Protein gene product 9.5 (PGP), a ubiquitin hydrolase, is abundant in the nervous system. To investigate the ultrastructural localization of PGP and the regulation of its expression, we performed electron microscopic immunocytochemistry and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) on normal and transected rat sciatic nerves. In normal(More)
Denervation of skin has a profound influence on epidermis; epidermal thinning was a consistent finding in rats. However, it is not clear whether the degree of epidermal thinning was similar in the region receiving the same innervation. In mice, how early epidermal nerves were degenerated after nerve injury remained unknown. To address these issues, we(More)
We evaluated the influence of skin innervation on the epidermis in mice. The rich innervation of skin was demonstrated by immunocytochemistry with protein gene product 9.5, a ubiquitin carboxy hydrolase. Protein gene product-immunoreactive nerve fibers were in the epidermis, subepidermal plexus, dermal nerve trunks, and nerve terminals around sweat glands.(More)
A rare case of toxic shock syndrome developing after an elective septoplasty and partial turbinectomy is reported. The sterile vaseline gauze packing acting as a "nasal tampon" is postulated as the mechanism of insult. The symptomatology, investigation and management of this case are discussed. Early recognition and appropriate treatment may avert the(More)
Through the use of multi-modal methods, the purpose of this study was to develop and assess measurement properties of an instrument evaluating specific sexual behaviors of college students and the role alcohol intoxication plays in one's intention to participate in these behaviors. A modified version of N. Krause's instrument development process was applied(More)
