are intranuclear inclusion bodies predominantly found in melanin-pigmented neurons of the substantia nigra. MB are demonstrable not only in humans but also in nonhuman primates. In the present study MB of aged rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta; n = 15; mean age 16 years) and aged baboons (Papio anubis; n = 13; mean age 25 years) were(More)
Alpha-B crystallin, ubiquitin and heat shock protein 27 (hsp27) belong to a class of proteins that are overexpressed in response to pathological conditions associated with increased cellular stress. In the present study, brain sections of old rhesus monkeys ( Macaca mulatta; n=10; mean age, 29.4 years) and baboons ( Papio anubis; n=8; mean age, 18.3 years)(More)
This paper presents a comparison of in vivo optical coherence tomography (OCT) captured cataract images to subsequent histopathological examination of the lenticular opacities. OCT imaging was performed on anesthetized Rhesus monkeys, known as the delayed effects colony (DEC), with documented cataracts. These monkeys were exposed to several types of(More)
As an approach to determining the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of each of five different heavy ions for the mammalian brain, histological preparations of brains from mice exposed to various HZE particles at different doses and primary LETinfinity values were examined by means of semi-automated image analysis for volume changes in specific regions(More)
