The adenohypophysial cell types in three species of sciaenid teleosts were identified using a combination of classical histochemical techniques and immunocytochemistry with antisera raised against piscine and human pituitary hormones. In general greater specificity for the different cell types was observed with antisera to the piscine pituitary hormones(More)
Sternopygus macrurus of both sexes were injected with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) or saline. Electric organ discharge (EOD) frequency rose after hCG injections in females and gradually declined to baseline levels over the next few weeks. EOD changes in males were more complex and variable; most males showed an initial minor rise in EOD frequency(More)
Tetramethylpyrazine (TMP), the active principle in Ligusticum wallichii, D-timolol, and L-timolol were compared for their effects on retinal and choroidal blood flow (RCBF), blood pressure (BP), and heart rate (HR). TMP (10 increased RCBF by 44% and did not affect systemic BP or HR. D-Timolol (4 iv) had a tendency to increase RCBF but did(More)
L-Timolol (0.4 mg/kg) reduced significantly retinal blood flow (17%), systemic blood pressure (18-20%) and heart rate (28%) in the rabbit. D-Timolol (4.0 mg/kg) increased retinal blood flow slightly (9%) and did not significantly affect systemic blood pressure or heart rate. Since D-timolol is effective in reducing intraocular pressure, these results(More)
Although it is essential that intraocular pressure (IOP) be reduced in glaucoma treatment, it is also vitally important to provide sufficient blood flow to eye tissues so that healthy visual field is maintained. It is possible for an agent to reduce IOP and blood supply to the eye. In that case, glaucoma appears to be under control since IOP has been(More)
To investigate the effects of human anti-BAFF scFv-Fc against the hsBAFF, ICR mice were randomly divided into six groups: control, hsBAFF (1 mg x kg(-1)), hsBAFF (1 mg x kg(-1)) + Ab (1 mg x kg(-1)), hsBAFF (1 mg x kg(-1)) + Ab (2 mg x kg(-1)), hsBAFF (1 mg x kg(-1)) + human IgG (1 mg x kg(-1)) and hsBAFF (1 mg x kg(-1)) + human IgG (2 mg x kg(-1)) groups.(More)
