The present studies were carried out to determine if tyrosine hydroxylase phosphorylation in rat brain striatal synaptosomes is activated by dibutyryl cyclic AMP treatment. Incubation of synaptosomes with [32P]orthophosphate, followed by immunoprecipitation and sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, produced a band of radioactivity(More)
Ascaris is a genus of parasitic nematodes that can cause infections in humans and pigs. During 2010-2013, we identified 14 cases of ascariasis in persons who had contact with pigs in Maine, USA. Ascaris spp. are important zoonotic pathogens, and prevention measures are needed, including health education, farming practice improvements, and personal and food(More)
These studies were carried out to characterize the activation of rat striatal tyroxine hydroxylase produced by depolarization of the medial forebrain bundle and to evaluate the possible role of cyclic AMP as a mediator of this activation. The enzymatic properties of tyrosine hydroxylase following in vivo depolarization were compared to those produced by(More)
