A dosage regimen of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) that reliably produces behavioral tolerance in rats was evaluated for effects on neurotransmitter receptor binding in rat brain using a variety of radioligands selective for amine receptor subtypes. Daily administration of LSD [130 micrograms/kg (0.27 mumol/kg) intraperitoneally (IP)] for 5 days produced(More)
Daily administration of D-lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) was previously shown to decrease serotonin2 (5-HT2) receptor binding in rat brain. Recently, 4-substituted derivatives of 1-(2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane, the substitution being with either iodine (DOI) or bromine (DOB), have been suggested to be relatively selective 5-HT2 agonists. These(More)
BACKGROUND Eosinophils selectively accumulate at sites of allergic inflammation. Their recruitment is dependent on both the expression and functional activity of cell adhesion molecules. How the functional activity of cell adhesion molecules on eosinophils is regulated is poorly understood. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to examine the functional activity of(More)
To The Editor: Helicobacter heilmannii (formerly known as Gastrospirillum hom inis) is associate d with human gastroduodenal diseases (1). The prevalence of H. heilmannii infection is usually rare, ranging between 0.25% and 0.6% (2, 3). In addition, most reports are from deve loped countrie s and are retrospective studies on selected gastric biopsy(More)
It has been demonstrated that there is difference in the induction of apoptosis in LoVo cells by (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC), and (-)-epicatechin (EC). In this study, we explored changes in ceramide levels upon the three catechins-induced apoptosis in LoVo cells. Addition of C2- and C6-ceramide to LoVo cells mimicked(More)
The effects of ethanol on serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) receptor binding in rat and mouse brain were determined under in vitro conditions and in mouse brain following seven days of ethanol ingestion. 5-HT1A receptor characteristics were measured utilizing the agonist [3H]8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin ([ 3H]DPAT), and 5HT2 receptor-binding(More)
We have analyzed the expression of immunoglobulin lambda chains in the rat by hybridizing RNA from various sources with C lambda 1-like and C lambda 2-like sequences recovered from a rat genomic library. A 1.0 kb lambda 2-like sequence is readily detected in lambda-producing hybridomas and in normal rat spleen RNAs; a 1.0 kb lambda 1-like message is also(More)
The IgG subclass and the IgM isotype response to immunization with particulate bovine tubular basement membrane (TBM) and adjuvants was studied in Brown-Norway rats receiving daily injections of a stable analogue of PGE1 (M-PGE1). M-PGE1 slightly reduced the average quantity of circulating TBM antibody as well as the average quantity of eluted IgG per gram(More)
We immunized a BALB/c mouse with the lambda-bearing rat IgG1 myeloma IR31, fused its spleen cells with the hybridoma parent line P3.X63.Ag8.653, and isolated a monoclonal antibody (G33/11) directed against rat immunoglobulin lambda chains. We used this antibody to classify two existing rat hybridomas as lambda-bearing proteins (D4.37HL.252 and PC61.5), and(More)
As part of a study of the effects of lithium carbonate on neurochemical function in man, platelet and lymphocyte adenylate cyclase activity and lymphocyte beta-adrenergic receptor binding characteristics were determined before and after 2 weeks of lithium treatment in 10 normal volunteers. Lithium had differential effects on platelet and lymphocyte(More)
