1. We have studied the effects of muscarinic cholinoceptor agonists and specific antagonists on both phasic activity and basal tone of the isolated intravesical ureter of the pig by means of isometric techniques in vitro. 2. Acetylcholine in the presence and absence of physostigmine increased both phasic activity and basal tone of ureteral strips in a(More)
The aim of the present study was to determine the distribution and density of catecholaminergic nerve fibres and cells in the equine ureter by using immunohistochemical techniques to localise the enzyme tyrosine-hydroxylase (TH). TH-immunoreactive (TH-IR) nerve fibres entered the wall of the ureter as adventitial nerve trunks accompanying the blood vessels.(More)
The stereospecific L-2-haloacid dehalogenase DehCI from Pseudomonas CBS3 was tagged with a peptide tail containing six histidines and overexpressed in Escherichia coli. The His-tagged protein was purified after a single-step affinity chromatography on Zn(2+)-chelating sepharose. The activity of the modified protein was tested after immobilization on(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have estimated that 10% to 23% of workers exposed to laboratory animals report symptoms of laboratory animal allergy. OBJECTIVES To determine the level of occupational sensitization in workers exposed to laboratory animals and to develop a diagnosis system based on a multiallergen IgE immunoblot. METHODS A total of 75 workers exposed(More)
