Identification and characterization of clonal NK-like cells from channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus).
TcR alpha, beta, and gamma chain negative cytotoxic NK-like cells were cloned from alloantigen-stimulated PBL obtained from nai;ve channel catfish. Stimulation with allogeneic cells and growthExpand

Course and composition of the nerves that supply the mandibular teeth of the rat
The rodent dentition has become an important model for investigations of interactions between dental tissues and peripheral neurons. Although experimental nerve injury has been widely used for suchExpand

Uptake and transepithelial transport of nerve growth factor in suckling rat ileum
Nerve growth factor (NGF) is necessary for the development of sympathetic and some sensory neurons. Milk may be a source of NGF for suckling young, but sites of intestinal absorption of the proteinExpand

Immunocytochemical evidence that most sensory neurons of the rat molar pulp express receptors for both glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor and nerve growth factor.
Most pulpal afferent neurons have cytochemical features in common with the class of nociceptors that express neuropeptides and respond to NGF, while very few bind the plant lectin IB4, a widely usedExpand

Heterogeneity of Channel Catfish CTL with Respect to Target Recognition and Cytotoxic Mechanisms Employed1
Two types of catfish alloantigen-dependent cytotoxic T cells were cloned from PBL from a fish immunized in vivo and stimulated in vitro with the allogeneic B cell line 3B11. Because these are theExpand

Acetylcholinesterase in the developing ferret retina.
The function of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is to terminate the action of acetylcholine at the cholinergic synapse. Recent evidence suggests additional roles for acetylcholinesterase as a peptidaseExpand

Effects of postnatal anti-nerve growth factor serum exposure on development of apical nerves of the rat molar.
The present study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that development of the pulpal innervation is dependent on nerve growth factor (NGF). Newborn rats were given subcutaneous injections of aExpand

Quantitative study of the apical nerve fibers of adult and juvenile rat molars
The rat molar has become an important model for studies of interactions between nerves and the pulp‐dentin complex, yet there is only limited quantitative information on the number and sizeExpand

Nerve growth factor and epidermal growth factor in mouse submandibular glands: identical diurnal changes and rates of secretagogue-induced synthesis.
The granular convoluted tubule cells of the mouse submandibular gland contain high concentrations of nerve growth factor (NGF) and epidermal growth factor (EGF). Levels of the two growth factorsExpand

A model experimental system for monitoring changes in sensory neuron phenotype evoked by tooth injury
The dental pulp is a favorable model for studies of interactions between nociceptive sensory neurons and their peripheral target tissues. In the present study, we retrogradely labeled pulpal afferentExpand
