We recently conducted a dose-response study of the effects of cocaine on several activity measures in the panel of BxD/Ty recombinant inbred mice. Animals were tested in an automated activity chamber over 2 days with i.p. saline on day 1 and i.p. cocaine on day 2, at one of four doses, 5, 15, 30 or 45 mg kg(-1). The monitor recorded total distance traveled,(More)
We investigated the effects of cocaine on multiple activity measures and cocaine self-selection in C57BL/6Ibg and DBA/2Ibg mice. Male mice were tested in an automated activity monitor at three doses of cocaine, 5, 15 and 30 mg kg-1. Activity measures included locomotion, rearings, stereotyped movements and wall-seeking. Testing was conducted on 2 days with(More)
Male and female C57BL/6 (B6) and DBA/2 (D2) mice were subjected to either acute or 5 days of repeated restraint in ventilated, 50 ml centrifuge tubes. Control animals were not disturbed. The acute restraint animals were killed immediately following 15, 30 or 60 min of restraint and blood collected for corticosterone (CORT) analysis. The results of the acute(More)
The purpose of this study was to characterize initial sensitivity (IS), acute functional tolerance (AFT), and rate of tolerance development to ethanol in lines of mice selected for aggression mice as well as to investigate the impact of isolate housing on these phenotypes. The results showed that for IS, there were no differences among treatment groups. For(More)
We recently conducted a study of the behavioral effects of combined cocaine and ethanol in genetically defined mice. Male and female C57BL/6 (B6) and DBA/2 (D2) were tested in an automated activity monitor on 2 consecutive days. On day 1, all animals received an IP injection of sterile saline and were placed into the activity monitor for 30 min. Behaviors(More)
The data presented in this review reveal the transforming potential and oncogenic capability of herpes simplex viruses in cultured cells and in experimental animals, respectively. Unfortunately, the role of these agents in human cancer, especially cervical, cannot be unequivocally established through the indirect approaches used, but circumstantial evidence(More)
Developmental differences in the biobehavioral consequences of immune activation in early life were investigated in two lines of mice selectively bred for high and low levels of inter-male aggressive behavior. At age 5 or 6 days, male mice were administered saline or 0.05 mg/kg gram-negative bacterial endotoxin (Escherichia coli, LPS, ip). There was a(More)
A virion-associated antigen, CP-1, was detected on the surface of hamster cells after transformation by inactivated herpes simplex virus type 1. Presence of the CP-1 antigen on the cells correlates with the synthesis of antibody by tumorbearing hamsters capable of neutralizing both herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2.
The interaction of endogenous type C viruses with superinfecting herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) was investigated in two murine cell lines. Replication of HSV-2 was suboptimal in random-bred Swiss/3T3A cells and, in initial experiments, infection with a low virus-to-cell ratio resulted in carrier cultures with enhanced murine leukemia virus (MuLV) p30(More)
