We have studied the number of arginine-vasopressin (AVP)-immunoreactive (IR) cells in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) in common voles, Microtus arvalis, with a strong (n = 18), weak (n = 10) or absent (n = 9) expression of circadian rhythmicity. Spontaneous expression of rhythmicity was assessed from records of wheel running activity and general activity,(More)
Testosterone secretory capacity of testicular Leydig cells was determined in fetal males of an aggressive and a nonaggressive genetic selection line of wild house mice. They were studied at Days 15-18 of gestation and on the first day after birth. A previously described morphometric method was used to quantify 3 beta-hydroxy steroid dehydrogenase (3(More)
Complement factor C5a is one of the most powerful pro-inflammatory agents involved in recruitment of leukocytes, activation of phagocytes and other inflammatory responses. C5a triggers inflammatory responses by binding to its G-protein-coupled C5a-receptor (C5aR). Excessive or erroneous activation of the C5aR has been implicated in numerous inflammatory(More)
