The effects of nerve growth factor (NGF) and dibutyryl cyclic AMP (DBC) on the density of cytoskeletal structures in cultured dorsal root ganglia were examined using morphometric techniques. After 24 hr in culture, NGF-treated neurites were longer than either DBC-treated or control neurites. At 48 hr, neurites produced in response to NGF and DBC were of(More)
A cluster of tuberculosis cases in a rural community in Arkansas persisted from 1991 to 1999. The cluster had 13 members, 11 linked epidemiologically. Old records identified 24 additional patients for 40 linked cases during a 54-year period. Residents of this neighborhood represent a population at high risk who should be considered for tuberculin testing(More)
Our previous immunofluorescence studies on neurons have demonstrated the presence of myosin in regions of neurons which contained actin. To determine if a system similar to the troponin complex of striated muscle is present in neurons, antibody shown to be specific for the calcium-binding component of troponin (troponin-C) was applied to cultures of(More)
This practitioner report describes a moor-and turf-fire that occurred in 2011 at the Dutch-German border and was engaged by forces both from the Netherlands and Germany. All involved emergency management organizations were facing interoperability issues when it came to cross-border cooperation, although cooperation handbooks were already in use and the(More)
We have modified the Lowicryl K4M low-temperature dehydration and embedding procedure for immunoelectron microscopy to provide improved ultrastructural detail and facilitate the localization of actin and tubulin in isolated rat adrenocortical cells, chick spinal cord with attached dorsal root ganglia (SC-DRG), and cultured dorsal root ganglia (DRG).
