Tetanus-induced long-term potentiation (LTP) of population action potentials at 22 degrees C was investigated in area CA1 of hippocampal slices prepared from hibernating (HH) and warm-acclimated Turkish hamsters (WH) and rats. LTP elicited at this temperature was significantly stronger in HH slices compared to WH and rat slices. Hibernation-related(More)
The effects of adenosine on synaptic transmission were studied with extracellular recordings of stimulus-induced population action potentials in area CA1 of hippocampal slices prepared from hibernating (HH) and warm-acclimated Turkish hamsters (WH) and rats. In HH as well as WH and rat slices, adenosine generally reduced the population spike amplitude and(More)
The effects of histamine on synaptic transmission were studied at 37 degrees C and 22 degrees C with extracellular recordings of stimulus-induced population action potentials in area CA1 of hippocampal slices prepared from hibernating (HTH) and warm-acclimated Turkish hamsters (WTH) and rats. In rat slices, application of 50 microM histamine had no effects(More)
A 76-year old patient was referred to our Oncology Unit due to hepatosplenomegaly, anemia, thrombocytopenia, eosinophilia, elevation of lactat dehydrogenase and leucocytosis with occurrence of myeloid and erythroid precursors in the peripheral blood. Histopathological examination of the bone marrow and molecular genetics showing a c-kit-D816V-mutation(More)
BACKGROUND Acanthosis nigricans (AN) comprises a broad spectrum of etiologic subtypes. The underlying pathomechanisms have not yet been completely clarified. We present a patient affected with a syndromelike AN subtype including disturbed epidermopoiesis as evidenced by immunohistologic findings and in situ hybridization. OBSERVATIONS A 54-year-old white(More)
BACKGROUND Hydroxyurea (HU) is a good-controllable and well-tolerated cytostatic drug. CASE REPORT Two patients with a myeloproliferative disease, who suffered from fever, lung symptoms and reticulonodular infiltrates on both sides after 4 and 10 weeks of HU medication, are introduced. One patient additionally presented with multiple, 1-cm diameter,(More)
