The genuine marker enzyme of primary nociceptive neurons, thiamine monophosphatase (TMPase) has been localized in the substantia gelatinosa of the rat spinal cord by means of light-and electron microscopic histochemistry; localization of substance P has been studied by light-and and electron microscopic immunohistochemical methods. It has been shown that(More)
Thiamine monophosphatase (TMPase) has been selectively localized in small dorsal root ganglion cells and in their central and peripheral terminals. Light microscopic localization of TMPase, and its alterations due to transganglionic effects, are identical with those of fluoride-resistant acid phosphatase (FRAP), but are not contaminated by the ubiquitous(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal treatment of choice for ACTH-producing pituitary adenomas is their complete removal by the transsphenoidal surgical approach. ACTH-producing pituitary adrenomas are, however, often small in size not detectable with neuro-imaging techniques, which may result in difficulties during their surgical removal. With the advent of rapid(More)
The presence of p53 and tissue transglutaminase (tTG) gene expressions was investigated in human normal and pathologic adrenal tissues with two aims (1) to determine the tissue content of p53 protein, its messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) and, especially, tTG mRNA which has not been previously reported and (2) to study possible differences in the(More)
Intraoperative bilateral cavernous sinus sampling combined with rapid ACTH measurement was performed in a pilot study in seven patients with Cushing's disease during transsphenoidal pituitary surgery before and immediately after removal of the ACTH-producing pituitary microadenoma. Before tumor removal a gradient in ACTH concentrations greater than 1.5:1(More)
