We report a comparative immunofluorescence and immunoblotting study of GFA protein, the subunit of glial filaments, in nonmammalian vertebrates. The study was conducted with polyclonal antibodies raised to human and shark antigen and with monoclonal antibodies isolated from mice immunized with chicken and bovine antigen. With the exception of cyclostomes,(More)
The paper deals with a detailed histochemical mapping of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) in the diencephalon and mesencephalon of Uromastix hardwickii. In AChE in contrast to BChE preparations, most of the nuclei reveal intense activity Interestingly, the hypothalamic nuclei demonstrate positive reactions to AChE but totally(More)
Chlorpromazine (CPZ) administration resulted in an increase in acid phosphatase (AcP) activity in the lamina VI of the neocortex, pyramidal cell layer, granular cell layer and hilus of the hippocampal formation. Diazepam (DZ) administration also induced an increase in AcP activity in the lamina VI of the neocortex and in the pyramidal cell layer of the(More)
The present study deals with the detailed distribution of acid phosphatase (AcP) and simple esterase (SE) in different layers of the neocortex and hippocampal formation of the mouse brain. The neurons, in general, had moderate to intense enzyme activity for AcP and mild to moderate activity for SE. The AcP activity dominated in the neuronal population as(More)
The paper deals with a detailed histochemical mapping of adenosine triphosphatase (ATPase) and 5'-Nucleotidase (5'-N) in the telencephalon and diencephalon of mouse. The majority of brain matter nuclei demonstrated high activity for ATPase while, in contrast, only a few nuclei revealed high intensity of 5'-N. In general, the neuronal population dominated in(More)
The present study demonstrates the distribution pattern of beta-galactosidase (BGL) in the forebrain and mid-brain of the mouse. Mild enzyme activity was observed in the neurons of the forebrain and mid-brain. Interestingly, strong enzyme activity in some nuclei was due to the presence of myelinated fibers. Most of the fiber tracts and commissures showed(More)
The study deals with the histoenzymological mapping of acid phosphatase and 5-nucleotidase in the various nuclei of diencephalon and mesencephalon of Uromastix hardwickii. Almost all the nuclei and the fiber tracts reveal positive activity, both for acid phosphatase and 5-nucleotidase, althouh the intensity of the enzymatic activity presents great(More)
