For several years, Colorado State University has been documenting flow and water quality conditions in Colorado's Lower Arkansas River Valley with the goal of providing data and models that water users and managers can use to enhance both agriculture and the environment in the Valley. Extensive measurements are being made in the field, and some previously(More)
Mouse N18TG2 neuroblastoma and rat C6 glioma cell lines were injected into male nude mice, and the tumors were passaged serially. At each generation, tumors were analyzed for delta opioid binding using [3H][D-Ala2,D-Leu5]enkephalin and for sigma 1 and sigma 2 binding with 1,3-[3H]di-o-tolylguanidine in the presence and absence of 1 microM pentazocine.(More)
Previous in vivo studies revealed that buprenorphine can down-regulate mu and up-regulate delta2 and kappa1 opioid receptors in adult and neonatal rat brain. To assess gestational effects of buprenorphine on offspring, pregnant rats were also administered this drug and opioid receptor binding parameters (Kd and Bmax values) were measured by homologous(More)
In May of 2011, a live mass stranding of 26 short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) occurred in the lower Florida Keys. Five surviving whales were transferred from the original stranding site to a nearby marine mammal rehabilitation facility where they were constantly attended to by a team of volunteers. Bacteria cultured during the routine(More)
Previous in vivo studies revealed that the mixed agonist-antagonist buprenorphine can down-regulate mu and up-regulate delta 2 and kappa 1 opioid receptors in rat brain. In this report brain regional differences in opioid receptor adaptation were addressed. Rats received i.p. injections with buprenorphine (0.5-2.5 mg/kg) and were killed 20 h later.(More)
Opioid agonists inhibit DNA synthesis in C6 rat glioma cells that express opioid receptors, induced by desipramine (DMI). This inhibition was not observed in cells that were not treated with DMI, and thus did not express opioid-binding sites. Endothelin, a known mitogen, increased thymidine incorporation dose dependently (up to 1.7-fold) in DMI-treated C6(More)
Male germ cells are quite sensitive to interruption in blood flow. Eight weeks after subjection to 45 minutes of testicular ischemia, the spermatogenic epithelium of the rat remains significantly damaged, though other cell types are well preserved. The authors evaluated the testicular recovery of the rats at 8 and 72 weeks after the 45-minute period of warm(More)
Genomic epidemiologic data, increasingly supported by clinical outcomes results, strongly suggest that overactivity of angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) may underlie most age-related diseases. Angiotensin II, the main product of ACE, is a pleiotropic hormone, capable of serving as a neurotransmitter, growth factor, angiogenesis factor, vasoconstrictor,(More)
Exposure of C6 glial cell cultures to desipramine induced the appearance of opioid receptors and up-regulated sigma receptors. Opioid binding was demonstrated with 3H-etorphine and 3H-dihydromorphine (DHM), but was not observed with the mu, delta and kappa ligands 3H-DAMGE, 3H-DADLE or 3H-(-)ethylketocyclazocine in the presence of specific blockers,(More)
