The purpose of this study was to search for vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-like immunoreactivity and VIP-mediated effects in cultures containing cells from the mammalian retina. VIP-like immunoreactivity was detected by indirect immunocytochemistry within 6 days after plating dissociated retinal cells from embryonic day-19 rats. In(More)
A culture system was used to screen for drugs that can protect mammalian retinal cells from damage induced by hypoxia. Using a special incubator, cultures could be made hypoxic for defined periods. Phase contrast photomicroscopy facilitated comparison of retinal cells before hypoxia and 1 to 2 days after hypoxia. Using 2- to 3-week-old cultures, certain(More)

The effects of methylmercuric chloride (MMC) on the growth and cell membrane of the ciliate protozoan Tetrahymena pyriformis GL were studied. The compositions of fatty acids in the cell membrane lipids, which were extracted from cells cultured in medium containing MMC at 30 and 20 degrees C, were examined. As compared with control cells, 30 degrees C-cells(More)
CD4+CD56+ lineage negative malignancy has recently been considered as plasmacytoid dendritic cell (PDC) leukemia/lymphoma. We investigated immunophenotypic and functional characterizations of PDC leukemic cells in one case. Lineage markers were all negative except partially positive CD11c and positive CD117, indicating malignant cells were leukemic PDCs(More)

The effects of the mercuric compounds methylmercuric chloride (MMC) and mercuric chloride (MC) on growth, cell composition, and glucose uptake were studied in the ciliate protozoan Tetrahymena pyriformis GL. MMC was the most effective growth inhibitor of Tetrahymena among mercuric compounds and sulfhydryl inhibitors; it completely inhibited growth of(More)
