Using mAb technology (Wayner, E. A., W. G. Carter, R. Piotrowicz, and T. J. Kunicki. 1988. J. Cell Biol. 107:1881-1891), we have identified a new fibronectin receptor that is identical to the integrin receptor alpha 4 beta 1. mAbs P3E3, P4C2, and P4G9 recognized epitopes on the alpha 4 subunit and completely inhibited the adhesion of peripheral blood and(More)
Several types of short axon cells of the mammalian olfactory bulb have been described after Golgi impregnation. Two of these types have been observed in our material after treatment with the NADPH-diaphorase procedure or after immunohistochemistry for neuropeptide-Y (NPY). The cells stained by the two procedures have similar morphologies and distributions.(More)
Cells interact with extracellular fibronectin (FN) via adhesive fibronectin receptors (FNRs) that are members of the very late antigens (VLAs) subgroup of the integrin family. In stationary fibroblasts, the FNR is highly organized and distributed identically to extracellular FN fibrils. However, in highly migratory neural crest cells and embryonic somatic(More)
Using conventional immunocytochemical techniques, we have examined the morphology and distribution of somatostatin-like immunoreactive neurons in the visual cortex of albino rats between the first postnatal day and maturity. In the adult, somatostatin-immunoreactive neurons were observed in layers II to VI but were concentrated in layers II and III. These(More)
Using immunocytochemistry, we have examined the morphology and distribution of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide-like immunoreactive neurons in the visual cortex of albino rats whose ages were closely spaced in time between the first postnatal day and adulthood. In the adult, immunoreactive neurons were located in layers II to VI but were concentrated in(More)
Immunocytochemical techniques were used to investigate the morphology and distribution of avian pancreatic polypeptide-like immunoreactive neurons in the visual cortex of albino rats at various ages from the first postnatal day to adulthood. In the adult, immunoreactive neurons were located in layers II to VI but were somewhat concentrated in the deeper(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, national and state/territory governments have undertaken an increasing number of initiatives to strengthen general practice and improve its links with the rest of the primary health care sector. This paper reviews how far these initiatives were contributing to a well functioning and comprehensive primary health care system during(More)
The region of the paraventricular nucleus-dorsal anterior hypothalamic area (PVN-DAHA) previously was implicated in the control of tonic FSH secretion. However, the role that this hypothalamic area plays in governing pulsatile FSH release is unknown. To examine this question, radiofrequency (RF) lesions were produced bilaterally in the PVN-DAHA of adult(More)
A calcium-activated neutral proteinase (CANP) resolved into three components has been partially purified from bovine brain. The method of isolation has resulted in 22,000, 7,100, and 8,000-fold purification for CANP I, II and III respectively. All three fractions require Ca2+ for activation. The characterization of the purified CANP I has shown that it is(More)
