A spontaneous neurological mutation was detected in a colony of Sprague Dawley rats. The animals developed a progressive neurological syndrome characterized by tremor (which appeared at the age of 1 month), ataxia (at 4 months), immobility episodes (after 5-6 months), audiogenic seizures and hindlimb paralysis (after 10 months).

Ca2+ influx across the sea urchin sperm plasma membrane is a necessary step during the egg jelly-induced acrosome reaction. There is pharmacological evidence for the involvement of Ca2+ channels in this influx, but their presence has not been directly demonstrated because of the small size of this cell. Sea urchin sperm Ca2+ channels are being studied by(More)
When a highly purified preparation of rat liver insulin receptor is incubated with trypsin, the receptor develops hydrolytic activity towards N alpha-benzoyl-L-arginine ethyl ester, N alpha-p-tosyl-L-arginine methyl ester, and N alpha-benzoyl-DL-arginine-p-nitroanilide, (compounds which are synthetic substrates of trypsin). The activity toward N(More)
