The permeability of the amphibian oocyte nuclear envelope in situ has been determined for three tritiated dextrans. The envelope is a sieve, restricting molecular movement between the cytoplasm and nucleus. The patent radius of its pores is about 45å.
The ability to detect unusual events occurring in the environment is essential for survival. Several studies have pointed to the hippocampus as a key brain structure in novelty detection, a claim substantiated by its wide access to sensory information through the entorhinal cortex and also distinct aspects of its intrinsic circuitry. Novelty detection is… (More)
Alternative splicing of CREB (cAMP response element binding protein) and CREM (cAMP response element modulator) mRNAs in separated pachytene spermatocyte, round spermatid, and elongated spermatid fractions and the germ cell-derived immortalized cell line GC-2spd(ts) was studied by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Both primary germ… (More)
Although we fundamentally agree with Schilbach et al., we argue here that there is still some residual utility for non-interactive scenarios in social neuroscience. They may be useful to quantify individual differences in prosocial inclination that are not influenced by concerns about reputation or social pressure.
