The freely diffusible radical, nitric oxide (NO), has been assumed to act as a retrograde signaling molecule that modulates transmitter release. Acetylcholine (ACh) is known to function as a typical neurotransmitter. In the present work we have examined the presence of both transmitters (NO and ACh) and their possible relations in the rabbit spinal cord. In(More)
New facts about control of nuclear milieu were recently described. Because calcium is known as an important cellular regulator we designed this study to describe temporal calcium kinetics in neuronal nuclei in canine neocortex after ischemia-reperfusion injury. Seven-minute global cerebral ischemia was followed by reperfusion phase lasting from 0 to 24(More)
A new model of transient global cerebral ischemia in dogs with minimal measures of intervention is described together with a simple scale for evaluation of functional outcome. During pentobarbital anesthesia, a global cerebral ischemia lasting seven minutes was induced by a four-vessel occlusion and a controlled systemic hypotension. The reperfusion phase(More)
BACKGROUND In order to provide a morphological basis for the understanding of the role of nitric oxide (NO) in autonomic preganglionic neurons, the present study was designed to clarify the localization and distribution of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate diaphorase (NADPH-d) activity, a marker of NO synthase, in the rabbit spinal cord. METHODS(More)
Present study is designed to examine an effect of Stobadine, a new cell-protective agent with antiarrhythmic properties, on survival, electron microscopic changes in microvasculatory bed of selected brain areas and acid-base parameters of arterial blood after global brain ischemia and reperfusion. Forty dogs (weighting 6 to 15 kg) were anesthetized using(More)
Activity of cholinacetyltransferase (ChAT. EC 2.3.1.6) and acetylcholinesterase (AChE, EC 3.1.1.7) was monitored during occlusion of arteria cerebri media dx. (MCA) in five areas of the brain cortex, in nucleus caudatus and in the thalamus of the ipsilateral and contralateral hemisphere. After 1 hour of MCA occlusion ChAT and AChE activity was reduced in(More)
