Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons show a transient peak expression of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) during periods of axonal outgrowth prior to synaptogenesis, suggesting that AChE has a non-enzymatic role during development. We have previously shown that perturbation of cell surface AChE in cultured embryonic rat DRG neurons results in decreased neurite(More)
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) can promote neurite outgrowth through a mechanism that is independent of its role in hydrolyzing the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It has been proposed that this neuritogenic capacity of AChE may result from its intrinsic capacity to function in adhesion. In this study we directly tested this hypothesis using neuroblastoma cell(More)
Data from our laboratory and others demonstrate that acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is expressed transiently by neurons during periods of neurite outgrowth preceding synaptogenesis, suggesting an extrasynaptic function for this molecule. These findings, along with reports that AChE shares amino acid sequence homology and structural similarities with known cell(More)
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is the enzyme that hydrolyzes the neurotransmitter acetylcholine at cholinergic synapses and neuromuscular junctions. However, results from our laboratory and others indicate that AChE has an extrasynaptic, noncholinergic role during neural development. This article is a review of our findings demonstrating the morphogenic role(More)
Two hundred and seven patients (151 males and 56 females) were patch tested with a battery of plants, potassium dichromate and formaldehyde. Sensitivity to Parthenium hysterophorus. Nerium indicum, Calotropis procera, Eucalyptus sp and Mangifera indica was found in 60.87, 23.64, 15.46 andl2.08% patients respectively. One hundred and twenty six patients (92(More)
Clinical and epidemiological data on 782 patients of psoriasis collected from a clinic in north India is presented. Psoriatics accounted for 1.4% of the total dermatology out-patients. There was a male preponderance. Three fourths of the patients had over 50% involvement of the skin surface. Severity of the disease was same in both sexes. Plaque type(More)
Two cases of epidermolytic hyperkeratosis are described, one having a generalised variety along with mental retardation, nystagmus, unilateral breast atrophy and intermittent divergent aquint, and the other having the localised variety associated with mental retardation, ventricular septal defect, sensorineural deafness, hypoplasia of first left metacarpal(More)
Augmentin (Amoxycillin 3 . gm combined with 250 mg clavulanic acid) and ampicillin 3.5 gin and I gm probenecid orally were evaluated in 50 patients for treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhoea. Success rates of 80% and 100% were obtained with augmentin and ampicillin with probenecid respectively in non-PPNG strains. None of 4 PPNG strains responded to(More)
