Inappropriate activity of the complement cascade contributes to the pathophysiology of several neurodegenerative conditions. This study sought to determine if components of the complement cascade are synthesized in the retina following the development of ocular hypertension (OHT) and if complement accumulates in association with retinal ganglion cells.(More)
Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), which are extracellular DNA structures released from neutrophils, are described and characterized for the first time in fish using fluorescent confocal microscopy. Confocal images of fish neutrophil suspensions stained with 6'-diamino-2-phenylindole, dihydrochloride DNA fluorescent stain (DAPI) revealed the presence of(More)
Recent findings in mammals and fish have revealed that neutrophil nuclear material associated with cytoplasmic granular content is released in the form of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) that can trap and kill invading microorganisms in vitro and in vivo. To determine if a similar mechanism is present in chicken heterophils, hydrogen peroxide(More)
The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is an excellent model system for studies in developmental biology, genetics, and toxicology, and is increasingly gaining importance in the field of immunology. The use of whole zebrafish kidneys as source of neutrophils for degranulation assays and detection of neutrophil extracellular traps is described for the first time.(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this study was to describe the detailed localization of the novel oxygen-binding molecules, neuroglobin (Ngb) and cytoglobin (Cygb), in mammalian retinas and to determine whether Ngb and Cygb are neuronal or glial proteins in the retina. METHODS Antibodies directed against Ngb and Cygb were used to examine their patterns of(More)
This study provides a detailed description of immunolocalization of two oxygen-binding proteins, neuroglobin (Ngb) and cytoglobin (Cygb), in the anterior segment of healthy human and canine eyes. Specific antibodies against Ngb and Cygb were used to examine their distribution patterns in anterior segment structures including the cornea, iris, trabecular(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the distribution of 2 intracellular oxygen-carrying molecules, neuroglobin (NGB) and cytoglobin (CYGB), in specific retinal cell types of human retinas. METHODS Specific antibodies against NGB and CYGB were used in immunohistochemical studies to examine their distribution patterns in human retinal sections. Double-labeling studies(More)
Dipotassium-trioxohydroxytetrafluorotriborate K2[B3O3F4OH] was listed as a promising new therapeutic for cancer diseases. For in vitro and in vivo investigation of its antitumor effects 4T1 mammary adenocarcinoma, B16F10 melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma SCCVII were used. The detailed in vitro investigation undoubtedly showed that K2[B3O3F4OH] affects(More)
