Opsin expression is extremely suppressed by carotenoid deprivation in Drosophila. Carotenoid replacement in deprived flies promotes the recovery of visual pigment with an increase in opsin, as well as the chromophore 11-cis-3-hydroxyretinal. Here, we show that opsin mRNA and opsin peptide in an intermediate step of posttranslational processing were present(More)
Three cases are reported in which large granulomas developed 13 to 21 months respectively after removal of intracranial meningiomas (2 cases) and after operation for an anterior communicating artery aneurysm. In each of the cases oxidized cellulose had been used and left in place for haemostasis. All of the granulomas acted as space-occupying lesions. They(More)
PURPOSE Blockade of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)(2A) receptors reportedly mediates or modulates the ability of isoflurane to produce immobility during noxious stimulation and would thereby influence MAC (the minimum alveolar concentration required to suppress movement in response to noxious stimulation in 50% of subjects). However, no data are yet available(More)

(2006) Interfacial behavior of sulforhodamine 101 at the polarized water/1,2-dichloroethane interface studied by spectroelectrochemical techniques. Forskolin-induced clearance of the fluorescent dye sulforhodamine from rat parotid intralobular duct lumen: visualization of the secretory function under a confocal laser scanning microscope. Carbachol-induced(More)
The transfer of cefoperazone (CPZ) into cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), brain or brain tumor tissue was studied in 13 cases with brain tumor, chronic subdural hematoma and benign intracranial hypertension in 1982. The peak values of CPZ in serum came up immediately after its rapid intravenous administration and then decreased exponentially. The concentration of(More)
