Previous studies of the cholinergic sympathetic innervation of rat sweat glands provide evidence for a change in neurotransmitter phenotype from noradrenergic to cholinergic during development. To define further the developmental history of cholinergic sympathetic neurons, we have used immunocytochemical techniques to examine developing and mature sweat(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor patients exhibit an increased peripheral demand of fatty acids and protein. Contrarily, tumors utilize glucose as their main source of energy supply. Thus, a diet supplying the cancer patient with sufficient fat and protein for his demands while restricting the carbohydrates (CHO) tumors thrive on, could be a helpful strategy in improving(More)
The long-term effect of betamethasone on the myelination of commissural and associational fibres was investigated in fetal sheep. We studied the corpus callosum and subcortical white matter by electron microscopy. Axons were subdivided into classes according to their axonal diameter: class I: < or =0.65 microm; class II: 0.66-0.84 microm; class III: > or(More)
The expression of neuronal growth regulating factors (Ni 35/250, GAP-43) were studied immunohistochemically in the plastic telencephalic song system and in the cerebellum of the canary. In the myelinated song nuclei (HVc and RA) growth promoting and inhibiting molecules could be detected, whereas in the white matter tracts of the cerebellum only the neurite(More)
