In the present paper a reappraisal is made of the persistence and size of telencephalic matrix areas in normal adult specimens of a lizard, Podarcis sicula, using a recent in situ marker of cells in the S phase, the Proliferating Cell Nuclear Antigen (PCNA), belonging to the cyclin family, proteins that regulate the cell cycle and that can be(More)
The Proliferating Cell Nuclear Antigen (PCNA) is an auxiliary protein of the DNA polymerase delta, belonging to the cyclin family, which attains appreciable levels only in those phases of the cell cycle in which DNA synthesis occurs. Using an immunocytochemical method that exploits this proliferative marker, we observed a certain PCNA positivity in the(More)
The role of the hyaluronate receptor, CD44, is well known in adult mammal astrocytes where it modulates neuron-glia interactions. However, no data exist regarding its expression in other vertebrates during their development. In order to detect the expression of CD44 in the chicken and its possible involvement in glial precursor migratory patterns during(More)
Microtubule-associated protein-1B (MAP1B), and particularly its phosphorylated isoform MAP1B-P, play an important role in axonal outgrowth during development of the mammalian nervous system and have also been shown to be associated with axonal plasticity in the adult. Here, we used antibodies and mRNA probes directed against mammalian MAP1B to extend our(More)
The mechanism of postlarval fish myotomal growth was investigated in trout (Salmo gairdneri) by means of morphometric and cytofluorometric analysis. The mechanism by which new fibres are added during postlarval growth (hyperplasia) is not fully understood. In histological cross sections these new fibres have a small diameter which give the muscle a "mosaic"(More)
The suitability of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) immunohistochemistry for the study of myosatellite cell proliferation in three subadult carp (Cyprinus carpio) stages (11, 15, 17 cm) was examined. They were injected intraperitoneally with BrdU and fixed one hour late. After fixation and dehydration, white myotomal muscle and small intestine samples were embedded(More)
