The effects of serum and/or plasma of three crustacean species on cellular morphology of homologous and heterologous hemocytes were observed using an in vitro short-term culture system. When hemocytes of the spiny lobster, Panulirus japonicus, isolated from hemolymph were mixed with serum of the same species, rapid cytolysis occurred in hyaline and(More)
Paraquat (PQ) is a widely used non-selective contact herbicide shown to produce memory and learning deficits after acute and repeated exposure similar to those induced in Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the complete mechanisms through which it induces these effects are unknown. On the other hand, cholinergic and glutamatergic systems, mainly in the(More)
Cadmium is a toxic compound reported to produce cognitive dysfunctions, though the mechanisms involved are unknown. In a previous work we described how cadmium blocks cholinergic transmission and induces greater cell death in primary cholinergic neurons from the basal forebrain. It also induces cell death in SN56 cholinergic neurons from the basal forebrain(More)
