Glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), the synthesizing enzyme for the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), has been localized in a large number of neuronal somata within the nucleus reticularis thalami (NR) of rat brain by light microscopic immunocytochemical methods. GAD-positive staining of neuronal somata and proximal dendrites is observed in(More)
TeraGrid is a national-scale computational science facility supported through a partnership among thirteen institutions, with funding from the US National Science Foundation [1]. Initially created through a Major Research Equipment Facilities Construction (MREFC [2]) award in 2001, the TeraGrid facility began providing production computing, storage,(More)
Thirty-two patients with chronic low back pain were treated three times at weekly intervals with rotational manipulation. Patients with femoral or sciatic root pain were included provided they did not exhibit root compression signs. Background therapy of codeine phosphate was administered throughout. There was a significant increase in spinal flexion(More)
L-Glutamate decarboxylase (GAD, EC 4.1.1.15), the enzyme which catalyzes the alpha-decarboxylation of L-glutamate to form gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), was localized both light and electron microscopically in rat substantia nigra by an immunoperoxidase method. Large amounts of GAD-positive reaction produce were seen throughout the substantia nigra in(More)
Glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), the enzyme that synthesizes the transmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), has previously been localized within synaptic terminals in rat spinal cord by immunocytochemistry. In the present study, GAD was localized within the somata and dendrites of GABA neurons following colchicine injections into rat lumbar spinal cord.(More)
Choline acetyltransferase (EC 2.3.1.6) is the biosynthetic enzyme for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. To isolate choline acetyltransferase cDNA clones, a cDNA library was constructed from poly(A)+ RNA of Drosophila melanogaster heads, these being one of the richest known sources of the enzyme. By screening the cDNA library with a mixture of three(More)
