(1)In order to study how hippocampal pyramidal cells transform a steady depolarization into discharges, CA1 pyramids (n = 32) were injected with 1.5 s long pulses of constant depolarizing current. (2) The firing in response to weak currents was in most cells, characterized by low frequency (0.2–5 Hz), slowly increasing depolarizations preceding each action(More)
1. In this study we have measured the thresholds of action potentials and some properties of e.p.s.p.s (excitatory post-synaptic potentials) produced by activation of distal and proximal dendritic synapses in CA1 pyramidal cells in rat hippocampal slices. 2. Simultaneous intracellular and extracellular electrophysiological recordings were made from(More)
(1) In order to compare responses to dendritic vs. somatic depolarization, CA1 pyramidal cells in rat hippocampal slices were stimulated by iontophoresis of glutamate to sensitive spots in the dendrites, and by somatic current injection. (2) Low intensities of either stimulus elicited slow repetitive firing. Each action potential was preceded by a slow(More)
Although nerve cell membranes are often assumed to be uniform with respect to electrical properties, there is increasing evidence for compartmentalization into subdomains with heterogeneous impacts on the overall cell function. Such microdomains are characterized by specific sets of proteins determining their functional properties. Recently, clustering of(More)
We have studied the therapeutic efficacy of131I-labelled monoclonal antibody 123C3 in human small-cell lung carcinoma xenografts established from the NCI-H69 cell line in nude mice. Several radiation does were administered intraperitoneally and different treatment schedules were tested. The maximal tolerated dose, 2×500 μCi, resulted in complete remission(More)
