The immunohistochemical localization of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)- and aspartate-containing neurons was demonstrated in the guinea pig superior olivary complex, using purified antisera to GABA and aspartate, respectively. Medium-sized oval GABA-containing neurons were found in the lateral superior olive, and bipolar medium-sized GABA-containing neurons(More)
The immunohistochemical localization of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)- and aspartate-containing neurons was evidenced in the rat deep cerebellar nuclei, using purified antisera to GABA and aspartate, respectively. Most GABA-containing neurons had small cell bodies and were scattered unevenly throughout the deep cerebellar nuclei. The medial cerebellar(More)
Antisera against aspartate (Asp) were prepared by immunizing rabbits with Asp conjugated to bovine serum albumin by glutaraldehyde, after which the antisera were purified using an Asp-immobilized epoxy-activated affinity column. The purified Asp antiserum showed no cross-reactivity, except for a 3% cross-reactivity against D-Asp. Asp-like immunoreactivity(More)
The immunohistochemical distributions of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)- and aspartate-containing neurons were studied in the guinea pig vestibular nuclei using purified antisera to GABA and aspartate, respectively. Most GABA-containing neurons had small cell bodies and were scattered throughout all regions of the vestibular nuclei. The largest number of(More)
Assembly of the eukaryotic 20S proteasome is an ordered process involving several proteins operating as proteasome assembly factors including PAC1-PAC2 but archaeal 20S proteasome subunits can spontaneously assemble into an active cylindrical architecture. Recent bioinformatic analysis identified archaeal PAC1-PAC2 homologs PbaA and PbaB. However, it(More)
