We examined the interaction between ephrins and metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) receptors in the developing brain and cultured neurons. EphrinB2 coimmunoprecipitated with mGlu1a receptors, in all of the brain regions examined, and with mGlu5 receptors in the corpus striatum. In striatal slices, activation of ephrinB2 by a clustered form of its target(More)
Environmental microbes oscillate between feast and famine and need to carefully manage utilization, storage and conversion of reserve products to exploitable sources of carbon and energy. Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are storage polymers that serve bacteria as sources of food materials under physiological conditions of carbon demand. In order to obtain(More)
Chemical activities of hydrophobic substances can determine the windows of environmental conditions over which microbial systems function and the metabolic inhibition of microorganisms by benzene and other hydrophobes can, paradoxically, be reduced by compounds that protect against cellular water stress (Bhaganna et al. in Microb Biotechnol 3:701–716, 2010;(More)
The effects of vestibular stimuli on the vagal efferent complex were examined in cats under chloralose anasthesia. The results showed that two functionally distinct groups of vagal efferent fibres are excited by vestibular stimuli. The neural complex involved in the delayed vestibulo-vagal response (latency of 15-22 msec) lies at the orbital surface of the(More)
