Two forms of pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptides with 38 (PACAP38) and 27 residues (PACAP27) respectively were recently isolated from ovine hypothalamic tissues. The N-terminal 28 amino acids sequence of PACAP was found to have 68% homology with porcine vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP). In order to determine whether the primary structure(More)
Dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin and related metabolites were measured in the brain of meadow voles and mice after infection with Trypanosoma brucei gambiense with the goal of understanding the neurochemical changes accompanying infection with this parasite. Serotonin and 5-HIAA levels both fell by 26%, and HVA levels rose by 56%, in vole brains during(More)
The brains of rats infected with Trypanosoma brucei gambiense were analyzed for their content of dopamine, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), serotonin, and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA). In the caudate of infected rats, dopamine levels increased by 34% and 5-HIAA levels by 20%. DOPAC levels declined by 30% in the caudate, but this change was(More)
Serotonin (5-HT) levels fell by 21% in the mid-brain-thalamus-hypothalamus (MTH) region of the rabbit brain after chronic infection with the protozoan Trypanosoma brucei gambiense. 5-HT did not decrease significantly in the caudate/putamen (CP) or the pons/medulla (PM) region. 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels were unchanged in the MTH and(More)
