Cartilage tissue from four different areas of the articular surface of the talar trochlea was analysed by light microscopic morphometry in the case of a juvenile collective (7 years of age), an adult one (30 years of age) and a senile one (80 years of age). The following observations were impressive: 1. With the exception of the cytoplasm fraction in the(More)
The present paper describes an efficient tyrosine hydroxylase immunohistochemical method combined with [3H]thymidine autoradiography to identify, in the same tissue section, substantia nigra pars compacta dopaminergic neurons and quantitatively determine their neurogenetic timetables both in control animals and in homozygous weaver mice. The experimental(More)
Two monoclonal antibodies directed at determinants on human B lymphocytes were produced and characterized by indirect immunofluorescence. The antibodies, BL13 and BL14, were found to be specific for B cells, since they did not react on red cells, platelets, granulocytes, monocytes or T lymphocytes. BL14-associated antigen was present on most of the(More)
As exogenous markers of DNA synthesis, 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdU) and tritiated thymidine ([(3)H]TdR) have revolutionized our ability to identify proliferating neuroblasts and follow their fate during the development of the central nervous system. The effect of the incorporation of these molecules into DNA on cell proliferation, migration and(More)
The current paper analyzes the development of the male and female rat cerebellum exposed to hydroxyurea (HU) (300 or 600 mg/kg) as embryo and collected at postnatal day 90. Our study reveals that the administration of this drug compromises neither the cytoarchitecture of the cerebellar cortex nor deep nuclei (DCN). However, in comparison with the saline(More)
The results of the few studies on the effect of the thyroid status on nitrogen metabolism have been inconclusive and/or contradictory. In an attempt to elucidate this important relationship, we have studied the effect of experimental hypo- and hyperthyroidism on urea biosynthesis and related processes. We have found that the capacity of the liver to(More)
Generation and settling of Purkinje cells (PCs) are investigated in the weaver mouse cerebellum in order to determine possible relationships with the fissuration pattern. Tritiated thymidine was supplied to pregnant females at the time that these neurons were being produced. Autoradiography was then applied on brain sections obtained from control and weaver(More)
The present study evaluates the usefulness of the principal component analysis-based cluster analysis in the categorization of several sub-phenotypes in the weaver mutant by using several morphological parameters from the cerebellar cortex of control, heterozygous (+/wv) and homozygous (wv/wv) weaver mice. The quantified parameters were length of the(More)
Postnatal development of the cerebellar cortex was studied in rats administered with a single dose (2 mg/g) of the cytotoxic agent hydroxyurea (HU) on postnatal day (P) 9 and collected at appropriate times ranging from 6 h to 45 days. Quantification of several parameters such as the density of pyknotic, mitotic, BrdU-positive, and vimentin-stained cells(More)
Cell generation and survival are investigated in three different neuronal populations of weaver mice: Purkinje and fastigial neurons in the cerebellum, and dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta. Tritiated thymidine was supplied to pregnant females at the time that these neurons were being produced. Autoradiography was then applied on(More)
