Arachidonyl ethanolamide, anandamide (ANA) was administered to male rats via a single i.p. injection at a dose of 0.02 mg/kg. In an parallel experiment ANA injection was preceded by the injection of SR 141716 (1.0 mg/kg), a selective and potent cannabinoid receptor antagonist. We observed using FOS protein immunocytochemistry that the parvocellular part of(More)
It has been shown that the main psychoactive component of marihuana, delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has mainly inhibitory effects on the regulation of reproduction. Recently, the purification and availability of the endogenous ligand of the cannabinoid receptor, arachidonyl ethanolamide, anandamide, (ANA) and its specific long lasting antagonist, the SR(More)
The method described in this paper is available for removal of antibodies retained by tissue antigen after immunohistochemical staining. Its application to the antehypophysis has allowed the successive or the simultaneous localization of two different hormones.
The distribution of supraependymal nerve fibers (SEF) containing serotonin (5-HT) was investigated immunohistochemically in the forebrain of the guinea pig. The highest densities of immunoreactive axons were found in the pars centralis and the inferior horn of the lateral ventricle and also in the superior part of the third ventricle. Because of the special(More)
In this study, we have prepared antiidiotypic antibodies specific of human prolactin receptors (PRL-R) in order to localize these receptors in breast cancer. Antiidiotypic antibodies were prepared using anti-human prolactin (anti-hPRL) sera obtained from New Zealand rabbits. 25 breast cancer were PRL-R positive using radio receptor assay. For(More)
The presence of neuropeptide Y (NPY) and its C-terminal flanking peptide (C-PON) was described by immunohistochemistry in human testes. The immunopositive material was visualized in the spermatogenic elements of the seminiferous tubules. More NPY occurred in the younger testis and more C-PON in the older ones. NPY positive material was present mainly in the(More)
In tropical and subtropical areas, schistosomiasis may cause anatomic anomalies of the genital organs responsible for permanent or reversible infertility. Furthermore, it has been suggested that this parasitic infection may have adverse consequences on the endocrine system. To specify the effects of schistosomiasis on endocrine function, production of(More)
