Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is used as a marker of astrocyte response to various central nervous system injuries. In the present study, the effects of chronic ethanol administration on GFAP immunoreactivity were evaluated in astrocytes of the adult optic nerve head. The results demonstrated that ethanol exposure significantly and dramatically(More)
In the present study, the effects of chronic ethanol (ETOH) treatment on the glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) immunoreactivity was investigated in adult rat brains. ETOH were administered as increasing concentrations of 2.4%-7.2% (v/v) gradually for 21 days. Immunocytochemistry revealed that chronic-ETOH treatment increased synthesis of GFAP. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of chronically ethanol treatment on insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) synthesis in various adult brain regions using immunocytochemistry. METHODS We performed this study at the Faculty of Medicine, Kocaeli University, Kocaeli, Turkey from March 2006 to October 2007. The vascular perfusion was utilized to fix the adult(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate neuron-specific enolase (NSE) immunoreactivity of the different brain regions after pentylenetetrazol (PTZ)- induced epileptic seizures in rats. Light microscopic examinations provided evidences for changes of neuronal activity after single and repeated seizures. The number of NSE (+) cells was well correlated with(More)
To examine the expression and distribution pattern of neural cell adhesion molecule (N-CAM) and pan-cadherin immunoreactivity in intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) newborn kidneys, we used a rat model of maternal protein restriction throughout pregnancy. Weak or moderate immunoreactivity for N-CAM and pan-cadherin was seen in some proximal tubules, in(More)
The aim of this study was to examine, by use of pre-embedding immunocytochemistry, the ultrastructural localization of vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) immunoreactivity in the mouse median eminence. VIP immunoreactivity was observed in axonal profiles. The VIP-immunoreactive axonal profiles were in close proximity to non-immunoreactive axonal profiles(More)
