Chronic salt loading up-regulated the expression of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (NOS) mRNA in the supraoptic nucleus (SON) and paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus with a concomitant increase in NOS activity in the posterior pituitary. Once daily ip injection of N-omega-nitroarginine (N-Arg), a NOS inhibitor, significantly inhibited NOS(More)
Changes in galanin mRNA content in locus coeruleus neurones of the rat were studied after reserpine treatment (10 mg/kg s.c.) using an in situ hybridization technique and an alkaline phosphatase labelled oligodeoxynucleotide probe. An increase in galanin mRNA content in locus coeruleus neurones was detected as early as 3 h after reserpine treatment when(More)
Novel seven N-fatty acyl derivatives (degree of substitution 0.78-0.96) of a microbial galactosaminan were prepared in 59-79% yields by its reaction with fatty acid anhydrides in aqueous acetic acid-methanol. N-Acetyl and N-propionyl derivatives were soluble in water, aqueous 2% sodium hydroxide, and aqueous 2% acetic acid, but N-higher fatty acyl (> C6)(More)
The distribution of three calcium binding protein mRNAs in the rat cerebellar cortex was investigated using alkaline phosphatase labelled specific antisense oligodeoxynucleotide probes. Calbindin D28k mRNA was detected in the Purkinje cells, parvalbumin mRNA was located in the Purkinje cells and also in basket/stellate cells of the molecular layer.(More)
The histopathological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural morphologic characteristics of a tumor in the subcutaneous tissue of the chest of a 19-year-old female Japanese macaque were investigated. Consequently, the mass was diagnosed as a malignant mast cell tumor (MCT). Tumors were present in both mammary gland portions of the anterior thorax. Both(More)
