Abnormal brain serotonin function may be characteristic of several neuropsychiatric disorders. Thus, it is important to identify polymorphic genes and screen for functional variants at loci coding for genes that control normal serotonin functions. 5-HT1D beta is a terminal serotonin autoreceptor which may play a role in regulating serotonin synthesis and(More)
A panel of 257 RFLP loci was selected on the basis of high heterozygosity in Caucasian DNA surveys and equivalent spacing throughout the human genome. Probes from each locus were used in a Southern blot survey of allele frequency distribution for four human ethnic groups: Caucasian, African American, Asian (Chinese), and American Indian (Cheyenne). Nearly(More)
The fine structure of Strongylocentrotus purpuratus testes has been examined. No obviously important differences appear to exist between the description reported here and the published fine structure of testes obtained from other sources. The most useful fixative was found to be a mixture of glutaraldehyde-paraformaldehyde.
Phosphorylation and activation of p38 MAPK and NFκB pathways, along with the resulting overproduction of interleukin IL-1β, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor a (TNFα) is a hallmark of inflammatory disorders. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-3 PUFA) supplementations are known to exert anti-inflammatory properties by reduction of keys cytokines and enzymes(More)
This work shows the existence of differences in RNA profiles as obtained from blood cells of two LSD-affected persons. These had received slightly different concentrations of LSD yet their RNA profiles between them, and those of control patients, are remarkably different, especially regarding the 4S peaks. Further work is now being done in our laboratory in(More)
