We colocalized nitric oxide synthase (NOS) activity in epithelial cells that surround the salivary gland duct in female Dermacentor variabilis with NADPH diaphorase histochemistry and immunohistochemistry using a polyclonal anti-endothelial NOS. Using size-exclusion chromatography, a fraction with a molecular mass of about 185 kDa that had diaphorase(More)
Results Our expression studies indicate that a regulatory relationship might exist between FOXA2 and Pkd1l1. Furthermore, Shh and FoxA2;ShhcreER embryos display abnormal Pkd1l1 expression. Indeed, previous studies identified FOXA2 binding regions upstream of Pkd1l1, in both human and mouse. Our work has revealed the two regions to be non-homologous, but(More)
