The purposes of the present study were to verify the effects of a severe thiamine deficiency episode on spatial cognitive aspects and thalamic serotonergic parameters. The animals were submitted to a severe thiamine deficiency treatment that was interrupted after the onset of the last neurological signs. The results obtained confirm previous findings about(More)
Proteomic profiles of the thalamus and the correlation between the rats' performance on a spatial learning task and differential protein expression were assessed in the thiamine deficiency (TD) rat model of Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Two-dimensional gel-electrophoresis detected 320 spots and a significant increase or decrease in seven proteins. Four(More)
1. cDNA recombinants containing the VP3 and VP1 sequences of foot-and-mouth disease virus were isolated and the VP3-VP1 sequence was reconstructed. 2. The reconstructed VP3-VP1 sequence was subcloned into expression vector pEX31b and a fusion protein of about 62,000 Da was expressed. 3. When injected into mice, the fusion protein was able to elicit the(More)
