Intravenous injection of mice with soluble complexes of highly avid rabbit antibody to egg albumin, prepared by dissolution of equivalence precipitates in large quantities of antigen, resulted in a purely mesangial localization of the complexes. When animals received three injections of complexes per day for 1 day it was noted that precipitates dissolved in(More)
Rabbits were given injections of preformed complexes of purified goat antirabbit glomerular basement membrane antibody and rabbit antigoat immunoglobulin. When the animals were killed 24 hours later, examination of their kidneys revealed diffuse glomerulonephritis with widespread areas of localized loop necrosis, associated with extensive accumulations of(More)
Intravenous injections of mice three times a day for 3 days with soluble complexes of 3 mg. of moderately avid rabbit antibody to chicken egg albumin prepared by dissolution of equivalence precipitates in 80 times the equivalence amount of antigen resulted in a combined mesangial and loop localization of immune complexes. With complexes formed from antibody(More)
The sensory cortex participates in emotional memory but its role is poorly understood. Here we show that inactivation of the higher order auditory cortex Te2 in rats during early memory consolidation impairs remote first- and second-order fear memories but not the association between two neutral cues. Furthermore, Te2 inactivation prevents changes in the(More)
The auditory cortex is involved in encoding sounds which have acquired an emotional-motivational charge. However, the neural circuitry engaged by emotional memory processes in the auditory cortex is poorly understood. In this study, we investigated the layers and regions that are recruited in the higher order auditory cortex Te2 by a tone previously paired(More)
The authors studied the binding of steroids with Blastokinin (BKN). They confirm that progesterone is the steroid that has a greater affinity for BKN than estradiol or testosterone; the latter is hardly bound to the protein at all. They also show that the presence of estradiol interferes with the formation phase of the BKN-progesterone complex, while(More)
Recent findings have shown that the auditory cortex, and specifically the higher order Te2 area, is necessary for the consolidation of long-term fearful memories and that it interacts with the amygdala during the retrieval of long-term fearful memories. Here, we tested whether the reversible blockade of Te2 during memory consolidation may affect the(More)
Immunohistologic and electron microscipic studies were performed on the kidneys of rabbits given daily intravenous injections of porcine thyroglobulin in amounts adjusted to the immune response of the individual rabbits. Glomerular lesions were restricted to the mesangium, were characterized by varying degrees of proliferation of mesangial cells and(More)
