Bovine papillomavirus transmission and chromosomal aberrations: an experimental model.
Enzootic haematuria and urinary bladder cancer in cattle are associated with feeding on bracken fern and bovine papillomavirus (BPV) infection. An increased rate of chromosomal aberrations inExpand

Postnatal development of rats exposed to fluoxetine or venlafaxine during the third week of pregnancy.
The aim of the present study was to compare the toxic effects of fluoxetine (F) (8 and 16 mg/kg) and venlafaxine (V) (40 and 80 mg/kg) administered during the third week of pregnancy on earlyExpand

Projections of the paratrigeminal nucleus to the ambiguus, rostroventrolateral and lateral reticular nuclei, and the solitary tract
The paratrigerminal nucleus (Pa5), a constituent of the spinal interstitial system, was linked to the pressor effect caused by bradykinin injected in the dorsal lateral medulla of the rat. TheExpand

The Central Pressor Effect of Bradykinin in Normotensive and Hypertensive Rats
The site of action for the pressor response to bradykinin administered into the lateral ventricle has been reported to be either in the septal area or in the ventral portion of the third ventricle.Expand

Autoradiographic detection of kinin receptors in the human medulla of control, hypertensive, and diabetic donors.
Kinins have been elected to the status of central neuromediators. Their effects are mediated through the activation of two G-protein-coupled receptors, denoted B, and B2. Functional and bindingExpand

Does REM sleep deprivation induce a supersensitivity of dopaminergic receptors in the rat brain?
The possibility that REM sleep deprivation induces increased sensitivity of rats to the effects of apomorphine was investigated. Rats were deprived of REM sleep by placing them on 6.0 cm platformsExpand

Neuronal connections of the paratrigeminal nucleus: a topographic analysis of neurons projecting to bulbar, pontine and thalamic nuclei related to cardiovascular, respiratory and sensory functions
The paratrigeminal nucleus, which receives sensory input from trigeminal, glossopharyngeal and vagus nerves, has efferent projections to bulbar, pontine and possibly to thalamic structures associatedExpand

Clastogenic effect of bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum v. arachnoideum) diet in peripheral lymphocytes of human consumers: preliminary data.
Ingestion of bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum v. arachnoideum) is associated with digestive tract cancer in different regions of Japan, Venezuela and Brazil. In view of reports that dietary brackenExpand

Molecular structure and expression of rat bradykinin B2 receptor gene. Evidence for alternative splicing.
Bradykinin is a potent vasodilatory peptide hormone involved in a broad range of physiological actions. While it acts through at least two types of receptors which are named B1 and B2, most of itsExpand

Pressor effect mediated by bradykinin in the paratrigeminal nucleus of the rat
1 The participation of the paratrigeminal nucleus (Pa5) in the pressor response produced by bradykinin in the dorsolateral medulla of rats was investigated. The microinjection of 6 pmol of bradykininExpand
