Temporary replacement of glucose by 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG; but not sucrose) is followed by long-term potentiation of CA1 synaptic transmission (2-DG LTP), which is Ca2+-dependent and is prevented by dantrolene or N-methyl--aspartate (NMDA) antagonists. To clarify the mechanism of action of 2-DG, we monitored [Ca2+]i while replacing glucose with 2-DG or(More)
Courtship vibratory signals can be air-borne or substrate-borne. They convey distinct and species-specific information from one individual to its prospective partner. Here, we study the substrate-borne vibratory signals generated by the abdominal quivers of the Drosophila male during courtship; these vibrations travel through the ground towards courted(More)
Production of two eicosanoids derived from lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase activities: leukotriene B4 (LTB4) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), respectively, have been simultaneously determined in turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) blood leucocyte and kidney macrophage supernatants by a reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system coupled with a(More)
