1. Diel vertical migration (DVM) is a widespread phenomenon among marine and freshwater organisms and many studies with various taxa have sought to understand its adaptive significance. Among crustacean zooplankton and juveniles of some fish species DVM is accepted widely as an antipredator behaviour, but little is known about its adaptive value for(More)
The distribution of radioactivity in association with sympathetic nerve terminals and intraneuronal organelles 30 min after the administration of tritiated norepinephrine (NE-(3)H) was studied by electron microscope radioautography with recently developed quantitative methods of analysis reported in the accompanying paper (Salpeter et al., 1969). Nerves(More)
Mouse and rat retinae were examined by the peroxidase-anti-peroxidase technique of immunocytochemistry using an antiserum against glucagon. The immunoreactivity was found in the cells of the ganglion cell layer and inner nuclear layer, including Müller cells. These observations may indicate that glucagon or a similar peptide is important in neuromodulation(More)
The ultrastructure and functional capacity of mitochondria from hearts of exhausted guinea pigs were compared to those from rested animals. Electron micrographs of heart ventricles were examined for ultrastructural alterations, and functional capacity was studied by oxygen polarography. General swelling of mitochondria from exhausted animals was indicated(More)
Immunocytochemistry using peroxidase antiperoxidase (PAP) techniques showed insulin-like immunoreactivity in the human retina, and in the mouse retina and optic nerve. The immunoreaction product was seen in the inner nuclear, ganglion cell, outer and inner plexiform layers of the retinas, and in glial cell bodies of the optic nerve. A similar staining(More)
