UNLABELLED One of the main concerns regarding organophosphate pesticides (OP) is their possible toxic effects. Doses that do not produce acute toxicity are capable of altering the structure and biochemistry of different tissues and organs by production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Curcumin (CUR) is the main substance in Curcuma longa (Zingiberacea)(More)
This study analyses whether the pig paramyxovirus of blue eye disease (PPBED) infects the central nervous system (CNS) utilizing anterograde and retrograde peripheral nerve transport systems. The virus was injected into muscle and skin, and inoculated per nasum. The presence of PPBED was detected by an immunohistochemical method using polyclonal mouse(More)
The human intestinal pathogen Giardia lamblia is a flagellated unicellular protozoan with pronounced medical and biological relevance. However, the basic physiology of Giardia trophozoites has been sparsely studied, especially the electrical and ionic properties of their cellular membrane which are virtually unknown. In this study, we were able to record(More)
Glioma cell line C6, transfected with tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) cDNA under the control of the glial fibrillary acid protein promoter (C6-THA cells), elicited a reduction in the apomorphine-induced turning behavior when they are implanted in Parkinson's disease models. Nevertheless, dopamine (Da) release has not been explicitly demonstrated nor has a(More)
The pig paramyxovirus of blue eye disease (PPBED) produces central nervous system (CNS) damage leading to death in piglets. However, when PPBED was injected into the muscle and came into contact with hind limb peripheral nerves and was transported to the CNS, it did not cause death and could be a mechanism by which to induce protection. This study analyses(More)
