The involvement of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) in TNF-induced increases in cerebral microvascular permeability was evaluated both in vitro, using primary cultured bovine brain microvessel endothelial cells (BBMEC), and in vivo, using the rat cranial window model. In primary cultured BBMEC, TNF exposure resulted in an increased appearance of the Rel A(More)
Multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP) actively transports a broad range of anionic compounds out of the cell. To date, six different homologues of MRP (i.e. MRP1-MRP6) have been identified. The current study examines the expression of the various MRP homologues in both primary cultured bovine brain microvessel endothelial cells (BBMEC) and the(More)
A lever-release version of the conditioned avoidance response (CAR) task was used to assess the behavioral effects of several psychomotor stimulants in rats. The indirect dopamine agonists, d-amphetamine (0.1 and 0.25 mg/kg) and cocaine (7.5 and 15 mg/kg), enhanced performance on this task. Both drugs increased percent avoidance responses and decreased(More)
This paper, for the first time, demonstrates that exposure of cells to the poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(propylene oxide) block copolymer, Pluronic P85, results in a substantial decrease in ATP levels selectively in MDR cells. Cells expressing high levels of functional P-glycoprotein (MCF-7/ADR, KBv; LLC-MDR1; Caco-2, bovine brain microvessel endothelial cells(More)
This report presents the findings from a survey of emerging technologies in the field of instrumentation and controls (I&C). The report (1) gives an overview of the state-of-the-art in selected technology focus areas for industrial, research, or scientific applications that are relevant to nuclear power plant I&C systems, (2) identifies significant(More)

Unilateral kainate lesions of the neostriatum and 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesions of the medial forebrain bundle were used to assess the role of neostriatal and ascending dopaminergic neurons, respectively, on dopamine-agonist induced release of neostriatal ascorbate as measured voltammetrically in freely moving rats. Electrochemically modified,(More)
This grant addresses the need for students to use technology in their everyday 11 learning through a laptop initiative. The requirements of the Hudson School District HSD 2025 plan are to prepare students for the 21 st Century through the expansion of technology and training for students and faculty. Limited access to technology at Hudson Middle School(More)
