In brains of the rabbit, pig, and human, expression of the high-affinity Na+-D-glucose cotransporter SGLT1 and of the protein RS1, which alters the activity of SGLT1, was demonstrated. In situ hybridization showed that SGLT1 and RS1 are transcribed in pyramidal cells of brain cortex and hippocampus and in Purkinje cells of cerebellum. In neurons of pig(More)
Transfer of glutamine between astrocytes and neurons is an essential part of the glutamate-glutamine cycle in the brain. Transport of glutamine was investigated in primary cultures of astrocytes and neurons and compared to glutamine transport in cell lines with glial and neuronal properties. Glutamine uptake in astrocytes was mainly mediated by general(More)
The enzyme argininosuccinate synthetase (ASS) initiates the metabolic pathway leading from L-citrulline to L-arginine, the only physiological substrate of all isoforms of nitric oxide synthases. The presence of ASS in glial cells in vivo was investigated by immunohistochemical methods in a model of rat brain inflammation. Phosphate-buffered saline or a(More)
Data-parallel processing of multi-dimensional functional/immutable arrays is characterized by a fundamental trade-off between software engineering principles on the one hand and runtime performance concerns on the other hand. Whereas the former demand code to be written in a generic style abstracting from structural properties of arrays as much as possible,(More)
