High-frequency stimulation (HFS) of subthalamic nucleus (STN) is a therapy for late-stage Parkinson's disease. Its mechanisms of action are not yet fully understood. In the present study, gene expression analyses were performed in a rat model of Parkinson's disease, i.e. striatal 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesion. Using microarrays, gene expression was(More)
In rat models of Parkinson's disease, injections of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) into different areas of the basal ganglia result in dopaminergic neurodegeneration in the substantia nigra. The extent and time course of the dopaminergic lesions varies between the models. While the effects on neurons have been extensively studied, little is known about the(More)
The current study determined the extracellular content of glutamate, 10 additional amino acids, lactate, glucose and some antioxidants in a rodent model of malignant glioma, its peritumoral space and the adjacent cortex. RG2 tumors were induced in the right frontal cortex of Fischer-344 rats (n=10) by a standardized procedure to obtain a maximum sagittal(More)
The active transport of sperm through the female genital tract is a very important factor in the fertilisation process. There is conflicting evidence as to whether seminal plasma has a positive or a negative effect on reproductive performance regarding the sperm transport in the female genital tract. In this study, we investigated if the perfused swine(More)
IMMUNOELECTROPHORESIS was used for studies on immunological cross-reactions between both Schistosoma mansoni (S. m.) intermediate host snails Biomphalaria glabrata and Biomphalaria alexandrina. The preparation of antigens and their corresponding antisera from hepato-pancreas of S. m. infected and non infected snails was described as the homologous reactions(More)
IMMUNOELECTROPHORESIS was applied for cross-wise checking of the different stages in the life cycle of schistosoma mansoni with extracts of hepato-pancreas from its intermediate host snails Biomphalaria glabrata and Biomphalaria alexandrina. Only few fractions were common to non infected snail organ and parasite development stage, while more crossreactions(More)
Designing microarray experiments, scientists are often confronted with the question of pooling due to financial constraints, but discussion of the validity of pooling tends toward a sub-pooling recommendation. Since complete pooling protocols can be considered part of sub-pooling designs, gene expression data from three complete pooling experiments were(More)
Abnormal neuronal activity in the subthalamic nucleus (STN) plays a crucial role in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease (PD). Although altered extracellular potassium concentration ([K+]o) and sensitivity to [K+]o modulates neuronal activity, little is known about the potassium balance in the healthy and diseased STN. In vivo measurements of [K+]o(More)
