OBJECTIVE To identify, localize, and determine M1/M2 polarization of epidydimal adipose tissue (eAT) macrophages (Phis) during high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Male C57BL/6 mice were fed an HFD (60% fat kcal) or low-fat diet (LFD) (10% fat kcal) for 8 or 12 weeks. eATMPhis (F4/80(+) cells) were characterized by in vivo(More)
The distribution of voltage-sensitive sodium channels on axons in the dorsal and ventral spinal roots of the dystrophic mouse 129/ReJ-Lama2dy was determined via immunocytochemistry. In these nerves there are regions in which Schwann cells fail to proliferate and myelinate axons in a normal manner, leaving bundles of closely packed large-diameter amyelinated(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of TNF-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) in pathological adipose tissue (AT) remodeling and complications of obesity. METHODS Wild type (WT) and TWEAK knockout (KO) mice were fed normal diet (ND) or a high fat diet (HFD) for up to 17 weeks. Adipocyte death was induced using an established transgenic mouse model of(More)
3H-fucose was injected intravenously or intravitreously into albino rats. After time intervals of 10, 40, and 50 min, 1, 1.5, and 4 hr, 1, 3, and 7 days, and 1, 2, and 4 weeks after injection, the animals were sacrificed by intracardiac perfusion with glutaraldehyde. Samples of the ciliary body were prepared for light and electron microscope(More)
