We have developed an easy and fast method to semiquantify low levels of mRNA from small amounts of brain tissues based on nonradioactive reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The regulation of mRNA for the growth associated protein GAP-43/B-50 and the homeodomain protein islet-1 was examined in the facial nucleus of the rat after a(More)
1. Nerve-free rabbit aortic strips were exposed to 1.18muM 3H-(+/-)noradrenaline for 30 min. When either MAO or COMT was inhibited, far more O-methylated (MAO inhibited) than deaminated metabolites (COMT inhibited) were formed during the incubation. The accumulation of unchanged amine in the extraneuronal stores was inversely related to the rate of(More)
Enzymatic hydrolysis led to improve functional properties and biological activity of protein by-products, which can be further used as protein ingredients for food and feed applications. The effects of proteolytic enzyme modification of egg-yolk protein preparation (YP) and white protein preparation (WP), obtained as the by-products left during the course(More)
The hypothesis is based upon: a) My observed clustering of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) cases at places with abnormal geomagnetic fields (GMF) and/or electromagnetic fields (EMF); b) recorded GMF with pulsations matching the breathing frequencies of infants; c) the reported immature development of increased dendritic spine density in the brain stem(More)
Rabbit aortic strips (nerve-free, reserpine-pretreated or normal) whose noradrenaline-metabolizing enzymes were inhibited (by in vitro treatment with 0.5 mM pargyline for 30 min and by the presence of 0.1 mM U-0521) were exposed to 1.18 muM 3H-(+/-)noradrenaline for 30 min (in most experiments). At the end of the incubation some strips were used for(More)
Reserpine-pretreated or normal rabbit aortic strips (whose noradrenaline-metabolizing enzymes were inhibited by treatment with 0.5 mM pargyline and by the presence of 0.1 mM U-0521) were incubated with 1.18 muM labelled noradrenaline for 30 min. Subsequently, strips were either analysed or washed out with amine-free solution for 240 to 250 min. From the(More)
