Antibodies have been raised against synthetic peptides derived from the predicted primary sequence of the human cocaine- and antidepressant-sensitive norepinephrine (NE) transporter (NET). One antibody (N430), raised and purified against a putative intracellular human norepinephrine transporter (hNET) epitope, detects hNET expression in a stably transfected(More)
The mouse tumor cell line alpha TC1-6 was used as a model system to examine the post-translational processing of proglucagon. Determination of the mouse preproglucagon cDNA sequence and comparison with the published sequences of rat and human preproglucagons revealed nucleic acid homologies of 89.1 and 84%, respectively, and amino acid homologies of 94 and(More)
Several types of short axon cells of the mammalian olfactory bulb have been described after Golgi impregnation. Two of these types have been observed in our material after treatment with the NADPH-diaphorase procedure or after immunohistochemistry for neuropeptide-Y (NPY). The cells stained by the two procedures have similar morphologies and distributions.(More)
Using conventional immunocytochemical techniques, we have examined the morphology and distribution of somatostatin-like immunoreactive neurons in the visual cortex of albino rats between the first postnatal day and maturity. In the adult, somatostatin-immunoreactive neurons were observed in layers II to VI but were concentrated in layers II and III. These(More)
Using immunocytochemistry, we have examined the morphology and distribution of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide-like immunoreactive neurons in the visual cortex of albino rats whose ages were closely spaced in time between the first postnatal day and adulthood. In the adult, immunoreactive neurons were located in layers II to VI but were concentrated in(More)
Immunocytochemical techniques were used to investigate the morphology and distribution of avian pancreatic polypeptide-like immunoreactive neurons in the visual cortex of albino rats at various ages from the first postnatal day to adulthood. In the adult, immunoreactive neurons were located in layers II to VI but were somewhat concentrated in the deeper(More)
The region of the paraventricular nucleus-dorsal anterior hypothalamic area (PVN-DAHA) previously was implicated in the control of tonic FSH secretion. However, the role that this hypothalamic area plays in governing pulsatile FSH release is unknown. To examine this question, radiofrequency (RF) lesions were produced bilaterally in the PVN-DAHA of adult(More)
NPY exhibits a broad distribution throughout the body. NPY has been localized in neurons that synthesize norepinephrine or epinephrine and also in many cell bodies which are not catecholaminergic. Coexistence of NPY and several other peptides has also been observed. Accordingly, NPY displays a wide variety of functional activities depending on its location(More)
