This study documents expression of dopamine (DA) receptors on leukocyte subpopulations using flow cytometric techniques to identify dopamine receptors with subtype-specific antibodies. Of the D1-like receptor family (D(1) and D(5)), only D(5) was detected, and of the D2-like receptor family (D(2), D(3) and D(4)), all dopamine receptors were detected.(More)
BACKGROUND Many immune-mediated diseases are associated with low levels of vitamin D and sunlight. UV light or supplementation with vitamin D can increase regulatory T-cell activity and prevent animal models of autoimmune disease. Increasing population vitamin D levels may therefore alleviate the burden of human immune-mediated disease. OBJECTIVE To(More)
The importance of the role of intentional movement and active exploration in the development of a child's knowledge concerning his body, his movement and his surrounding is recognized. Senoristasis is defined and the concept applied to deprivation studies with animal and human subjects. It is suggested that the principle can be used to explain behavioural(More)
PROBLEM Detailed analysis of the expression of natural killer (NK) cell activatory and inhibitory receptors by human decidual leukocyte subpopulations has not been undertaken. METHOD OF STUDY Expression of the natural cytotoxicity receptors NKp30, NKp44 and NKp46 by decidual leukocytes were studied by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction.(More)
The morphologic features of corneal lesions produced in rabbits by human herpesviruses, types 1 and 2 (HH1 and HH2), were studied using light and electron microscopic techniques. Also, healing lesions produced by the HH1 virus and treated by idoxuridine were similarly investigated. Scanning electron micrographs showed that although the morphology of HH1 and(More)
