The supratrigeminal region (SupV) receives abundant orofacial sensory inputs and descending inputs from the cortical masticatory area and contains premotor neurons that target the trigeminal motor nucleus (MoV). Thus it is possible that the SupV is involved in controlling jaw muscle activity via sensory inputs during mastication. We used voltage-sensitive(More)
We investigated conditions for selective solubilization of the intermediate filament (IF) of BHK-21 cells, and found that a cationic detergent, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), was effective for rapid dissociation of IF into the monomeric form. More selective dissociation was performed with a combination of CTAB and Tween 40. The CTAB-dissociated(More)
