The cellular distribution of 65 and 70 kD heat shock proteins (HSPs) was studied in the normal rat kidney and after acute tubular necrosis (ATN) induced by inorganic mercury (HgCl2). In the normal kidney the 65 kD HSP was found in the cytoplasm of podocytes and proximal convoluted tubules, whereas the 70 kD HSP was located in nuclei and cytoplasm of(More)
Despite tuberculosis resurgence and extensive dendritic cell (DC) research, there are no in vivo studies evaluating DC within regional lymphoid tissue during airways infection with virulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) H37Rv. Using DC-specific antibodies, immunocytochemistry, flow cytometry and Ziehl-Neelsen (ZN) for bacilli staining, we searched for(More)
Scarce information exists about the role of lung antigen-presenting cells (APCs) in vivo during pulmonary tuberculosis. As APCs activate cellular immunity, following intratracheal inoculation with virulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis, we assessed in situ lung APC recruitment, distribution, granuloma involvement, morphology and mycobacterial burden by using(More)
In rodents the vomeronasal system plays an important role in modulating the hypothalamic control of gonadotropin secretion. It is accepted that the anatomical pathways by which the vomeronasal organ influences the neuroendocrine aspects of the reproductive behavior involves a polysynaptic system, including the accessory olfactory bulb, the 'vomeronasal(More)
Recently the association between the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and smooth muscle lesions has been described in immunosuppressed children but it is infrequent in adults. The role of EBV in the pathogenesis of these lesions is obscure. We presents a 28 year old man with end stage renal disease transplanted in 1994. Two years later he developed several nodular(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been demonstrated in association with cases of Hodgkin's disease (HD) indicating that, in at least in some cases, EBV may play a pathogenic role in the development of HD. To determine the prevalence of EBV in HD in a Mexican adult population, we studied 39 formalin-fixed and/or B-5, paraffin embedded samples of patients with(More)
A possible sex difference in the mean sagittal area of the anterior commissure (AC) was investigated in normal, newborn-castrated, and perinatally-androgenized rats. A second experiment included castrated adult rats from each sex exposed to testosterone twelve days before sacrifice. In normal rats, as well as in those exposed to testosterone as adults, no(More)
