The effects of ascorbic acid on the toxicity of morphine in mice were investigated. An intraperitoneal dose of sodium ascorbate (1 G/kg) injected 10 min prior to morphine (500 mg/kg, i.p.) was found to provide significant protection against mortality due to respiratory depression, while having no effect on the lethality of the pentobarbital. Pretreatment(More)
Enkephalin immunoreactive material from adrenal glands was characterized both in maternal and fetal sheep at various gestational ages. Whole gland extracts from both maternal and fetal sheep contained three major peaks of Enk immunoreactivity corresponding to apparent molecular weights of 10,000, 2800, and less than 1200 daltons. The majority of maternal(More)
Final expression of the proenkephalin A and proenkephalin B (prodynorphin) gene should yield a fixed ratio of enkephalin-like peptides depending on their precursor origin. If a tissue contained peptides only from proenkephalin A this ratio would be 4/1/1/1 (Met-Enk/Leu-Enk/Met-Enk-Arg6-Phe7/Met-Enk-Arg6-Gly7-Leu8). On the other hand, if the tissue-derived(More)
Much research identifies a gender gap in mathematics, and some research points to single-gender math classrooms as a solution to the math gender divide. The author conducted a seven week study in which she divided fifty fifth grade students into single-gender mathematics classes. She wanted to examine if single-gender math classes affected the math(More)
Opioid receptor binding was studied in 3 brain regions from maternal and fetal sheep at various gestational ages. [3H]dihydromorphine [( 3H]DHM) and [3H]D-Ala2,D-Leu5-enkephalin ([3H]DADLE) were employed as radioligands to characterize mu- and delta-opioid receptor binding sites, respectively. [3H]DHM binding was found to be highest in maternal cerebellum,(More)
