The localization of gamma-aminobutyric acid-A (GABAA) receptors (GABAA-R) in the lower brainstem of the rat was examined by means of in situ hybridization histochemistry using an oligonucleotide probe to the sequence of the alpha 1 subunit (GABAA-R alpha 1). Strongly labeled neurons were found in the cranial motor nuclei, the dorsal motor nucleus of the(More)
Postnatal developmental changes of preproenkephalin (PPE) gene expression in rat brainstem neurons were studied by in situ hybridization histochemistry. On the basis of PPE mRNA expression, brainstem neurons were categorized into three types: 1) type I neurons were characterized by constant or increasing expression of PPE mRNA during postnatal development;(More)
The presence of inhibitors in urine interferes with the enzymatic reaction of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for detection of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV). To remove inhibitors, HCMV virions in urine were precipitated with polyethylene glycol, or DNA was extracted from urine by the use of glass powder and subjected to PCR followed by Southern blot(More)
